So super excited. Came home from a week long vacation, to this tea waiting for me. I had an awesome vacation but I was trying to play “tourist” and some family members that were with us thought everything was too expensive. Sigh. Its been a long week.
This is actually March’s handmade tea, but the shipping took a bit longer to get to me. So far I am super impressed. It came well packaged, a tin with a unique label. And there was also small tins of each individual ingredient so you can smell and taste each ingredient individual and together. And the best part, there was a card, and the envelope had a wax seal on it. Yup! Awesome.
So the tea. It smells like a basic breakdast tea with very faint sweet citrus smell. I would say there is a “kick to it”, which would be the peppercorns.
The tea is a strong breakfast with mild citrus flavour, there is definitely a spice/peppery-ness to it. But it is not a strong spice. It is also slightly sweet.
As it cools, it tastes creamy.
I am not normally a breakfast tea drinker, what I mean by that is, I don’t usually drink breakfast blends, I drink Earl Grey in the morning.
Looking forward to many more months of handmade tea.
