Adventaggedon Day 2: Tea 4/7
I was very excited to see this in the advent because I’ve been casually eyeing it up for almost a year now. Kusmi started advertising this blend at the start of the year on IG with these very luxurious product photos of the tin next to giant stacks of syrupy pancakes.
So, imagine my surprise when it turned out to be a red fruit blend.
I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised because if there’s anything I sort of think of as a “Kusmi Style” tea it’s red fruit flavours or chai. I guess I was just expecting like a maple flavour or something more cake-y!? There’s apparently a biscuit flavouring in the tea but I really only tasted a thick syrup red fruit jelly type of note. It was tasty and I almost wished I’d tried cold steeping because the profile felt like it would have suited that well – but it was just wildly not what I was expecting and so that was a bummer.
