So thank you to Pekko Teas for this generous sample!

The dry leaves smell just like the taste is described, like jam and toast. Wet the leaves smell like something I cannot quite put my finger on, though it is a familiar smell. It’s rather pleasant though it smells nothing like jam and toast. Actually it smells a little like what I remember Marmite smelling like.

Wow! tastes just like they say it will. There is a dry toast and jam taste that comes out right at the front. The lingering taste is of a nice semi sweet jam with a hint of clotted cream. I feel this would make a nice noon tea. There is a lot of british going on in this, odd but good.

Bio

Well, to start, my name is Matt. I got into loose leaf tea my sophomore year in college. I was drinking some lipton tea in my room when I started thinking to myself that there has to be something more then just bagged tea. So I decided to do a web search and found out about loose leaf (you would think that this would have been an obvious thing but surprisingly it was not). I stumbled across a local tea cafe called Argo tea and decided to try it out. Long story short, I fell in love. From this one store I have started to branch out to all different types of tea from several different stores.

My favorit tea is very hard to choose since I like pretty much everything there is that I have tried. I have recently started getting into pu’erh teas, which is getting to be interesting. I am always looking for new a greater tastes when it comes to tea and am trying to better express my experiences with tea.

Aside from tea I am an actor in the Chicago area. I do mostly theatre and various film projects through out the Midwest. I recently started doing Voiceover work, which I have to say is very fun and easy going.

My number ratings are more random then anything. Since I have no idea half the time when I move the slider on the happy face meter what number will be showing up.
