I told a friend I was drinking this tea and he said “… isn’t mistletoe poisonous?” That was an interesting moment or two. The first link that popped up in google was all “OMG don’t eat any part of it ever you could DIEEE”… but they wouldn’t be allowed to put it in tea if it were deadly, would they? Aaaanyway…

Got a sample of this from Janelle because I was super curious to try it… and it’s pretty tasty! I’m not getting very much anise at all (which is great because I don’t like anise). It smells like cloves and vanilla and craisins, and tastes much the same, but I do get a little green tea and something kinda interesting that must be the mistletoe. Mmm… I’m glad I got the chance to try it. =]

Bio

Hi! I’m a linguistics major at a certain infamous east coast tech school, I write, I rock climb, and I have a mild obsession with Diana Wynne Jones.

I’m also Russian, which means I’ve been drinking tea all my life — always loose leaf, and always black. Black teas are still my favorite, but of course I dabble in a bit of everything. I really like ceylon, I recently discovered puer, and I’m having a lot of fun exploring flavored black teas (and making silly fandom blends on adagio…).

My tea cabinet may or may not be accurate at the moment, as I am transitioning between locations…

Rating system (work in progress):
95 – Wow!
85 – My favorites. Cupboard staple material.
75 – Really good. Debating whether to keep it around…
65 – Quite pleasant, but not for me. I probably won’t (re)purchase.
55 – Just okay.
