drank Far Afield by August Uncommon Tea
980 tasting notes

Big’ol pot that depleted almost the entire sample.

Imagine an orange. Or maybe the flavor of mild orange in a sphere. Now imagine that mildorange flavorsphere sitting on a modest bed of earthy lemon verbena and a scattering of sweet blackberry leaves. Next, moving up, a thin core of savory sage is sprinkled into the mildorange flavorsphere so that it both extends down into the verbena and overflows the top of the mildorange flavorsphere and coats it like caramel on an apple. Then, finally spicy ginger envelopes the entire flavorsphere, making a sort of spicy-ball.

It could be better. For some reason I want it to taste more like tangerine than orange. Overall quite nice but not worth the price for me.

Flavors: Citrus, Earth, Ginger, Licorice, Orange, Orange Zest, Sage, Spicy, Sweet

Abandoned the rating system again. Too much work.

Great tea is unforgettable. Good tea is sometimes forgettable. Mediocre tea is forgettable unless I’ve drank enough of it to form an impression. Bad tea is unforgettable, unfortunately.
