drank Toffee Dream by Zen Tea
2246 tasting notes

Sipdown, 259. I know, I know. Over 70 of these are samples. SAMPLES! So now that things are organized, sipdowns must occur.

This is a tea I keep passing up when I order from Zen Tea. Smelling it steeping told me that was probably a good idea. MissB gave me just enough to try, which is good!

It smells sickly sweet. Definitely a toffee/caramel smell, but with no black tea to hold that sugar down, I’m not really attracted to the bouquet. Drinking the tea, I get some white tea base during the sip, but then a mouth full of sugary toffee.

Objectively, yeah, I can see this as a good tea – something that people would like. Sadly, I just don’t care for it. I’ll probably keep sipping on this cup for a bit, but I won’t be able to finish it all. Sorry, tea. It’s not you, it’s me.
