I really do love this tea. Several cups later, I’m trying to discern what exactly it is that makes me like it so much. I think a big part of it, for me, is the mouthfeel. I can’t explain exactly what it is (creamy is close not quite it… is it starchy, maybe?) but each sip just feels comforting. I’m bumping my rating up a bit after playing around with the water temp.

Since my first tasting note, I’ve tried it with sugar just once. I can see how it enhances the applesauciness (hey, new word!), but I prefer it without.

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
