Bought a cup of this at my local Peet’s while out running errands. Liked it so much that I went back and purchased a tin of it. I certainly did not remember trying this two years ago, though I still definitely like it.

I ordered a medium and they put two teabags in it. I should have taken them out a few minutes sooner or just used one and left it for longer. That said, even steeped a bit overlong, this tea was still delicious – extra large sips just brought out some astringency. Small sips were best, though, as it released the vanilla flavor very well and mingled it with the spices.

In my opinion, this tea is a tastier cuppa than the Peet’s Holiday Blend, which just seems to be spices and black tea.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
