The last of my gingerbread this morning… sipdown
I’m enjoying this one after waking up with the munchkin. He’s finally starting to sleep through most of the night already! 8 hours in a row the last two nights! That’s one of those things where you wake up and you almost have to check he’s still breathing ‘cause there’s no way that it’s possible he slept that well!
Anyways, I’m not sure if maybe I oversteeped it or what, but I’m not enjoying this one as much as I thought I would this morning. It’s okay, but it’s not as nice as it was the first time. Or maybe I was just craving something else and now my tastebuds are confused…?
Either way, Glad I got to have this tea, but not sure if I’d get this one again unless my plan was to mix it with something.
I’m really loving this one. The gingerbread flavour is so good. I didn’t follow the steeping instructions completely (only steeped 3mins instead of 5mins) and I’m really glad I didn’t do the 5mins. I think that would have been too much. But either way, I really like the flavour of this one. It’s so nice! It makes me want to eat a gingerbread cookie!
Milk and a tiny bit of rock sugar added to taste.
I didn’t really care for this blend. It seemed very unbalanced, which could happen in a smaller sample size. I found the ginger overpowering and the green tea flavor had a strange and almost bitter-y aftertaste. It wasn’t terrible, but I definitely won’t be purchasing.
Monthly TTB club.
After a rocky start, I’ve actually started developing a fondness for earl grey’s, so I decided to give this a shot even though I tend not to like rooibos. It has a really unusual taste. The bergamot does seem to temper the medicinal flavor of rooibos, but it almost clashes with it at the same time. It ends up with a sharpness I tend to associate with menthol and a floral aftertaste. This tea tastes dissonant to me, but I sort of like it anyway? I don’t know exactly what to think. I’ll definitely finish this cup, which is better than I expected with the rooibos, and I may even have a second at some point to try and make up my mind about it. If you’re an adventurous taster, or a fan of rooibos or earl gray, you might want to give this a try. It’ so different.
Flavors: Floral, Menthol
