Thanks Roswell Strange for this sample.

I am finding I am having a hard time picking up the scents in the dry Tea Desire teas. This one appears to be what looks like sencha green tea with flower petals mixed in. Not getting much scent.

The brewed tea tastes very floral. It is a slightly astringent green tea, but also buttery and creamy like sencha usually is. I can strongly taste the rose, as well as the other cornflower and sunflower petals. I am not picking up much mango or lychee flavour. At the end of the sip, there does seem to be a fruity flavour, possibly mango, but I am finding it to be very perfumey tasting.

Edit: After it has cooled to almost room temp, there is more of a fruit flavour. It could be lychee, but it actually reminds me more of overripe apples.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
