This is one I forgot to review. I picked it for my wife because it is decaf. She cannot tolerate caffeine. I figure she deserves way better than most of the grocery store decaf. This one dry smells like grain. I steeped it for 3 minutes in a Finum basket with microwave heated water. Not the best way IMHO but it turned out OK. This was a nice gentle tea, soothing and relaxing. Just what I needed this evening. Decaf is never going to taste as full as regular tea but this is still pretty good. What I got was slightly malty and earthy or wood. A solid decaf black.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
