Yum yum. I never cease to be amazed by the lovely base of this tea. So unlike your typical flavored green base! I have gotten a little fatigued on flavored greens (that aren’t florals… so mainly fruity greens), but this one is an exception. I now can pick out that this tea is full of awesome natural chestnut notes (before I described them as just nutty, buttery and even cookie-ish). I want more flavored greens like this one.

Agreed the green base is great. I also like the bergamot ETS uses. It is no wimp and just different.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
