…as you may notice in a second, I drank a lot of teas from Brutaliteas today. They just have too many blends that are too perfect for Halloween. Honestly, that probably could have been my whole day of tea drinking.
I drank this one with my watch of Rocky Horror Picture Show. I really miss going to see the University of Regina’s yearly play of it each October so this was a bit of wish fulfillment for me. Plus, it’s just a blast to sing along with. I’m sure there’s probably somewhere in Montreal that does a showing of it in October/on Halloween – but I have yet to find it. At the very least, I’m sure on of the many drag bars probably cover some of the songs.
This tea was weird but good. The weird part was that it felt like someone was constantly toggling a switch where one sip with be bright and tangy/tart with distinct notes of cranberry jelly and crisp green apple. The next sip? The switch would get toggled and it was like red hot cinnamon with baked apple. A constant back and forth between the two. I loved the more Autumnal lean to the profile though, and the fruitier notes worked so well with the camp of this infamous musical. It was a fun pairing!

Again, technically more paired with the whole musical – but I do love this song.
