Recent Tasting Notes
I went out of my way to grab some lemons the other night because I could no longer resist my craving for some of this, and the only way I can truly enjoy it is with a squeeze of lemon, because I still can’t get over how weirdly creamy it turns this blend. YUM, YUM, YUM. I think I’m going to have to restock this, my supplies are dwindling and I don’t think I can live without it in the cupboard.
Though I did have a (forgotten) cup of it cold next to the bed this morning and that was a bit weird. Might microwave it.
Oh lawd oh lawd oh lawd. I finally let myself open my restocked packet of this tonight after my first encounter via Monstrositea and my toes are curling with happiness.
You know when you’re so fond of a tea that even as soon as you’ve opened it, you’re sad to think of it being gone? I get like that over a few of mine… this one in particular because it’s a rare beauty I won’t easily restock, being that Monstrositea’s heroine brought a small amount back from India with her and I think it may all be sold out from her store already.
But considering how happy I am right now, if there’s any still left I think I’m just gonna have to buy it.
The first of the Monstrositea August box—another exciting month of teas, I’m glad I stuck with this over the other Aussie box.
I’ll admit that I mostly picked this tonight because it’s a herbal. My first sip was a big mouthful of licorice root, which bummed me out, but then I decided to follow Monstrositea’s suggestion of adding a squeeze of fresh lemon and MY MIND IS BLOWN.
OK. A squeeze of fresh lemon totally transformed this tea for me—and makes me wonder if my licorice root hatred can be zapped using the same method in the future too. That aggressive licorice flavour was just… depleted. A faint lingering but that’s it. And it actually made this blend taste super creamy. What!? I’m so confused but also so excited. What. Ok. Cool.
Definitely looking forward to the rest of this.
