This one took me on a taste journey. I kept taking sip after sip, the flavor strongly reminding me of something but I didn’t know what. It was driving me crazy, so I set it down and walked away.
The flavor reminded me of a specific mouthfeel, gritty but kind of cakey, but not really. It brought up the memory of some…woman in my life making some kind of bars. Not chocolate chip cookies, but something that did have chocolate in it, and chocolate I felt was unneeded.
I read the reviews and went back to the tea after it had cooled and kept sipping. Some kind of spice dessert bar…gah! What the hell is it?
Then I read a review mentioning someone putting coconut milk in it and it was like my head exploded.
Hello Dolly squares. This tea tastes like my mother-in-law’s Hello Dolly squares in a watered down form. I need to make this into a latte with coconut milk for my wife and see if she agrees.
It reminded me of Carlos and Cecil. Is Carlos into Cecil? It was months upon months of wondering and trying to figure it out when ALL OF A SUDDEN things changed and the internet exploded over it.
So while the tea itself doesn’t make me think of Carlos, the first time I had it certainly always will.
