Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Saturday, August 21st: World Honey Bee Day Tea #1

I started early yesterday with the first steep of this one!   Really I wish this were a sipdown as I am NOT a fan of B&B’s bee pollen that they use in their tea.  Or probably any bee pollen.  The bee pollen just takes over from any of these other better ingredients.  But hey, an excuse to steep up a cup for Bee Day. Almost finished with this sample though.

300/365

It was a bit of a surprise when I noticed I’d reached 300! I’m surprised how quickly time has passed this year. This one isn’t particularly significant, except in that it’s the perfect choice for a Friday. This is part of Bird & Blend’s store blends collection, and is the tea for Manchester, being a blend of honeybush, yerba mate, chamomile, bee pollen, and lemon. This isn’t a combination I’ve ever come across before, but it sums up what I need today pretty perfectly; energy, and relaxation!

Yerba and chamomile seem an odd pairing, but they actually work together reasonably well. There’s an obvious harmony between the chamomile, honeybush and bee pollen, and lemon fits in pretty well with that flavour profile as well. In practice, I couldn’t really taste any lemon – I mostly get honey, but something beyond that also. Something less sweet, more floral, perhaps even a little bitter? It’s a hard one to describe! The yerba is a little jarring, and seems to heighten the bitterness to a certain extent, but I actually don’t mind the combination as much as I thought I would.

My only real complaint about this one is that it’s a little powdery, and the bee pollen has a tendency to sink to the bottom. It’s enjoyable, though, and certainly an unusual blend! I’ve not tried anything quite like this before, but I’d happily drink it again!
