I’ve been saving this little sample for the longest time and I just needed to find the right moment to enjoy it. The end of a school block is never a good time, but I’m now on spring break for a week – so it’s TEA TIME!

The scent of this tea is of rich sweet potato and milk. Oh, this smells so delicious!
Sipping… this is a solid and smooth tea. It’s definitely got that sweet potato flavor with a bit of milkiness in the background. I’m not picking up on any astringency.. it’s just smooth & soft. Quite yummy!

I’m not sure I would buy this again as it’s pretty expensive and there are other teas I like more. Sadly, I’m also not getting the “wow factor” everyone else seems to get with this tea. This was a nice treat, though. Glad to have been able to try this.
