Upping my rating. Although the robust setting with basic grade makes for an undrinkable bitter taste prepared traditionally, I really do enjoy this being shaken in cold milk. So much so that it’s become a morning ritual of sorts this past week. This morning as I sipped it I savored the caramel sweetness and the gentle vegetal notes combined with creamy 2% milk. I realized after that that this deserved a higher rating. I would give this a better rating yet if it tasted good warm too, but I’ve had a change of heart to the point that I’ll definitely be placing another order in with Red Leaf, probably in July or August. (Depends on how my Verdant order goes, if I want to do a second one in a row)

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.
