Sweet potato pie! How cute! :) The dry leaves do smell strongly of its ingredients – sweet potato and butter (the latter is so strong that it smells a bit like cheese!). It’s an extraordinarily creamy aroma, so rich that I think I can get fat just by inhaling it! When brewed the aroma softens and becomes less overwhelming. Taste-wise it is slightly sweet, with a savoury, buttery undercurrent. I can really taste the sweet potato – though not the flavour of real sweet potato but more like that of sweet potato sundae. Overall I find this tea special and likeable. It’s going to be a perfect winter drink with a bit of warm milk. Too bad this is only a sample…

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

Btw, check out my tea-themed board on Pinterest, if you like tea and pretty things!
