T&C Box 1/18
Steepster is finally back! Now to backlog all the teas I’ve had this afternoon, starting with this one:
The Tea & Cards Teabox came today! After looking through everything in there this was what I went for first. Green tea sounds good right about now, rose is one of my favorites, and I’ve been wanting to give Kusmi a try.
This is an interesting mix. At first I didn’t think I liked it, because it’s strongly bitter, but as I continued to drink it I realized what a complex tea it is. It starts bold and bitter with an almost dried or powdered rose flavor, then slowly mellows out into a nearly candied rose taste. It’s sweet and changes many times throughout the sip, which means it’s anything but boring. The green tea base is sharp at first but then lends an earthiness to the rose flavor.
Usually bitterness turns me off tea, but this is actually growing on me the more I drink it. In fact it’s growing on me so much that I would probably buy it if I got the chance. There’s so much going on here that I’d definitely reach for it again. Thank you for sending this along, Nicole!
