drank 7th Heaven by Tealux
7 tasting notes

First of all, thank you JustJames for this gem!
I show up at my workplace, and there’s a big bag of sample teas! What a way to make a girls night!
I’m looking through everything for something that’s herbal (caffeine has always wreaked havoc on my nights, since I was a kid), this one catches my eye. The leafs are flat and skinny, and dusty looking (the lapacho I’m guessing). Sort of a rusty colour. I feel like I’m smelling an orange vanilla sort of aroma….
Steep it, let it sit, and sip. Oranges slide subtlety over the tongue, followed by (and I have no idea why) something vanilla-y. There’s also something almost spicy, but not spicy. It has a very unique flavour that one tastes with the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat. It’s there for a fleeting moment on the tongue, then the orange, then you feel it’s spice at the back of the throat. Then the refreshing but subtle aftertaste of oranges.
Overall a lovely experience. I’ll be drinking this by the pot.

Profile

Bio

I’m a recent addition to the tea drinking community, having only ever had Tetley black in my childhood (a staple for many and the entrance of many into the tea world). I’ve only in the last year really discovered the sensory experience that is tea consumption. It’s something I hope I never grow tired of.

Other than my passion for tea drinking, I’m a fan of music, hand making bracelets (which I sell on Etsy), watching films, reading, German(y), and chilling with my kitty cat, just to name a few.
