My first review!
This is a very fluffy and light tea, so I used I bit more than I usually would for most teas. While steeping, this has a pleasant floral scent – predominantly chamomile, though I can detect a little bit of rose if I look for it. It’s definitely a calming scent.
I’m letting this steep awhile, partially because I’ve burned my tongue too many times by being a little too eager to drink my tea. I’ve probably oversteeped my teas many times, but I’ve never had a huge problem with the flavor.
There is a very mild sweetness to this, like a drop of honey among the (not-too) bitter flowers. The chamomile is the predominant note here, blending with the other florals.
This is definitely a very soothing tea. The scent (combined wiih the warmth) just relaxes me, as it’s meant to.
Flavors: Floral, Honey
This is a tea that I picked up on my recent visit to the steeping room. Lately, I’ve found that I’ve mostly been sticking to flavored black teas, so I’m trying to get myself to branch out a little bit more. I really love jasmine green teas, but for some reason I never seem to go for them. I happened to pick this one up to smell, and it was AMAZING. I knew I had to get it. I tried it for the first time yesterday and ended up having about three cups of it.
The jasmine is the main flavor here, with the blueberry adding a nice sweetness and some dimension to the flavor. One thing that tends to make me shy away from green teas, is that I tend to oversteep them and make them bitter. This one, however, seemed very resistant to oversteeping, which is a nice added bonus for me!
A very subtle peach note. The black tea is definitely the star of this show – which is the way it should be when it comes to tea, don’t you think?
The black tea is brisk and a bit more astringent than I would like it to be. It’s a pleasant black tea with peach flavors but it’s not the best peach flavored black tea I’ve encountered. It’s just alright.
