drank Totem by Capital Teas
1195 tasting notes

Back in December, the Yelp elite event of the month was dinner at a pop-up restaurant followed by Totem. Cirque du Soleil, FOR FREE. I was all over that as I’ve never seen a Cirque show. It was Totem! So when Amy oh offered me this in a swap I had to have it.

This tea is nothing like Totem in my opinion. Then again I have no idea what the point of Totem was other than to make me feel inferior and useless as I will never ever be able to flip bowls on gigantic unicycles or roller skate around in a 1.5 meter wide platform.

Hot, this is not so great. It really has no flavor to it other than that it’s tart. I let it cool off and it was WAY better to have iced. It was still tart but it actually had flavors to it, mostly the papaya at this point.

I really am not a fan of green/mate blends and I’m glad this actually worked out with Capital Teas’ instructions.
