I didn’t sleep well last night and I’m dragging through this day harder than RuPaul – the white rose tea earlier was low in caffeine and I desperately needed some, so pulled this beauty out of my M&K sampler out to give it a whirl and its wonderful. Brewed strong with jut a few rock sugar crystals, this tea has bold earthy tones and a mildly bitter/dry finish to it. It’s not overpowering ad actually compliments the sweet woodsy notes. I found the flavors to develop as it cooled and drinking it just barely warmed was delicious. The tannic/bitter flavors developed and were pleasant and not overwhelming to the overall taste of the tea. I’m planning a second steep later today, so I’ll update this post then! Overall a very nice tea and I’m happy to have enough for another brew left. So far I have not been disappointed by my M&K tea sampler – I can already feel the caffeine coursing through my veins!

Student ~ Spoonie ~ Lover of Tea

My name is Charlotte :) I’m 19, a student in college, owner of a nonprofit organization, and a tea fanatic. I battle multiple chronic illnesses that have taken away my ability to eat. Since then, tea has become my way to enjoy flavors again, and I find joy in every cup. The way I see it, we don’t choose our circumstances in life, but we do choose our reactions to them – So I choose to smile, laugh, and have a cup of tea.
