From Annie a while ago, thank you so much for this unique tea!  I just plopped a yeti in a mug.  I also dumped the loose leaves from the package, that weren’t attached to the yeti to keep steeping in the mug while taking the tied-together piece out after a minute.  Not sure if I SHOULD have dumped the broken leaves into the mug, but I don’t like wasting tea!  The yeti in general reminds me of a sea urchin!  The flavor once you remove the uniqueness of the yeti from the cup, is a sweet, light white tea.  Once you sip down the majority of the trichomes (or ahem, the hair of the yeti) in the first steep, the second steep is much smoother, so possibly an initial rinse would also be a good idea.  The second steep was even better!  Even sweeter, even lighter — I don’t think leaving the few loose leaves in the mug made the tea bitter at all… I should have kept going with more steeps, now that I think about it.. 
Steep #1  // 1 yeti for full mug // 33 minutes after boiling  // 1 minute steep
Steep #2  // 31 minutes after boiling //  2 min

Discovery Tea Box – Tea Five

So, I’ve definitely creeped on Wendigo tea before – how could you not with a name/theme like that!? However, their shipping is a little steep and the teas they carry aren’t really unique enough in my mind to warrant a blind try of the company. I was really excited to see this in the box though; even if jasmine pearls are something I’ve had A LOT of exposure to I still like the idea that I’m getting to sample something from this company.

Really there’s not much special about this blend; it’s definitely really smooth and I’d say medium bodied. It feels very fresh, and I think the jasmine is pretty high quality/natural rather than done with jasmine “flavour”. Good ratio of jasmine to green base, also. Kind of sweet, like honeysuckles. Not the best jasmine pearl I’ve ever had but it’s also FAR from being the worst.

I’m thankful for the try!

AT once, this Chai blend is both sweet and savory. Spicy, but in a tasty, rather than overpowering way. Made a warm and flavorful cup for a cool evening.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Pepper

Thanks to SuperStarling! for this tea. Upon looking up this tea, I was ready to write it off. The whole premise and website seemed a bit gimmicky? I’m not sure that is the right word. Not that there is anything wrong with “character” or “themed” teas or things. I rather enjoy that normally. But, I have found, if the product is good enough, cutesy gimmicks aren’t needed.

This, I’m happy to report, proved that theory wrong. This is a wonderfully balanced oolong, hovering between roast and slightly fruity. Nothing too strong or bitter about this. A very pleasant surprise, indeed.

Flavors: Fruity, Roasted

This tea’s webpage implores you to “brace yourself” for “an imposing beast” that “leaves scorched remnants of other Chai teas far below ferocious wings.”

Have I just been schooled?

Does Wendigo keep its own Starling! on staff? An even more super Super Starling! ?

This tea is going to help me thru today. I can already tell it is going to be one of those days.
Such a fantastic tea to wake up to. It seems to be my dependable tea whenever I need that warming tea hug.

There is nothing I don’t love about this tea. I love the name, love the packaging, love the tea! I don’t drink unflavored teas that often but this tea proves to me that I need to. Such a fabulous tea. Raisin like with malty touches. No astringency. Just a smooth well balanced tea that I have been drinking every day for the past week. So Good!
