This tea smells really good dry! I’m not sure what I’m smelling because I’m not familiar with black currant or shou mei, but it seems kind of delicious. I have smelled bergamot before, but I don’t remember exactly what is smells like aside from citrusy, so I really can’t pick out any of the flavors individually. What I can say is that it blends well together. Each sip tastes and smells very floral and I like floral! Adding a little sugar really brought out the flavors. I’m a little sad that this is the last of the sample, so I resteeped it for all it was worth. The first steep was really flavorful with the second being fairly close to the first with only a little diminished flavor. The third time still had some of the flavors but was a bit on the boring side. This one ends up being a little pricer that the other teas which is a bummer because I really want more and I’m trying to be good about a tea budget right now! I’ll just have to keep huffing the empty packaging and hope it doesn’t sell out before my tea buying ban is over.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
