I’ve had this one for a while and for some reason i put it in a box and put it away cuz I’m weird like that, anyways I found it tonight and decided to have a pot with Lance. It is delicious maybe thats why I put t up for later I dunno but it is very nice, malty, nutty, chocolately with hints of caramel and some slight floral type notes, interesting. We had another steep of it this time a little longer and the flavors were much stronger and more complex but very smooth and delicious. The leaves of this one were pretty too, curly, fuzzy little black and gold leafes with a slight earthy aroma.
I really enjoyed this tea :)

this tea is really warming and delicious, the elderberries and the spices are perfect :) I’ve been using this one as a mulling spice for my mulled dr.pepper and it is excellent!
Great blend for the winter months.

This tea blend is Delicious! One of my fav WP blends already I need to get some more. It is very nice and soothing when made warm and it is extremely refreshing when made cold. The notes of pine are perfect with slight minty notes that play really well with the pine. The spicy notes of the cinnamon and cloves are really well balanced too. If I could drink a snowy christmas tree I bet it would taste like this tea, its like a piney winter wonderland in your mouth. Piney and minty with warming spicy notes, it don’t get much better than that. A true wilderness tea, I must get more soon so I can share with my brother. I’m saving my last bit of this batch for us to drink outside by the fire, I think it would be great tea to enjoy outdoors.

This is a very nice roasted tea with an interesting creamy mouthfeel.
When steeped light this tea had a nutty roasty taste with a creamy mouth feel, delicate and nice.
When steeped a little longer about 3 minutes and so on the taste was very roast and nutty still a lot more so than on the lighter steep with pleasant vegetal notes and a creamy sweet almost buttery smooth mouth feel , very nice.
Steeped at about 10 minutes this tea is much darker still roasty and nutty but this time also slightly woody, the vegetal notes were still pleasant tho now slightly bitter but not in a bad way at all and the creamy smooth mouth feel was still very much present.

I really like this one, It is a very interesting I love safflower and the elderberries are a really nice touch in this one.
Manitou Mist is a very calming peaceful tea to me, I’ve only drank it about 3 times so far but I realized that I like it best late at night before bedtime it really relaxes me.
I think it may even be nice to drink right before meditation too, I’ll try that next time I have it.
I’m really liking Whispering Pines Teas. I just placed a new order with Brenden tonight I’ve just about tried them all, just a few more to go.
There will always be many Whispering Pines teas in my house from now on, an instant favorite place to buy tasty teas online :)

This one is much better cold brewed, I knew it would make a great iced tea, it is sweet and strong and bold and brisk with a touch of spice that reflects the dry leafe aroma. Delicious, I up my rating on this one after cold brew. Awesome good refreshing tea :)
