Sipdown! (15 | 289)
Mastress Alita’s Sipdown Challenge (October) – “a decaf/caffeine-free tea”
This one is super interesting in that, to me, it doesn’t taste like jasmine at all. I was expecting it to taste similar to a jasmine green tea, but there’s not even a hint of floral going on. It’s more… grainy? I find it difficult to explain. It’s almost like it’s somewhere between oats or maybe sticky rice, and a croissant. There’s an almost buttery quality, but it’s super light and airy at the same time. If I didn’t know better, I would maybe guess it was some kind of white tea? Maybe there are some similarities to chamomile or even elderflower, but in a much lighter sense?
I feel like I’m crazy, because Arby’s note is totally different and mentions jasmine and bitterness… But regardless, I’m finding this super unique and delicious, and I’ll definitely have to order some more soon. We’ll see if, when that happens, it tastes totally different and this was just a fluke of some kind…?
