Sorta Sipdown (162/166)!
Also going to 221Tea. I picked this one out next because I needed a non caffeinated tea to counter balance the string of blacks I had this afternoon, and because it’s surprisingly similar to the Orange Spiced Nut rooibos blend I had from Cuppa’T earlier today.
I have to say that I honestly prefer the Cuppa’T blend to this one – for a bunch of reason. Personally, I think the orange in this blend tastes sort of artificial and “soapy” and I find the sandalwood in it really detracts from the only winning quality this blend has IMO, and that’s the walnut flavour. Tea Desire does walnut very well, and the walnut in this blend tastes awesome albeit very drowned out/overshadowed by the other elements of the blend.
For me it’s too much going on and, like Robin would say in Young Justice, it leaves me feeling “whelmed” (not underwhelmed or overwhelmed – just right in between: sorry, I’ve been watching season one of Young Justice all day and I have a fascination with Robin’s vocabulary). I really hope that 221Tea finds it more enjoyable, especially since she’s a rooibos fan in general.
I, however, am not sad to see this one go although I am glad I made a final, departing mug of it.
