This was a bag I sipped down pretty quickly the first time I got it from Maya, and I just got another large bag from their sale. I can brew this twice, but anything past 2 minutes on the first steep will allow the bitterness to creep in. I can overleaf this tea to get a nice strong morning brew, and with only two minutes, the pecan and bourbony caramel comes through. The harsh base is still there, but I don’t mind a bit of bite in my morning tea. The second steep for 5 minutes is nicely praline and disappears from my cup quickly. I will say this tea does probably smell better than it tastes, but I’ll enjoy the whole bag :)

Flavors: Bourbon, Caramel, Pecan, Sweet

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!
