I got this one from Sips by, too. I’ve reviewed it before, but it was almost eight years ago. My tastes have changed since then, and the tea I tried was a little old. So, this morning it gets a second chance.

The aroma is absolutely wonderful. Lush, dark berries and vanilla. It smells like a decadent dessert, almost like a strawberry shortcake, but with something more sensual and rich. I used 3 sachets for 24 ounces of water, and it came out plenty dark. I’m glad I saved my fourth sachet for a single cup later.

This tea tastes romantic. I don’t know how else to describe it. It’s creamy with vanilla and sweet with currant that reminds me of blackberries. Heavy and caramelly. The black tea base is strong but smooth with only a little astringency. Something about this makes me want to put a big dollop of whipped cream on top. I’m going to have to up my rating. 79 was far too low.

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

After 10 years on Steepster, I have given up. The lack of maintenance, updates, and mobile compatibility have finally discouraged me. I still use my Cupboard and add teas to the database, but I won’t be logging teas anymore.
