It’s about time I visited Tea Desire again. The employee was über chill and honest. She didn’t hesitate to tell me which blends tasted weird to her, and we also talked about all the ones we once really liked but got tired of because we drank the hell out of them (like Irish Cream and Champagne Cassis). She warned me that this one gets super sweet, which I was expecting, and both agreed that perhaps mixing it with a black tea would balance things out.
Here I am sipping things for the first time, and it is indeed very sweet. Kind of reminds me of an even more sugary, yet watered down, rendition of DAVID’s Chocolate Macaroon but with added banana. As this cools, it sweetens up even more, kind of like licorice root-level sweetness.
I’m glad I picked this up, and between experimenting with it further with black bases and the heaviness of the tea itself, I’ll probably go through this rather quickly. But I can already tell that it won’t be a repurchase.
