4 Tasting Notes

I LOVE this tea. I’m still very new to explaining flavor profiles and undertones and such, but this is such a pleasant blend. While naturally sweet, it isn’t overbearing, the rose petals help balance it with just a touch of bittersweetness as an aftertaste.

If you are a fan of Steven Universe, this is truly a perfect embodiment of the titular character! The caffiene level was also quite enjoyable.

This is definitely a blend that I will be purchasing the larger 3oz bag when the sample tin gets low.

I personally add roughly 1 tsp of beet sugar crystals and a splash (1 Tbsp?) half and half.

Flavors: Candy, Chocolate, Fruity, Rose, Sweet

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 6 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

This is my new favorite tea! All of the flavors balance super well – the cornflowers bring a delicate floral sweetness to the spicy nuttiness, and I’m not sure if it is the blend of oolong and rooibos, but I don’t get the vaguely bitter aftertaste with this blend that I typically do with nut teas. I personally add beet sugar crystals and a splash of cream, and it’s worth drinking even in 90° summer weather.

Since the sliders don’t work well on mobile, I steep at 195° for 7 minutes. (I prefer a little bit lower temps with a longer steep time, I like my tea strong)

Flavors: Nutty, Spicy, Sweet

Ooh beet sugar crystals are a new one for me

Same here! Is it similar to rock sugar in size/sweetness?

Yeah! So I’m a super big hippie and found that they’re a more sustainable option, and actually are cheaper per ounce than amber cane sugar crystals! But they look about the same, with no artificial colors either. My account is still new so I’m not able to post photos but if you look up Spice Lab Beet Sugar on amazon you should be able to see what it looks like! :)
