I have to admit that I am a bigger fan of the old version of this blend. This version is more minty/smokey where the old version had the mint/lemongrass/tea flavor that I liked so much. This version is also much heavier which wasn’t what I was looking for in this tea.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Hmm…you sure you have the new version? There’s no lapsang in the new one and the spearmint was halved.

I know it’s the new version. Maybe I contaminated it by keeping the bag of Foxfire Chai next to it?

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Hmm…don’t think so, as the bags are air/smell proof. That’s really interesting though. The old version was 20% lapsang by weight and the rest was a keemun that I discontinued because it was too heavy for the blend. Hmm…who knows?!

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
