This is a queued tasting note.
Thanks to MissB for the sample! I’m almost through with the teas you sent my way – and honestly, this was probably the least exciting of all the ones I’ve tried.
That’s not to say that the concept for the flavour was unexciting – I feel like I’m actually one of few people who actually likes Christmas Loaf/Fruit Cake (so long as there are no raisins) so I thought it’d probably taste pretty good. And, it’s not so much that it tasted bad either – what it really boils down to is that it just, well, ’didn’t taste’.
Seriously, this must be super subtley flavoured because I just tasted weak, mid-quality black tea up until the end of the timolino and then I got the faintest little whisp of vague generic fruit. I didn’t think my expectations were that high for this one, even if I was excited – they were so far from being met though. I finished it because it was definitely drinkable but out of everything I’ve tried from MissB’s treasure trove of blends so far this is the least shiny and memorable.
Oh well; on to the next blend I suppose…
