Sipdown (318)

When I did my inventory, this was one of 5 teas from 2016 aka one of my oldest teas. 4/5 of the teas had best before dates and of the 4 dates, this was the one that had the earliest best before of August 2018. So, it went on my list of teas to drink.

This evening I decided I wanted a latte and I honestly believed this would have coffee beans and have that sort of chocolate or vanilla coffee profile. I guess I thought it was named “Night Owl” because it helped keep you up at night. However, this actually is a mix of black tea, elderberries, hibiscus, and raisin. Honestly that could explain why I haven’t reached for it all these years. Nothing in that ingredient list is particularly appealing on its on so as a combination, its just a mix of meh,

I went in not expecting much and I came out not really sold on it. It is potpourri like because there is a floral/dry that pops up mid-sip and follows through into the aftertaste. I do get some raisin if I look past the astringency and a dark berry kind of not but honestly, it’s a mediocre black tea at best.

Maybe owls eat elderberries and raisins? When they’re not eating rodents?

I was thinking that too. It just seemed unexpected for the name.

Welp, I’m glad I was kinda against liking this tea due to the price point (11.50 for 50 grams) because one of our cats, JiJi (short for Darjeeling) has developed a taste for tea and knocked over my mug – . -. The sip in the bottom of the mug was okay, but nothing worth writing home about. Some berry flavor, but not worth 11.50 for me.

I’m not going to rate this one, just because all I got to try was a sip.

I got a sample of this in the monthly subscription. Did not realize how expensive it was. Here’s hoping I don’t fall in love with it :P
