I respect you guys, so I’m not going to beat around the bush. This tea is a solid two thumbs up. Respectful thumbs, angled straight up at the sky. (Which, today, is actually very sunny and pleasant. Wishing you the same.)
You get apple. You get cinnamon. You get maple. You get a little bit of a malt note that I might be imagining. But I’ve now put the idea of malt in your head. You’ll therefore taste it when you try this. There’s a deep black tea note that hangs out in the background, letting the sweet kids romp around on the main stage.
It’s definitely a “romp” kind of tea. This is not your Serious Business Tea at A Somber Board Meeting tea.
Um, what kind of tea would that even be? Probably a smoky lapsang. Or maybe some very straightforward, mind-stirring green. If it’s a fancy bank or tobacco company, the black. If it’s a hip tech company, definitely the green.
Regardless, this is Bring Along In A Travel Container While You Babysit Some Kids At A Park In The Fall tea. Or maybe you have your own kids. But I have to borrow some occasionally. You’d think that someone wonky and soft like me would be a terrible babysitter, but I can attain a good balance of fun and firm.
Especially if I have caffeine.
Praise be black teas and their energy-inducing properties. The black tea in this will give you the nudge needed to be a better business person, mom, babysitter, or basically anything you’d like to be on this lovely day.
Here’s the scoop!
