Part of the David’s Tea fall collection.

It smells like Jolly Ranchers in the bag so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect…

My first sip – hmm. this is an oddly disconcerting mix of flavors. I was hoping there would be more apple and I really feel like the nut and the rose are clashing with each other and I’m picking up on a slight bitterness too. I normally like rose teas but this is going in the solid “meh” category – I’m not disappointed that I only got 1 oz.

Preparation

I smelled hard candy with this too, and while sipping found it to be sickeningly sweet. It seems you enjoyed it more than I did. The flavors really don’t blend well together do they?

Not so much.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
