This is an interesting blend. It’s very pretty and colourful dry and steeps a dark red/pink colour. The smell is nice, but there is something I’m not fond of in there – not sure what it is. The taste is much less overwhelming than the smell. I was expecting something akin to Mamma Mia (agh) with such a strong smell. But it seems almost watered down. Not offensive, not awesome. Another one to cross off the list.

Overall a nice blend. I’l finish my 10 g sample, but won’t purchase again.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.
