Thank you Roswell Strange for the sample! I brewed it up as soon as I opened the mail.

The dry leaf smells of herbs, faintly of pine and rosemary.

Brewed, it is not vegetal/grassy. I can taste sap/pine, a sweet hay, it reminds me a lot bay leaf and chamomile. I actually love it!

Flavors: Pine, Sap, Smooth, Sweet

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 2 min, 45 sec

So happy you enjoyed it! I packaged it up at the post office and I got the weirdest look from the lady while doing it.

“Is that, uh, grass?”
“Um, pine needles mostly. . .”
“Right… Well, would you like tracking on that?”

It was hilarious, honestly.

Pine needle teas are a favorite of mine. It’s unfortunate that their not very common.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
