First review, I feel so nervous.
We got our order of 20+ samples from TeaTaxi last night and I am so excited to dive into all of them. The box was so pink and cheerful, and there was a very nice little note inside that I had to have translated by my francophone coworker this morning. With an interminable staff meeting looming in front of me, I brewed this hoping it would live up to its name.
This is a strong black tea, very tasty, but just that – black tea. The delicate flavours of the almond and calendula disappeared completely. Maybe a shorter steep with the second half of my sample package would fend off that dark rich black flavour. It was very tasty, and so far seems to be living up to expectations of not letting me fall asleep on a pile of meeting notes. But I don’t know if I would be able to pick it out of a line-up, so to speak. So it’s not a restock.
