Seabuckthorn? Okay, this is a new one for me, and Kusmi is still new-to-me as well. Always fun to try new things!

I steeped this gently after reading some comments that this is a bit finicky. Well, I think I hit the sweet spot, as this is quite yummy. Licorice with a hint of black tartness at the end, something fruity-sweet, a bit of creaminess, and a really weird flavor that I can only put towards seabuckthorn berries… maybe. It’s nice. Will I reach for it? I doubt it. It’s still unusual enough to keep on hand and finish up the tiny, cute tin that Ysurella sent me. Thank you so much!

I think this might also have been me… :) I’m glad you enjoyed it though.

Ysaurella

this one is not from me :)

I love seabuckthorn, but I keep passing this tea up at SOKO due to the licorice.

Darn it! Yes, it was from Angrboda, not Ysurella. I’m horrible for this, and need to start marking everything that comes with. I’m so sorry ladies. :(

OMG – I think I sent a small amount to you yesterday to try out, thinking you’d like seabuckthorn. Forgot about the licorice!

OMGsrsly

Oh, you did too. Well, I’ll try it! :) I might be surprised one of these days.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
