Working my way through the dessert sampler at David’s Teas..
This tea doesn’t smell quite as overtly SWEET as it’s brewing, compared to some of the other’s I’ve had in the last couple days. I do enjoy the smell though, it smells rich, and slightly spicy. It’s not as strong of a smell as the blueberry jam I had yesterday. I do like the red swirls that come out as I bop my tea ball around, due to the red candies in the mix.
On first sip… Once again, my first impression is the actual flavor of the tea leaves.. which is what I’m still trying to make myself like. But there’s a whole lot of other things going on too. By the end of the second sip I have a very clear minty aftertaste! That’s fun! I’m not getting a whole lot of chocolate out of this, which is surprising given the amount of little chocolate chippies i saw in the blend.
Overall, I like this. It’s not particularly strong, and it has a very complex flavor with a minty aftertaste. =) Another successful tea for me! This whole “make myself like tea” thing is going WAY better then expected.
