Consider this teabag is from an ancient teabox. I was intrigued – a savory tea. Numi has (or had) a line of six weird savory teas. This one wouldn’t have been the one I most wanted to try… As I was debating what tea to have, I noticed that there were staple holes in the wrapping, which means the wrapper had been partially opened for all these years. I’m not sure if this is why this tea now tastes like a compost pile? Or if it would have tasted like that anyway? The black tea didn’t taste like decaf, but it didn’t taste like a robust black tea either – more like an empty palate base for this weird flavor. Both steeps tasted the same. Of course, I knew when I took it from the teabox that I would regret that it would take me forever to try such a unique tea. But probably, if I want soup, I’ll just eat soup. I feel like I want to live on tomato soup all winter but I can not stand normal tomatoes. So that’s weird. I get all my tomato in soup and KETCHUP.
