Current cuppa – I wanted to work on tasting notes tonight but I keep getting distracted.
The dry leaf of this smells different than I remember; almost soapy? It doesn’t taste soapy at all, but maybe a little bit perfumey? The blueberry flavouring is very strong and that results in a sweet and coating candy blueberry flavour but it’s just undercut by a floral note that builds in intensity over sipping, and because of the seemingly heavy handedness of the flavour is sort of keeping coating the palate leading to that intense perfumed note.
It’s not bad but I feel like I should have been lighter with my steeping and that would have been more inline with past experiences I’ve had with this tea.
