Thanks to Kittenna for another S&V sample!
Again, hard not to have high hopes for this one given the heavenly scent wafting from the little baggie. But also yet again, the taste did not compare to the smell.
I tried it twice to be sure (using fresh leaves, not a resteep) and sadly, it’s just MEH. That’s the word I’d use if I had to sum this tea up in one word. Or “Disappointing”. Because it’s very watery, thin, not at all full bodied. The smell is misleading. There’s a faint hint of what it could have been. Untapped tea potential.
So this one is not on my wish list.
I’ve been spoiled by Della Terra’s dessert teas because the smell actually often matches the taste, and they’re usually pretty full bodied.
This one is drying out my teeth. That means it’s astringent, right? I still don’t really get that.
Glad I got to try it though because I would have assumed all S&V teas were as tasty as the Almond Sugar Cookie!
