Thanks Cameron for sending this my way!

This one is kind of like chewing a children’s grape Tylenol and chasing it with a piece of creamy dark chocolate behind it. No thanks.

Ha ha ha, ew! I didn’t even try it because violet lol.

Courtney

Hahaha! I’d never had violet before (I don’t think I’ve ever seen it in any teas I’ve come across), but it was closer to rose than lavender, so not for me — though always happy to try new teas. :)

Shae

That’s a very specific description. I think I can actually taste it.

Courtney

Shae perhaps I should apologise haha!

Lexie Aleah

I agree with Shae I could practically taste your description of it. I feel like violet is one of those love-it-or-hate-it flavors for people. I’m on the love it side though. I love the Choward’s violet candies but my mom thinks they taste like soap.

Bio

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug. I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted/green and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens (mango or pineapple, yum!).

Likes:
Raspberry, strawberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, blackcurrant, redcurrant, fig, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, jasmine, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
