Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge National Kiss a Ginger Day / National Marzipan Day Tea #3
From last night! This particular tea is from Mastress Alita – thanks very much! It took a while to write a note for this as I’ve had many iterations of this tea in the past. Somehow some of these blends sometimes seem like there is ONE piece of rosehip… like it imparts just enough tanginess for me to notice. (Though it isn’t in the ingredients list, I swear I can see a rosehip in the pouch.) Or maybe it’s just an overabundance of the apple in the scoop I brewed, creating that tanginess. If anything, this cup wasn’t the bright pink from the beetroot that it normally is, so that is also unusual. So not just my tastebuds changing. Otherwise, it’s usually sweet almond with a hint of apple. So not quite what I remember but I don’t think I’ll ever get over this unique blend. I’m glad a few shops sell it.
