Bird & Blend Advent Day 18 (18-December 2020)
Yay! I’ve had this one sitting in my online cart for a while, just waiting for an opportunity to try it first!
I feel like this is a great creamy peppermint tea. The peppermint is mellowed out for a delicious creaminess that makes it just perfect — still cooling, but not so in-your-face.
The creaminess is almost candy-cane like, but not actually because there’s no cloying sweetness, which is just delightful. The cacao I get just sense a very subtle hint of it somewhere in the mix, but I’m sure it’s helping to mellow the peppermint and add creaminess, which is always appreciated.
I’ll just add that there’s a hint of pineapple in the background as it cools. I’ve had that with a flavoured oolong many years ago, but I can’t recall which one now.
I’ve saved our sachets for a re-steep, so I’m excited to see how it’ll hold up.
