From the November subscription box.
I reorganized the counter in my tea nook a bit last night, and put all of my subscription teas in their own little box so I can be sure to drink them in a timely manner! I also ordered a couple of acrylic divided bins to use instead of my current cardboard boxes with the flaps cut off… I’m also planning to do some acrylic bins in the cupboard to separate different types of tea and such, but haven’t decided on those yet. Anyway, getting off topic! This is the first tea I’m trying from the November subscription, as the combination of raspberry and marshmallow sounded so delicious.
Unfortunately, I’m not getting much raspberry, vanilla, or marshmallow in this pot. The base is a mix of green and roasted yerba maté, and I’m mostly just getting the grassy and herbaceous green flavor here. And I do like green maté, so it’s not bad, I’m just only getting a faint hint of raspberry and maybe a touch of marshmallow at the end of the sip. I can taste the roasted maté as well, it adds a nice hojicha-like note and roasty richness.
I wonder if I didn’t get enough raspberry in my scoop, although there wasn’t a ton in the packet and it was mostly small pieces. I’ll have to give this one another try or two before I assign it a rating!
ETA: I also added a Subscription tab to my tea spreadsheet! Yay!
