My world has been flipped upside down. Not in the negative “My life has been ruined” way but in the “Omg this tea is so amazing, it just changed my view on tea forever.”

At first I was a bit grouchy ‘cause … well, I could not for the life of me get the very long tea leaves to stay on the spoon long enough to get into my T-sac at first. Maybe I’m tired. Anyway, as soon as I poured in the water, this amazing aroma wafted out of the cup instantly. Of cinnamon and chocolate. YUMMO. By the time the three minutes of steeping was up, it had this wonderful raisin like smell. Think of the most delicious smelling pastry you can imagine. This tea smells better than that.

As for taste, I get all of those flavors, and it’s so good, so satisfying. I’ve enjoyed tea all my life, and yet I feel like my eyes have been opened. I didn’t know tea could taste like this.

Stacy, this tea is truly amazing.

This has a place in my cupboard forever.

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
