From the group order a while ago!  I haven’t written  a note for this yet, and probably shouldn’t. It’s stored in a decent pouch but the flavors seem like if you took a bunch of odd duck flavored teas and mixed them together?  Yeah, this tea is old but it shouldn’t be THIS bad.  It just tastes like a muddled mix of flavored teas.  So don’t take this note as a representation of this tea especially fresh, but do note that it doesn’t age well.  Usually if it takes me this long to write a note for a tea, it means it wasn’t noteworthy to begin with though.   It was gross.  I didn’t even steep up a second cup, and that is RARE.  I will still give it a generous rating…
Steep #1 // 1 1/4 teaspoons for full mug // 35 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep

This tea is…interesting. I’ve had it 3 or 4 times now and just can’t make up my mind what I think of it! The flavor is rather muddled: lots of floral and fruity notes with nothing specific standing out. The base is smooth and unobtrusive. There’s no bitterness, astringency, or artificial flavor that I’m picking up on, so nothing to hate…but nothing to love either.

This is a strange one—even by DF standards, there’s a lot going on in the description. And that’s really what drew me to it in the group order. And while quite a few of the crazy complex DF blends I’ve tried so far have underdelivered, in that only maybe half of the flavor notes promised are detectable, this one really packs it all in. Unfortunately, the result is more faintly chemical muddle than delicious melange. I’m definitely getting the kola, which is a strange but not unwelcome note to encounter in a tea, and blackberry, and clementine, and a sort of candy blueberry, plus a powerful bouquet of florals.

I can’t really say whether these flavors play nicely together or not, though, since the blend is dominated by a strong bitter and chemical-tasting note. I steeped this for 3:30 at 195F, but I’m wondering if a shorter steep and/or a lower temperature may be in order. I’ll play around with this one a bit before giving up on it, but I’m thinking it may end up in my swap pile.
