I’ve been reading about this tea since I started on steepster back in March and it’s been pretty much sold out since then. So needless to say, I’ve been super excited to finally try it.

It doesn’t dissapoint. It’s sweet and full of spices. I can’t for the life of me figure out how an unflavored tea leaf can taste so strongly of cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet potato pie. It’s kind of a shock to the system. The first sip caught me totally off guard. As I continued to drink it my head just started spinning trying to figure out all the flavors in that little cup. So I stopped thinking and just enjoyed it. It’s not a heavy dark cup at all, which tends to be my preference, but the flavors are so crazy delicious that I can imagine this being a great afternoon tea.

I’ve had a few cups since. I’ll definitely need to stock up before it runs out again (warn me when that’s close Stacy!)

TastyBrew-Absolutely, we will definitely be doing a warning when we are down to 10% stock left. We tried to purchase the correct amount for the year but it has only been a week and we have already sold 10% of the stock. I didn’t anticipate that people would be buying such large quantities. This may just be the initial rush, due to it being out of stock so long.

Steepsterites certainly hyped the tea enough to boost sales! :-)

Not a hype which implies deception. This tea sold out before and has just come in from the next available harvest. This is wild not farmed tea. Even the experienced tea people who have been in the tea business for years agree that this is a top of the line tea.

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
