Mastress Alita’s Sipdown Challenge, March 2022: A floral tea
Woof! I’ve so many floral teas that are nearing the bottom of their tins and pouches – so, it was luck of the draw that is the first floral sipdown of March (there will be many more, with perseverance)!
Murchie’s isn’t usually super exciting (this black tea blend is kind of boring but consistent), but is passable English tea grandmother fare (bring out the scones!). I think the lavender flavouring is well-balanced too; the “cream” comes across as a vague sugary state that reminds me of cake frosting (or Angel Food Cake). The vanilla is candy-ish in tone. It’s a simple but cozy cup that I mindlessly drank up – with or without milk (milk makes the “cream” more real :P).
I’d possibly buy more if/when I visit Murchie’s. Tastes like a spring tea party in the garden.
Flavors: Astringent, Cake, Candy, Floral, Frosting, Lavender, Malt, Sweet, Vanilla
