Received this as a free sample with an order.

Not really an herbal tea fan, as I tend to like the TEA! punch in the face that a good black provides, but considering my bias against herbal, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s oddly spicy and oddly sweet, and has a very complex variety of flavors that somehow works despite how far my eyebrow raised when reading the ingredients that went into this tea.

I probably won’t purchase it on purpose, but if a friend has it or if I receive another sample, I won’t say no. :)

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
