Tea of the afternoon……
I have been wanting to try this tea for quite some time. It kind of reminded me of the Golden Snail from Harney & Son’s that I love and is currently out of stock. I picked this up when thepuriTea was having a great sale around Black Friday…I kind of went nuts and ordered a sample just about everything I have been wanting to try.
I have to agree with others that the sample packaging is kind of annoying. There is not much else to do with an open pouch but to find something else to put it in as the pouches are too small to even fold them over. My other issue is that there is nowhere near enough tea for the number of cups they say you will get out of a sample. They say 10-12 cups, I say 4 or maybe 5 if you are lucky. It is enough to get a good idea of the tea, but just barely. If I had paid full price for the sample, I would have been disappointed.
This one is very similar to Golden Snail for those of you out there waiting for its return. Malty, cocoa-noted, slightly roasty. If I were out of Golden Snail, I would certainly consider picking some of this up! Very satisfying!
