So I got this last week even though I wasn’t to ~ the episode ~ and thankfully even though there is an actual spoiler image on it, it’s oddly printed so I had no idea what it was even implying.
Until tonight. After I watched said episode. Then I understood.
when you find out how to get this tea (which is REALLY EASY and I feel dumb for not understanding) it suggests steeping in your own tears. Totally could have. btw I don’t think it’s possible to get this outside of the sample but I assume you can repeatedly get the sample since it let me add it to my cart again so I could get those great steeping notes.
Anyway the person who helped me out with getting this told me it was really good. It smells really good. But it’s super, super floral. I made it iced because I can’t be triflin’ with hot tea right now, plus hibiscus that’s warm is pretty meh.
So the hibiscus and rose petal are the strongest flavors, not sure if they really go together. For a bit there when I first tasted it, I was expecting someone to just pop in and yell THE LANNISTERS SEND THEIR REGARDS at me because even for someone who loves floral teas, it’s pretty overwhelming.
Since usually after the ice melts a good bit, iced teas start to taste better, I let it hang out. I could get a bit of the apple but definitely no blood orange.
It’s not that bad hibiscus wise. I can tolerate it without adding sweetener. I think maybe I’m losing the orange to the hibiscus, when I think about it, there’s a pretty similar flavor between blood orange and hibiscus.
I’m going to go lay down and cry now that I am finished with the glass. Although, I have an interview tomorrow FINALLY so cross your fingers!! And I will hopefully be over my GoT feels by then.
