drank Carnival by Sanctuary T
60 tasting notes

Hello Steepsterites.

Look at your tea, now back to mine, now back at your tea, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn’t mine, but if you stopped purchasing tea bags and switched to Sanctuary T’s Carnival blend, it could smell and taste like mine.

Sorry for that. I HAD to do it. I recently purchased a discounted sampler tea set from Sanctuary T via their July quizzes, and this was the first tea that I decided to brew. Now, let me tell you: The aroma is to DIE for. It’s buttery, caramel, and smooth with a hint of pepper. It’s a medium body black tea that is so perfectly blended, I completely forgot I was drinking anything since it goes down divinely smooth.

Imagine eating the most wonderful slightly salted popcorn without your fingers getting all greasy. Now imagine you can drink that happiness. That is this tea.

My only gripe is that the tea doesn’t do too well on consecutive brews. It smells and tastes great but it’s moderately weaker. Sadies. Wonderful tea nonetheless.

Nice one! and just think of how much tea Isaiah Mustafa could sell if he tried… I wish he would! No matter how clever the ads are, I’m never going to buy Old Spice for my husband, because I don’t want him to smell like my father and/or grandfather!

haha! the old spice ad is hilarious! we are so glad that you love our tea… sorry that it is on the weaker side, have you tried steeping it a bit longer?
