It’s a cold rainy day and I’m working from home, so Book of Tea samples it is!

Wow, I really like this. The combination of the smokiness of the lapsang and the earthiness of the puerh make it almost savory? It has a very earthy-mineral aftertaste. I’m not sure how I feel about this; it’s not the best black tea I’ve ever had, but it’s such a good cold day tea and I’m not sure I’ve ever enjoyed something quite this earthy before—the closest thing I’ve had to this was Yerba Matte Late, and that kind of tasted like coffee and dirt. This is much better. Glad I tried it.

MJ is 24, plays with arts and crafts and words and meanings, and prefers a side of tea with her lovely rainy days.

I’m a big fan of Japanese greens and of flavored black teas. I will pretty much automatically love anything with popcorn in it, despite not liking actual popcorn, and I’m not a huge fan of chai or jasmine.

I’m really fond of seasonal teas, so I’m likely to give something a try if it’s specifically for spring or fall or what have you.

Shout-out to Zen Tea for keeping me sane and being delicious.
