I was really excited about this tea because the recipe sounded totally delicious. As a dessert and oolong lover, I was dying to try it – to the extent that I shamelessly asked my friend in Canada to buy that for me as a b-day gift! :P Thanks Chris!!!
Sadly, this tea is a HUGE disappointment. I hate to say this, but it is just awful. Before I tried it (but after Chris had already bought it), I was shocked by the massive reviews by displeased Steepsterites :0 I thought, it couldn’t be that bad, could it? Yet it IS really bad, and much worse than I have expected! Like many others, I am put off by the strong, unnatural “carrot cake” aroma. At first the smell wasn’t that strong so I could drink the tea… which tasted mainly of coconut and perhaps a bit of carrot. It did reminded me of carrot cake but definitely not a very tasty one because it lacked creaminess. Now the tea has cooled, and the synthetic carrot cake smell has become sickening enough to pollute the air in my room. It gives me a headache and makes the whole room stink! God, what should I do with the rest of the 100g tin?? X_X
