This blend was included in a box of Friday Teas that my daughter gave me for Yule. When I opened the bag a got a strong whiff of sage. I wasn't worried - I often drink sage tea for stomach complaints. My husband was afraid that would be all we could taste. But it wasn't.
You could actually smell a medieval forest at the verge of winter. It was rich and earthy and had just enough sage to bring pine trees and herbaceous undergrowth to mind.
Every cup of this will be an experience to be enjoyed rather than a vehicle for caffeine intake.
I cannot wait to try to the rest of my beautiful teas.
