With the high fruit content, it needs a bit more tea than you’d expect and a longer steep. The flavour is rich and smooth and spicy and honestly the best tea I’ve ever tasted. I only picked up 100g because neither aniseed or rose are usually my thing, but the flavours blend so well. Definitely going onto the permanent rotation.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Spices, Sweet, Toasty, Toffee
The dry leaf is earthy with malty overtones in aroma, and remarkably unbroken. Steeped for 4 minutes wasn’t quite enough, and I’ll probably increase the tea quantity from 1.5 to 2tsps for a cup of this size, but the flavours are everything you want in a breakfast tea – bold and well rounded, not at all floral, and that perfect sweet comfort spot between a kick and a hug that warms you all the way down, making you sigh involuntarily from relief – or is that just me??
Flavors: Dirt, Malt, Peat, Smooth, Toast
This tea is particularly warming, with a gentle taste reminiscent of cloves that becomes apparent after the initial tea flavour, which stays for a long time.
Deliciously smooth yet bold.
Flavors: Caramel, Cloves, Malt, Pepper, Resin
Something about this Monstrositea July box sample made me think it’d go just nicely as a cold brew, after I’d already enjoyed two delicious hot mugs of it.
Turns out I was right! The cold steep has a sweet pink blush and some great flavours to it. Plus it’s fun checking out the swollen cardamom pods after 12hrs of steeping.
This is definitely my favourite from this month’s offerings. I don’t mind straight black teas but more flavours are my jam.
I am kinda crazy about the first tea from the Monstrositea July box.
I love a good caffeine-free evening option and I’m also a sucker for a placebo like the “calming effects” touted with this. I’m a skeptic but I want to believe. In any case, it’s a pretty great blend of ingredients done well enough that I don’t even pick up on any obnoxious licorice root flavour—normally it overwhelms my tastebuds. It’s got me saying ooh, girl.
