On my second mug today and this one isn’t tickling my tastebuds as much as I had hoped it would considering the exciting ingredients in here. Pineapple in here too? Funny how Mother Nature just seems to know that whoops, it’s now officially September, let’s drop that temperature. Since yesterday it’s been cloudier and cooler than the weather forecasts, and it’s that kind of cool air that tells you, “Yes, I’m Autumn, I’m coming for ALL OF YOU.”
Which is why I thought I’d finally bust this out one. I actually can’t taste the pineapple, at least in the second cup. The first had a smidgen of sweetness presumably from the pineapple, but this second one is heavier on the base and spices. The two main spice stars here are ginger and cinnamon. Allspice and nutmeg linger a long time after, and barely so.
Alrighty, after this second mug has cooled substantially, I am picking up on the pineapple more.
The base is mild with minimal vegetal bite. I think I might as well finish off my sample packet today and make a third and final mug. My sipdown forecast sees this gone from my cupboard by the end of the day.
