I had mentioned I wanted to try this and Derk kindly offered to send me the rest of a tin to try! Thanks so much, Derk!
This has the strangest steeping directions I’ve seen yet. 80C for 10-11 minutes! It’s very lightly flavored. The scent is a wisp of my spice cabinet, a faint mixture of many herbs (must be the dried basil in the mix). I think the strongest bit that I’m getting is the blackberry leaf sweetness, but it’s not over powering. It almost has a minty coolness. Hard to pick out anything in the sip aside from the light mix of herbs I mentioned smelling, but the finish has a faint perfume to it. I can’t say I can taste the sandalwood, which is what caught my interest in this blend in the first place. I’m not taken by this tea and I really appreciate the chance to try it without having to commit to a 125g purchase. That would have been a disappointment especially after liking two other Laponics that Theodor has.
