Okay, I need to try to make this a quick note b/c I need to get back to work.

Watching this infuse is a real treat: the leaves open up beautifully! Steeped color is a gorgeous red-brown.

And it’s very, very tasty. No bitterness or unpleasant astringency at all. Incredibly smooth, malty, and… almost caramel-y? I know this is unflavored, but I’m getting an aftertaste that almost reminds me of a caramel-flavored black. YUM! I’m definitely getting sweet potato in there too.

This is my new go-to when I’m craving an unflavored tea. It’s really incredible.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
