13 Tasting Notes
Sweet & tart to the same measure as rhubarb pie. Like having a morbidly obese Hawaiian man strum you a lovely serenade as gaggles of awful tourists caw on the beach around you. I hope they frickin’ choke on the pig at the luau tonight.
Unlike my father, this tea keeps it’s promises. The cherry, also unlike my father, is very present. The almond flavour is a great finishing note, the sweet flavour a perfect facsimile of the marzipan icing on the New Year’s Cake me and my mother ate in our little flat on New Year’s, 1986, knowing my father would never came back. We both knew it, we never said it. Words would’ve made it too real.
10.6/10 Would drink again.
Smokey, bitter, punchey. Probably what tea super badass samurai are drinking in Kurosawa movies.
