While going through my stash the other day, I came upon a few teas that I was apparently hoarding and hiding from myself … including a full package of this that I bought from the first blending. Yay! I thought I had finished this off … So glad I get to enjoy more of it.
This is easily one of the best blends that Frank created … however, I must say that this first blend was superior to that which I received in the Christmas sampler box from 2011. That batch from the sampler box was good, but this … this was great. I notice that time has taken a bit of a toll, but, not so much that I’d lower the rating on this by much if this was my first sampling of it. I considered this to be a 99 with that first pouch, now, after two years, I’d consider this to be somewhere like 93 or 94. Time has taken a toll, but not much of one.
Still rich, creamy, vanilla-y and deliciously yum.
