This tea came in my first Tea Runner’s February 2021 Classic Subscription Box that was a gift from a family member.
This one is somewhat underwhelming it’s not what I was expecting it to be. The name and description of the tea don’t really fit the tea itself.
It just tastes like a nice and smooth malty assam. Similar to that of Steven Smith’s black tea offerings. While the dry leaf does have some pretty rose petals, and rose hips added it doesn’t come through in the flavor. According to the website there are also supposed to be some heart-shaped sprinkles but I dug around in the pouch and didn’t find any. I don’t think that would necessarily change the flavor though. It’s a nice black tea if a bit simple but not something that makes me think of Valentine’s Day. It’ll be nice to have another plain black tea to drink in the mornings.
