4 Tasting Notes
I LOVE this tea. I’m still very new to explaining flavor profiles and undertones and such, but this is such a pleasant blend. While naturally sweet, it isn’t overbearing, the rose petals help balance it with just a touch of bittersweetness as an aftertaste.
If you are a fan of Steven Universe, this is truly a perfect embodiment of the titular character! The caffiene level was also quite enjoyable.
This is definitely a blend that I will be purchasing the larger 3oz bag when the sample tin gets low.
I personally add roughly 1 tsp of beet sugar crystals and a splash (1 Tbsp?) half and half.
Flavors: Candy, Chocolate, Fruity, Rose, Sweet
This is my new favorite tea! All of the flavors balance super well – the cornflowers bring a delicate floral sweetness to the spicy nuttiness, and I’m not sure if it is the blend of oolong and rooibos, but I don’t get the vaguely bitter aftertaste with this blend that I typically do with nut teas. I personally add beet sugar crystals and a splash of cream, and it’s worth drinking even in 90° summer weather.
Since the sliders don’t work well on mobile, I steep at 195° for 7 minutes. (I prefer a little bit lower temps with a longer steep time, I like my tea strong)
Flavors: Nutty, Spicy, Sweet
