Ok. Look. I bought a box of this at the T2 Mother’s Day event the other week because I couldn’t resist the plush packaging, and I preferred the sweeter notes of this blend compared to the other two (Fuchsia and Ruby, both far more tart and obnoxious). My friends thought it hilarious that I would choose the most understated, something something my personality something something those jerks. =P
I was going to keep it in the top of the cupboard until I’d gotten through some more open options, but I don’t feel like I have enough caffeine free options available right now, and I love a post-dinner tea but have been having some sleep troubles lately (she types at 2am). Plus there is the fact that I actually received a second box of this (and a storage container, and a pair of teacups and saucers!) as a thank you from the company for filling out some forms to do with them using an Instagram photo of mine in a potential future book they’re publishing. Well, the book’s gone on the back burner for now, but I was quick off the mark getting my form in so thanks via presents was still in order.
So yeah. Long story short, Rose is open and away from the other two blends released in this same promotion I find she is still crazy full of flavour. I get all three—rose, chocolate and fruit. I find chocolate strongest on the nose and fruit strongest on the tongue but all three are in there.
And KikiLibertine is bang on the money about the dry leaf smelling of Baileys. SO WEIRD. And now I want Baileys. It’s been a while… so creamy.
