Oh this is good. So very good. I love this Organic Fashionista Blend from Fashionista Tea!
The black tea base is comprised of a blend of Organic Congu tea and an Organic Breakfast Blend. This combination creates a remarkably smooth, rich, thick background of flavor. I think that’s what I’m enjoying most about this blend – it’s so solid! It’s well-rounded and flavorful and very satisfying. Notes of malt … earthy, it’s got a strong, biscuit-y character. Not brassy or thin.
The base alone is such a delicious tea, it’s rich and full-flavored … it really doesn’t need anything else. So the “treat” of this tea is that you also get some amazing floral notes from the addition of rose and lavender. Neither are overpowering, but they add charm and interest to the cup, and give it a decidedly “feminine” touch that a tea called “Fashionista Blend” just … needs!
There are also notes of citrus here from the bits of orange peel … but I’m liking how the orange doesn’t come off as “astringent” or adding a “light” taste to the cup (although it does certainly brighten the cup!) It is just an extra dimension of flavor to an already really enjoyable cup of tea.
An excellent cuppa! This is a tea that makes a great breakfast tea … or any time you want a really fulfilling cup of tea!
