It makes me a little sad to see how underrated Fava Tea Company is in these parts. I think they deserve much more attention in the tea community (but I suppose there are many companies that do and I’m just biased since they’re local to me.)
I have a pretty vast tea collection and this is one of my favorites and one of very few repeat purchases. Usually by the time I’ve made it through 2 oz of one tea, there are a bunch of new teas out that I want to try to so it’s rare that I re-purchase something. This is an exception.
This tea is particularly pretty with its little tiny pink rosebuds. I find it to have a perfect balance between the fruit and floral notes. It has a bit of tartness to it that would probably lend well to iced tea, but also has a bit of chamomile so it’s usually a hot bedtime tea for me. The chamomile is barely detectable so this would probably be a safe bet for people who otherwise are not a huge fan of that.
I guess this is sort of a sipdown since I finished the last of my old batch, but I opened a brand new pouch and refilled my tin ASAP. This one will be staying on my shelf for a bit!
