Thank you so much inspired by jane for sending me this to sample!
This tea is more than tolerable and most definitely handsome enough to tempt me, so check your pride at the door, Darcy, and sip away! :)
The tin these sachets come in is really a keeper, and the sachets themselves are of high quality. No skimping on leaf here, as the sachet plumps up entirely, awaiting its multiple steeps. The lavender goes so nicely with the green base, and the hint of lemon as an accent tempers the floral element, preventing the tea from becoming perfumey. Such a refreshing tea, and I’m sure it would take honey as a nice compliment.
I made a whole event of tasting this tea, running upstairs and turning on Colin Firth’s Pride & Prejudice. Watching Lizzie stroll the grounds of Pemberley while I sipped this tea was truly a delightful experience! I’m so happy I got to try this, because these are definitely teas I will keep in mind for myself, and for fellow Jane Austen lovers as gifts.
Flavors: Lavender, Lemon
This is one of a series of five teas inspired by Jane Austen. The tin is attractive and should be useful for something after the tea is gone. Inside are 10 sachets each containing 2 grams of leaf. The leaf appears to be very nice quality – definitely not grocery store fare. The sachet aroma is mostly cinnamon (very pleasant and not over the top), along with a sweet fragrance wrapped around the black tea. This is kind of cherry like and reminds me of my grandfathers pipe tobacco when I was a kid.
A two minute steep produced a nice orange/red brew. Because of the cinnamon, my brain tries to interpret this as chai, but there is no cardamom or other typical chai spices. This is flavored with Marsala wine (no alcohol in the tea).
The taste is really good. At first you catch the cinnamon. This is replaced by a sweetness with a touch of peppery spice. It fades into a flavor that inspires thoughts of cherry wood. I have never tasted Marsala wine, but if it tastes anything like this, I would love it.
A little pricey but I really enjoyed the cup.
