From Tealet

This beautiful Sumatran black tea is grown in the mineral-rich, volcanic soils of Indonesia. This tropical paradise, produces a black tea that is naturally sweet with the taste of Washington Red apples. Great iced or hot.

The bag’s got a warm, bright bakery smell, like sesame honey buns fresh out of the oven. This softens in the cup and becomes rather inviting.

The first sip is all malty barleyness up in here. It’s a party in your mouth–now you see why the smell had an invitation to it. That invitation got sent to the right people, as the guests are all salty, brassy folks, probably sitting on the couch swigging hard cider while ever-so-casually discussing the virtues of bacon maple ice cream, which makes the vegans uncomfortable and shuffle closer to their homemade organic, locally-grown kale chips. (They weren’t invited, they just came because they’re your new neighbors and wanted to make a show of goodwill.)…

Haha! Very clever review, loved it :-) Now I have a clear vision of what can make a vegan bunch feel really uncomfortable!

Logging this one from memory, so the details are fuzzy, which is a shame. This tea deserves adjectives! I think it may very well be my favorite unflavored black to date. The flavor is rich and strong, with some grape/raisin notes. It reminded me of a darjeeling, but had none of the mustiness you sometimes get with darjeeling. I’m really going to have to drink this again so I can write a proper tasting note, because this isn’t cutting it. For now, just know that the tea is delicious. More details soon.

I went to their website to check out this tea and WOW pricey! :(

Oh I know, and 15 grams does not go far. I got this fancy tin of it, but the tea itself (tightly rolled leaves) just barely covers the bottom. I don’t think I’d ever be able to afford it, but I won it in a contest so I am living it up for now!

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Lol…that might be the most psychotic price I’ve ever seen…
