I can’t sleep so I am drinking tea and listening to a playlist comprised of songs I used to love. Like it’s seriously playing O-Town right now.
This tea tastes like an orange scone, or a scone and orange juice. It’s kind of amazing. I’m not sure if that’s because I want a scone or what, but I really think it’s the tea.
It’s got this breadlike flavor, something just baked, just sweet enough, and it’s just screaming scone. Well not screaming, because it’s just this taste that makes you think about it.
Before brewing I smelled the tea in the bag and it smelled really peppery, like I can’t believe this is the same tea. They are also really pretty leaves, pretty sure I said something like “how curly!” while measuring it.
Seriously all these Teavivre samples I’ve tried have had me branching out into more teas that aren’t flavored – a couple months ago I probably would not have gotten kukicha if given a menu filled with flavored teas like I did on Saturday. (And a combination of them and Steepster caused me to have to buy a gaiwan WITH PANDAS ON IT so I am waiting impatiently for that.)
