If garam masala ingredients got together and decided to compose a dessert-like tea symphony, this would be it.
The flavors here, unlike in so many flavored teas, don’t compete with the black base whose presence here is that of the main player: moderately bodied with very little acridity, especially for having been steeped on the longer side. The aroma is decadent—a bakery full of cinnamon buns: rich, spicy, and buttery notes which fully translate into the flavor.
Cardamom, coriander, and cinnamon in a very balanced ratio. A treat.
Also: Leigh, you are now a goddess in my book. I found out just after receiving your package last night that this was a limited edition tea and that DAVIDs is no longer carrying it. There’s got to be more than 50 g here. Sending serious tea hugs to Georgia. <3
