I found out that the woman who was my son’s one to one aid at school is a tea drinker. She worked with my son for six years, and is just about the sweetest woman on the planet. She’s working with another child this year, but since I just found out about her love of tea I had to get her some for Christmas. She told me she is a Teavana fan, so I picked up some of this and one of their ceramic tumblers for her. Since I was already buying some I also picked up an ounce for myself. Because tea.
This is really nice. There’s a strong chocolate flavor along with some malt and leather. I used three pearls for my eight ounce cup, and I’ve resteeped the leaves twice. I’m pretty sure I can get at least two more steeps before the leaves are spent.
I wish I had some of Teavivre’s Dragon Pearls on hand so I could do a side by side tasting. I’ll have to do that at some point.
P.S. I’m also giving her North Winds from Whispering Pines and Earl Grey Cream from Zen Tea. Because tea.
