After reading the description of this tea, I could not wait to try it.

When I first smelled the tea, it smelled delicious. It smelled like a champagne mimosa with strawberries. Once the tea was brewed, the liqour smelled quite artificial. The strawberry no longer smelled like real strawberry.

Overall the taste is not disappointing, but I wish it tasted less artificial. I found the rose flavour overtook most of the flavour in the tea. It almost had the flavour of champagne but not quite, which was perplexing to my taste buds – I couldn’t quite place the taste.

I did need to add some rock sugar to sweeten it up a bit.

I will finish what I have but will most likely not purchase again.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
