Thanks to skysamurai for visiting the Farihope plantation and sending the tea along. This one does need a long steep time, and its not a bold tea, but there is something comforting in the piney undertones and lack of bitterness. For an American grown tea I had low expectations and this earthy, mossy tea exceeded them. I would stop for a tour and I would get some of this tea if I were passing by.

Flavors: Earthy, Pine

I started drinking more tea about 10 years ago when I found that even my half -caf coffee was making me jittery and then sleepy after the caffeine wore off. While I started out with mostly Teavana, but soon expanded my tea cupboard to include lapsang souchon, pu-erh, Assam, and other strong black teas. I do enjoy oolongs, green, and other teas, as well as a nice tisane for an evening cuppa.
I’m not fond of jasmine or bergamont teas, though I’ll try anything once.
I am an avid traveler, hiker, soccer player/watcher.
I love trying new tea in new places, if you see something in my cupboard you want to try, hit me up for a swap!
