100

Goodness, this is an excellent tea. It’s biscuity with deep cocoa notes. There’s also a nuttiness and a smooth, sweet caramel finish. I lowered my water temp to 205° F, and it kept the tea from having any astringency. This is probably the way I’ll prepare this one from now on. It really is delicious. I think I fall in love with this tea a bit more each time I drink it.

I’m bumping my rating up to 100. This is a tea I adore.

I have four teas rated at 100, and three of them are from Whispering Pines. I might be addicted. :)

MzPriss

Yeah, it’s a problem. I have the same problem with Mandala and Verdant too

@MzPriss – You and kimquat have me hooked on Mandala. Thank you. ;-)

MzPriss

You are very welcome. It’s good stuff too. And Garret is awesome.

Veronica

Stuff that was out of stock or new stuff? Or both?

MzPriss

Marzipan – you really do. Reeeeely

Veronica

Oh mercy. I made a new deal with myself that I will only make one online order a month. Looks like July will go to Whispering Pines. :)

Marzipan

It was out of stock last time there was a % off code. :(

MzPriss

That’s because it’s so f-ing good

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Truth! I have never sold out of a tea faster than this one!

Veronica

Yeah, I have no doubt there will be a rush on this one again. Too many of us only bought one ounce last time. Won’t make that mistake again! I want to try the Bi Luo Chun, too!

TheTeaFairy

Hehe…that’s why I hoarded on it…muahahaha!!!

Bio

Tea obsessed since 2010.

Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
