If you don’t already know I am a HUGE Dinosaur Enthusiast. It’s the main reason I was drawn to Tea Historic as a company – other than the tea – of course! When I saw Extinction Event from Tea Historic I knew it was going to be EPIC! I mean – with a name with Extinction Event – it HAD to be, right?
This Extinction Event Tea from Tea Historic is made up of hand-rolled golden tippy black Yunnan tea and white Yunnan jasmine pearls. The black tea carries a hint of sweetness with a little spice to provide a bit of a ‘give and take’ with your taste buds. The white tea adds a mild, sweet floral note that turns a bit buttery towards the end sip.
I have found the hotter the better for infusing this ‘bad boy’. The large hand rolled ball of black tea expands nicely the hotter the water is. The Jasmine Pearls unwind with little to no effort. The black bundle of goodness takes 2 infusions to fully release. I LOVE it because that means multiple infusions with little to no sacrifice to the bold taste.
Something I found clever on the company website about this tea was they refer to the Chinese black dragon pearls as “asteroids” and the Jasmine Pearls as ‘little splinter “rocks”. Tea Historic gives Dinosaur fans another ‘educated guess’ as to what happened to the creatures. They say it’s a tastier version of the fatal meteor strike that may have ended this historic tea party.
This tea blend comes in individual packets with the recommended amount of tea already pre-measured, no counting or sorting required, which is good for me because sometimes I don’t feel like thinking in the morning!
The flavor of this tea lives up to it’s name! I have to say I am a pretty hardcore fan of this tea and the creative genius that goes along with it! Well done!
