Samurai Travelling Tea Box – Tea #17
Thanks Shae for including this one – it looks like I totally missed it when AQ2T was still open, and it’s a flavour profile I would have been all over if I’d seen it…
It smells really familiar dry (good!) and I struggled to figure out what was giving me the aroma deja vu but once it was steeping it was easily to put my finger on – it’s that distinct AQ2T honey flavouring coming through in full force! I like it here paired with strong pistachio and rose notes, but interestingly I’m getting much more of a “Turkish Delight” flavour than a Baklava – I think it’s because it’s a little too floral in general for what I associate with baklava?
There’s another serving left, but I’m keeping it for myself. It might not be baklava, in my opinion, but it is really good!
