Sampled Duck Dinah’s blend this evening. A very interesting tea! One would think that chamomile and lemongrass combined with gunpowder green and cinnamon might be at odds in a tea — kinda like having someone gently rub your temples while kicking you in the butt! Somehow it works, though.

Very little dry scent, but there was much to taste. Each sip seemed to highlight one of the flavors in turn, which tells me that this is a near-perfect blending of ingredients. Don’t let the chamomile fool you; when it says “contains caffeine” they’re not kidding. It’s 4 a.m. and I’m still wide awake. I’m calm, though — very calm.

Looking forward to a second steep.

Bio

Artist, musician, homemaker.

Long-time haphazard tea drinker who’s gradually becoming more knowledgeable and better focused on tea’s subtleties and complexities.

Favorite teas are pu-erh, flavored blacks and simple unadorned greens. Also have a fetish for sweet, flavored matcha lattes. I’ve seldom tasted a tea I couldn’t drink and will try pretty much anything at least once.

Not big on ceremony, my teaware of choice is a large, lidded infuser in a large glass mug. Not very exotic, but it gets the job done.

SO happy to have found this group!
