Just got my second Arthur Dove order in. The box smelled amazing and juicy! I got 250g of two blends I liked from my first order and a selection of 10 random teas to try based on my stated preferences. This was a sample included in my order and smelled so intriguing that I had to start with it first. It’s blended to match one of the songs Arthur composed. When it was dry the eucalyptus and mint combo was most prominent, but when steeped the scent of jasmine shows up most. It tastes very complex! Rooibos, a touch of eucalyptus then mint. It’s almost savory for a moment. There are so many flavors jumping to the front and fading away making room for another flavor to appear. The flavors are all pretty mellow which works since there are so many. It’s so intriguing! I’m listening to the accompanying song on Spotify. I’m not quite sure what flavors translate into different elements of a song for me, but it’s a fun experience listening to what Arthur felt like the song should taste like! I want to try this cold steeped next time!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
