10 Tasting Notes
Bought this at both Wicked Fair and the Steampunk’s World Fair, and it’s a tea I’m always sure to stock up on. It’s sweet, malty, with a strong almond, cardamom and vanilla flavor with mild notes of rose. Takes sugar well, but I find it a little too weak for milk.
I think my problem with this tea, is that I was hoping to add milk, to find that it would, for some reason, curdle. I suspect there’s something too acidic in this tea, maybe rose hips, that caused the milk to curdle. Other than that it’s a decent tea. Good with sugar or honey, but again, don’t add milk. It’s fairly sour, and not overly floral, which I wasn’t expecting.
This is a fine afternoon tea, though not strong enough for me personally. This tea has a fairly strong bergamot flavor, then changes to floral. This tea takes sugar well, but might be a bit too weak for milk. This is a delicate tea, so if you like more delicate blacks, this is a good one to try.
