Received a very generous sample of this from The TeaGuy — Thanks!!!
In the bag: Large unbroken leaves and chunks of what look like slivers of maple candy you get at World Market at Christmastime.
Smells like: One of those tobacco stores in a mall in the 80’s. But in a good way.
Looks: leaves unfurled and plumped, liquid is that “proper black tea” rust color.
Smells like: Ihop, but on a Saturday mid-morning good way, not the sad 4am thursday way.
Plain: Barely sweet, slightly astringent.
With sugar: Sweet, astringent.
With milk: OMG Waffles! Dripping in butter and syrup like the universe intended.
Brewed in a ceramic mug with a badly photoshopped on purpose picture of an orange & white kitten in a straw hat – using an in-mug tea infuser from BB&B.
Flavors: Butter, Maple, Maple Syrup, Pancake Syrup, Sugar, Tannic
