My tea twin, Roswell Strange, who has greatly surpassed me in all things tea knows two things about me: (1) I don’t really like mates and pu’erhs and (2) I will try almost anything someone shares with me at least once. So in December when she exploded my cupboard, there were some mate and pu’erh samples snuck in…much to my dismay. However, tastes change and if you don’t try you don’t know so thank you Roswell Strange for forcing me out of my comfort zone and having me explore all the things!
Alright, that was basically ramping up to I drank this…and I don’t like it. I was getting real sleepy around 3 and wanted to get some work done so I figured mate would be a great caffeine boost. Alas, this tastes like mate which to me is like the wet ground of a rain forest. Well, what I imagine the wet ground of a rain forest would be. And, it is a touch soapy. Really not for me.
