on first burn, let wax reach a full melt pool to avoid tunneling. (around 2 hours) with every consecutive burn, keep wick trimmed to about 1/8 - 3/16” inch. do this by pinching off the curled bits of the black, not the entire black portion! it is natural for the flame to dip in and out on different burns, so long as it does not fully go out. for best results, use a long lighter (hold it to the wick for about 5 seconds) to properly fuel the flame. remember, patience is key here! wood wicks take time to maintain as they are essentially mini fireplaces. :)

to avoid fire hazard, never leave a burning candle unattended and always light on a heat proof surface. keep out of reach of flammable objects, pets, children, or anything that may catch on fire. do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time. stop use when only 1/2” of wax remains.
Tea Party | Brown sugar + Vanilla + Bergamot
I have really enjoyed the new Tea Party candle from Mala! I think that the new formula burns very well and I love the Tea Party scent.
I was most excited for this one and motivated my purchase of four candles but I'm so dissapointed that I can barely smell it
Unfortunately, the Tea Party candle smells nothing like the brown sugar, vanilla, and bergamot scent glossary/description on the website. It smells like very floral perfume and instantly gave me a headache. There is no sweet brown sugar or creamy vanilla scent at all. Earl Grey is my favourite tea and it smells nothing like Earl Grey, London Fog, or even black tea. Since it has a strong floral scent, I thought it may have been mislabeled and was actually the Bloom candle. I contacted Mala and they sent me a replacement Tea Party candle, but it smelled just as floral as the first one.
So I contacted them about exchanging it and was told I would have to drive to their warehouse in Richmond, which is a 45 minute drive there and 45 minutes back from where I live, so an hour and a half drive just to exchange a candle. I wasn’t impressed since it wasn’t a mistake on my part. The other option was for me to pay to ship the candle back and then choose another candle and pay for shipping again, but then I’d be paying for shipping 3 times overall (including shipping for the original candle) and shipping is expensive. I ended up going to the warehouse to exchange the candle, but it just wasn’t worth the time and money. I’m happy with the Strawberry Shortcake candle that I exchanged the Tea Party candle for, but it just ended up being such a hassle and wasn’t a good experience.
One of my new favourites… it’s very comforting.
This is not only cozy but also smells elegant? I get massive milk tea and fancy high tea vibes - this is the scent that I almost consistently have in kitchen and hall
