I got this as part of a swap from Jaime. I’m drawn to disturbingly unique blends, and this one was no exception. It combines one of the things I hate (cucumbers) to one of the things I adore (white tea). Other ingredients include carrot pieces (yet another loathing), safflowers, calendula flowers, and some unnamed natural flavor.

Like the artichoke tea I tried a couple of weeks ago, this one surprised me quite a bit. It tasted like – well – white tea with a carroty aftertaste. I’ve never had a problem with the taste of carrots, just the texture. As for cucumber? Couldn’t detect that, unless it was part of the whole vegetal component in the initial mouth-swish. I approved.

Bio

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
