From Whispering Pines Tea Company

Quick Sips: Powerful black tea with strong fruity notes, very thick mouthfeel, and great energy to it! Super unique small batch black tea — a must try!

This is a very small batch black tea made from leaves normally used to make Phoenix Mountain oolong (such as Mi Lan Xiang). While you can definitely find the vibrancy that those oolongs are known for here, there’s some really special qualities that come through on this black tea!

The dry leaf smells intensely fruity and strong. Wet leaf hints at roasted sweet potato with dark brown sugar, malt and cranberry pie!

The flavor is really hard to explain…it’s very thick and rich, with sweetness and some spice. The middle of the sip portrays some fruits, such as apricot, stonefruits, and papaya. The finish is truly unexplainable…a warm and energizing feel to it.

The cha qi of this tea is pretty strong as well…I don’t recommend drinking this on an empty stomach, but I very much recommend it overall! :-)

What a beautiful tea this is. It blends many fruity and floral notes into a deliciously sweet and spicy profile. It is very good even when it cools down. Dry leaf smells of tobacco (without any smoky notes) and to a lesser extent tomatoes and blueberries. In a preheated gaiwan, there’s an interesting mix of chestnut and passion fruit. I find it very hard to identify the wet leaf aroma, but it is very flowery for sure with stone fruit notes mixed in.

The taste profile is super fragrant, sweet and tart. I got flavours such as star anise, fenugreek, apples, nectarine pits, dill, and citrus zest. In the late steeps, there are some herbaceous and malty notes as well. Aftertaste is dominated by a persisting sweetness, but it is not boring. New flavours like licorice, wood, curry leaves, and carrot emerge.

On top of the complexity, the tea also has a strong, calming cha qi and a bubbly, viscous mouthfeel. Drinking it I get a mouth-watering effect as well as a strong drying sensation on the sides of the mouth.
