Oh, the agony!
For two days in a row now I have forgotten to bring tea into work. I used up all of my loose leaf and keep forgetting to bring more in. So I am relegated to the tea stash of unwanted teas that are sitting in my drawer for this specific occasion. But being two days now, I have used up all the kind of unwanted teas and am now using the really unwanted teas.
This tea is VERY old. Like two jobs ago, 9ish years maybe. I specifically remember buying this tea but I can’t remember why I bought it. I also specifically remember not liking it at all. And I have a memory of spiking it with Splenda but that being a disaster.
So this is all I have and it is better than no tea at all.
This is not as bad as my memory indicated. There is a moderate black base, it is getting bitter now that the cup is almost done. There is a light raspberry taste at the beginning of the sip. It is a cross between artificial raspberry flavour and raspberry leaf. I think the flavour it is quite muted being as old as it is.
It will suffice for now but I am going to the drugstore to see if I can find some somewhat more suitable tea for the unwanted tea drawer.
