477 Tasting Notes
I haven’t had a cuppa in so long, this was a wonderful one to break my tealess streak. Popped into David’s for the new spring line and saw this on the shelf so decided to give it a taste despite the hibiscus. I was well-rewarded!
The green-white blend is a very light and mellow, relaxing base for the sweet fruitiness of the hibiscus, which doesn’t succumb to tartness. There is a kind of peachy flavour to the tea from the hibiscus, and the jasmine sneaks in on an aftertaste, which is the only down note, a bit too perfumed. Still, it’s a beautiful tea, and I only wish it was more affordable!
I always forget how much I love this tea until I have it again. It bills itself as a floral tea, which is strange because I don’t get anything floral off of it. It tastes like apple pie, more than any “apple pie tea” I’ve ever tried. It’s just apple and a touch of cinnamon and sugar. It’s just a true cup of sweet before-bed comfort. Mmmmm.
Will have to get a slice of apple pie tomorrow at IKEA.
Made a nice biiiiig pot of this today to drink while I finished off ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’. Got about four cups in before I realised that this fruity, orangey, sweet, touch of Earl green blend was amazing and yet strangely familiar. It’s like a better version of DT’s Countess of Seville.
Also, om nom nom nom.
