I was almost certain that I wouldn’t like this. Probably bad approaching teas with certain expectations, but you know how it is… (gah!, yes I have definitely been watching way too many old Leave it to Beaver episodes recently)
I take my tea and my coffee black. No cream, no milk, nothing creamy at all. The only exception is if I am getting a crappy gas station coffee, I’ll mask it with a flavored creamer. Also, let me tell you a little story about cream itself. I was in London (the time I was supposed to be there for the MJ concert and we couldn’t cancel all the reservations so we went anyway) and during one of the tours, we were offered scones with cream. It was like, have a little scone with your cream…. seriously, it was a mountain of cream and I felt sick just looking at it! I don’t not like cream, I’m just very picky about where and when I’ll have it.
This tea turned out alright. I’m not in love, but it could grow on me. It has a nice texture and the cream flavor is subtle. It’s very much like caramel flavored teas I’ve had but without the caramel (yes, that made way more sense in my head at the time). But really, that’s how it is to me, so I’m sticking with it :p
Thanks for the sample DianeInOz :)
