I brewed this as my back up tea in case I didn’t like the Cherry Mocha that I just logged (which, I didn’t). Sure, this is a new tea for me so I shouldn’t have been so confident, but I’ve never had a straight black tea that wasn’t at least ok enough. This tea tastes like buttery mushroom “enhanced” Laoshan black. Maybe that is supposed to be sweet potato that I taste, but it’s coming through all wrong. If I had to choose, I’d take Laoshan black over this one.
I think it’s that creamy buttery texture that bothers me most. I was trying to finish my cup, but that texture is making me a bit nauseous.
ETA: how am I really the only one who doesn’t like this? I know I am ‘different’ in many ways from the general populous, but come on… I should be able to find a completely positive reviewed tea and trust that I will like it too. I feel so left out!
