Sipdown Theme #1: a Chai
I have so many chai tea variants in my tea cabinet right now that I will definitely need to work on some sipdown for this one this month. Other than that, on my breaks, I have been playing a new game that came out on switch today called ooblets. It is really cozy and great. Kind of like animal crossing or stardew Valley but with a simple card game thrown in the mix. Would highly recommend if you are into cozy switch games.
Tasting Note: I got this as a sample from deb. It surprised me. I didn’t think I would like a christmas, thanksgiving cranberry salad chai type tea and I was really wrong. It isn’t very strong hibiscus or cranberry so if that sort of tartness throws you off this will be ok. The spicing is good and isn’t overpowering but is still there. It smells like this cranberry christmas mead I bought from a local meadery in MN not too long ago and it really scratches that itch of having that again. I might change my mind on this tea in the future but I think it is certainly worth a try if you want some lighter christmas vibes in September.
