It’s so hard to log onto Steepster on workdays. My day is just, poof, done between the shift itself commuting, getting ready, then having to do some domestic duties once I come back home before having to get ready for bed.
I bought this during their sale last month, loved the smell of it in the store, but once I got it home in the tin, I was initially a little confused. Wait. This is supposed to be vanilla and coconut, right? Then why does this smell like berries and cream? Maybe the sales associate put the wrong one in the tin? I had to wait for a while in order to investigate (that is, go back to the store and sniff their sample vials again). Sure enough, once I did, this really is the right one. The label on the tin has no mention of fruits, yet, when you go into the store, their little poster highlighting the notes/ingredients of each tea mentions that there’s cherry in here. Ohh, now that makes sense.
They’re so bad for including all the notes and ingredients, it seems, and it doesn’t help that they took down their site. Ok, at least their Facebook site still has a link to the info they have on their little poster in-store.
The taste of the tea is quite delicious. Light base with cherry in the forefront. It tastes like dried cherries and not at all cough syrupy. A touch of vanilla but I’m not getting any coconut in here. There are also cute little rosebuds here and there but I’m getting no flavour out of them.
This is even better when you let this cool down to room temperature. It’s fruitier and overall more flavourful. I should try it cold brewed sometime although I’m a little worried that the base may go weird.
