I received this as a sample from one of my online orders and thought today was a good day to try it. To be honest, it wasn’t on my list of things to try..
Dry: Pretty pieces of orange, almond and gogi berries. Sad looking leaf quality.. tons of stems and very crushed leaves (disappointing..)
Liquor: Pleasant green that reminds me of straw for some reason? Smells of damp straw as well somehow. Peanut butter straw… musky like. Odd.. anyways moving on to taste.. Oh no wait, it tastes like musky peanut butter straw. It’s alright. I taste absolutely no chocolate (maybe due to having only one (what i assume to be..) cocoa nib.). There is a creamy mouth feel to this tea that is pleasing.

Overall: I won’t be purchasing. It is an interesting tea, but the musky peanut butter straw taste is not really for me. I like the mouth feel though. Also, I tried a second steep – it tasted more like straw peanut butter water. Weird.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 15 sec

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
