#adventageddon Day 11 – 1/5
I was skeptical about this tea when I saw it today; a green tea with kiwi, cucumber and apple!? What a weird selection for an advent calendar – that flavour profile feels so summery, and I couldn’t picture kiwi and cucumber going together. I had to wonder if this was maybe one of those cases where DF had excess inventory of a summer tea that flopped and they needed to use it up…
However, it was REALLY good! My sense of taste was a bit dull/muted all day today because of the cold I’m getting but I still found this cup really flavourful. It wasn’t really all that cucumber tasting, but there was a really sweet and juicy mix of kiwi and fresh green apple notes, with a bit of a crispness. It reminded me a lot of DT’s now long retired blend Kiwi’s Big Adventure – but more appley. I like the kiwi/apple combo a lot, actually!
So, I was really taken aback by this one – but it was a highlight of my morning and it did make me pretty happy!
