I’m doing another mini tournament! Just 8 teas.
First up: This tea, Blueberry Buttermilk Short Stack Pancakes vs. Unicorn Fluff by the NecessiTeas. You can check out the tasting note for that here: https://steepster.com/teas/the-necessiteas/93051-unicorn-fluff?post=422971
This is my first time having this tea and it has the pancake thing going against it since I am off that flavor right now. That said, it isn’t overly pancake tasting to me. It has cooled slightly so perhaps that has something to do with it but I am getting a very dark blueberry flavor. Not much sweetness at all. Just strong/brisk black tea base, and some blueberry – true to the berry itself, though a not very sweet berry. Also as I kept drinking I got something that was almost cinnamon-like, which isn’t meant to be here. I am wondering if that is something I am getting from the base tea?
I also have to say it may be my tastebuds that are off today because Unicorn Fluff also doesn’t have much sweetness, and it usually has more. Nevertheless, I think the briskness lost it for this tea in my opinion. I am just not a fan of that, but for those that don’t mind it, this could be a fun take on a “breakfast” tea.
