Well I am finally back in my home (as opposed to my sister’s apartment), unpacked and settled. I brewed this up in a midst of unpacking, doing laundry, and preparing for school (i.e. printing any available syllabuses/powerpoints and organizing my binder). Now, I just need to make my calendar for the semester, fill in my agenda with my assignments, and write my important dates list. If only my professors were as efficient as me seeing as the links for 3/7 courses aren’t even active yet :(. Oh well, I will get down what I can. Then tomorrow I just need to worry about doing the groceries and I can relax the rest of the time (and drink tea :P).
Anyways, as for the tea, this is not really my favourite of the Twinnings that I have tried. It may be my brewing as it was left slightly longer than the 3 minutes I intended to brew it for, but not too long. I am getting some tartness and then a whole bunch of raspberry. Alas, it is not just the berry flavor as there is a herbal note lining the sip that is more leafy/vegetal that is really taking away from the taste as a whole. Also, no dragonfruit to be found. In fairness, that is a very subtle fruit flavor to begin with so I’d imagine it is a hard one to capture alone and yet they tried pairing it with the much bolder raspberry. All in all, this just isn’t a success and I am happy it is merely the one teabag that I picked up from the shop while I was in London.
Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Drying, Hibiscus, Raspberry
