I am finally able to dig into my samples from Krystaleyn! Took me long enough, and I feel a bit guilty for waiting, but I was separated from my stash this weekend and this is the first chance I’ve really had to drink any of my teas. This is also one I’ve been meaning to try for a long time—I opted for Three Wishes in my first DAVIDsTEA order over this one, but since that turned out to be not so floral I’ve had plans to pick some up. But the reviews seem…. well, awful, so I’m thrilled that I have the chance to try it out first.
Well, apparently I have odd taste in tea, because I LOVE this. It’s the most heavily rosy blend I’ve had, but I adore rose so that is definitely a huge plus. It’s mostly all rose: there’s a hint of sourness from the rosehips which balances out the perfumey notes well, and then the fennel and licorice kick in. It seems like licorice is a big nope for many people, but I like it… then again, black jelly beans are some of my favorite, so it’s no surprise that I like a hint of it in tea as well. This is so close to what I wanted Three Wishes to be—I think I might blend the last of my sample with some jasmine. Either way, this is definitely going to make it into my cupboard!
