Small tin from the Russian sampler. Drinking plain, no cream, no sugar. In my Lock & Lock Double Wall Tea Bottle, which means the leaves stay in it.
On smelling the unbrewed tea, I was a little doubtful. It smells like candy from an old lady’s purse, or something. But it seemed like there was potential there.
On brewing, that scent goes away, and I’m left with an Earl Greyish taste that doesn’t jump up and slap you in the face. Good for a morning where I want a gradual return to awareness, instead of something to wake me up right now.
