Sipdown! (4 | 101)
Mastress Alita’s Sipdown Challenge (August) – “A banana tea”
So since I have the whole month to do the sipdown challenge this time, I’d like to try and get actual sipdowns for each prompt, instead of just writing a note. I’ve gone through my spreadsheet and selected the teas, so wish me luck! The only one I’m not sure about is the raspberry prompt, as the only ones I have are full 50g packages, and I already have a couple of those for other categories. So we’ll see!
Anyway, enough rambling, on to the tea!
This is not gingerbread to me. It has sweetness to it, but the ginger is quite earthy, which doesn’t bring cookies to mind. But I think Harney’s Gingerbread Festival may have ruined all other gingerbread teas for me, because that one is fucking delicious lol. Highly recommend.
I don’t get enough banana here either, it’s a bit hidden under the earthiness and ginger. It comes out a bit more at the end of the sip, but it’s still very mild.
So a miss on all counts for me, not gingerbread and not enough banana either. Just a somewhat sweet earthy ginger root and clove tea with a hint of banana. Oh well, yay sipdown! :)
