Recent Tasting Notes


Very rarely would I rate any tea with the “yuck” emoticon. However, this one I just must. I cannot taste the tea, as it is overwhelmed by a horrid artificial flavor, and it certainly isn’t of walnuts! To me this tastes exactly like eating cheap store bought white cake icing from the can. I’ve tried blending it with other teas, and each time the flavor overwhelms the cup. I seriously would not have the good conscience to trade this tea with anyone!

This tea is as beautiful to look at as it is to sniff and drink. Hand blended with whole rose petals, lavendar flowers and Earl Grey tea, this tea is a must for floral tea lovers. The floral flavor is nice and strong (the way I like floral teas) and harmonizes well with the bergamot of the Earl Grey. Because of the high flower petal size and bud content, I usually brew 2 heaping teaspoons full at a time for each 8 oz of water. Lovely to smell and taste!
