OH-MY-GOD…. I might need some good old fashioned smelling salts to get me up off the ground! I have been searching for a really good pear tea and Mighty Leaf’s Pear Caramel was divine but THIS tea (swooning…), well, as my little old Irish Catholic aunts who lived well into their 90’s would have said, “HOLY MARY MOTHER OF GOD!!!”
I just got an order of several tins from The Art of Tea and when I opened this one, well, it was undoubtedly the most incredible tea I have ever had the pleasure of burying my nose in. And it stayed in there awhile. And it didn’t want to come out.
Takogti has written about it so well and I’m shouting Hallelujah’s in agreement with her every word that I don’t need to go on and on here but I am going to order more immediately. I never want to be without this tea. I love Rooibos in a good flavored tea and have had many good ones but this tea is so over the top mere words (And I’m writing a book on tea so I have a lot of words to sling around and through the leaves and their various components…) simply cannot do this tea justice.
Oh, the agony of the leaves…. Oh, the piercing profundity of the empty cup. I think I’m going down in an old fashioned Victorian decline as the last of it is finished…
I’m not sure that I should even be writing this review. I’m not sure this is even LEGAL. Surely it’s an opiate of sorts and should be hidden. I for one am going to hide it in my house. I shan’t share this with a single soul!
