drank Flaming Prince Charming by T-We Tea
2815 tasting notes

Tea of the afternoon from the T-We shop in the Crocker Galleria. I went in looking for a rooibos blend but decided to try this instead. It’s a blend of white tea, coconut and cardamom.

I happen to love cardamom and this smelled really good in the shop. I wanted something with low caffeine so hopefully this doesn’t keep me awake later on. I’d say the cardamom is very strong in this blend and overpowers the other ingredients a bit. The coconut is present in the background as a bit of a milky/creamy taste. It’s a bit difficult to pick out the flavor that the white tea is contributing to this. Overall this is a really nice blend if you like cardamom. I tried mine plain but I think it would be good with a touch of sweetener and would be VERY good with coconut milk or coconut sugar. hmmm.

Did you know that cardamom is supposedly an anti-depressant? there’s something about it that is making me happy. ;)

Flavors: Cardamon, Cream

What is the smallest quantity they sell tea in at their brick & mortar location?

TeaBrat

You can go in and buy a cup of tea for $3. Otherwise it’s a box of tea that has 25 servings. Looks to me about 3-4 oz. in the box. I would love if they had sample kits!

TeaBrat

cool, I didn’t see any option like that in the store. I’ll have to ask next time I go in !

Marzipan

There are several I would love to split if you’re interested.

Marzipan

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
