“…much like Arizona My eyes don’t shed tears, but, boy, they pour When I’m thinkin’ ’bout you”
PS: This tea is currently available. Not sure why steepster says it is not.
This tea truly does awaken the senses. I feel a picture of Arizona’s Red Rocks would be a fitting accompaniment for this tea if you’re not so blessed to be able to enjoy the Arizona desert landscapes in person. http://everypictures.blogspot.com/2012/07/red-rocks-arizona-united-states-of.html
There is a beautiful picture of red and orange dust being carried over the red rocks by the wind in the above link. That’s what this tea reminds me of. The flavours of the tea come to your tongue like a warm desert breeze. As you let the tea roll over your tongue you will notice the different tasting notes. The spiciness of the ginger and tellicherry peppercorns. The comforting embrace of cinnamon and cardamom. The sweetness of white tea. An overtone of Sage completes the flavour profile as it brushes over and cleans your palate.
I was worried that this tea may be similar to evergreen spice due to a similar ingredient list, but it really is uniquely it’s own. The white tea really makes a difference giving it a sweeter taste than evergreen spice which has oolong as its base. Evergreen spice’s flavours seem to come in layers that are separated in time. Conversely, Cricket is like a warm breeze that carries that flavours to your tongue in one beautiful swoop.
Give it a try.
