Whispering Pines is going to be the death of me, but at least I'll die a very happy, tea-drunk death.

Method: 1.5 tsp, 8 oz, 203 degrees, 3 minutes, French Press

Dry Leaf and Brewing Aroma: light malts and honey

Flavor: Why, WP, WHY?!?!? Every time I think I've found my favorite tea, I end up with another beauty. And then I have to go order some. This was a sample from a friend and I was dying to try it after her glowing review.

This tea is just lovely. Really wonderful. It has a very mild, smooth feel. It's naturally sweet, and very noticeably so. It has a light malt flavor, but then there are these juicy fruits on top of that! I'm really amazed at how good this is. This is going on my list of teas that I want to drink every day.
