Tea #26 from Considering a new TTB
This seemed like such an interesting blend, but the balance of flavors ends up tasting like that cup of tea that I’ve left forgotten by my bedside for a few days, then accidentally take a drink of it in the middle of the night because I’m thirsty and it’s convenient. I’m sure we’ve all done that before, right? It doesn’t quite taste moldy, but has an off sort of flavor.
On the plus side, there is finally a Verdant blend that I’m not allergic to, this calls for a minor sort of celebration!
Tea #25 from Considering a new TTB
I haven’t had a chance to order from Lupicia yet so I’m always excited when one of their teas pop up in a TTB, but sadly I’m a bit on the fence about this tea. For some reason it reminds me of Peach Os and I never really was a fan of those. Peach seems to be a really hard flavor to reproduce in tea, I find that more often than not I’m just not quite satisfied with the flavor. I can only think of one or two peach teas that I would consider ordering again, which is unfortunate because I absolutely love peach.
I tried this hot, but I really think it would be much better cold steeped. I’ll have to settle for tossing this in the fridge and letting it chill for a few hours.
