Cold Brew Sipdown (1707)!
Oh, what’s this? Another Critical Role/Caleb Widowgast themed tea that I sipped on while watching Critical Role this week? It’s almost like there’s been a theme…
I find this one a bit more bland as a cold brew than it was hot, but the main flavours are definitely all still there. It’s got that soft mintiness that reminds me a little bit of a candy cane but married with some silky vanilla notes, a little fleeting butteriness, the semi-sweet nutty notes of both the rooibod and the almond flavouring, and just a tiny hint of something floral in the undertones.
Reflecting on it… this doesn’t really seem like the most thematically appropriate blend for Frumpkin who, in my mind, should be a ginger honey tea with maybe just a hint of maple. However, it’s definitely a very nice tasting tea and I love the way all the different flavours click together so harmoniously.
