A sad sipdown. I read TeaTiff’s recent note about this one and remembered that I had one more cup of this left from my swap with her. It sounded extra delicious this morning. I’m also trying to work my way back to having multiple cups in a day, and I think if I go with teas I think of as “lighter” it’ll work better. This one is technically a black but there are enough other things in it that it doesn’t feel like one.

This smells so good. It’s in my top five smell-wise for sure. Cinnamon pastry with nuts and raisins, with lots of extra cinnamon glaze. The taste is great too, citrusy in warm way instead of being bitter. The vanilla and cinnamon flavors keep that pastry feeling going, and between the smell and the flavor I could almost swear I’m drinking a bear claw. Bumping the rating up just a little and adding this to my list to buy.

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
