My black tea sampler from samovar came in today! For the price I paid (which was a lot—even with the steepster select) i secretly hoped it would be more than just 1 time samplers. But oh well~
this tea smells faintly like vanilla, but more on the weird side. I’m not sure whether or not to add milk and sugar….but after just taking a tiny sip I guess I’m going to. Yeah, the flavor is definitely better.
I can see why they say it “appeals to coffee drinkers”. Somehow it has similar tastes overall to coffee, but I can’t really pick out any specific flavors in it. I’m tasting some vanilla for sure but it’s not the most prominent flavor. Hmm, flavor profile says it has black pepper, that would make sense for this slightly weird flavor i’m tasting. I think the pepper is leaving a slightly weird after taste as well, but overall it’s a good tea. Really can’t say more considering I’m not that into black teas.
