This is another tea I received from Friday and it represents the Doctor in a Sci-Fi series that ended before its time, unfortunately. Here’s to you, Simon!
This blend includes Darjeeling, lime peel, and blue cornflower for a unique aroma and flavor. A lightly creamy, citrus-y smell dominates the aroma and leads nicely into the tea itself.
The lime peel adds a strong note to the liquor and joins the mild floral flavor of the Darjeeling for a slightly astringent, yet enjoyable flavor.
As I drink this tea, it takes me to a beach house on the sea side, enjoying this nice cup of tea with a book on the porch as the waves crash in the background. It’s a relaxing blend with a touch of luxury, but retains a few hard edges to keep it interesting.
I’m definitely enjoying the Doctor’s Blend, but it is not something I’d probably add to my permanent cupboard because it’s not quite suited to my taste exactly. Though I’d be curious what flavor profiles would come forward were it blended with something milder than the lime peel.
