drank Handsome Brute by Savoy Tea Co
2939 tasting notes

A tea named “Handsome Brute” should evoke visions of Jack Sparrow and that captain with the octopus face playing Liars’ Dice. This blend isn’t rum-heavy enough to do that.
The pineapple and coconut beg for a pineapple wedge and a cherry speared with a toothpick served on a tray by a pool boy while you’re listening to the “Pina Colada” song.
Not only do I not have a pool boy, I don’t have a lawn boy, either, so after surviving a sweaty round of mowing, I’m treating this as a lovely tropical mini-vacation, excellent on ice.

One to enjoy in hot weather; not for serious sipping purposes come fall.

Steepster “geezer;” tea barbarian who has no systematic method for storage, preparation, classification, or rating; lover of strong unleaded builders’ tea. Never quite grew up—I cut and glue, play with Legos, design kids’ curriculum, and play with fifth graders every Sunday.
