Wow, this is fantastic! I was skeptical, because the dry leaves smell rather grassy. But the taste is a floral honey, like wild honey, like the fancy jar of white gold honey I could eat straight up by the spoonful. The second steep is the best, though the first steep comes out better if I give it only 2 minutes.

FWIW, my order arrived faster than I expected, and although the tight vacuum packaging delays my childish “I want it now” diving into a newly delivered box of teas, and further requires a transfer to an empty tea canister (b/c I’m so inept at opening the silly vacuum pack), all is forgiven because the tea is so delicious.

Woke up one morning, January 2012, and simply couldn’t take coffee anymore. Every day since, have been amazed at how much better tea is—better tasting, better for my mental state.

Currently love black tea blends in the morning, sencha all afternoon, and white teas at night. Favorite retailers so far (not affiliated with any of course) are Den’s Tea, Harney & Sons, Butiki, Joy’s Teaspoon, and of course Verdant.

Other joys besides tea: books, travel, dogs, perfume, and Bikram yoga.
