This is a strange one. Its like this cross between a wonderful smell very similar yet again (second time I have tried a tea that smells like this today) of Strawberry Zabagilone, and yet there is this icky smell lofting in the background (rotted fruit?) . I can also smell the creamy flavor in there. I want to like this as I pick up on many good flavors but yet something is off with this tea.
I think as others have said – they just tried to do far too many things with it. Perhaps there are blend masters who can in fact go all out like this but I am not thinking Tealish hit the mark here.
Its just weird!
And you know what – I am getting a peppery flavor too which actually I kind of like but it does not make up for a serious LACK of flavor in the tea overall.
Sometimes I get a slight hint of something yummy then I take another sip and its dishwater – not that I have actually drank dish water, but ugh this one is getting dumped just because it is freaking me out.
<3 Love to Indigobloom for sharing this with me regardless.
Queen West Blend
A cheerful black tea blend with loads of colourful ingredients! Blueberries, cherries, raspberries, oranges, blackberries and cranberries are combined with blossoms for a taste that is as unique as Toronto’s Queen West neighbourhood, home of Tealish. A fruity black tea with a smooth finish.
