Had to add this, which was surprising. My tea of this is probably more than a year old because I hadn’t progressed out of stash as my go-to tea source online and that was a while ago. The decaf version of this was on Steepster already but not the caffeinated kind. Also there are 3 companies that are Stash and I don’t know how to contact Jason to merge them.
This is not awful. Fairly tasteless unless sugar is added, but that’s to be expected for a tea that’s this damn old. Especially a looseleaf kept in a Stash tea container (the only indication of where I got it from). It’s obviously flavoured by hazelnut oil more than anything else from the sheen and also from the taste. I’m not a fan of nut oils but this is tolerable. I made this cup to evaluate whether or not I should throw this out and repurpose the tin but it looks like I might keep it. It’s not awful.
And I am disappointed that I haven’t heard back from anyone about the Vancouver teacupping class from anyone in that area or the Seattle area which is where I am driving from. Looks like I’ll have to go by myself.
