2 Tasting Notes
I just. No. Nope. Not happening. At least, not for me? Short steeps, long steeps, different temperatures in water … nothing works. It has a kind of odd play-doh / scratch-n-sniff sticker smell, and on a good day I can get a tiny bit of creamy, vegetal note on the back of my tongue, which, hey, oolong, nice of you to join us, but for the most part, this tea tastes like nothing. I tried, but it’s just not gonna work out between us.
Hands down, one of my favourite herbals ever. It feels like I’ve been waiting for this tea to come back in stock for forever, and now that it has, well. Excuse me, out of my way, I need to hoard.
Dry, there’s this beautifully creamy, vegetal, vanilla-y smell. And brewed? There’s still all of that cream and vanilla, but there’s also a swampy, green kind of taste that reminds me, without fail, of the pennywort juice I used to drink while growing up. Come be in my cupboard, Mulberry Magic. Let us never be parted again.
