I love teas with a convenience factor to them. Prepping loose leaf tea is something I’m now used to and have worked that into my everyday. But there are some days that I don’t have time to boil the water, steep the tea, and pour it into my travel mug. Sometimes I just need to throw in some tea and go. I don’t yet have a travel mug that would steep the tea as I take on my daily grind. I need to look into getting one. But until I do I have this gem.
This tea has a slightly smokey black base finish with sweet caramel and vanilla notes in each and every sip. There are slight notes of tobacco, but very slight. I actually am surprised this tea sachet can pack this much flavor. I’ve had a few other offerings from Tozy Tea and this one ranks right up there with their Cherry Blossom, which I adore!
As this one cools, the flavors just continue to grow stronger. I even tried making this into an iced tea and the results were very similar. The only difference is the caramel and vanilla notes were more pronounced.
I think overall I preferred this one brewed hot. The tea gave me that warm and cozy feeling that a good tea will give you. I instantly wanted to curl up with a book and this cuppa. This particular tea sachet has such a simple yet delicious flavor.
Another winner from Tozy Tea!
