Day 20 of the PostTea advent. I feel like this one was well placed, because a Yerba (or a Guayusa, or anything with energy giving qualities…) is exactly what I want today. I finished work on Friday, and since then I seem to have deteriorated into a limp, exhausted, slightly ill-feeling heap. It’s funny, I think, how you can keep going when you absolutely have to, but it’s all over the moment you get some time off.
Anyway, the tea. It’s Yerba. Walks like Yerba, talks like Yerba, tastes like Yerba. Is Yerba. It’s earthy, as you might expect. Very earthy. It also has a slight background smokiness. Otherwise, there’s nothing much to report here. I generally prefer these kinds of teas flavoured, because it makes them a little more palatable and generally more interesting, but straight is fine. Not exciting, but fine – as long as it does its job! I can imagine this one with some lemon, though…might have to try that!
