This is such a strong smelling tea! Opening the bag I got a huge whiff of sweetness! It smells like strawberries and chocolate with cream… just like the teas used! It’s so sweet-smelling I feel like I’m getting a toothache just from smelling it. I can see how this is an effie tea.

The tea smells just as sweet as it did in the bag. It’s a very overpowering smell, and I hope the tea is more mellow. It’s a light color, amber-ish. Any lighter and it would look pink and would definitely remind me of effie!

The taste is sweet, but not as overwhelming as its smell. I taste the cream and the almonds, and the hint of rose. This tea needs no sweetener, it’s already sweet enough. It’s not a taste i’m used to, since for the past 4 months I’ve been drinking pure oolongs and white teas… but the cream and chocolate flavors gives it body. I like this, but I’m wondering if maybe I understeeped it… or put too much water in for the amount I used. It feels like it’s missing something, but I’m not sure what.

Bio

Daily tea drinker.

Whether it’s hot or cold outside, there is a cup of tea in my hands. I love all teas, but white and oolong are my favorites. I tend to find one tea and drink it every day until I run out (or get sick of it).

There’s not much variety in what I drink, so tasting notes are few and far inbetween. I try to log every tea I drink at least once… and if I spend to much time perusing the many teas all you lovely people drink I would surely go broke trying to drink them all.
