From Sew Geek

Wei Wuxian’s Emperor Smile Tea was inspired by the beautiful chines drama “The Untamed”, which is based on the Novel Mo Dao Zu Shi. Wei Wuxian is a free spirit and a bit of a troublemaker. He befriends LanZhan and the two become very close. Wei likes to drink and his favorite is the Emperor’s Smile which is only available where LanZhan lives. the Wei Wuxian’s Emperor Smile Tea is a black tea infused with Burbon, Rooibos, Ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves, cornflowers, calendula, and vanilla. It has a very faint smoky flavor and when you drink it, it takes you to the burial grounds.

Latte Sipdown (1329)!

This was a gift from Sew Geek over on instagram – it was one of two samples she sent from her “The Untamed” fandom mini collection. I haven’t seen the Chinese drama series that this is based on, but I did enjoy the other tea inspired by the series that she sent.

The dry leaf of this one smelled quite good! Much more of a malty black tea aroma than a Chai one, with whisps of vanilla. It’s a mix of CTC black tea and rooibos, which is interesting to me – I definitely expected full bodied and intense but I like the idea of the rooibos with CTC because I feel like the rooibos will natural sweeten and balance some of the astringency and bitterness that comes with a CTC black tea.

In all honesty – I made this as a latte and it was disappointingly boring. The black tea malt and grain flavour is very strong and I like how bold it is, but it was also quite flat and lifeless. Other than thick intensity, there was an overwhelming lack of much else. Creaminess, aside from mouthfeel (because of the milk) or sweetness from the vanilla would have been nice or more of a warming spice note – but I didn’t really get either of those. It was just… too plain.

I enjoyed both of the other teas from Sew Geek that I tried (especially the Supernatural one) but this just didn’t seem to be up my alley, unfortunately.
