This, too, has the slightly yeasty flavor that Cotton Candy Dandy also has. It is less noticeable in this blend, though. Otherwise, a fairly average black tea with some sweet nutty flavoring.

I made a second Petals & Poison order after really enjoying the first. Can’t say I love this blend, though. I’m not getting cotton candy at all. It’s oddly yeasty, like a low alcohol content beer.

That does not sound tasty! LOL

I was hoping to be closer to 100 sipdowns by now, but oh well. Progress is progress. Really enjoyed this tea, but won’t be repurchasing.

Still one of my favorite mint teas. The marshmallow root combined with the spearmint really gets me.

I ended up making another cup with the remainder of my little packet this morning. This is actually going on my repurchase list.

I’m a sucker for a glittery tea. Luckily, I also find this one really tasty! It actually tastes like the French Toast Crunch cereal (does that still exist?)

I had originally tried this in the Brutaliteas advent 2 years ago, fully expecting not to enjoy it. But, it ended up being one of my favorites from the advent. It tastes like Captain Crunch cereal, and I find it super easy to drink and mood lifting. I just bought a 2oz bag of it to keep at work.

I got vaccinated on Saturday! I ended up feeling absolutely terrible all day yesterday, but luckily the side effects seem to have passed. Sadly I didn’t drink much tea over the last couple days, but had another cup of this in the morning. Still syrupy sweet, like overripe stone fruits.

That’s exciting! So glad you’re feeling better!

Congrats on the vax!

Better to feel a few days uncomfortable, but protected!

I placed a Bitterleaf order in the middle of the pandemic, and it sadly just never arrived (stupid pandemic shipping issues). I was nervous about the package going missing again, so waited until just a couple of months ago to place an order again. The order arrived safely a couple of days ago, and I’m so in love with all of the teaware I got.
This is the lone tea I got in the order, and it’s a plum beauty for sure! It’s light and sweet, and was such a fun gonfu session. I couldn’t get enough of the stick sweet stone fruit flavor and aroma.

From Dustin’s advent. For some reason I thought this was fruity, so was surprised to taste chocolate! Not mad at all, though. The nutty chocolate cookie flavor is quite tasty.
