My first Whispering Pines tea! I chose this in part because I wanted to try the roasted cedar and vanilla bean (and several of the blends with those ingredients were out of stock when I placed my order). This is a really interesting and unique tea. When I first smelled it dry, I couldn’t place any of the flavours, it was just this mysterious earthy boozy deliciousness. Going back after reading the ingredients, I can smell the vanilla and cedar. I’m not sure what saffron smells like, so I can’t tell if it’s there. :)

Brewed, the black tea base takes centre stage, with the various other ingredients adding richness and complexity. It totally does remind me of being out on canoe camping trips: waking up in the morning and stepping out of my tent to breathe the fresh morning air and gaze out over the water.

If tea had a gender, I would call this a manly tea. The dry tea smells woody, and I could pick out some hints of grape. Not sure where that came from. There's a warm vanilla scent, and an unidentified note that I believe is the saffron.

The brewed tea smells warm, and reminds me of a cozy night spent reading in a comfy chair by the fireplace. I am happy to drink it in the Spring, but I will definitely be buying more of this in Autumn because it just seems like it would fit with cooler weather!

This tea is expensive, but I have to say it's worth it. I mean, real vanilla beans and real saffron are expensive, but I think you get what you pay for here.

I had a rough day, and this tea is giving me a warm, fuzzy feeling. I think some of that is also due to the fact that I am drinking it out of the most awesome Dr. Who mug ever made, but the tea is definitely contributing to the happy.
