I managed to snag a bit of this from Whispering Pines during their “all orders doubled” special they ran recently. I have a doctors appointment in an hour so I need something to calm my nerves. This tea is a brilliant yellow, nice and cheery – just what I was looking for.

This is a nice little cup of tea. Not too floral, but the notes are definitely there. I’m not really getting a lot of prominent coconut either. A very subtle tea as far as the flavoring goes, but I think it works well as a nice light cup. The green tea base isn’t bitter which is nice because it allows the flavors to linger a bit. Just a light, cheery, soft, slightly floral relaxing cup of tea. I think this one will be perfect when I’m in the mood for it.

LOL – we both posted tasting notes from Whispering Pines within the same time span. Did your order come today, too? This sounds like a really interesting tea. Bummer that the notes don’t come through, though :(

Yes! It did! And I got leelanu smoke too we really are tea twins!!

Babble

Haha.. awesome. Which smoke level did you get? Did you get any other teas besides these two and the chai?

Mrnixonpants

I got the recommended level which I believe was medium high and boy it sure does smell smokey! I’ve never had a smokey tea before so this will be my first go. I plan on trying it tomorrow I wanted to try it right away but I was headed to the doctors with a tumbler… Didn’t want him to think I’d taken up smoking and was lying (bc I know he’d ask lol). I just got the 3 teas… Which did you pick?

Mrnixonpants

With this order I wanted to pick out some things I might normally overlook or things I hadn’t thought of trying. I’m still pretty new to tea so I’ve been pretty “safe” with my choices this time I went wild haha!

Babble

I got 1 oz of the light and 1 oz of the medium light. I’m normally very sensitive to smokey teas so I wanted to try it at the lightest level. I had the light tonight and it was quite pleasant.

Looking forward to seeing your review!

Have you ever had Lapsang Souchong before? That is a similar type of thea, except it is a black tea that’s smoked.

Mrnixonpants

No, I never have that I recall – I have tried some samples I haven’t logged but all the foreign tea names confuse me. I’m pretty sure that’s something I haven’t tried.

Babble

Okay, it’s pretty easy to find at tea shops. If you forget the name, just ask for the “smokey black tea” and they should know what you’re talking about ;)

Hello, my name is Vicky. I’m 23 years young and enjoying life.

When I’m not drinking tea, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and our five adorable rats – Derby, Brinkley, Fintan, Fievel, and our newest edition Hadley.

I’m a dog groomer and have been for five years. My job is a lot of things, but it most certainly isn’t boring!

My other interests include : the universe and science in general (especially physics), music of all different genres, Detroit Lions football, buddhism, documentaries, travelling, and learning about myself.

“We rarely pause to acknowledge the impermanent quality of the body. We remember being children and we know our bodies have changed, but it rarely occurs to us that there is not one cell remaining in our body from childhood. The physical matter of the child’s body is gone; only a memory remains. Every cell has been replaced by new cells. But the mind creates the delusion that this is the same body.”
