Finally getting around to tasting this one from last month. I should be able to finish it off in two more sittings with the given leaf to water ratio in the instructions, so that’s a plus when it comes to my sipdown goal. Considering I’m having three more of the blends coming soon!

This one smells really interesting. Spicy and orangey, but also rich and sweet. The wild rice, vanilla and carob in this is giving it a really interesting scent of cookie dough or perhaps sweet challah bread.

I really like this one. To me everything really works and I love the toasted wild rice as a base for an herbal… it almost reminds me of the buckwheat tea, except with a lot of other extras. There’s a faint lingering sweetness from the dandelion root, I think. This one certainly screams fall to me. Mmmm, I would like to have this one to curl up with in the evenings occasionally.

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: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
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: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
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.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
