Damn my Whittards tins and their bloody similar looking labels! And damn me too for not looking more closely at them.
This wasn’t the one I was aiming for. I thought I was taking the English Rose just to check if I might be able to get over the fruity issue of it. It wasn’t until after I had added a heaping amount of leaves to the pot, a little extra to get rid of it quicker, that I realised the mistake. I was under the obviously wrong impression at the time that the English Rose was the last Whittard tea I had. (Not sure why I thought that, actually.)
So now I’ve spent rather more leaf on this cup than I would have had I know which tin I had actually opened.
I’ve certainly got me a strong and fortifying cup here now. Surprisingly though it’s neither astringent nor bitter. The flavouring has turned a bit less vanilla-like, but that’s okay too, because if it hadn’t at this strenght I suspect it would have been unbearably sweet.
(Also in the ongoing saga of the missing Kusmi package, Kusmi has now also tried to put in a search request for it. And this made Post Danmark send me a form to sign stating that I hadn’t received the package. Now why would they do that now when Kusmi put in a search request but not when I did? I’m currently under the impression that Post Danmark isn’t really taking search requests for missing packages from the recipient all that seriously…)
