WHY WE LOVE THIS TEA...
Just a smell of this blend and you can imagine you're sitting in a pine forrest.
Okay, I was skeptical about this tea. The idea of pine in a black tea, I just wasn't sure if it would be "too much." But -like everything from Revival- you have to have faith because it's actually incredibly balanced and wonderful! I usually stick standard teas like Earl Grey, Chai, and the like, but I really wanted to try something unique and went for it and got this tea. My house is surrounded by Ponderosa pines and I love nothing more than savoring this excellent black tea with notes of pine and a hint of smokiness while out on my deck surrounded by my trees. It really is a Northwest breakfast. The pine is not overpowering or kitchy at all, but yet it's still present. If you're on the fence, give this a go because it's a great experience!
