Waffles require a strong tea. A Dragonwell wasn’t going to cut it, I didn’t want to miss the subtle nuances. And being out of my Sri Lankan and India teas I figured I better look for something else. This was hiding by a package of Hawai’ian herbal I still need to open… Ah, black tea. So I opened it and the aroma hit me. Holy fruity Moses. Mango, pear, slight guava, apple banana (I’ve only had them in Hawai’i but they’re delicious). This will be interesting I thought. But what? Caffeine free the website says. OH! A cousin. So produced like a black tea but actually not a black tea. Fascinating. The first steep was intensely fruity. Worked well with my waffle with the best syrup ever from Faxon Farms. I plug them all the time because I haven’t found any syrup better than theirs. Second steep the fruity subsided and was replaced with woody tones. Light woods and sweet tones. Bits of sugar. For those who are looking for a Chinese black tea alternative, this would be a good fit, however, I do not think it would work for those who like it brisk.

If you love to discover new tea companies please check out my blog www.teatiff.com

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 )
