Lovely sample from TeaEqualsBliss.
Weirdly, I am getting more of a fresh cut cedar scent and taste.
Which, obviously is quite odd since there in no Cedar in this tea.
But, it really is making me think of a walk through the woods.
When I was a child, the only source of heat we had was a wood stove to keep us warm through the winter.
So, about this time of year we would be out in the woods cutting wood for all those long cold winter days.
This tea smells like those days to me.
Anyway, this tea is not anything like I was expecting but I really like it and the memories that stirred up with it:)

On the second steep, the citrus starts to come out.

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
