So I was looking at my tea collection and noticed this tiny tin was on its side, open, and spilling out everywhere. I took that as a sign that the tea was yelling “DRINK ME!” so I used the 1 perfect teaspoon of leaf left and brewed up a mug. I also brewed another tea alongside this which I promptly knocked over, causing a huge waterfall and fear for all the appliances and the power bar in the path of the running liquid which I am telling you because it means this tea cooled a fair bit before I got to drink it. Also, its quite old and was exposed to air and light for who knows how long (up to a week, possibly) so this review probably isn’t the best indication of the actual flavor of the tea.
Anyways, the tea is actually not bad today. Seems I had this once before and found the base tea overpowering. Today I am getting more vanilla. Vanilla and something floral. All on a bed of dryness. It’s better than I remember if I am being honest, thanks to that vanilla component, but still not great. This is a sipdown I am totally fine with having.
