Sipdown (315)

For some reason, I felt I needed a third tea while I enjoyed the Game of Thrones episode of Geek Steep. This is another gift from Roswell Strange (thank you!) but I pulled it out because I wanted a “red” tea since I knew they discussed the Red Wedding from earlier conversations with Ros. This is a rooibos tea, aka red tea, called Red Floral Tea. I felt this fitting because not only is it red, but florals in Game of Thrones is related to the Tyrells. Because of that, “Red Floral” had me thinking of Olenna Tyrell who is known for committing one of the most long-awaited murders in the show. And she does it in such an amazing way that really gives the fans what they have wanted for seasons.

Unfortunately, as much as I love Olenna, I did not love this tea too much. I maybe didn’t expect to overly like it because like Highgarden, it boasts floral flavors and those are not normally what I want to drink. When I drink this, I get a lot of the rooibos base, which for some reason is coming off with that weird lotion-y vibe that rancid coconut can have. Lotion-y rooibos and then sweet berry. And flowers. Touch of lavender soap underlying everything. Maybe that’s why I get lotion? Soap + floral + something else is reading lotion in my head.

Ultimately I don’t personally like this, but despite my description above which makes this sound terrible, its an alright cup. The berry notes are stronger than I give them credit for and while they aren’t the best berry notes in a tea by far, they help this tea out a bit.

Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me but also thank you for providing the entertainment I enjoyed while I drank it!

Silent Kettle

Ou! Lotion, soap and rancid coconut do not sound like pleasant flavours in tea! I also need to check out Geek Steep! :)

VariaTEA

I definitely recommend geek steep and like I said, this tea isn’t as bad as my description may imply but floral teas just aren’t a favorite of mine to begin with

Cold Brew Sipdown (1602)!

A bit sad to have finished this one off since the combination of soothing fresh lavender with red berries is just lovely. However, I have Geek + Tea’s Hagrid themed blend which, as I was drinking the last of this tea, I realized is very similar. So, that definitely softened the blow.
