Love the flavor, definitely puts me in the fall mood
This is a lovely, unique tea. The flavor combination doesn't sound like it would necessarily work, but they harmonize very nicely together.
Words escape me as I try to put this flavor into words. It's an entirely new taste I've never experienced in a tea before. The creme brulee flavor definitely carries to the forefront, but the diversity of gunpower, rose, apple, and cinnamon blend together so seamlessly that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, creating something entirely novel. I also noticed that even though I (accidentally) steeped my first serving at 212 degrees, the tea didn't 'burn,' though I imagine steeping at 108 degrees would coax more flavor out of it. Very much worth buying a sample, just to experience its uniqueness. The flavor isn't smokey or bitter in the slightest, but brings to mind the crisp scent of a stale autumn morning.
I am not a green tea fan, but this was actually a pretty good tea! Not my favorite, but still nice. The flavor is very weak, which I am not a huge fan of.
