Advent Day 5

Last day/tea to catch up on. I keep reading the description and try to taste the intended pomegranate and pineapple, but I mostly get plum. It’s surprisingly nice and flavorful after all the other plain teas in the advent. It’s gotten a little tangy in the finish in that oversteeped green sort of way now that it has cooled, something I didn’t notice while it was hot. It’s very smooth on the sip with the fruit flavor though. I can smell pineapple now that it cooled and I almost think I can taste it before my brain flips back to plum. It’s a nice tea, not something I’d seek out again though.

Advent Day 5

Tasting this without looking at the description first, I never would have guessed pineapple and pomegranate. Mango maybe? Something tropical, but not pineapple. Definitely not pomegranate. Kind of a nondescript tropical candy flavor. It’s fine, not something I’d buy, but definitely not something I’d toss.

Still waiting for a black tea in this MF advent.

It’s a bold move not to have a black tea in the first five days lol.

I find this anti-black tea bias troubling.

I agree- need more black teas.

After sampling it in 2022’s advent calendar, I wanted to spend more time with this tea. After a year of wisdom, and a summer of growing startlingly large sunflowers – I’m 95% certain I can pick out the bright sweetness of raw sunflower seeds. The note behaves like a sweetener to the more acidic but equally bright pomegranate and pineapple notes. It’s quite something, and makes for a cheerful profile.

However, I also know from experience that you don’t want to taste sunflower seeds when they’ve gone rancid. So, out of an abundance of caution in the likely case that there’s real sunflower seeds incorporated into the blend, I’m not going to be hoarding this one – despite enjoying the mix of bright, juicy tart-sweet fruits on a mouth-drying, grassy base. Enjoying it while it’s fresh!
