drank Hot Cross Bun by Arthur Dove Tea Co.
1458 tasting notes

This smells really interesting in the bag, but the flavor isn’t translating how I’d hoped. There is something a little savory and broth like in this for a second and it’s a little tart at the end from the modest level of hibiscus. I’d like to lower the steeping temp and maybe time in hopes to get a different cup from this tea. It isn’t bad, I just haven’t figured it out. I have no idea what hot cross buns taste like. I’ve only once recently come across a place that sells them, but they were sold out by the time I got there. It would be fun to do a side by side comparison of this tea and it’s namesake bun!

I hope you figure out the tea!

I’ve had grocery store attempts at hot cross buns, but I wouldn’t rely on their authenticity.

I hope I figure the tea out too! What do they taste like? The place that was sold out was a bakery that was a little on the fancy side, so I’d hope they’d be somewhat true to the pastry. Are they a seasonal before Easter thing? I have some googling to do!

The ones I’ve had are something like a very slightly sweet yeast bread with a little powdered sugar glaze on top; sometimes raisins in the dough, sometimes candied fruit.

Bio

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. 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! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
