Ok, so I think it’s official: I’m not going to be restocking this tea. I think I gave it a fair shake, but in the spirit of continued fairness, I’m not exactly a huge fan of cranberry flavoured things, so I shouldn’t be altogether surprised that this tea doesn’t ultimately cut it for me. Like, it’s not as though I have all these ideas as to how this tea could be made better-I somehow imagined this tea having more of a candied almond taste, sort of like amaretto or something like that, but nothing in the description should have led me to conclude that-I just pretty much decided for no reason that it ought to be the case and it just wasn’t. Or maybe I imagined it would taste sort of like how cranberry-scented bath products smell around Christmas time, and that wasn’t the case, either. I actually made a pretty decent dent in this tin though, and so am pleased to donate the rest to a cranberry-loving home. Having said all of that, I’m not appalled by this tea or anything, and am just fine finishing what’s in my timolino. it really does feel like a “no nonsense” tea to me, perhaps because of the tartness, and a no-nonsense tea was sort of what I was after this morning.
