350mL/180 *F water/however much leaf was in the sample sized package (2 tsp?)

The looseleaf is gorgeous! The little balled leaves look like fern fiddleheads. And, there are pretty little silver sprinkles and little chocolate chips. It also smells delicious! I can smell sweetness, maple, and cinnamon.

Steep 1: 2.5 minutes
Spices, strong flavour of honey and tea, flavours of pastries and maple, brown sugar. The tea flavour was a bit too strong for me, I will do my next steep for less time.

Steep 2: 1.5 minutes
Minerals, black tea (ceylon? something strong like a typical breakfast tea), malt, sweet, cinnamon

This is a nice tea for those who like brisk breakfast teas, but I personally find it a tiny bit tannic. However, try this as a latte/soy milk latte! It is absolutely fantastic! This is a really solid blend, and I like the flavours and look of it. Make sure you pay attention to steep time/temperature to avoid oversteeping.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Honey, Spices, Tannic, Tannin, Tea

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
