Well to finish the disappointing trifecta of a night, of course I taste nothing but honeybush in this tea.
I bought a set of 5 James Bond movies, used for like $30 on Amazon, THROUGH Amazon at that, not another seller. Here I am looking forward to watching Tomorrow Never Dies…and the menu is skipping. I take it out and clean it…only for it to not be able to read the disc completely.
I made popcorn to go with this and it tastes like stale olive oil. I JUST used this same olive oil days ago in cooking so what gives.
And then finally, this tea. I know, maybe it’s just in need of a bit more time, but I made an entire teapot for movie watching, and all I can taste is honeybush. I tried sweetening it, and it improved nothing. So I stuck the infuser basket back in. It steeped for a long time while I was busy making terrible popcorn.
I’m guessing maybe this bag was actually from a reblend and not from when it first came out? Didn’t bother to think of that. Well, in that case, I wish I had only made a cup first :/
I even tried putting the basket back in the tea pot and letting it sit for nearly 20 minutes more and there’s a little chocolatey taste now, but I will have to try again far later I think.
And now I’m going to go sulk some more.
