Happy Boxing Day, lovely people! Hope everyone is having a safe and peaceful holiday.
I picked this tea up a few weeks ago, but today is the first time I’ve been able to try it. It’s a very nice rose and strawberry blend. The fragrance of the dry leaves is highly perfumed, so much so that I didn’t think I would be able to enjoy this. Once steeped the smell is softer. It’s discernibly rose with a sweet general fruity note mixed in. There’s also a bit of an earthy note which made me hopeful since I like being able to taste the base tea in flavored blends. The taste is delicious. The mix of rose and strawberry is well balanced. There’s also a dried hay note and the slightest touch of astringency, which I found pleasant. I drank the first half of the cup without adding anything and found it enjoyable. I added a touch of monk fruit sweetener to the second half to bring out the strawberry flavor a bit more. It was also nice, but I think going forward I’ll drink it sans additives.
This one was a nice surprise. It’s like a bit of summer in a cup, and I’m here for it.
