Hello out there! I’m going to be doing a bit of backlogging to catch up with my trip last week. (As much as I can, anyway: there was one tea that I looked at and thought, “No need to write that down! Surely I couldn’t forget a tea named ____ from the ____ company!” …Yeah. So, does anyone know of a maté tea in a teabag blended with several flavors including probably coconut from a well-known company?)
This was one of the teas available in the office, so I had it plain with hot water. It was tasty and sweet, but the problem is that I apparently use this exact blend of spices when I make tea eggs, so I kept expecting to the tea to taste like hard-boiled eggs. Of course, it doesn’t taste like hard-boiled eggs, nor should it, but the cognitive dissonance put me off what would otherwise be a rather pleasant cup of well-it’s-midafternoon-and-I-need-some-tea-at-the-office tea. It didn’t get too bitter when oversteeped, although it did get almost too strong.
