1016 tasting notes

Today was my birthday which was pretty uneventful but I babysat for a friend which was fun. This is a freebie that came with the teas I bought from Tea-Sipper’s Stash Sale. I’d been wanting to try this one and she was kind enough to send me some of it. It’s also my first time trying a tea from Simpson & Vail. This note is going to be brief as I am exhausted from babysitting all day.

I prepared this as the instructions said to and added the tiniest bit of honey and milk.

Taste wise I’m getting some soft floral notes that remind me of earl grey tea. Yet isn’t any bergamot in this or cornflower petals. My initial thoughts are that this is not what I expected it to taste like but if it were actually an earl grey tea. It would be an exceptional earl grey. The black tea base isn’t specified what type they use but it is really tasty and pairs nicely with the floral-ness. I don’t get lilac from this unfortunately but really am enjoying this. I definitely wouldn’t mind buying some more of this for my cupboard but would need to make a note to reach for it when I’m craving some EG.

Flavors: Bergamot, Earl Grey, Floral

Happy b-day! Too bad this one didn’t live up to expectations…I would love to try a lilac scented tea someday.

Thanks guys and I can’t complain since it still tasted really great.

I know this is late, but it’s been taking me a while to work through reading my back-log of tea reviews, so happy belated birthday! I hope to try lilac tea someday, one of the few florals I haven’t sampled yet. It is probably my favorite smelling flower, though!

Happy belated birthday! I hope you don’t give up on this one tasting like lilac. If you ever buy from Simpson & Vail, I’d suggest buying some super fresh.

I drink tea for many reasons: For pleasure, health benefits, mindfulness, to help with anxiety, hydration because I have always struggled with drinking plain water.
My rating system is kind of a mess and I keep telling myself I’ll fix it sometime.
