drank Hark! by Handmade Tea
346 tasting notes

The founder of Handmade Tea had me at “whiskey oak-smoked” with this one. The yerba mate base is given that very treatment. Peppermint and cinnamon round out the rest. The introduction is smoky, while mint dominates the middle. The aftertaste reminded me a bit of Keemun. Even with my prejudice against peppermint, this was a heckuva holiday blend.

Bio

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
