2 Tasting Notes


This is the closest approximation to my favorite tea from Alaska. It’s not quiet the same as my Samovar Tea from Kobuk, but it certainly curbs my cravings and makes me smile.

It’s very rich and flavorful. It warms you up like drinking a hot cider and the orange and clove provide a sweet balance to the heat of the cinnamon. No need for added sugar or milk as it is wonderful on its own. Definitely one to maintain in my cupboard.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Orange

This was the tea that got me into drinking tea. It is rich with orange, clove, and cinnamon. It’s great for a palate that likes sweet as well as savory flavors because they are both there and compliment each other greatly. I moved away from Alaska in the last year and haven’t been able to find anything close to this tea. The closest is a generic market spice…but it isn’t anywhere near the same. I’m having a friend send me some in a care package and am seriously considering ordering it online…the shipping prices would be worth it.

Can’t recommend this tea enough. It is bu far my favorite and it is what I compare all other teas to. As my palate developed with this tea I have been able to expand into others. If you are a person who generally doesn’t like to drink tea straight up, you should try this one. I hated tea before I found this one, now I am all over the place….though this one still holds my heart.

For the longest time I absolutely could not stand the taste of tea or coffee. I always said that it tasted like muddy hot water. That was until I discovered a tea made by a local coffee and tea company in Anchorage, Alaska (where I lived at the time.) It was rich and flavorful and I absolutely couldn’t get enough of it and as time went by my palate matured and now I find myself in a new city and trying to explore new teas. It’s like an adventure in flavor and I can’t wait to really get it going.
