This was one of the free samples I chose from Bird Pick! It’s a beautiful tied wreath of dark brown leaves, about an inch and a half in diameter. Dry scent is sweet bread and honey with some raisin and wood notes. I used one piece in my 8 ounce cup, and as it steeped it unfurled a bit until it looked something like a sea urchin in my cup.
The steeped tea has a nice bread aroma with a lot of honey. Hm, this is an interesting one! There is a definite dark wheat bread flavor here. However, the beginning of the sip is quite woody and slightly… loamy? I don’t know. Midway through, it shifts to pure bread and honey tea, and this is the aftertaste as well. If this were bread and honey tea all the way through, I would be a very happy girl. The rougher flavor at the beginning is not my favorite.
