This is a very roasty oolong. I steeped it 4 times. The first steep smelled like burnt coffee but was definitely a creamy tea. Dark chocolate is not supposed to be creamy. It’s bitter. I took a whole class on chocolate and tasted what raw cacao tastes like and all types of high quality dark chocolate taste like. And this resembles that perfectly. And I love it. I will be keeping the last teaspoon of this :) thank you Shelley_Lorraine for adding this! I had this all day today!

I had this all day today, too! :D

There’s a new harvest of this coming in the next week or so. If you’d like, I can let you know what it gets in. It’s tastier than the one you got! :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

That would be amazing! Could you please?!

This tea takes on so many different flavor attributes depending on how you steep it. You should try whispering pines super-long steep recommendation too (10 min). Some day, I’ll need to try their suggestion for adding ice cream…

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I did the 10 mom steep my first steep. It was very roasty!

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Sure could! I’ll also have the most amazing tieguanyin in at the same time!

Speaking of 10 minute steeps, you should try my top-secret rolled oolong steeping…

Okay, it’s not top secret, but it’s definitely awesome! :)

Let me know if you’ve got any questions!

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Ohhh! I just saw that you live in SLO! :) Whispering Pines actually started in Arroyo Grande two years ago. It’s beautiful over there!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I’ve had this tea in my cart for the padt week ha ha along with another.
No way! Where at? Is there a storefront??

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Ohh, fun! :) The cart saves for 1,000 hours, so you’re good ;)

Whispering Pines has always been (and probably will always be) a home business. We lived right across from broadway bagel. :) I worked at splash cafe for a while while my company was starting up.

You may recognize some of the sights in these videos of me :)

I worked at splash café for a little when I first moved here! But now I’m a full time baker at slo baked bakery. Broadway bagel? I though there was only the house of bagel which I’m am not a fan of at allllllll! I love panera breads bagels and spreads, but nothing is as good as the bagels back home in salinas at the bagel corner.

Bio

Hi! I am a 20 year-old from Salinas, California. I attended school in Monterey and played softball for my JC. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where I got a job as a full time baker and I LOVE my job! I have always loved to bake and cook since I was young and actually started my own cupcake business in highschool to help pay for my senior year as well as pay my way through college. Once I moved my cupcake business was put on hold, but I still love what I’m doing now. I love to work with children and hope to transfer soon to a college for child development or family psychology. I would also love to go to culinary school! I have a lot of things I want to do and am determined to do them! I am a huge tea enthusiast. I love to read about tea. Learn about tea. Make tea. Drink tea. Taste new flavors.

I am also very big on reading and always enjoy a good read. If you ever have any reccomendation never be afraid send it my way!

I am really excited to be a part of this tea community and can’t wait to trade tips, teas, recipes and treats!

PM me with any of the above and I can’t wait to meet you all!
