I’ve been sitting here over the past twenty minutes mindlessly sipping on this tea not realizing that a) this is actually Fantasy Island and b) I’ve yet to log it.
So this is the infamous Fantasy Island? More like Catastrophe Island. Ok, maybe a little harsh, but I hardly taste any coconut or raspberry. There’s a vague creaminess but that’s it.
Now I feel bad harping on Bayswater’s Merlin’s Magic, which is coconut and raspberry, which I thought was a little too mild. But in comparison, Bayswater’s blows this one out of the water.
I can smell a faint artificial raspberry note in the background but don’t get any in the flavour. The base is weird. I don’t know. I don’t get it. If it makes any difference, I’m drinking it hot with a bit of half and half. I didn’t bother taking a sip before adding the cream. I’ll make sure to do that next time. Just that the steeped tea on its own smelled rather boring and astringent.
