This was a great tea to start my morning. It tastes very malty. My first thought was that it tasted somewhat like good Beer! (Besides loving expensive tea I also love expensive beer, but I digress.) As the tea cooled I was tasting less of the malty ness and more of a honey. This is another great tea from thepureitea. Everything I have tried from them has been a success. I just smelled the remainder of my travel cup and the tea at room temperature smells very yeasty

I steeped it as recommended by the sample packet.

The leaves were truly pretty as some other reviewers have suggested. Curly and golden yellow.

I could drink this tea every day. It just has a great complex taste.

Bio

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
