I have wanted to try this tea for a while given that the ingredients sound like something I would like. I’m a straight tea fan, so I figured this would be straight tea with a bit of “oomph”. With that, I wasn’t disappointed. However, I was hoping that this tea would be more. When I drink a flavoured black, it needs to “sing” a bit – it needs to justify it’s existence beyond a straight black tea (which I was drinking exclusively prior to February). This one just doesn’t make the cut. It’s a nice, solid tea. I’ll finish my sample. But it’s just “meh”. Very pretty to look at though!

Bio

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
