Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge – July Tea #8 -A tea you’ve forgotten about
BUT how do I KNOW if I have forgotten about a tea unless I haven’t actually forgotten a tea? I’d have to randomly stumble upon it while looking for another tea. I think I’m just very aware of my tea collection at this point, regardless of its vast ridiculousness… so I don’t think I forget about a tea TOO often. But this is a sipdown and I haven’t written a first note for it yet, so I’ll go with this one. I “forgot” to write a note for it? It’s a good idea for a prompt anyway… I only had a bit of this in one of the David’s samplers I bought a while ago. Let’s just say this tea was not the reason I bought the sampler. This is one of those David’s blends that SAYS there is white tea in it, but it’s probably a very small amount because it looks like mostly other goodies. I have never had fresh pom before, so to me this blend just tastes like tartness. And probably pom flavoring if I’m stretching my imagination. Not bad, but more white tea would have kept it interesting and not tart overload, where I feel like hibiscus is doing most of the job for the pom. There is a syrupy quality that keeps it pleasant enough for a couple cups, but grateful when it’s a sipdown.
