Day 4 of the 2016 advent calendar! I’m very excited for this tea as I LOVE floral/fragrant teas a whole lot. Luckily, this tea smells AMAZING, the floral smell is very strong with the rose and lavender being at the front, with the berries coming in from the background.
Steeped, the tea gets a surprisingly amber color, which might be the berries. Speaking of, the smell is also more skewed towards the berries when it’s steeped. With nothing added, the tea is pretty good, it’s nice and fragrant with some… leafiness to it? I can’t quite describe it. With sugar added, I think it brings out the lavender a lot more, which I enjoy. I think I’m going to throw the remainder of this cup into the fridge so I can try it iced though, because I might pick this up since I love fragrant iced teas.
Overall, I think that this tea is a pleasant surprise for me. I’m glad it was in the advent calendar so I could try it, and now I want to get more.
Flavors: Lavender, Rose
