All my tea that arrived Friday is sitting in the leasing office. First world problems that I have to make do with all the tea already in my apartment, right?
My grandma let me take a ton of things from her house back with me, since she isn’t there to use them anymore, although a lot of these things hadn’t been in use for quite some time anyway. So I now have a bread maker, which is beyond dangerous for a breadoholic, a pizelle maker, a blender, some interesting slicer thing, and some old oil paints and pastels. In the 70s, my grandma painted a lot and her paintings are hung all over the house. Surprisingly a majority of the paints are still wet! The pastels are so very retro…bright, interesting colors. I’ve had my share of pastel sets and none of them have had some of these almost neon colors so they’ll be fun to play with.
My kitchen gadget collection is out of hand now. I do make use of everything and on the plus side I did turn down a pancake griddle since I have a panini press that can open flat to be used like one, and I won’t ever own a “quesadilla maker” (as I call that a frying pan) like my brother.
So finally back to my tea, surprisingly made with water heated up in a kettle on a stove of all things!
This reminds me a bit of DavidsTea’s Northern Lights with less interesting ingredients. Well, bean peels is an interesting ingredient, but I don’t think it’s adding much. This is mostly raspberry, hibiscus, and mint.
I made it as an iced tea, and the hibiscus gives it a little tartness, and adds a good bit of color. The leaf is mostly green with fruity bits and pieces in there, so I was surprised when I poured it because it was pinkish red. I hadn’t realized there was hibiscus in it until I got to this page.
Otherwise, it tastes like you’d think raspberry mint would taste like. It’s not strongly minty, thanks to the berry flavor. At the same time though, it’s not super fruity, so it’s a good balance between the two. It’s a little tart, but not bothersome enough to need sugar to counteract it.
Definitely refreshing especially if you’re feeling like me, tired despite not having that busy of a day. I’m normally not wiped out from a 2 hour interstate drive but I guess at the same time I also don’t usually encounter road work, pouring rain, AND an accident on the same trip.
After my rather unfortunate experience with the last tea, I am hoping that this will help me take my mind off of that unpleasantness… normally, I wouldn’t turn to an herbal to help me in such a way, but, since it is now 11:40 pm, I figure I need to lighten up on the caffeine… otherwise I’ll never get to sleep.
This has a lot of hibiscus in it, but, fortunately it is apparent mostly with the color and texture of the liquor rather than the flavor. Yes, I still taste hibiscus too, but it rounds out the raspberry flavor nicely enough that I am not finding it to be an off-putting hibiscus experience.
The raspberry is nice. It is sweet and tart, but not too tart. The peppermint is a nice contrast to the sweet berry taste. I taste the apple tones, although I don’t know that I taste much from the chamomile here, and I don’t know what I’d taste from the bean peel. This has a nice, full kind of taste. It’s quite soothing.
