2 Tasting Notes

I really enjoy this tea. It’s what I have been drinking at night during the last couple of weeks when I want tea before bed. There is a nice combination of flavors that remind me of fall/winter and I always enjoy fruity teas. I recommend if you want that similar feeling for yourself – it makes for a nice comforting cup when you want one during cold nights.

Initially, I hated this tea. I would use it in a travel mug and let it steep through my commute (not the best idea!). But like any good cup of tea, the key is not to over steep and to wait for it to cool a bit. It makes a huge difference. You get a smooth vanilla flavor after a minute or two cooling off. The airy vanilla flavor makes for a good morning breakfast tea in the summers. And I recommend resteeping it at least once after you have your first cup. One review said the steeps are weaker in flavor, but you still get a nice full flavor anyways.

Overall, it is a good tea on nice spring or summer mornings and it is a tea you need to watch the steeping time. I don’t recommend using it in a travel mug cause the leaves can’t expand and breathe as well.

Flavors: Flowers, Vanilla

Twenty-something always on the look out for a perfectly brewed cuppa.

I personally preferences are: berry-flavored black teas, jasmine green tea, earl greys, and – most recently – any kind of rooibos.
