I received this as a free bag with purchase during a promo. I should have just left it for someone else to have. Even the dry leaf smelled so off putting — like bad milk chocolate — sour almost. Yes, I smelled coconut and Cinammon but the acrid chocolate smell was prevalent.
I finally forced myself to have a cup to satisfy a craving for something I couldn’t put my finger on. I looked at my cupboard and wanted nothing (well, really, I wanted a Starbucks’ tall salted caramel mocha with whipped cream and sprinkles) so I sighed and decided it was time to stop avoiding this bag.
You know, " #%^} or get off the pot", right?
It brewed orangey brown, had a ton of floaties, like A TON and I couldn’t make myself do it. I didn’t even waste my yummy creamer on it, I took a tiny sip and dumped it. The only thing that tasted worse to me was a sort of Tulsi chai I got a sample from someone — won’t name names :)
THis stormy night is the stuff nightmares are made of. Sorry, DAVID, I’m a fan overall, but this one needs to go away.
