Followup from the original mishap regarding this tea. Robert was so incredibly generous and resent me two packets of this so I could see if I still get the heavy chemical scent and taste from it, both in the regular and royal base. Both are also the same level of flavouring that I had originally ordered.
The good news is it isn’t as heavy on the chemicals as the original one I received, like maybe 20% less chemical, so maybe it’s just me. But since they’re better, I’m definitely going to be drinking them up!
By the way, this is my first time trying the royal grade and I can’t get over the difference! It’s so much silkier and the colour is even more vibrant. I think paying the extra $4 would be worth it.
While I really appreciate Red Leaf’s effort of trying to create a Macadamia blend, this is just not for me (not re-purchasable in my opinion). But hey, it’s no loss. The library of flavours is insane. Just keep exploring and one will find more gems out there (such as French Vanilla and Caramel).
