Aside from the legendary Laoshan Black this is probably the best tea I’ve had via a tea swap yet! Thanks MissB! I’ve never had marshmallow leaf before so I have nothing to compare it to, but it was a great cuppa tea! For me it wasn’t so much birthday cake as cake batter, especially given how smooth it was and the slight vegetable oil aftertaste I was left with. It’s interesting just how different this birthday cake tea is from adagios, seeing how thy go after different notes. I think I prefer this one! Certainly a dessert tea, a nice counterpoint to the serious Darjeeling I started the day off with. While not something I would drink every day, it is a nice change of pace tea or a treat when you need one!
