I first tried this tea at a cafe called Steeps, and it quickly became one of my favourite teas of all time. I immediately bought a tin of it and then drank it with great enthusiasm. When I went back to purchase more, it had been discontinued. I was really sad! I searched high and low for it but couldn’t find it. Fast forward to several years later and I finally found it, and I recognised it because of its toffee pieces.
I ordered about 200mg because oh my god! One of my lost favourites has finally come home. And … when I tried it, I have to say I was pretty disappointed. It is nice, totally serviceable, but the creaminess and the layers of the toffee flavour seem lost to me. It seems to lose its flavour as I drink, and by the end it just tastes like hot water. It still smells good! But the taste is disappointing.
So perhaps I should beware the power of nostalgia when buying long lost teas, lol.
