One of the MANY things I am REALLY liking about Whispering Pines Tea Company is that the owner isn’t afraid to be creative! They are NOT afraid to try something new! They appear – to me at least – they are NOT interested in an ordinary or easy or safe tea. This…I LOVE. They enjoy taking a chance and I think it has really paid off!
Black tea, elderberries, lemongrass, spearmint, smoked pine-needle essence are the ingredients in this tea.
Dry aroma was earthy, herbally, woodsy, dark, and had a hint of lemon.
The color of the post-infused liquor is that of a Dark Brown/Grey-ish combo.
The ‘wet’ aroma is a gentle “in the woods” type smell – perhaps – next to a patch of fresh herbs.
The taste…is AWESOME. I really had no idea I was going to enjoy it as much as I am! The black tea base is what I would consider to be medium in strength but the pine, lemon, and mint flavor pairings are at the perfect-for-my-palate level of intensity. The ratios are VERY NICE!
It leaves a peaceful and minty-fresh yet hint of green-herbal goodness left over and behind.
I totally agree with the product description’s end note…
