Samurai Travelling Tea Box – Tea #11
I’m hoping Anne will be able to clarify this for me, but I know she doesn’t work with sunflower seeds anymore – this blend had sunflower seeds in it but I feel like I recently saw it on the site without them? Was this reblended recently(ish)?
I’ve wanted to try this tea basically since I knew it existed though, so I was insanely excited to have the chance – and I absolutely loved it as well! Something about the dry leaf visual seems to perfectly “Rocky Road” too, from the different types of mixed chocolate (the white ones look like marshmallow globs at a glance!) to the sunflower seeds. Plus, adding marshmallow root!? Genius!!
The flavour is really good – it’s creamy and rich but not cloying, and I get both the white and dark chocolate notes along side a maltier black tea base and hints of nutty sunflower seeds. It could maybe be more marshmallow-y, but it’s very close to being right on the money! I want to try it with milk next to push that ice cream element to the next level.
This is the first tea from the box that I’m keeping for myself – it’s just so good.
