In the bag:
Looks: Like some tea leaves and grandma’s 1983 bowl of Pier One potpourri had a party.
Smells like: Tea, flowers, chocolate.
Looks: Like black tea, steeped; maybe a bit on the pale side.
Smells like: The chocolate and roses really jump out. Sort of what I hoped Adagio’s Valentines would be.
Tastes: Almost sweet enough for me drink on its own.
Added sugar, added a little more. Best without milk, shockingly to me. The milk flattened every flavor to near non-existence.
I read on the PD forums that even their black teas can be brewed a 2nd time, so I gave it a whirl, since my ride was a little behind. Holy Cats! I think it was even better the 2nd time (and a someone who almost never re-brews…well, that’s huge).
Skipped the dairy but hit the sugar hard for the 2nd.
110% get the knitting podcasters’ exuviance over this blend.
I cannot wait for next month’s tea of the month so I can order more of this.
Flavors: Chocolate, Flowers, Rose
