drank Toffee Dream by Zen Tea
826 tasting notes

My Zen Tea order came in like, what, a week ago or something? But I kept putting off trying anything.

Dry, this smells like a pleasantly mild toffee. It has a drier scent to it in the background too.

First steep is pretty good. Like a watery toffee, quite inoffensive. It’s the second steep that’s really meh though, almost like cardboard. I think most of the flavouring was leached out the first time around and now I’m left with that dry tone I can smell in the background in the dry leaf.

It had a good start. I appreciate that it’s not overwhelmingly sweet, no crazy oil scum ring like you can get with some flavoured teas out there. Just wish the base was better, I think. I’m sure that’s the main problem here.

Yessss, cardboard. I recall that flavour + this tea, I’m fairly sure.

Sil

Pretty sure we all unanimously preferred the other one I found

Kittenna

I didn’t ever try that one, but I think you said you preferred it.
