This is another that I got out of the last TTB that I’m just now trying. It’s pretty unremarkable, with charcoal notes being the most prevalent flavor and aroma. Heavy amount of sediment in the cup. Not something I would try again.

Slowly making my way through all of the DT matchas. This is my least favorite of the bunch so far. I don’t get bubblegum really. It’s more of a grape medicine flavor, which I find pretty disagreeable. I made it as an iced latte, but I couldn’t finish it.

Received this in my SipsBy box a few months back, and it is absolutely wonderful. The lapacho is woody and a bit peppery, which balanced the orange peel and the creamy vanilla flavor perfectly. The flavor balance is exquisite. This is absolutely something I’d like to have on hand.

Got this from the last TTB and I’m just now brewing it up. No idea if I brewed it properly, but it smells and tastes very unique. A bit piney, a bit peppery. Overall very herbal and slightly medicinal. Not something I would necessarily drink again.

This doesn’t quite taste like sakura to me. It has a sweet cinnamon flavor to it. It’s also very, very sweet. Not a favorite.

Received this as a sample in a previous Whispering Pines order. I’ve fallen in love with so many WP teas, so I was excited to try something new. Very nice and malty, full of chocolate and baked-good flavors. I did steep at 212F for 4 minutes rather than the recommended 5min and I’m glad I did so. It has begun to develop a mild bitter bite in the back of the throat, and I believe the longer steep time would’ve ruined it. Overall, an incredibly tasty, satisfying cup.

Finished this off. Nice and creamy! I love the combination of mint and marshmallow. I would definitely purchase this one around the holidays again.
