A classic case of me being drawn in to trying a tea because of the name. I mean…who wouldn’t want to try Bigfoot Tea? I introduce to you…Bigfoot Tea from Wendigo Tea Co.
Why was I so excited to try Bigfoot Tea from Wendigo Tea Co? Well, because I live in one of the supposed ‘hot spots’ in the US for Bigfoot Sightings! It’s true! A local winery even named a wine after Bigfoot. So now I can say I have tried at least 1 tea and 1 wine that were inspired by the mythological simian, ape, or hominid-like creature that is said to inhabit forests.
If you reside in a different country or haven’t heard of this creature it’s American folklore. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. It’s also known as Sasquatch. The term Sasquatch is an Anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq’ets. Thank you Wiki!
As for this tea…Bigfoot Tea from Wendigo Tea Co. is flippin’ fantastic! After reading the base for this tea was an Imperial Grade Golden Monkey from a tea workshop in Fuan county in the Fujiang province of China I couldn’t wait to try it. I’m partial to black teas, after all.
Bigfoot Tea from Wendigo Tea Co. gets its name from the leaves which look like long, brown curly monkey hair. The leaves are so flavorful that you can repeatedly steep them up to 6 times according to the companies website! The flavor is fairly bold, woodsy-sweet, brisk, and YUMMY!
I’ve heard from Bigfoot enthusiasts that the beast doesn’t smell very nice but this tea does! Perhaps Wendigo knows something we don’t here in Bigfoot Country! Regardless – I have to say I am a fan of this tea! A nice, sturdy black cuppa!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Wendigo Tea
Hey I’m Bigfoot! I am a pure black tea whose leaves are naturally sweet.I am a shy yet powerful beast, with a musk full of fruits, nuts, and trees. What you imagine when someone says “black tea” is a pale imitation of my beastly quality.
Want to get personal with me? I am an Imperial Grade Golden Monkey from a tea workshop in Fuan county in the Fujiang province of China. I get my name from my leaves, which look like long brown curly monkey hair and are so powerful that you can repeatedly steep them up to 6 times for pot after pot of aromatic bold tea to share with family and friends. Or just keep me all to yourself.
Don’t bother tasting any other Sasquatch. You have found Bigfoot!
