A generous share from Dustin, thank you! I’m mainly getting tart cranberry and herbaceous rosemary against the mildly astringent black base.

Thank you Dustin for sending this across the bay! This might be my favorite of the three Laponic teas I’ve tried.

Cooked cranberry aroma that’s mellow and deep with a tangy high tone, a bit of rosemary. The tea is full-bodied, brothy and lightly brisk. The heft of the flavor is from the black teas, contributing oak wood and a touch of earth. Equal measures cranberry and rosemary are layered seamlessly throughout. Using cranberry flavor I can understand but also rosemary flavor instead of the leaf? Maybe the leaf is naturally too overpowering to create the desired effect. There is also another layer to the tea that takes me a moment to notice, an airy quality maybe contributed by the oak moss flavoring, maybe also by the elderflowers and dried poppy petals. The airiness carries through into the aftertaste with subtle minerals and a bit of cool rosemary, leaving a gentle feeling of being refreshed.

I’ve really enjoyed sampling the Laponic white, green and black teas. They’re very focused on the essence of northern environments — very natural woodsy aromas and tastes.

This tea has been hiding in the back of my cupboard for about a year now. So strange and savory! I sometimes get the craving for the Laponic December green, which is more juniper based, but I feel like I get some of that in here too, but it’s not listed in the ingredients. Maybe it’s the cranberry rosemary combo. Either way, delightfully strange. Makes me wish I had grabbed a bag of their white laponic to try.

ashmanra donated a tin of the white to me. I have plenty to share if you’d like to try!


Oooooo, yes I’d love that! Want to try some of the black and green?

I have not been buying much new tea, and sticking to finishing a lot of my stash. But Thé o Dor is a favorite brand I can´t order easily (they sell online but the shipping prices are very of-fputting!) but found a store which had some tins and could not resist indulging in this Christmas tea.

It´s a very unusual christmas tea, rosemary, oak moss and cranberry on a very nice chinese black tea base. It´s wonderfully refreshing, fresh, clear, pure compared to how sweet and spicy most christmas teas are. Luckily , I love it and will enjoy it the rest of the year as well!

This sounds so interesting! I can’t even imagine what oak moss might taste like.


If it were not on item description I would never have expected it. Maybe a certain woody-ness, a green note. I have tried perfumes in the past with oak moss notes, I think it is supposed to be in the background.

The rosemary is very dominant here in a very interesting way – maybe the moss and berries balance it so it tastes very pure, very wild, rather than flowery. I can’t imagine Lapland smelling like this in reality but it tastes like something of a pure winter forest without being pine-y. I like pine scents very much but a pine tea might not be nearly as drinkable as this.

This was a really exciting interesting idea for a tea, I loved that it works out!


It sounds wonderful. I’m wishlisting this one!
