This is an interesting tea, full of spices and vegetables and something bright trying to break through. A hint of licorice here, a wisp of mint there and the whole time it is savory and green. It’s like a tasty veggie side dish. I am not sure how I feel…
Flowers! It’s like perfume sorta with that slight dryness and the spice you’d find in like lavender or dandelions. I wish I could describe this better…I think I will add the other teabag to my tea twins package I am working on and hopefully she will be better at explaining this tea.
So I used one teabag for me and one for my friend. There was a fair amount of vanilla pods in the teabag so I was excited but sipping on this tea I am finding it very monotone. There is a light floral vanilla and that’s it. I feel like the base could contribute more to round out the flavor but it’s quite weak for a black base. I didn’t realize this was a black oolong blend so maybe that is playing a role.
This tea has the most adorable packaging. In fact, I may have purchased this for the packaging. Which I guess is not the best reason to purchase a tea since at the end of the day you don’t drink the packaging. Alas, the tea is just not as exciting. Actually it is very bland. No berry flavor to be found and mostly there is the slightest hint of peas from the base and even that isn’t particularly present.
I had this once before but it cooled long before I got to try it and I just assumed that was why it was flavorless. Turns out its just the tea :(.
