Thank you Shadowfall for the sample! This really sweet – it seems like I am getting mostly caramel but there’s just a touch of ginger in it to make it stand up straight. It’s very delightful and I think someday I would like some more.

Teas: White Peony, Caramel, Ginger
Much like Eowyn, this blend is soft at first, unassuming, and then gives way to feisty bite. Eager to prove it’s worth, it finishes with a soft, smooth kick. This is a soft floral tea with ginger notes and soft, sweet caramel to round it out.
Company description not available.
Dry this smells very strongly of caramel and peonies…which carries over nicely once steeped. While hot you can still pick up the caramel scent – albeit a bit fainter – but it’s layered in snugly with what smells like a strong black tea and an odd plant-sap-ish note that seems a wee bit discordant.
A few sips in and the discordant feeling hasn’t faded…but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a strong black in the front, floral notes in the middle and a smooth caramel finish that makes this an oddly enjoyable cup.
I received a whole batch of this from Shadowfall, so I’ll definitely enjoy drinking it down. I’m not so sure as to whether it’s worth restocking, though…but I’ll have a while to make up my mind.
