Adventaggedon Day Twenty Two – 5/6

When I saw this tea today I was confused what, of the many fairies out there, this blend might be trying to reference. What a lovely discovery to see that it’s actually part of a series of blends inspired by Pokemon types! I will definitely be perusing the rest of the types later to see if any of the blends catch my eye…

Sadly, this one didn’t land very strongly with me. The combination of the rooibos and almond oil is pretty nice and gives a sort of poundcake-like profile, and I actually think that’s really thematically on point since there are actually several Fairy type pokemon inspired by baked goods. Where the tea lost me was all the flowers.

So, when you add a bunch of flower petals to a tea they actually rarely taste like the flower itself smells – mostly you’re adding them as a visual component. A few exceptions exist, like lavender or jasmine, but something like rose petals isn’t actually going to taste like roses. That’s what’s happening here with the calendula, cornflower, and other florals. Instead, what comes across is an almost stale seeming sour-note with a lot of accompanying astringency. Normally you wouldn’t use enough petals for their taste to actually be noticable, or you’d mask it through the use of other ingredients – sadly that’s just not happening here and so the taste is super not pleasant.

It’s a bit of a shame – I like the concept for this one a lot!

I’m probably just overthinking it but a bunch of flower petals makes me think more of grass-type pokemon than fairy..
