Advent from Dustin Day 23
I was so excited to open this! I was even more excited when I looked up the ingredients. I’ve never had sandalwood in tea before. The combination of sandalwood and papaya sounds so intriguing, plus the Monty Python name makes it that much better.
Brewed, this actually smells like sandalwood! The papaya is really just reading as vaguely tropical. But, the combination of earthy sandalwood and tropical fruits is really interesting, and quite nice.
I’ve never tasted sandalwood before, but I think I’m tasting it? There’s a mildly earthy and slightly resinous flavor that definitely seems like it’s sandalwood.
I actually just watched a Taste of History video that included sandalwood as an ingredient in a Renaissance gingerbread recipe…I’m even more curious to try it now.
