Oh… Wow! OH WOW!! Thank-you QuiltGuppy for sending a small sample of this one my way! I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
When the package is opened all you can smell is cinnamon and freshly baked brioche, it makes me instantly think of my weekly indulgence. Brioche and a London Fog at Serious Coffee on Saturday mornings while I read a book and waste away a few hours (I am starting to get good at that)
But instantly I knew this would be a tea that I would not be sharing with my co-workers; I love to share tea, and they are forever telling me: “I think this is the point where we realise that tea is crack to you and this is an intervention” Nooooooo!
I have forgotten myself, the American Tea Room has nailed every nuance of flavour or brioche in this tea. From sticky brown sugar, to melted butter, to carb-sugar-gooey-goodness of soft dough – all of those flavours you can smell and taste. It was tough to share this with my co-workers and even tougher to leave behind at work as a Friday treat for the Manager who is covering me tomorrow for my extra long weekend off! (Friday to Monday!!)
This tea is a delight, and I will admit I am “biting the bullet” and applying for a credit card if only to get this one and Dan Cong sent to me on a regular basis… QuiltGuppy you are an influencer! (But don’t get me wrong, I am enjoying this!)
