Thank you to the Tea Merchant for these generous samples!

This is one of the few packages that made me pause and admire it before tearing in to get to the tea. It was wrapped in tissue paper with a fancy wax seal holding it closed. The Tea Merchant logo was stamped in the wax. Of course, it doesn’t make the tea taste any better, but I still had to show everyone near me how neat the seal was.

This was one of the ones that I requested. It smells so delicious in the bag. It actually has a very similar taste to The Persimmon Tree’s Coconut Creme. I think that calls for a side by side taste test soon! I really like the white tea flavor here. It takes the lead with the coconut flavors adding to that. It’s very creamy and smooth. I would say this is for white tea lovers more than for coconut lovers, but it’s hard not to enjoy this no matter what you love more.

I KNOW I was SO SO excited by the packaging!! I wrote them to thank them for that! Wax seals are SO cool – I totally want one but really have no use for one lol maybe I will get one just for tea trades! Lovely recycled packaging and wax seal made my day. I was also showing to everyone around me :)

I too was super impressed by the stamped gold wax. It was as if I had stepped back in time and was being summonesed by the king…probably to be beheaded…I wasn’t even there, I never met the guy, it’s not my fault. Oh sorry, a little corny delusional interuption.

So true tunes&tea – for a moment I felt a bit refined, dignified, then I remember I would have been burned at the stake so I tore the package open!

Bio

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
