So normally I’m not a floral/jasmine scented tea sort of person. Too fancy when I usually just want a solid cup to sip at while killing demons in D3 or surfing Tumblr. Lol! But last time I was in DavidsTea, while I was debating on getting more Buddha’s Blend, (debating since since I was more into black tea, I wouldn’t drink it as much), the lady at the counter said that this tea was very similar, but it was a black/green blend. So I figured what the heck and bought a bit….and then it just sat in my ‘to try bin’. XD
The smell is floral, but also fruity, which I wasn’t really expecting. It’s very pleasant and if it was a perfume or a candle or something I think I’d totally wear/use it (And I’m definitely not a perfume or candle sort of girl).
Unfortunately, tastewise, if I didn’t know this was supposed to have a black tea in it, I would never know because I can’t find a black tea taste in it. It tastes like a green tea, with that weird, green plant (not particularly veggie or grass, just plant) sort of taste to it. Overlaid with a floral/fruity vibe. It’s….not exactly bad, but I really wish there was more black than green tea in this because the current ratio just isn’t doing it for me.
Kinda bummed out about this, but so it goes.
Edit: I’m also apparently allergic to something in it since now I’m all itchy/reaction-y. Ugh. /mopes off to take a pill/
