I was brewing this tea the other day and decided to read the label on the bag to pass the time while I was waiting. The description said: “isolated within a pristine tropical rainforest” and it hit me – That’s it! – That’s where this weird musty scent is coming from. I couldn’t quite put my finger on the aroma and flavor before, it reminded me of something swampy in a good sense. Now I think it’s must be how a tropical rainforest smells like – damp wood and ferns.

I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea all my life. I always take tea plain without adding any sweetener or milk to it. Would love to swap for tea, feel free to contact me about it.
