2021 Sipdown #12
Another sad sip down, but it’s time for this one to go! It’s a few years old so it’s losing flavor, especially the bready, bakey flavors. I’m still getting some cinnamon, caramel, vanilla type flavors but they’re weaker, so I will enjoy this last cup and be happy I got to enjoy most of this while it was nice and fresh!
Most of my old AQ2T samples are opened and that’s why so many have lost their flavor. While cleaning out my tea, I found this one that was still sealed. I opened it up and made myself a cup, hoping the flavor had held up better in this one. Luckily it had! After that cup, I made a pot to share with my partner and we both really enjoyed it.
My first cup was very tart raspberry/strawberry heavy without any creamy custardiness. The pot that we shared had more of a strawberry and blueberry flavor, and much more of the vanilla cream-type flavor that I was expecting. We have a few more cups of this one left and I don’t plan on letting it sit around and get old(er)!
