Hmmm…

So, this tastes quite different from what I expected and it did take me a moment to really reflect on what I was tasting and how it didn’t mesh with what I had anticipated. The flavour is definitely sweet and there’s a distinct vanilla custard type note that does match up with what I associate with a creme brulee or creme brulee inspired tea. The thing that through me for a bit of a loop is actually in two parts. Part one is that there’s this very fruity kind of undertone to the blend that was really unexpected – and I feel like it might be from the black tea base itself, because it’s a sort of figgy red fruit vibe that does sort of match with flavours I’ve experienced with this leaf style.

The other thing that through me for a loop was more of an absence of flavour – and that’s the kind of bitter burnt sugar note that feels really crucial to me in in order to offset the very rich sweetness and creaminess of a Creme Brulee. A think just a little of something in than vein would have helped a lot because this got to feeling rather cloying for me by the end of the mug.

It’s still a nice tea overall, but I think I really need to try it again with a perception shift and see how I feel about it knowing more what it’s going to taste like going into the mug.

Sipdown! and good thing too because my cupboard is about to get bigger again courtesy of my husband picking up teas from variaTEA – both samples AND orders. I’m super exited about it even if it’s just for the sake of more options. I’m discovering that when i was working in the office, a smal cupboard was totally fine becuase i was only drinking 2-4 different teas a day. Now that i’ve been working from home for months, i’m up to 4-12 different teas a day. And soooooo i need more teas lol

Courtney
