I picked this up at the christmas craft show – i wish more vendors there would consider smaller sizes. There were a few others that peaked my interest but i have zero desire to add a 100g to my cupboard of new teas that i’ve never tried. This was the only tea that offered a sample pack of the ones i wanted. (i’m hoping if go back they’ll have Callebaut Black Raspberry in particular ’cause man that smelled divine!).
i’ve never heard of this company before, but they are canadian and from out west, so i figured what the heck. This smells AMAZING! i figured if it tasted half as good, i’d be set. Steeping time on this one called for 10 mins, which sounded crazy to me so i stuck with 5 mins. I probably could have gone longer but the brew was pleasantly tasty. I could taste the puerh as a base but then the blood orange came through. Also to note, it was blood orange and not orange…the two being different beasts all together!
On the whole, this was quite nice, and if the company didn’t have silly shipping prices, i’d be more inclined to try a bunch more. As it is, i’ll try and catch them at craft shows and try a few more that way first.
