When Sanctuary T offered their White Tea Brownies as a steepster select, I couldn’t pass it up. But… I couldn’t just buy the brownies. NO! Of course not. I also ordered the Sanctuary Sampler Kit, which is pretty cool. It’s this neat chipboard portfolio, with the five teas taped to the inside, and index cards that offer information about the teas, brewing, etc. It also includes a small package of T-Sacs and bamboo skewers.
I don’t really use T-Sacs, I have an abundant supply of them, since I bought them bulk to package samples of my own teas in, but, I don’t use them for my own tea brewing very often unless I am doing a side-by-side type of comparison or something. I just prefer my smart brewing device. But… I must say that the adding of the T-Sacs and bamboo skewers is a clever idea especially for those who are new to tea, which is who this sampler kit is obviously created for.
Anyways… The brownies were absolutely to die for, and now they are gone… but I do have more on the way, because Sanctuary T did a very evil thing and offered the discount through this past Saturday. Of course, I’m going to order MORE if you do that!
Back to the tea. This is the first tea that I’m trying from the sampler kit. It smells so nice. Nutty and spicy. I love the smell of cumin and I’m thrilled that someone (besides me) puts cumin in their blends!
This has a very nice balance of sweet and spicy. There is an underlying smoothness to the taste too. Very nice. I like this one a lot!
