Picked up the other new tea to try as well – why not, right?
This one has a bit of an off-putting smell dry – I’m not sure what it is, but I expected the caramel/toffee would come out more when it was steeped.
The steeped flavours were definitely stronger and more pleasant than the dry smell – that odd off-putting smell has disappeared. The hint of salt is faintly there, but I think it mostly rounds out and balances the black tea. The caramel/toffee and smoothness kind of reminds me of a werthers candy – without being so cloyingly sweet!
