So Christmas came in January this year, because the wonderful Kasumi sent me her 12 Days of Christmas along with so many other wonderful samples that I’m dying of excitement and I want to try everything all in one go. But I’m being a good girl and starting with Day 1, which is Cotton Candy Black Tea.
Dry, it smells exactly like cotton candy! Yummmm.
Brewed and tasted hot, it’s quite sweet, but not that sickly cloying sweet you get with a lot of flavoured black teas that use too much stevia right in the leaves. (I prefer to add my own stevia if needed — definitely don’t with this!)
As it cools down a smidge the sweetness has mellowed a bit. I love it~
