So, I started out tonight thinking it would be a big party night. You know, its Halloween, Friday night, college campus. But, one thing led to another; I didn’t want to go out alone and all my friends were away (ones in vegas, lucky dog) or have midterms to study for, so its just me, allllll alonnneeee…Sips tea…..
Living in Indiana, corn capital USA (seriously, everything here is SURROUNDED by cornfields) I have grown up eating a lot of it. Corn chowder, corn on the cob, and my favorite, fresh corn bread. YUM. So you you could say I know all the different tastes of corn.
This tea is interesting. For some reason I was expecting this tea to taste more buttery and sweet, like cornbread, but it has more of the vegetable notes of corn, not the sweet. It reminds me of stove top corn; you know, the stuff your mom serves you that is a bit mushy and watery, but oh so warm and delicious; the more savory side of corn. After getting over the surprise, I did enjoy the tea. Brews well a second and third time; not watery at ALL.
I am more of a dessert tea person, so I don’t think this will be a re-order, but not because of the quality of the tea, just because of my own personal preference.
