I picked this up on my very first DT visit last month, where it was on sale and looked interesting enough to justify the purchase. Yeah, there’s definitely a lot going on in this tea. Pretty sure I recoiled when I first opened the bag and sniffed.

I really can’t imagine this as a hot tea (one day if I’m feeling saucy enough I might just try it), so I cold brewed a glass of it in the fridge for probably too long. It made a perfectly serviceable cold beverage, though I found the cinnamon a bit too prickly, and something was giving it a sickly edge. (Maybe it was the hibiscus, which everyone here seems to detest, but there are just too many options in the list of ingredients.) Not something I would get again, yet not nearly as unpalatable as the smell led me to believe.

Bio

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

Not really feeling the flavored teas lately, for whatever reason.

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops. So far I’ve only given ratings of 90 or higher if I actually get excited while drinking the tea.
