MilitiaJim insists it was “desalinated seaweed tea” but not in a bad way.

I got this as a free sample (it was a limited time run announced May 25 on twitter @WorldofTea) and it arrived today. It arrived with an adorable brewing card that has space for notes. As seen in my prior Company Review, the shipping, packaging, and customer service of this store is impeccable.

I of course choose this tea for it’s name. To my surprise I am enjoying it very thoroughly, I was expecting a novelty tea. A very light mild, earthy and sweet black tea.

It could have withstood more steeps, however I was going away for the weekend and had no desire to leave the leaves all weekend. I believe this would be an excellent tea to bring into work and drink throughout the entire day with lots of steeps.

I dig the name. Though I have not smelled camel’s breath, I bet it is… um… earthy…

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
