drank Bakeapple Tea by The Dark Tickle
1621 tasting notes

First of all the name of this company weirds me out just a touch as it sounds more than just a little dirty – like you’re being molested in a dark room or something…. 0_o

It’s worth mentioning that bakeapple isn’t an apple at all but a type of wild berry related to a raspberry. I orginally thought that this was a loose-leaf tea, but when I got it I was disappointed to see that it’s actually a set of tea bags filled with fine tea dust (Boo!).

The taste started out lightly fruity and berry-like, but then WHAM the bitterness hits at the back of the mouth. I’m all for buying stuff from small, local companies but I wasn’t terribly impressed with this.

Woooow. That’s creeptastic, Jillian. I felt dirty even typing that into Google to do some research on them. Their website is so bright and cheery and web 1.0-esque! That make me even more suspicious…

After asking myself why in the name of Zeus would you name your company that, I had to google, too. From their site:

“Our name. A ‘tickle’ is a narrow channel which in our case is dark because it is surrounded by high hills. It is also the area in Griquet where we are located and as represented by the picture in our labels.”

But still. If I decided to name my company “Rear Channel” because of where I was located, tell me you wouldn’t think of something else…

I guess it’s memorable, though. Probably not going to forget that one for a while.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
