Looks like I’m one of many who has purchased Den’s Tea very impressive little sampler. For only three dollars it’s an amazing price; it also includes a coupon code for the cost of the sampler for your next order. Pretty sure I’ll be putting it to use.

Anyway onto what’s most important: the tea! Recently I’ve been really into savory, roasted teas and this fits that perfectly. I didn’t get the sweet note at all that a lot of people seem to have at first, but perhaps I wasn’t looking hard enough for it. What I got was a smooth, dark and mellow drink. This was a handsome cup of tea.

However, the second steep, from the very first sip I had I already noticed the slight sweetness. The roasted flavor seemed to mellow down to more of a ‘nuttiness.’ It was very different from my first steep, and that just reminds me of what made me fall in love with tea in the first place. The variations, even from different steeps of the same leaves just seems exciting to me, especially if trying a tea that I’m unfamiliar with.

I’m definitely looking forward to what’s to come next out of my little sampler.

Bio

I’ve been a bagged tea drinker for a very long time, just recently expanding my horizons to the world of loose leaf. You may notice from my “collection” I seem to be particular of a certain brand; I am definitely keen on finding other high quality online retailers and it seems this is the place to look! In terms of tastes, it’s hard to pick a favorite tea. For me, there’s a tea for every emotion. A tea for every craving. From sophisticated and refined tea, to wild and exciting blends, it’s impossible to get bored with all the choices tea has to offer.

I’m not really interested in any personal exchanges, but I’d love some retailer recommendations. I’m especially a sucker for retailers with samples, and purchases that come with storage tins (they keep my tea shelf so pretty~!).

Of course my interests aren’t limited to tea, but that’s what I’m here for, so this bio will have to do for now~!
