Very accurate description, but I think it was a bit too much for me. I didn’t really notice any mint, just strong grapefruit.

This is quite tasty!!
I’m enjoying the slight buzz from eucalyptus, along with a sort of tongue numbing effect, in a pleasant way that reminds me of the drink. It really does taste similar to a mojito. That airy effect from Graveyard Mist (52teas) is there as well. Lots going on here, which pleases me! It is clear that a lot of work and thought went into crafting the mix of flavours.
Not 100% spot on Grapefruit Mojito because that would really call for fresh mint leaves and well I know that isn’t possible. The grapefruit isn’t quite what I imagined either although I can’t pinpoint why, but I would definitely say it is very much there… a tad mild, which is ok by me, I fully expected the mint to take over.
oh. Also, I added a smidge of sugar, since mojitos are quite sweet. It really brought out the flavours more, and helped them gel. Didn’t need much, but that tiny bit was helpful.
Altogether, the blend is well executed and unique. I bought another sampler for a friend this Christmas and I’m glad I did, I think she’ll love it!
On a more personal note, it’s Christmas Eve and I’m feeling quite all over the place. Emotions are high for a bunch of reasons; Holiday demands being one of them, of course :)
Then there is the fact that I’m on different meds now for adhd. they don’t address my anxiety issues directly, not like my previous meds, and the dosage needs to be upped… a lot… which my doc won’t do til I meet with the specialist she plans to refer me to(he’s on vacay til Feb). In the meantime I forget alot of stuff, constantly. and I worry about everything. I’m mostly ok with that for now, since the previous meds turned off my ability to get excited about things, or appreciate them properly. I feel like it affected my empathy as well, so had to use my logic in order to not be an arse to people. My logic always didn’t come through, nothing is perfect right? Sorry for the ramble. Just felt like getting things off my chest! So yeah, all of that and residual work stress, Nothing feels “right” these days. Like I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop, or… well that is another story haha.
Oh. Also. My aunt is unwell, this may be her last Christmas, so we all had to get the flu shot for the sake of herd immunity. First time ever… as I’m seriously not a fan. I always planned to get it if and when I needed it and not a day sooner. For some reason having flu vaccine in me is quite creepy, yet I have no problem with other ones. Perhaps because the flu version is annual? I dunno.
Anyhow. I’m grateful for a lot of things in my life, so am trying to focus on that. I’m headed out to Christmas Eve dinner now. Happy Hannukah and Merry Christmas/Kwanzaa to those who celebrate!
