I’m a sucker for flavoured blacks, and I’ve never had one I didn’t like, but this one is beyond DELISH!
It’s definitely a dessert tea. It’s not lying about the rose either. You can really taste it but it doesn’t overpower the other flavours. It’s slightly nutty, but not so nutty that is the main flavour. All of the flavours balance out very evenly, which is lovely. (That’s kind of my biggest peeve with flavoured teas, is when one flavour is kinda sticking out too much to enjoy the others).
If you want something that’s really black tea-y then I wouldn’t suggest it. It’s really floating around in there with all the other stuff so more difficult to pick up on.
It is full bodied, very tasty hot, and if you accidently let it sit for a bit and it cools off too much it is not at all bitter.
Probably my new favourite dessert tea (but nothing will surpass a perfect creamy earl gray).
