If garam masala ingredients got together and decided to compose a dessert-like tea symphony, this would be it.

The flavors here, unlike in so many flavored teas, don’t compete with the black base whose presence here is that of the main player: moderately bodied with very little acridity, especially for having been steeped on the longer side. The aroma is decadent—a bakery full of cinnamon buns: rich, spicy, and buttery notes which fully translate into the flavor.

Cardamom, coriander, and cinnamon in a very balanced ratio. A treat.
Also: Leigh, you are now a goddess in my book. I found out just after receiving your package last night that this was a limited edition tea and that DAVIDs is no longer carrying it. There’s got to be more than 50 g here. Sending serious tea hugs to Georgia. <3

Flavors: Butter, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Coriander, Maple Syrup, Toast

I spend most of my day with books, and tea has become a spectacular way of both beginning, breaking, and ending the day. I also hobby around in the kitchen and a rooftop garden in my spare time.

As for taste, I’m really into well-composed natural herbals with nutty, piny, vegetal, or floral notes as well as bold, complex blacks, including chais. Milky matchas and taros are favorite indulgences, too, but in all honestly, I’m here to learn more about tea and am hoping to make my way into Oolongs and Pu-erhs as I empty out my cupboard. All the same, I hope my logs in general tell a story of palate expansion, discovery, and a fair bit of fun. I’ll try anything once.
