Adventaggedon Day 18: Tea 6/7
If I’m being honest, I don’t think this is very meringue like at all. I think for a meringue I really would have expected something a lot lighter with an airy sort of creaminess to it. This is more of a light to medium bodied and very fruity type of profile with a lot of really lively and bright top notes of ripe strawberries and tangy kiwi. It’s delicious – I love a good strawberry kiwi blend. However, nothing to the taste gives off baked goods/pastry or that meringue kind of texture or taste that I’ve described above. I also just don’t find the combination of strawberries and kiwi to be wintery at all so the “Merry Berry” element of that name ALSO feels really out of place to me.
Like, this is a summer tea. You can’t convince me that this isn’t a summer tea.
It’s a nice tea though! But I just don’t know how I should feel about it given that I kind of think everything about the name direction just didn’t land.
