Really enjoyed this tea today. I can see why Christina loves this tea. Thanks for the sample Christina.

I just brewed it up in a mug today. Dry it smells so good- like a cake , but I’ve had many flavoured teas that smell great and fall short in taste. Not this one. It reminded me of my aunt’s homemade spicy molasses cookies. It was a little bit like a date bread too. The anise brought a nice sweet dimension to it. Maybe the raisins added that too. All the spices blended together nicely but what stood out was the chocolate, vanilla, cardamom, & cloves.

I am pretty sensitive to any added flavourings but was able to enjoy the whole cup with no problem. It really took me back to my aunt’s great baking. What a great cup!

Flavors: Anise, Cake, Cardamon, Molasses, Spicy, Sweet, Vanilla

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
