GCTTB DAY 3
Had this one with dinner (which was actually more like breakfast for dinner) and it actually paired pretty well. I made some fried ham and eggs sunny side up with toast and avocado, and the tea complimented my meal quite nicely. Although I enjoyed the pairing, I can’t say the tea itself was impressive. I should have probably known better just from the description and ingredient list on the package, but it was too tart for my liking. Not only that, but I felt like that flavours of was unbalanced and I competition with each other. The tart apple pieces and hibiscus only managed to bring out more tartness and bitterness in each other, while the cinnamon was rather heaped onto it as if trying to cover up a huge mess. Honestly it wasn’t that bad, but that was the general impression I got. My first try of a Pluck tea, hopefully the other one I want to try (ice wine) will be more successful.
