LET IT BE KNOWN that I’m just here to post a note and then I’ll likely disappear again. Hello! Goodbye!
This tea. I’m blaming Dexter for this. But it was a free sample, so I suppose that’s ok.
It smells like cacao shells and pineapple when I sniff it dry. Really chocolatey and fruity. So nice. The most interesting notes are tobacco. So, for example, when you have a really nice pipe tobacco and it smells earthy and rich and fruity. Like that. Not like smoke. Tobacco as a perfume fragrance is never smoke. This is what it evokes. Vanilla and warm woods. Sweet fruits. Cacao shell (similar to chocolate, but not the same).
Steeped, and sipping it, the pepper comes out. It’s a really nice flavour. Still the vanilla and warm woods and juicy fruit, some cacao shells (but not enough for me right now… I find cacao shells smell more than they tend to taste), delicious black tea.
I’m having it with some milk, which might take down the pepper somewhat.
I really like this tea. I might be considering an order. Which is weird. Because I think I’ve spent $30 on tea in the last 8 months.
Flavors: Cherry Wood, Earth, Pepper, Pineapple, Tobacco, Vanilla
