drank Sweet Chili by Yogi Tea
1155 tasting notes

Evening caffeine-free cup. I have received it from postcrossing apparently. Quote on tag: I am beautiful, I am bountiful. I am blissful.

So, honestly I have no idea what is in and I am not a fan of chili at all. Or any spicy food. So drinking this is quite… uncommon for me.

It smells after cocoa. With licorice. It is true to name. It is sweet chili with cocoa? Certainly, there is the licorice. There is some warmth beneath, not sure if true chili, or some herbs causing it. Unique flavour profile for sure though. Sometimes it smells like gingerbread. Probably caused by the spices in.

Not sure if I like it honestly. So unique, but I can’t imagine drinking it on daily basis. Now and then, maybe. I can imagine it with bold black tea base. The herbals… aren’t great.

Song pairing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pgum6OT_VH8 — found accidentaly and found out I have heard it before for sure. Well, sometimes I want to be on the board of that ship. “Far away from the memories; Of the people who care if I live or die.”

Flavors: Cocoa, Ginger, Herbaceous, Licorice, Spices, Spicy

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

I’ll hold you in my arms, Martin. hugs Have you heard much of Muse’s music before?

I am pretty sure I have heard them before, derk. But not that much as I am listening to them that often. Same with Placebo. I am finding new for me (though old), music bands. Hah.

They have some great songs that helped me put feelings to and get through some trying times in my 20s. Same with Placebo. They were both amazing live performances.

Just spent an hour listening to some of my old favorites from 2005-2006. I’d heard this one before, but I didn’t know the name of the band. From the YouTube comments, it seems like a lot of people really relate to this song.

The blend sounds very interesting. It almost reminds me of Mexican chocolate with the chili and spices. Yogi teas are usually hit or miss for me, especially because they do tend to add licorice to everything (which I do not often like). It does sound like it would be a good one with a bold black tea base as you mention. At least the quote can be a bit of inspiration for you today, I hope. <3

I played it for Ashman, and was shocked he had not heard of Muse or Placebo, especially since I played Running Up That Hill to death back in the day. (Guess I was always wearing earbuds.) He was really into metal and rock in the 80’s and was bass guitarist in a band,:then switched gears completely to Classical guitar. He still has his Gibson Ripper and his Kohno classical.

derk: Oh zeah, I am sure they are amazing live! And I think it is pretty much common for people in their 20s (where I am right in the middle) understanding lyrics of of Placebo and Muse. Sometimes the lyrics are saysing exactly how I feel. Like this one.
Shae: It’s exactly that. Listening to old favourites. I do that way too often recently. Probably hoping I could return to that time full of good mood and time I don’t had to care. Oh well. Blend is truly interesting. The licorice was mediocre in this one — sometimes too much present, but sometimes well mixed with the spices. The quote is truly a bit of inspiration indeed.
ashmanra: Oh well, truly surprsing. Running Up That Hill is as well powerful song. I am a bit puzzled when it comes to music. I sometimes listen to rock, but then I switch my mood to something else like Springsteen. At least I have a variety here :)

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
