Recently stumbled upon this company and was so fascinated by the uniqueness of their blends, both in visual and composition, that I just had to order! The shipping turn around was really fast, but word to the wise (and of course not the company’s fault) but ordering here to Montreal I got REALLY dinged on import fees – over $100 for my $200 order, which I think is the most I’ve ever been charged…

That said, I’ve been really impressed with the few teas from my order I’ve tried so far! This is definitely one of the most visually stunning and unique looking teas I’ve seen in quite a while – the long strips of candied yuzu are really something else and it’s insanely hard to not pull them out of the blend to snack on. Okay, full disclosure, I may have done this to one of them – it was so tasty.

Steeped, this is a pretty peppery tasting chai – but that’s not surprising. In addition to the spice mix itself, I find yuzu is already sort of naturally peppery. In fact, that’s part of why I think the concept for this tea is so brilliant in the first place – it’s a fun juxtaposition of flavour that’s grounded in some subtle shared flavour notes. The taste is pleasantly warming with clear notes of ginger and clove, with the sweetness of the fennel without having a licorice-y taste. The yuzu is subtle and presents as a nice pithy citrus undertone. Very nuanced, complex and tasty!

Wow! Is this an American company? You can probably get the charges refunded if you send the appropriate paperwork to the government, and for that amount it might be worth it. The post office should have the right customs forms. I did this for a Tillerman order I placed last year and it worked, though it took a while. I also got charged by DHL recently for tea I bought from Taiwan. COVID seems to have made this worse, as with a lot of other things.

100 $ for import fees? That’s crazy! And probably way too much, in my opinion.
