I’m really undecided on this tea so far. I can’t say that the smell from my Winter sampler pouch is very appetizing to me… I get a bit of a rancid nut smell to it?
I grew up drinking black teas (again British parents), and always drank my tea with some milk in it – well as this one was steeping i could very definitely smell the bitter smell of the black tea (to me anyways) so I immediately decided I’d have to try this one with a splash of milk (and went for a small squirt of agave syrup as well).
So I sit down to my first sip… I can taste the hint of banana in it and maybe a bit of the nut (not smelling the rancid nut anymore TG!). But my overall impression so far? Its really not one I see myself wanting to sit down and relax with. I’ll finish my cup ‘o tea and after that? Well, I will be brewing a pot in the next little bit for the kids to try – but I don’t see myself rushing out to buy more of this anytime soon.
