BrutaliTeas Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 4
I’ve enjoyed blackberry sage teas in the past, so I was happy to see this today! And the name made me giggle, of course… :P
I like it, but I think there is just slightly too much sage here. It’s making the cup slightly bitter (I think, unless it’s from something else). The blackberry is very sweet, syrupy, and candylike, sort of like blackcurrant. The sage adds a nice aromatic and savory counterpoint and helps cut through the sweetness a bit with its eucalyptus-y notes. But I do think a tiny bit less sage would’ve been even better, it’s contributing a somewhat bitter taste, especially at the beginning of the sip.
Still nice, and I do enjoy this flavor combination! Although I think I like raspberry & sage even more. :D
