Made this last night since I’ve had it forever and I wanted to see if it’s still any good. Originally I picked this tea up from a little shop about an hour+ drive from where I live. That was….geeeze, at least over 2 years ago. x.x; But since I haven’t had much luck with ‘newer’ tea, I wanted something simple. It’s one of those teas that you like, but not really enough to drink everyday. So it gets shifted around until it’s at the back of your cupboard, then you find it one day and you’re like ‘Oh I love this tea!’. Lol.
Onto the tea. It’s a neat little tea that has curly leaves and little red sugar crystals mixed together. Not sure what type of tea it is since I wasn’t into tea like I am now when I got it, so I didn’t think to ask. The smell is a simple sugary vanilla.
Brewed this has the same smell as the dry leaf, and the taste is lightly vanilla and black tea. Not malty or peppery or tobacco or whatever, just a nice straight black tea taste with a vanilla highlight. Even with all the sugar from the crystals, it’s not really as sweet as you might think. I actually added a smidge of Truvia and it made it very nice.
I’m almost out of it now, but I don’t even know if the shop is still there or if they still carry Star of Persia anymore. Lol. I’ll have to check around online to see if someone carries it since I’d hate to be without it honestly.
