mmmmm this one smells so nice. like christmas. I actually think this one would be tasty steeped in hot apple juice for a taste similar to apple cider… or something..i dunno, that’s what the combination of the smells is making me think of. Again, there’s a subtleness to this taste when brewed. I’m not sure what it is about devotea teas…but the smell of their teas seems to be much less intense than the taste that comes through when brewing. Maybe i jsut need to brew for longer than 3 mins…but i’m wary of having the tea turn bitter. I do have to say that more and more, i’m quite enjoying whatever the black base is that they use in their blends. it’s nice, smooth and doesn’t have any atringency to it :) thanks for sharing these terri!
