Sipdown! (23 | 297)
This came in the B&B subscription last month, and it’s just not a favorite for me.
Oddly, the dry leaf smells like passionfruit curd somehow? Even though there’s nothing remotely fruity mentioned in the description or ingredients. No idea what’s going on with my nose there…
Steeped up, it tastes a bit cakey, lightly custardy with a butterscotch finish. But then there’s the anise, which kind of takes over and makes everything taste like licorice. I actually like licorice, but I don’t really understand it here… Seems like a treacle sponge is a steamed pudding with treacle and custard, so doesn’t seem like licorice comes into play.
Oh well. It certainly doesn’t taste like passionfruit curd, ha ha! :P
