I haven’t logged all of the new-to-me Bayswater teas I have picked up on my last trip, but it seems like all the ones I got 50g of, I’m loving and wishing I got more of, while the ones I automatically got 100g of because I tried and loved them before have actually been a letdown. Say what?
This is one I got 50g of because I wasn’t sure it would be completely amazing even though it was super fragrant and gingery in the gigantic canister. Yeah, this is great. It reminds me of DAVIDsTEA’s Ginger Pear, one of my favourites from them. The ginger isn’t too spicy or overpowering like biting into a chunk of the fresh root, but it complements the tart quince perfectly. The base is also mild and absent of any weird cardboardy undertones that some lower-quality black teas used for blends can possess. Now just watch. Next time I go to Vancouver and get 100g of this, it’ll coincidentally be cardboardy, stale, dusty, weird, or just not nearly as good because that’s how life works!
