You know, I think this is an under-estimated or overlooked tea at David’s, and I really hope they don’t pull it because it isn’t a fruity stunner. There are definitely people who love a good floral tea, and this one delivers. I don’t know that I can distinctly identify the rose and jasmine in this tea, although it certain has a generic floral profile, but also manages to be slightly reminiscent of, like, fruit loops or something (which I have absolutely no problem with). I screwed up this particular cup, because the keurig had a spasm and dispensed some really random amount of water in the cup, but it still yielded a thick, floral and slightly fruit loopy taste. Perhaps when I finish blueberry jam, this can work its way into my rotation, because it’s certainly a spring or summer tea. I also can’t taste too much of the base, although I can certainly smell it. It’s ok, though. I often feel that with floral teas, the flowers are what I want most, and the base can calm itself for a while and perhaps shine freely a bit later.
And I know I need to brave grape expectations again, but that first cup was a legitimate monstrosity.
And whaddaya know-it’s still light out and it’s nearly twenty to seven! woohoo!
