Dry Leaf Aroma: This smells like a malted campfire.

Ehrmagerd! OM NOM NOM.

This tea is amazeballs. I made it like this: 1 tsp, 8 oz, 208 degrees, 3.5 minutes. I used my brew in mug strainer. I sampled at 1 and 2 minutes, but it wasn’t strong enough. 3.5 minutes is perfect.

I am going to try a second steep, but I’m already sold. This is gorgeous. It smells and ...

Oh my. This is a good one! The dry tea leaves smell like malty cookies with a hint of jasmine. Malty Jasmine cookies! I want to bake some to go with this tea.

The brewed tea smells less floral and more sweetly malty. And the flavor... it's very sweet on its own, without any additives. I love that. It tastes m...

The dry aroma on this tea is really interesting. It smells malty, and there's a general roasty aroma. It smells like something I have smelled before, but I cannot place the aroma.

It's a little pricey,...

I really wish I tasted some of that pepper from the description.

This was brewed using boiling water for 6 min. The tea smells great before and after steeping, but it has a sharp taste that I don't appreciate.

I try to drink tea without sugar or milk, but it may be needed here. Toward the end of the cup, I star...
