The tea box is here and I randomly grabbed a tea to try. The pearls are pretty big, and I do like a strong morning cup, so I put three in and tried a quick 3 minute brew. This first steep smelled like soap to me, something about the flowery component just didn’t seem that appetizing. The tea actually tasted better than it smelled, the soapy, flowery note was up front, but a cocoa note lingered as an aftertaste. The second steep for 5 minutes it still soapy, and some of the cocoa notes have faded.
Glad I got to try, but this one’s not for me.
