Hooray! Sampling lots of Christmas tea today. When I opened the pouch the first thing I noticed was that the dry leaves smell sweet and mildly fruity. It is earthy but not fishy at all. I have never smelled a quite like this before, but I have also never had anything with osmanthus.

The steeped tea is also mild and earthy and there is a nice mineral taste. This is very good, it is reminding a lot more of the puer from Teavivre and not at all of the puer from Southern Season. My oldest daughter, who just started drinking green tea for its benefits even though she doesn’t care for tea, likes this pretty well and is on her second cup. O.O. She hates black tea.

I have made s second steep. I will post how well it held up when we finish this pot. Delicious! Many thanks to my wonderful hubby who ordered this for me!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
