I had this yesterday, and refrained from leaving a note because it tasted weird. I thought that maybe the genmaicha I’d had previously had tainted the gravity steeper and/or mug I was using. So I scrubbed both out and left them to dry.
Today, I used my strainer ball and a totally different mug on this mix. As a control. For science.
And the conclusion is: this is a totally weird mix that tastes nothing like cranberry, nuts, or basically anything resembling food.
It’s like the sugary byproduct of some kind of food manufacturing process. Like maybe if you went to a Fruit Roll-Up factory and licked the floor.
So I tried icing it. If you ice it, you can kind of taste the nuts. I guess. But it’s still not great.
I daresay it’s… not my cup of tea.
