Another one from my birthday Teavana order. Candied violets, rose, almonds, cinnamon, saffron!?!? All flavors I love, but I wasn’t sure how they would go together. I decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a try!
I taste….Mmmmmm, nutty cookie! … Pow, fruity sweet rose! It’s just like that – pause and all. Completely different experience from one of the subtle French everything-but-the-kitchen-sink teas where all the flavors dance together, but good in its exuberant disjointed American manner :)
Again, I think I could have used just a touch more tea. I think these blended teas are heavy on the stuff, and light on the tea for my tastes. I am going to have to use an extremely heaping perfect teaspoon (yes! I finally got two – one for work and one for home!) when I drink these blends.
