Valentine’s Day tea. The scent of this one dry is a little pungent and overpowering – like so many teas of this kind, it reeks of artificial strawberry and rose. In actual fact, though, it’s really nice. The main flavour is a deliciously sweet, slightly sugary, syrupy strawberry. There’s an undercurrent of lychee, which is a little richer and less sweet than the strawberry, and a delicious complement. I can’t really taste rose, but that’s just as well given that it’s not really my thing.
I’m enjoying this one a lot more than I expected to, given the initial scent. It’s not all that unique, as far as valentine’s teas go, but it’s certainly delicious! I’m pleased to have a significant quantity of this one, because it’s a tea I could drink pretty much all year round.
