I don’t drink this every day. Not even once a week. But when I do I’m always grateful for it. It’s such a pleasurable unique combination of herbs and leaves. One of the most beautiful teas I’ve ever seen, so colorful and evocative. Just a pure delight and nicely caffeinated too.
Just another reminder that Tea-o-graphy may be one of the most innovative little tea shops in the country. They really care about what they’re doing and they’re using the very best of ingredients to push the envelope. I hope to get down to Taos some day and visit in person.
I would highly recommend this tea.
Flavors: Anise, Cardamom, Earth, Sweet, Vanilla
This is one beautiful tea! This was my first tea from teo.o.graphy and the result of a sweet amount of graciousness on their part. I’d ordered a Biscochito-inspired tea from another New Mexico based tea merchant. That tea, reviewed elsewhere here on Steepster was not only disappointing, it was downright confounding for their including the wrong type of anise. For those not familiar with biscochitos, they’re aniseseed flavored cookies and very traditional to New Mexico. They’re not biscottis, the name biscochito comes from the Spanish word for cookie, biscocho. Anyway, after the bad experience I did a quick little online search to see if another New Mexico teashop had a version. And that’s how I stumbled across teo.o.graphy up in Taos, New Mexico. They had a biscochito inspired tea and listed aniseseed as the ingredient. However, the other tea merchant also had listed aniseseed although they were clearly using star anise shells. So I just called teo.o.graphy up and the shop’s owner answered. I told her my story and she not only reassured me that they used aniseseed, she offered to send me a sample free of charge. Imagine my delight to receive four samples of their teas in the mail about a week or so later. Among them was Woodland Walk.
This tea is a visual knockout. People play around with labels and descriptions but this tea actually looks like the forest floor on a woodland walk. It’s colorful and captivating and I could immediately tell that they were using the freshest of ingredients. The minute the water hit the enfuser the smell just shot up from the cup. Just utterly delighted by this magical cup of tea. So much going on but a pure delight. Between the aromatics and the spiciness of the peppercorns, I couldn’t ask for a more illuminating discovery in a cup of tea. I made a pot of tea (a scoche under 3 cups) and managed to get a good second steeping from the infusion. I should also mention that the enfuser shows some lovely flowering petals after the steeping.
I’ve already ordered more of this beyond a sample and I can’t wait to try more of their delicious teas!! Bravo! Bravo!
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Floral, Fruity, Ginger
Sipping on this tea this morning. The licorice root is dominating the sip. The eucalyptus come in at the end of some sips, but I can’t detect it on every sip. I’m not able to pick out the tea under the other flavors. I like the spooky description of the tea way better than the tea it’s self. It’s not bad, it just isn’t as interesting as I hope new teas will be.
On a trip to Santa Fe I ran into some tea from this company and decided to place an online order for samples, excited to try a new company.
I followed the instructions of whisking it in just under boiling water and adding it to milk. It’s really good. The mixture of anise seed and cinnamon in milk is SO biscotti like and creamy. There is a little bit of soft herbal grit that are at the bottom the cup, remnants of the spices. I could see ordering more of this.
