Tea tasting used to be a pretty big hobby of mine in the ye olde days of highschool. Although I never stopped loving tea, I did lose that sense of fun in being a tea critique and keeping a journal of my different forays and journies in the world of tea due to circimstance. A few big changes in my life have led me back to rediscovering the things I used to love, and I am so happy this website still exists.
Blog post aside! I tend to shy away from bagged teas, but I would consider the Downton Abbey blends an exception to this rule. Am I suseptible to marketing? Yes, probably. I fit the niche of Victorian/regency era aesthetic loving demographic RoT makes these teas for. I have no shame, but I digress again.
As for the tea. In the tin I get a very creamy scent. Steeped the scent dampens a little bit (dissapointing). It’s a very plesant black tea with caramel flavors, veering into the buttery side. It’s a very comforting dessert tea. Not unpleasently heavy, but leaving me satsfied after having a cup or two. It’s not the most special thing I’ve had, but I will reach for it now and again at work, and as a substitue for my at least once monthly bread pudding cravings!
Flavors: Bread, Butter, Caramel
