I was in the mood for this tea tonight. I typically don’t crave floral black teas, but it just seemed to fit. I like the scent much more than the actual taste. It smells like a rich jasmine tea paired with a lingering creamy vanilla.
The beginning of the sip is sweet and floral (where’s the vanilla?), but then seems overwhelmed by the tea base. The finish is dry and astringent and it washes away any memory of initial sweetness. Sad.
I still have a few more Golden Moon samples to try and I just don’t know if I want to drink them. I have been disappointed with their tea cup after cup.
