Big ups to Rosehips for sending this to me! I am so happy to have traded with you! (squeeze)

At first sniff, this is kind of… vegetal? I think that’s the carrot. It’s a spring soil kind of scent.

But then you get in there and… damn. She (I think Rosehips is female? — the real name is unisex) wasn’t moved by this, but I adore it. It’s a creamy, carrot-y, slightly coconut flavor. Kind of like a carrot cake with a few coconut sprinkles on top. I am totally getting it.

I think that the nut contributes to the cream flavor (?), but it might be superfluous. I don’t really pick up a lot of it on its own. I specifically made sure I had one of the blend’s nuts in this first scoop. NO MATTER.

There is still a slight grassy undertone to this, and I’m not quite sure where it’s coming from, but it’s not enough for me to dislike this blend. I’m totally on board here. I’m going to be a sad panda when the sample is gone.

Flavors: Carrot, Coconut, Cream, Dirt, Grass, Vanilla

Rosehips

(Indeed I am female, unisex name not withstanding). I’m glad you’ve had such a positive experience with this! I’ll have to give it another chance.

Super Starling!

I figured “rosehips” sounded a little feminine. But who am I to enforce the gender binary? YOU DO YOU.

Bio

I’m a graphic designer, illustrator, crafter, geek, and recent tea convert. I love teas that are sweet, zippy (caffeinated), and hopeful. In concrete terms, that’s usually black or maté tea, with some chocolate/vanilla/berry/nut in there somewhere. If it gives me the dessert experience without the calories, my heart soars.

I’m not a big fan of mint, grass (“yogi farts”), sours, or bitterness.

I’m into the idea of trading to try new things. If there’s something in my cupboard you’d like to try, send me a message!
