I discovered Artful Tea on Etsy. Every once in a while, I’ll visit the etsy site and check out the tea purveyors to see if anything captures my interest. This is a company that did.
I like the packaging: I like attention to details like lining the boxes with tissue paper and each of the samples were pre-measured in the DIY type of teabags and then put into glassine envelopes that were then folded down and “sealed” with a cardstock label and tied with a little bit of twine cord. It was simple and rustic looking and very nice. It didn’t look like something that you’re going to pick up in your average supermarket. It looked like a gift. I like that.
This tea was one of my favorites of the sampler that I purchased from Artful Tea. A well-rounded taste. Sweet but not overly sweet, smooth, not too astringent, and it’s rich and flavorful and satisfying. It would be a good breakfast tea.
Smooth, malty, caramel-y, notes of earth and wood. Really nice.
