Happy Valentines Day to all!
Another tea from the first round of the EU travelling tea box. I’m at my parents house now for 4 or 5 days and I grabbed a load of random samples to bring with me, but also made sure I have some nice unflavoured tea too should the mood arise.
I’m off out in a bit for a lovely Valentines dinner at my favourite local vegetarian restaurant. Plus out of the blue this morning I received a cheque for £200 from the tax company because I overpaid in 2009, since I packed my business in this year it’s a very welcomed surprise. And on valentines day too.
Anyway back to the tea, serving this one with a cheese scone.
Once steeped the tea is a lovely red colour and has a sweet, perfumed berry aroma.
This tastes sweet and sugary, like candied fruit pieces, but it’s also somewhat perfumed. The fruit tastes like a mixture of berries and apple and though it is sweet it also has some sour notes.
It’s a nice tea but nothing out of the ordinary, I don’t think I will remember this one above any other generic fruit blend. But it’s always nice to try new teas.
