So. This is how it feels to have over 100 teas in your cupboard.
I went from 86 to 116. I don’t know if I should be proud of myself or hang my head in shame? Well… I did add my David’s order even though I haven’t gotten it yet (should arrive sometime at the end of the week) and I do have like 4 things in there that are teaware so I technically don’t have 116 teas hehe :)
Well, I’m excited to smell and try all my teas nontheless!!
I was in the middle of typing the top bit and my kettle just finished boiling water and I was SO CLOSE to pouring the water in, but I am smart and I remembered that there’s white tea in this blend! So. Waiting a couple minutes till I pour the water in.
Dry, this tea smells soooooo good! Definitely reminds me of Santa’s Secret by David’s. You’ve got the nice, fresh peppermint, and the lightness of the snowbud, and it all comes full circle with the robust scent of the cream. I feel like this is going to be a very well-balanced blend :)
Steeping, it smells a bit darker than in the package. I can smell the peppermint, maybe a bit *too much peppermint? But I am getting slightly grassy notes from the snowbud. It’s light amber in colour.
Drinking, oh not too bad! It’s pretty nice :) Think Santa’s Secret, but with more cream. The peppermint is there just slightly, and you definitely taste the cream, The snowbud is nice that it tones down the cream a little bit!
Overall, this is a very nice tea! Four for you Cara McGee, you go Cara McGee.
