4835 Tasting Notes
Yesterday, I received a lovely gift package as part of a swap and a tin of this was part of the gift. I was very happy to receive it, it is one that I haven’t yet tried but have wanted to.
The black tea base is pleasant – robust and solid. Strong enough to serve as the first cup of the day – which this happens to be for me. I love the cranberry and orange pairing. It gives it a sweet yet tart/tangy kind of taste that is very appealing, and yet the flavor does not overwhelm the black tea. A nice balance.
This has a pleasant herbal scent, I can smell the mint, but it is well balanced with the other herbs in the blend.
It is surprisingly good. I say “surprisingly good” because I don’t usually like teas that are supposed to make me feel better. But this is quite palatable. The peppermint is well pronounced without it being overwhelming or even what I would consider strong because the other flavors soften the peppermint’s strength.
This is a feel good tea I can enjoy!
Yum! I love the way the rose and cherry flavor come together in this tea. The rooibos doesn’t have a strong woody taste which is a big bonus in my book.
The rose flavor is not incredibly strong, but it does offer a nice contrast to the sweetness of the cherry.
A very pleasant tisane.
This past week, I received a newsletter from Two Leaves and a Bud, naming this tea as the “Steep of the Month” – so in honor of that, I decided I would brew myself a cup.
I really like this tea. It has a beautiful nutty and vegetative flavor to it. Buttery. Delicious!
