This really tastes grassy, with a bit of honey and caramel. It says there are tobacco notes too and that may be the case – there’s something dark and heavy amongst the other flavours, and the honey notes coat your tongue at the end of the sip. It doesn’t walk a fine line between bitterness and astringency; it dances along it. It teases. But mostly stays on the favourable astringent side.

I think this is a tea that would grow on you, until you find it absolutely essential for your morning routine, and then you realize with sudden sadness that it’s limited edition and you will never get any more.

Yeah. It’s one of those teas. Good thing I’ve got 40g. That’s better than 10g. Or 0.

Mm, honey. I’ll have to put this one on the list for my next trip to David’s; haven’t been there in a couple months. :)

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
