Shae’s ADVENT CALENDAR, December 14
I had to write Shae in the morning to find out what is this tea actually! Label says strawberry and there is no strawberry in. Had no idea how it could be called.
Two exams written, two course credits granted. We will see how today ones will develop. I get caught on trap question, so I know there is a mistake. And there (on other one) too. Oh well. So tired.
So, I know what is this tea supposed to be, so I brought a big mug and decided to brew it in. Steeped for 3-4 minutes, not sure; but less than recommended, as I thought it is “done”.
Roswell Strange said it is bit on “European” flavour profile and more-less agree with her. But I don’t get any strawberries, rather some generic fruity profile with hints of papaya in. It is interesting to see black/green blend with probably mellowed the bold black base, but it was somehow… poor. Maybe I have expecting more fruity note; or just somehow fresher taste, but it was just a fruity tea with base, but it was on the boring side and I finished the mug without much to remember.
I think I had better fruity blends, though usually with hibiscus, but maybe I kind of miss it here?
