I received this as a gift from our local Buy Nothing page. The original purchaser didn’t care for it and offered it up. I’d not heard of Vahdam before and she gave me 3 different teas to try.
I’ve been mixing it with other teas this summer to make pitchers of iced tea. This morning I had a cup and found it too bitter after steeping for 3.5 minutes with 200* water. I often hesitate to add to my tea but added a splash of skim milk and a tsp of sugar and enjoyed it on my patio. I think I’ll continue to use it for my iced teas and mixing with others but it’s not a “stand alone” tea for me.

Taste was woody and a dry with bitter finish.

Flavors: Bitter, Decayed Wood

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

In the early 2000’s, my brother worked for a grocery company that removed items from the shelves and I ended up with a cabinet filled with random tea.

After I finished that cabinet, I started trying new things and exploring the world of tea. Still exploring, still learning, and loving this community.

I tend to take my tea with no additions and quite hot. Though often I find myself having to reheat my mug due to distractions. I’m partial to herbals, white tea, green, and blacks. But I really will try anything once.
