The last of my advent teas (minus some herbals). Thank you very much, Michelle. his has been an awesome tea journey! The aroma coming from the steeping leaves is very nice. Full of earthy flavors; musty earth, compost, wet leaves, summer veggies. WOW. That flavor. Was not expecting that. Begins very earthy but then swirls with orange sweet potato and white sweet potato notes. (On a side note have you ever had purple sweet potato? Either Stokes or Okinawan. Regular sweet potatoes are good but purple is fantastic). The appearance of the leaves also makes for a very pleasant tea session. Beautiful curly leaves of varying light brown shades. This tea becomes astringent quite quickly.

I have had (and enjoyed!) Okinawan sweet potatoes. I live two hours from Boise, Idaho, and there is a local chain there called “Boise Fry Company” where you pretty much just order fries as a meal (you can get a small “side burger” if you wish). They have several different varieties of potatoes, including the purple Okinawan, and a large bar of different types of fry sauce (including the Idaho/Utah original fry sauce, of course).

^ this sounds very cool. I’d love to go there and get a sampler potato fry plate if they had such a thing. Otherwise, I’d have to come back to try all their potatoes.

Also, I was under the impression that sweet potatoes and yams were the same thing. Apparently, they are not.

Glad you liked the tea, I had fun putting it together :)

Ah, I love purple potatoes but didn’t know about purple SWEET potatoes.
Mastress Alita – that place sounds amazing, as fries have always been one of my favorite foods. And “side burger”. har har

Tea Profile:
Allergies: Almonds and Dairy.
Don’t like: Sugar, artificial flavoring.

Preferably pure tea. But I think blending is its own art form and when done well you can find some amazing flavors.

I will drink any type and love to taste whatever I can get my hands on but if I had to choose it would go in this order Green, Black, Oolong, White, Dark, and Yellow. (Purple is not a type of tea it is a cultivar known as TRFK 306/1 )
