Tea #9 from Traveling Tea Box C
This tea was added to the box by BrewTEAlly Sweet, but I wasn’t able to find anything about it online except for an expired Etsy page. All the information on here came from the baggie she sent it in.
My nose has been acting up, so I can’t be exact, but to me this smells vaguely chocolatey. As you can tell from the picture I took, it’s obviously a black tea with some very pretty rose petals that add dimension and color.
After I steeped it, I was surprised to find the vanilla was so prominent. The black tea plays second fiddle to it, and the rose petals make only a slight appearance. That said, I can easily picture a pot of this sitting happily with a nice scone or two.
This was fun to try, but I think it will also be moving on to the traveling tea box’s next destination.
