Day 10 of the 24 Days of Tea calendar! I drank these in order, I swear. Just catching up with impression notes…
I’m not a fan of baklava. I’ll eat it if someone puts it in front of me, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy any. So again expectations were low with this one. I don’t like ginger (in it), I don’t like rose petals in my tea (in it), and I’m not a huge fan of baklava (inspiration for the tea). This isn’t exactly a recipe for success.
Smelled the tea in the tin and OH MY GOD HEAVEN. Not sure where exactly the “baklava” comes in, but JESUS MOTHER this smells good.
Made the tea. The smell of it was making my mouth water, it smelled so good while it was steeping. Wanted to try it so badly I burned my mouth on the first sip. Way to go, self. A bit more self-restraint for sip two, dontcha think?! Waited a bit for it to cool.
YUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. The taste still isn’t baklava to me. Sure, it’s a bit nutty, a bit rosy, and a lot spicy. Even though I think it missed the mark with the name of the tea, the tea itself is still THA-BOMBIZZLE.
Verdict: Will definitely buy before it’s discontinued.
