Another adventure made possible by derk, thank you kindly! Opening the packet, the melba toast-and-chocolate scent nearly made me swoon. Even with a sloppy steep (I forgot to turn on the timer—this is why you should not trust me to cook Thanksgiving dinner), the flavor notes were all playing my song. The crust of toasted rye bread, with a little sweetness at the end. Dries the mouth just a little. Lip-smackingly good!

I have this tea too and I don’t know what page I should post a note to :P

Evol Ving Ness

Haha. Looking forward to hearing what your experience is like. Good to see you here. I was a bit worried after your last flu-incubator exposure comment.


I’m alive but still feeling blah, cuddling with my much loved chicken noodle and honey. There’s not enough tests here so I get to sit around assuming I may have a mild case of omicron, but not knowing (this is the worst part). The rest of my family is asymptomatic if they even have whatever this is, and I’m super jelly.

I too look forward to drinking this tea soon :P

Evol Ving Ness

No tests here either. Or the good masks, for that matter.

I hope you are ok and things just blow over without any drama.

Here, every time I clear my throat or blow my nose, I get a niggling thought. What a drag.


Different than the Persia Lahijan black tea. This is full leaf, baby. And dare I say not as good but still I love it so. It reminds me of a Mr. Goodbar.

Evol Ving Ness

Oooh, thanks for pointing that out. I haven’t opened the packet because I still have some of the other on the go.

I just assumed that this is the exact same tea re-labelled as some parts of the world are banned from accepting products from certain other countries for political reasons.

Oops. I was wrong then. Is this still made in Lahijan?

Evol Ving Ness

Also, I don’t know Mr. Goodbar, aside from the film. We may not have it here (‘though I am not certain).


Yeah, your assumption was mine regarding the difference between label and site name. This is grown in Lahijan, yes. Mr. Goodbar is a Hershey’s candy bar made of crap milk chocolate and peanuts. I scoop one up every now and then :)

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, looking forward to your review of it.

also, thanks for the chocolate bar explanation.

Evol Ving Ness

Also, CrowKettle, I really hope you are feeling better.


I was so confused when I received this tea, “I thought I bought Persia Lahijan something something,” until I remembered “trade embargoes.” :)

Still not up to trying this tea even though I’m super curious now, but I’m finally improving! I’ll make some tea note when I’m less stuffed up (also, I don’t have omicron; it’s just.. something else, hurrah!)

Evol Ving Ness

Hurray for the something else part! May that too pass quickly and easily.
