I got this from Micah in a tea swap, and I’m not really sure what to say about it.

It was very bland.

I had enough to try a couple of cups, and I did one at the recommended 195F and one at a lower temperature of 165F. I tried resteeping for longer times to no effect. Both of them tasted like pallid reflections of what the I think the tea is supposed to taste like. Barely-there floral, washed out sweetness.

Ultimately, it felt like someone had Scrooged the flavoring in the tea. It felt like I was drinking hot water.

I’m sorry, I can type Scrooge without thinking about Scrooge McDuck. And then I think of Duck Tales. Life is like a hurricaaaaane, here in Duckberg.

And before I go off on a very distracting youtube search for my favorite cartoon theme songs, I will say that I can’t recommend this tea.

OOOH, CHIP N’ DALE RESCUE RANGERS!

I now have a mashup of Chip&Dale/Duck Tales/Talespin theme songs running through my head. It’s very “Chi-Chi-Chi-Chip and Dale! Ohh-e-oh (…duckberg!) Ohh-e-oh (…when there’s danger!)” Those were my FAVORITES (post TMNT of course). Thank you for that :)

Oh my god. Someone must make a formal mash-up of these if it hasn’t been done already. Immediately!
