Backlogging: I have had this twice but didn’t want to review until I had a chance to really pay attention to it. K S sent a very generous sample to me and we had it for tea time Wednesday as the final tea and again on Thursday with a friend and her two little girls. I finally had a quiet cup by myself so I could write a decent note!
This was smooth and sweet and my guest mentioned that every tea we had last week was very good. With all the chatting and food, I didn’t pick up enough detail to say why. The same thing happened Thursday.
Drinking it alone, I have to agree with K S. This is a smooth and pleasant base. The Rose and berry flavors are well balanced. The rose flavor doesn’t club you over the head. It swirls around and you say, “What was that?” Then you swish it around and say, “Ah yes, of course, rose!” It adds such a lovely sweet taste, and doesn’t taste like granny’s hand lotion. The berry taste is at a similar level – pleasant but not overpowering.
The little girls drank it readily. In fact, I have determined that in future I will have a pot twice this size when we have tea again as they drink hot tea so enthusiastically.
All in all, I give this tea a big thumbs up. It would be great to keep around for guests who aren’t sure what they like in flavored teas. Many thanks, K S!
