10 Tasting Notes

This tea pleasantly surprised me. I’ve never had a white chai before, and that’s essentially what this is. The spiciness often associated with chai is offset by the white tea, making it mild yet flavorful. I’ve been drinking it in the evenings as a digestive aid (plus, it smells heavenly in the cup).
Flavors: Black Pepper, Ginger
This is comfort in a cup — and it smells AMAZING! Kind of like my English Breakfast and sleepytime herbal blend got together and had a love child. The black tea gives me the wake-up I need, while the herbal ingredients add flavor dimension and keep me from going into caffeine overdrive. I enjoy it best with a bit of honey and cream.
Flavors: Creamy, Lavender
Certainly not a favorite. I love raspberry, but this is just a little too strong for me. I might try blending it with another black tea to tone it down. Also, it might be good iced, but I didn’t like it enough to try. Perhaps I’ll give it a go, otherwise it will languish in the cupboard.
Delicious. I love the subtle floral notes and the pleasant aftertaste. The second resteep is still good, and even the third is better than your garden variety oolong (though noticeably more tannic than the first and second steepings). Not quite worth the price tag, in reality, but it had been so long since I’d indulged in a high quality tea that I caved (and the salesman gave me 10% off). No regrets. I’ve greatly enjoyed this tea every morning since.
