Auggy, I finally get it. BAKE-Y!

Let there be light!!!

This is the 1st tea that has actually screamed bake-y to me. Some have likened it to plain biscotti or perhaps an unsweetened baked good. I have to agree. Tannic and bready…but kind of crumbly bake-y like biscotti or shortbread would be. I like it. I’ve had several cups straight and a few with milk and sugar…both very good. Thomas Sampson makes a good breakfast cup in my opinion. The tea is hearty and seems to carry a decent caffeine buzz. I’m relatively unfazed by caffeine, so this means something. :)

I tend to drink black teas, such as this, in the AM and then move on down the milder chain throughout the afternoon and after I get home from work. Just as I was beginning to get a little sad about finishing off the last of my sample, I noticed something.

40 NEW SETS OF SERIES 2 HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE SITE!
AND……
SERIES 4 IS UP AND RUNNING.

Word.

lol…I just ogled the site for a few minutes and read everything. I have to wait until Friday to buy more tea. I’m going to pick up Series 2 and 4. I hope Series 4 is 5oz worth of goodness.

I love this post, Lena! And man, I haven’t bought any of the A&D tea yet. Each batch is tempting… but I don’t really care for two of the teas in series 3 in general. Series 4 though… yunnan! That’s pretty exciting. HRM.
