I hate to over-inflate ratings, but this tea is well-deserving. I originally ordered this tea on a whim about a year ago because it was pretty cheap for how much tea you received (think of it like a loose-leaf Arizona tea). The Tea Blag swears by this tea as if sweet baby /t/sus made it with his own two hands.

The tea looks like honey (there are pictures in the full review for proof). It has a great malty smell that kind of reminds me of a good brown ale or stout. And once you taste this stuff, you’ll realize it’s fairly smooth and has a lot of honey and nutty overtones. There’s rarely any dust as you continue to re-steep the tea.

Pro tip: we at The Tea Blag add a little honey to each new brew. That way, as the malty-ness of the tea disappears (after 5+ steeps, mwahaha), you’re left with a tea that’d do pretty well for deserts.
