Well, I’ve come down with a sinus infection. Luckily for me it’s not a very bad one—I used to get them chronically. For now, at least, my tastes aren’t even off, so I’m not afraid to try out this sample!

Right out of the bag this smells exactly like pie or cobbler, and it only gets more intense as the water hits it. I was a little worried at first because I don’t tend to like dark oolongs, but it’s actually perfect for the apple and cinnamon flavors. There’s a maltiness to it that really compliments the apple flavor and reminds me of baked ones when they’ve soaked up all those spices and they’re practically falling apart right out of the oven. The cinnamon isn’t overwhelming despite how strong the smell is in the bag, instead becoming a sweet background note that compliments the oolong. This one is a gem! I’d definitely buy it.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Hay, Honey, Malt

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
