This is smoky, sweet, spicy and fruity?! This is so weird and I really like some weird in my tea. It steeps up super pink/red, but it’s got to be the beetroot because the tartness is chill and doesn’t overwhelm. It’s sweet in the sip which is bright and fruity with that hint of tartness and almost savory in the finish with mild spice and smoke which makes for a really intriguing mix. I think this is the 4th blend I’ve tried from Arthur that has lapsang in it, so avoid if you are smoke adverse. The neat thing about these blends is that the smoke is just an element, not the mail flavor taking over. Some of his blends are based off songs and this one is based off one he wrote and has on his website. It’s fun to listen while sipping to and try to match the flavors with the song’s mood. I had this yesterday as well. First cup was great, but it seemed to be missing something in the resteep.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
