So, this is the company that everyone had a lot of issues with around Black Friday right? Orders placed, none delivered – a trail of emails between consumers and the owners about them “already shipping things” and supposed “refunds” with only some people actually getting refunds. I have to say, I was curious to see what their tea was actually like given the fuss.
Of course, their website isn’t up anymore and their FB hasn’t been updated since November, so when I made the Steepster entry for this tea there was literally no information for me to add. So, the ingredients/added flavours and any actual information for this tea is sort of anyone’s guess…
Dry this smelled floral and sweet with maybe a little bit of fruity notes; but mostly quite candy like. Now that my cup has steeped, the aroma is fragrant and perfumey with sweet floral notes but also a little bit of a warming spice kind of note? It also smells really familiar but I’m struggling to place why or where from. Taste time…
Definitely sweet; has a very “candied rose” sort of vibe to it with creamy, fruity undertones. I want to say something like cherry or figs with some vanilla notes. It’s hard to say, honestly. The finish is kind of spicy in a very “sweet Chai” way. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and maybe even clove? It’s playfully astringent. I’m actually really perplexed by what the flavours are supposed to be because the ones I’m experiencing are such a weird assortment of flavours.
It’s frustrating though because I’m actually really enjoying the cup! Which is very bittersweet knowing what I know about this company. It’s like a strange version of Tea Drinking blue balls. Argh. Oh well; at least I got to sample it.
