Strong scent right out of the tin, sweet and a hint of spice, just how I like it! While it’s steeping, the scent is reminiscent of some delicious dessert baking in the oven, vanilla with a hint of chocolate. To start I kept this tea plain, and it was delicious as is. Almost reminded me of a “healthy” desert, as it was slightly earthy. Adding in sugar makes it indulgent, and the vanilla really shines through. This tea is probably my favorite so far out of the Sherlock sampler I have. Then again I am only halfway through in trying them all out so who knows what gems await me!

Bio

About Me: newlywed! I studied biomedical sciences and will start up medical school here soon. I love to read, paint, sketch, bake, crochet, knit, and lounge around with my Samoyed (Kenai) and two cats (Callie and Maya.) Fandom nerd and Disney girl.

About me and tea: I think I will always and forever consider myself a tea newbie.

I love learning new things about tea, and continue to branch out and try new tea as much as I can. For the most part my favorites seem to be dessert teas. Sweet tooth anyone? lol. I’d love to hear about other people’s favorites, and where you go for tea! My local choices are pretty limited, i.e. Teavana, so bring on the online shopping ;)

Rating System: I’ll try to stick to it ;P

95-100: Must have! Permanently part of my stash, and will re-stock before I’m out.
85-95: Love it! Wouldn’t hesitate to buy again
75-85: Like it! I’ll enjoy drinking what I have, I might get this again if the craving hits me
55-75: I’ll enjoy drinking what I have, but probably won’t get this again
35-55: Hmm, Not bad, not great. I guess I’ll finish this cup… might try another depending
1-35: eee… I’ll be dumping this cup.
