drank Summer Breeze by Teaopia
1199 tasting notes

I was drinking this yesterday afternoon but it was so terrible I only drank a quarter of my glass before heading off to the Ritz (ohmygod). They just kept pouring wine. I had to hang around there for like an hour longer before I felt ok to drive except then I was super sleepy! Since I was there and it was free I tried oysters and seabass tartare but I was not a fan of either.

And I found people who really want to do fancy afternoon tea with me there! So now I just need almost $60 to pull that one off. Jeez. A bunch of Yelp people are going to Fogo de Chao tonight and that’s $50 a person and I had been like that’s two weeks of groceries. But I guess since I’ve been there a couple times and like tea more than hot Brazilian men bringing me steak (okay when you say it that way, momo…) and it’s an experience! I guess it’s time to save up.

Ok back to this terrible tea. I have no idea why I bought it other than ooh green rooibos, cool name, might be good iced tea.

I was excited to see pear. Then I saw raisin. And carrot. And lemongrass. No this stuff can’t possibly work together, but I’m going to try it anyway.

Ugh it was just awful. I should have probably sweetened it, but you would have though the fruit pieces might have done that even just slightly.

Maybe cold brewing will make it better.

eww! i could see pear and lemongrass working ok together.. or even carrot and lemongrass… but raising!? .. i picture raisin with figs, and cocoa and heavy ingredients.. not something as light as this one seems to be meant to be!

momo

Yeah if they did just fig or just raisin, and left out the carrot entirely I think this would be so much better. All it tasted like was them but blandly.

Fjellrev

Yeah, afternoon tea is priiiiicey. I dropped $60 on the same thing last summer and while it was an interesting experiencing, I honestly don’t think it’s worth the money.

momo

I don’t have a problem spending money on having an experience. It’s likely to be just once and why not. It’s something I want to do, and a couple people I know have also really wanted to so I’m really excited to be able to share it like that.

Fjellrev

Oh yeah for sure. I’m glad I did it but wouldn’t do it again.
