Today I’m going to get sipping on Elmwood Tea Blend.
Upon opening the tea pouch you are engulfed with the rich earthy tones of the assam with sweet fruity notes from the elderberries and the hibiscus.
Let’s get brewing !
First sip was tealicious. I wasn’t overly sure what to expect from this tea blend with the flavour combinations working a long side an Assam tea. Like its aroma the tea tastes rich and earthy. With an almost every other sip sort of combination of fruity floral hints, bringing an extra level to the tea. Assam is known for its malty flavour and the use of this within the tea blend is perfect, especially as the base for the tea blend. The use of the hibiscus and the elderberries adds an almost delicate sweetness to the tea which takes the bitterness off of the Assam without needing to add anything sweet wise to it. Making it a perfect afternoon blend.
Happy Sipping 🙂
