Childhood memories didn’t stand up too well. The dry leaf smell is amazing, but the ceylon is way to strong. Passionfruit is the strongest nectar you get, but everything else is overpowered by the black tea. It absolutely NEEDS cream and sugar to taste the other flavors and sway off the ceylon.
The lesson of this tea is that Nostalgia can be deceiving. I wanted to see how veered my perception was anyway. This is an amazing flavor combo and one of the best dessert teas that I’ve had with cream and sugar, but that’s not ideal for health nut me.
I need to officially avoid Ceylon. Maybe I can get a better taste with less leaves.
