how could this not be in the database? i am dumbstruck.
i got a great tea of the month club coupon which gave me 15% off anything i ordered. happy day! and this was one of the new teas i chose.
surprise, surprise— it’s great! i don’t think i’ve ever had holy basil before, but this is a light cinnamon medium bodied puerh that has beautifully balanced fruit and spice notes worked in. while it is a cinnamon puerh, it’s nothing at all like steap shoppe’s cinnamon swirl bread. puerh fills in the bread role in steap shoppe’s blend, whereas in this one it is a pure puerh note (i’m not being critical of either… i think both are awesome!) the goji gives the fruit note a very original berry taste… not one i’ve ever found before. it also adds to the colour lent to the steep by all the cinnamon. looks beautiful and smells great dry.
affiliated words: comforting, soothing, energizing (the caffeine), balanced, light.
my only sad note is that it doesn’t resteep particularly well unlike the rest of verdant teas, but still well worth it. lovely!
