921 Tasting Notes
Tea #4 in the Monstrositea April box. I was pleasantly surprised by this one; after reading it was basically just lemon balm and rosemary I wasn’t expecting much. I am starting to learn better than that with these awesome boxes. Maybe next month I won’t be such a doubting Thomas…
Because this was tasty and zingy. Man those two flavours pack a real punch!
Yeah… you know what? I’m changing my rating down on this. I’m not as impressed as I must have been previously.
It could be the cold brew talking, though.
No more cold brewing for you, Buttered Rum. I’ll drink the last of my supply warm, and with milk and sugar. But that suits me fine because WINTER IS COMING.
With not a great deal of this precious nostalgia left, I tried tonight with some milk and sugar added to try to reach those really creamy notes. It felt super weird adding milk and sugar to a peppermint tea. I suppose it worked? Ooh that minty oil slick sure is something, and with milk in the mix it’s even more pronounced!
One more cup of this and I’ll be all sipped down :(
Note: does not resteep well :(
More fun note: just paid for my first Butiki order eeeeeee ALL THE BUTIKI let’s not discuss how much money I just spent, I am a responsible adult
Second steep of today’s leaves just as strong (?). Third steep I think there’s still some flavour in there but I’d really need some of the first and second steeps to compare, and I drank ’em all up already.
Definitely worth one resteep to get the most out of this blend as you can.
P.S. the burger was delicious.
I was expecting the taste of this tea to be a lot more threatening than it actually is, so that’s a boon. To me it’s got quite a bland taste but I suppose there is enough flavour in there from the lemon and rooibos that it has SOMETHING.
I can see how this would serve well as a tea for those in a detox mood! After my weird eating yesterday it’s bringing a mental comfort to me, I suppose. But I’m about to go put a burger on it SO………
