Oh wow. I wasn’t in the mood for tea this morning (yes, I know, such a thing is possible) until my wife waved the bag under my nose. Then I had to have a cup – and I was not disappointed.
Dry, it’s rhubarb and cream – a little bit tart, a little bit sweet, a bit of white chocolate scent. Dusty black tea somewhere in there.
Brewed, it was exactly what it said on the tin. A tart treat that mellowed out with the creaminess. The black base was rich but not overpowering, worked really well with the cream. The rhubarb was the strongest at the beginning of the cup, by the time I got to the bottom it had cooled a little and it was much more black tea. A bit of an Irish breakfast in taste.
PS I have a list of teas that I’ve drunk but haven’t logged so if it looks like I’m drinking a ton of tea, I’m just catching up.
