drank Secret Weapon by DAVIDsTEA

This one smells quite almond-y dry, though now that it’s steeped I’m getting a scent of…pencil lead? That can’t be right. Perhaps weapon is the key word here.

The taste is not so bad. But I’m finding it difficult to get past that bizarre scent. I go to take a sip and all I can smell is pencil lead. What’s up with that? May be a deal-breaker Secret Weapon.

haha pencil lead! that sounds about right.
Secret Weapon and i do not get along. no way.
i didn’t even like the scent of the tea dry. needless to say we’re no longer on speaking tearms.

Bio

My partner and I live with our bunnies and cat. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens.

Likes:
Raspberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
