Happy Boxing Day, lovely people! Hope everyone is having a safe and peaceful holiday.

I picked this tea up a few weeks ago, but today is the first time I’ve been able to try it. It’s a very nice rose and strawberry blend. The fragrance of the dry leaves is highly perfumed, so much so that I didn’t think I would be able to enjoy this. Once steeped the smell is softer. It’s discernibly rose with a sweet general fruity note mixed in. There’s also a bit of an earthy note which made me hopeful since I like being able to taste the base tea in flavored blends. The taste is delicious. The mix of rose and strawberry is well balanced. There’s also a dried hay note and the slightest touch of astringency, which I found pleasant. I drank the first half of the cup without adding anything and found it enjoyable. I added a touch of monk fruit sweetener to the second half to bring out the strawberry flavor a bit more. It was also nice, but I think going forward I’ll drink it sans additives.

This one was a nice surprise. It’s like a bit of summer in a cup, and I’m here for it.

As expected, I am still not a fan of hibiscus. It is very soothing but just not for me.

Wow. What fragrant and flavorful tea. The first thing that I can say about this tea is that it’s not an everyday tea. Nor is it a session tea in my mind. The floral and fruit flavors are bursting at the seems though, and that’s not something that every flavored black tea can deliver. It manages to deliver what’s advertised AND taste like a black tea- body, astringency, earthiness are all in line with a medium tasting black tea.

Tea Journey: When I sip on a cup of picadilly blend I’m transported to a more refined, sophisticated time and place. I imagine that I’m on a garden terrace, overlooking beautifully kept gardens and lush orchards. The gentle afternoon breeze that rustles the greenery below me reminds me to take another sip. Refreshing, bold, complex. I ponder the meaning of my place in the world as I watch the Picadilly perform a waltz in my clear glass pot. Black, gold, and royal blue.
