Backlog from yesterday: I’m finding all the tea that I got from Le Palais de Thes blends tend to taste very, very similiar. It’s all overwhelmingly perfume-y with generic bases. Also, I find that some of their descriptions of flavors are different on the packaging than they are on their website, which I find disconcerting. I’m a stickler for accuracy in description since I’m allergic to some things.
I cold-brewed the rest of what I had of this overnight. Cold-steeping this cut down on the perfume elements and it was much more pleasant, especially the rose. The base is still very generically black with a little sencha. There is also some fruity elements: The sample package says papaya, the internet description says mango… I’m leaning more toward papaya.
An ok tea, but I’ve definitely had better fruity AND better floral teas.
