Advent calendar [17/24]
Sidenote: I believe I am getting sick. Perhaps it’s a cold, perhaps it’s all the sugary junk I’ve been eating combined with my holiday time stress. All I want to eat is terrible food.
I opened the tin up this morning and gagged at the smell. It was way too strong. The strange thing is, it tastes nothing like it smells.
The reviewer who noted that this tea tastes like cheap already-been-chewed bubblegum hit the nail on the head.
I’m not entirely sure what I’m supposed to be tasting. I can taste clove and lemon with a weird aftertaste. I was really looking forward to this oolong because I thought it’d be sweet, sour and cinnamon-like. I thought it would be like a hot sangria or a hot cider. This tea doesn’t resemble either of those, apart from the citrusy feel.
I’m going to resteep this one later tonight. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to finish this cup.
Flavors: Citrus Zest, Clove
