Q is for…Queen’s Blend
Thank you, Sil! I didn’t realize this was a black/green blend with lavender when I was preparing what to send to Roswell Strange in the Strange VariaTea TTB. If I had, I likely would have passed this along for her to try since there is a better chance of her appreciating it than me. However, I had it and decided to give it a try, but I went in with low expectations.
The low expectations paid off I guess because it ended up being better than expected. The black/green base blend doesn’t really do anything in a positive or negative light so I guess that’s fine. The lavender is the real culprit since I am definitely getting the regular lavender soapiness here. However, the savior of this blend is the vanilla that is trying (and while the battle is close, failing) to overpower the lavender. I think if the lavender was gone, this would be a good blend but I also know that’s my personal preference and likely wouldn’t be the case for others.
