13 Tasting Notes
I was anticipating this tea for Valentine’s Day and I’ll have to say I was not disappointed. I would suspect many will expect a bold chocolate/strawberry taste something you would get from one of those Starbuck’s gourmet cups of coffee that has lots of flavor. Well it doesn’t, it’s subtle but it’s delightful and lingers there for a while. For this reason I love it. I ate Shortbread Fingers with it and boy was the combination deeeeelish. This will definitely be a regular on my tea list
I was excited to try this tea because I love sweet potato pie but I’ll have to say that the hint of the pie was really light. As far as the taste it wasn’t bad but it did have a bitter somewhat funky after taste that I didn’t like but fortunately it doesn’t linger which may be the reason I’ll try it again. That along with the fact I did like it with a piece of chocolate cake that I ate with it. I know there are those who like that bitter bite that some teas offer and if you do I say definitely go for it.
This will always be my backup tea. Whenever I run out of the loose leaf or if I had a bad cup and need to get a better taste I come back to this. This was the first tea I ever truly liked
