This is a beautiful, light tea with a lot of natural sweetness that makes a great substitute for actual dessert. I infused it three times with very little loss of flavour between infusions so it is also a tea that keeps on giving and would be a great post-dinner treat.

Unlike Adore’s Turkish Delight (black tea with cacao and rose), the sweetness here tended more towards a honey caramel note rather than chocolate, with the taste and fragrance of rose to brighten it. I would certainly drink this interchangeably as a lighter alternative to Adore.

The recommend brew time is 3 minutes at 80C so my first brew was a little oversteeped at 5 minutes+ (oops) and I could taste a little astringency behind the tea, but subsequent brews at 85C for 4 minutes and 90C for 5 minutes worked well.

Highly recommended for those with a sweet tooth.
