A very nice blend. I could probably down a pot of this on my own over a tea time. :)

Dry it smells a bit like hay. Earthy and warm. Steeps very light, even at 4 minutes. A bit of oolong in the background but to my tastebuds, the black tea, whatever it is, overshadows it. There is a tiny bit of astringency at the end.

This is the second time I’ve seen a Whispering Pines tea review today; had never heard of it previously. Sounds like they have this blending thing figured out.

I hadn’t heard of them either. They posted a thread a few days ago with a special offer:

Buy 3 samples get 1 free, plus free shipping on samples. Figured that was a good deal to try new teas. :)

An FYI, Blackburnian Blend has been re-designed. It’s MUCH better now :)

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
