Adventaggedon Day 19 – Tea 6/6!
Made a mini teapot of this while reading some manga this late morning and it was pretty good! Not the best rooibos in the world, but after a few days of more “meh” Mariage Freres tea blend it was nice to have something that felt different, distinct and pretty tasty.
It’s a tiny bit medicinal from the rooibos, but the deeped red fruit notes of the rooibos and slight honeyed graham qualities seemed to really compliment the sweet strawberry notes of the tea and perfumed floral undertones. I like the strawberry here because it’s a sort of “raw” strawberry without a lot of polish to it. By that I mean it’s not really juicy/jammy or candied, but also not really a tart or puckery strawberry either. It’s sort of just like the essence of a strawberry stripped down and at its most raw.
Hard to explain – but a nice taste, and a pleasant change up from other strawberry flavours…
