404 Tasting Notes
I don’t know what I was thinking. This smelled so good in the store – nutty, sweet, kind of like a slightly savory brittle – that I bought it, only for it to be totally disgusting when steeped. I don’t even know how to describe it, but something close to boiled peanuts and granola would have it. Shame on me for not getting a smaller amount to try before committing to 2oz.
A sad sipdown. This has been a consistently tasty all day tea. See, I’ve found that when I’m home I tend not to drink tea, which is kind of sad. So I’ve started making up large pots and working on them throughout the day when I’m off. I’m happier, there are no more caffeine withdrawal headaches, but unfortunately this leads to sipping down teas I really like. (Because if you’re going to make 1300ml of tea in one go, it had better be something you enjoy drinking.)
So, today is my last day with this one. Creamy and sweet with a hint of tartness from the blueberries. I wouldn’t say it screams “blueberry muffin” because the fruit flavor is a little generic for that, but it’s nice to sip on all day long.
