Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox Round #3 – Tea #13
Why do I have a feeling the Whispering Pines blends will just keep getting better? This one is nicely done. No chocolate here but WP has some mighty chocolatey leaves when they are on their own. Plenty of fresh mint and a nice balance of spices. The cup has a scent of chocolate even before taking a sip. This is a very unique blend! I used a little bit less than two teaspoons and the only complaint with this tea is that the black tea is almost a little too light. Both cups had a yellow color to the cup… not exactly like a black tea! But I wouldn’t change the black tea used at all.
Steep #1 // few min after boiling // 3-4 min
