I had one rollercoaster of a day. Barely slept last night worrying about this morning’s presentation and gathering the courage to talk to my supervisor about one of my papers. Then ended up crying in front of her because my mom’s been ill, so after the school day was over, I thought I should get the new teas from David’s (and grab a bento box somewhere), and that’s what I did!
I passed on the Coffee Cake because it smells too similar to Red Velvet Cake, which is way too sweet. Some Steepsters are saying that this one smells like RVC too but I don’t get that. This smells like candied ginger and spices to me. It does have a cakey note too but it’s different to me. Crazy I bought a rooibos, eh? I normally don’t like them.
But this is nice! I feel like one of the odd ones out since most don’t seem to care for it. I normally despise rooibos for the usual reason: it tastes like wood. But here, the spices really mask that note, and bring a depth to the flavours without making it weird.
Would I buy more than the 10g? Not sure yet, but it won’t be that hard to finish, that’s for sure.
