839 Tasting Notes
Right, I pulled my finger out and added the last three months’ of Monstrositea samples to my cupboard, in an effort to light a fire under myself and get through them. I’ve been so focused on sipping down the cupboard that I’ve been largely ignoring the monthly samples as they roll in and that just won’t do!
I went for this one first soon after filling the cupboard up, because the description intrigued me. As did the taste once I got to it! Intriguing and a little confusing… fresh minty but sweet fruity with a nice black base. Definitely one for someone with a more adventurous tea palate but I had a lot of fun with it.
You know what? This is actually TOO sweet. Whatever sweetness they’ve plied on here, it’s taken it way over the line. This is a candy drink, this isn’t a herbal/fruit infusion. Just settle down, T2. Seriously, they’re headed more and more in this direction lately. I went in the other day to try all the CHRISTMAS/December limited edition blends and as much as I love the butterfly designs and the beautiful tins, the teas themselves were too sickeningly sweet and made up of like twenty different ingredients. Take a fucking chill pill, T2, I’m pretty done with you lately.
And as a reward for hitting under 50 teas in the cupboard, I had a delicious mug of my heart’s blood, from what’s left of my dwindling stock.
Time to restock this, and maybe try a few other bits and bobs from Davids. Any USA or Canadian pals willing to be my tea mule and post some down to me? I’m happy to pay either in cash or in trade for Aussie teas! Hit me up via PM xx
And with the last glass from the 2L jug, Sunny’s all out! I can’t believe I’m under 50. I’m a girl on a mission. Nothing can stop me. I can’t even stop myself.
Sunny was great, definitely best iced or cold brewed, sweet and fruity and super enjoyable. But I’m hesitant to order from More Tea again, because I got three blends from them (as well as the beautiful but delicate glass tea bottle) and Sunny was the only one I liked—the other two blends were blerg. More Tea don’t sell samples so without being able to try before I buy, I don’t think I’ll be back. They didn’t even respond to my mail asking about samples. Sigh.
SERIOUSLY T2 WHY DID THIS GLORIOUS BEAST NOT GET ADDED TO THE STANDARD LINE. I’m still horrified. I finally deigned to open my precious saved box of this the other day (I really AM sipping down the cupboard, yikes!) and was a little worried that it wouldn’t be as great as I remembered (happens a bit).
Still fabulous and amazing and I want to never run out but I’m SAD BECAUSE ONE DAY I WILL.
Have already had this hot (YUM) and have a whole 2L cold brewed jug too.
