So I think I might have a job! Yay! I have to call back and let her know that I want it but yay! I’ll be a receptionist at a vet clinic and then move to tech when I enter a vet tech program. They didn’t have room for an assistant at my level (which is a lot of large animal, but not companion animal experience). I’ve been college (and graduated) once and I said I didn’t want to go back but I think I’ll really like it!
Anyway, on to the tea! I cold brewed this, which may have been a mistake with the hibiscus but I won’t know until I try it hot. New tool for cold brewing! I’m using one of DAVIDsTEAs plastic bombillas. I usually cold brew in a glass travel mug, which has a strainer but it sucks. So, now I can use the bombilla and not have to transfer the tea over. Pretty cool! I’m also looking forward to using it with mate, but I think I still want their ceramic gourd. I just feel like I would probably wind up killing any natural gourd I had.
So I get a lot of cherry and apple when I sip this. Maybe a hint of watermelon. Not a whole lot of white tea, but as others have said there doesn’t seem to be much in the mix. I’m almost considering using some plain white peony and blending bits of this in so I get some more actual tea flavor. It’s alright, a little tart on its own. I think if I cold brew again I might try some agave.
