My second at-work tea bag experiment of the day. This one also came as a sample with a Kusmi order.
In the bag, the tea smells pretty yummy. I can smell the caramel, but it isn’t overwhelming, and there is also a fruit smell, so that the main impression is of caramel apple, or caramel dipped berries.
The tea smells delightful. I can smell the vanilla as well as the caramel as well as the fruit.
The taste is smooth, and really interesting. There’s a lot going on, but it manages not to be confusingly busy. The flavors blend nicely. In fact, it’s not so easy to pick out individual flavors once you’ve progressed to the tasting point. Though if I concentrate, I get all the same things I smelled. I got vanilla, then caramel, then fruit. The aftertaste is a mild, sweet tea with berries.
I have a tin of this in loose leaf form, and I expect it can only taste better. Something to look forward to!
