As I need to keep up with the date, I decided to brew two CuppaGeek teas. I have to admit, i was bit cheating today as well, as I needed a caffeine-free blend as… it’s evening again.
Anyway to the tea… I was quite afraid being hibiscus heavy (so, maybe a cup for Mastress Alita?) The brew is having deep red colour and aroma? I think I notice cherries and strawberries; that is probably the expected flavour profile. Yep, it’s pretty strawberry/cherry forward in taste as well. Hibiscus was strong too. !EXCEPTION AHEAD! I did an exception and added a teaspoon of sugar. I think I get more from cherry.
Now I am confused. My blend is having a lemongrass in. Fruit salad lemonade doesn’t contain lemongrass on CuppaGeek website. Other tea called “something” (scratched original label by tearing off the silver one) lemonade is Rose Lemonade and that one includes the lemongrass, but I don’t think it’s only rose and lemongrass. The image on the label looks like Fruit salad lemonade one. Mislabeled? No, taste is indeed bit more on cherry than on rose. Holds on rating
Song pairing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4BBQ6Pni7c — you never heard about Publisher? Well, I found him approx. 6 years ago. I was browsing through Jamendo for some free songs, easy-listening genre. I listened to one, two (of four) from him and I knew I wanted to download them. So I did. And to be honest, I prefer bit more his Never Wanted track :) .
PS: Those silver labels aren’t scratchable, are they?
