45 Tasting Notes
I really enjoyed this one. I got this in my tea sparrow subscription box but decided to order more. It’s a light tasting tea with the pear very much present. I have done this hot and also cold brewed. Both were very good for me it just depends on my mood which I do. It’s a perfect simple light and beautiful tea.
I didn’t really get blueberry from this but it is fruity. I was leery because of the hibiscus, it can quickly take over the tea but it didn’t in this blend. It was a nice mixture. I only was able to get one steep from this though. The second steeping was wayyyyyy weaker. Definitely a juicy tasting tea. Overall one that I liked but not one that I think I will purchase more it.
This tea really does remind me a oatmeal raisin cookie. For me it was more the smell then the taste. It’s base is a black tea and I am only recently trying and learning to like some black tea flavors so keep that in mind. It was fairly smooth to me and I could smell the cinnamon and spices. There is cane sugar in the mix so it needed no added sugar for me. Pipping hot I didn’t enjoy it as much, but letting it cool just a bit brought out the cookie flavors.
Admittedly I do not usually like most strong black teas. Admitting that straight out. I got this as a sample with my Tea Sparrow order. For a black tea with ginger I just didn’t like it. The black base was so strong for me. I gave it to a coworker who does like black tea and she loved the sample. So if you like straight black tea I bet you will like it. I do like some black teas but they are usually blended or flavored.
