18 Tasting Notes
Today has been a long day. Exams are this coming week, and while last week was dead week, this weekend is dead weekend! This tea is the perfect end to a day filled with studying and running around. The mint and chamomile are soothing and relaxing enough to help reduce the stress of my 8 am exam. I love this tea!
This tea smells like everything that is right with the world. I first received this tea as part of a Christmas present along with several other Teavana teas. I immediately opened all of the bags and then spent the next few hours just smelling and drinking the delicious teas! It was wonderful! All of the teas were great, but this one stood out especially.
When I first smelled this tea, it reminded me of the library in fall. The spices in this tea create a combination of flavors and smells that are reminiscent of old books, dry leaves, and antiques. All of my favorite things combined in one great tea!
I was apprehensive to taste the tea though. I was curious to see how the spicy, homey scent would translate to taste. I was not disappointed. The spice combination in this tea is lovely! It may be because I love cloves, but this is one of my favorite teas!
This is one of my favorite teas. It is very calming. I like to add just a little bit of honey to make it perfect. You cannot steep this tea for very long though. I believe it is because of the lavender. Whenever I steep the tea for over two minutes and thirty seconds, it tastes very strange. If you only steep it for that amount of time, it comes out perfectly!
