drank Kawakawa Fire by t Leaf T
60 tasting notes

I bought this sample over a month ago but it has been sitting in my cabinet after the feijoa scare. I found som courage this am and brewed it. The kawakawa is very large leafed and peppery, the only other elements in the tea are lemon grass stalks and dried ginger. I am glad I finally tried it because I really like it. There is a heat and a sweetness to it that are similar to a chai. I can imagine that with a little honey this would be one of my favorite teas when I had a cold. I think it will also work for the times I want something like a chai but don’t want the caffiene.

Sounds wonderful! Only a sample, huh? Perhaps you should buy another sample so we can drink it together when you come home in 6 weeks! :) Is it peppery like a yunnan?

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
