From BlendBee

Custom Tea made by Roswell Strange.

Ecstatic shock is the thrill of catching a glimpse from someone you like. It starts in your stomach, rises through your lungs, and ends in a smile. This blend is sweet, and warming just like the phenomenon of ecstatic shock.

The blueberry is for Haidyn, as it’s his favourite fruit.

Ingredients: Oolong tea, *Anise seed, *Coriander Seed, *Fennel Seed, *Ginger, with Blueberry and *Cinnamon natual flavour extracts.

*Indicates an organic ingredient.

Roswell Strange was nice to share some of her own blend with me. She suggested I refer to her posts to learn more about the blend and I learned a few things:

1. I have never experience static shock;
2. This was inspired by her bf at the time which is nice to be inspired by someone to make a flavorful tea;
3. This is blueberry, ginger, fennel and cinnamon; and
4. This tea hasn’t aged well and tasted like baby wipes the last time RS had it.

I don’t love licorice so this would never have been a favorite. However, the fennel/licorice flavor is not as offensive as I expected. Also, while I can see how this could be construed as baby wipes, it hasn’t quite reached that for me (thankfully). I get the cinnamon and the blueberry is underlying everything but not very present. This is warm and pastry-like. It is not my favorite tea but I am enjoying this much more than anticipated in light of the baby wipes and fennel.

Thanks for sharing, Roswell Strange!

When I had the blend created, I was definitely aiming for a sort of blueberry pastry kind of vibe – I chose blueberry because it was Haidyn’s (the BF who inspired the tea) favourite food/flavour, and then built the rest of the blend around it. I’ve gone through a bit of an emotional rollercoaster with this tea – it was something sweet, and sentimental initially then something that made me feel rather angry and bitter. Now I think it’s something that leaves me feeling a bit of nostalgia and melancholy.

Had this one whilst at the height of ‘laryngitis misery’. I actually deliberately picked it out because I thought the anise and fennel seed combo in the blend would be really pleasant on my throat; and it actually was very soothing! I couldn’t really taste much of it though, a bit of fruity blueberry sweetness and licorice sweetness. It wasn’t enough anise/licorice taste to be considered a “punch” of licorice, but maybe like a solid slap of anise? And then a hint of cinnamon in the finish.
