Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Saturday, September 4th: National Spice Blend Day Tea #2
From the sale and fits for the spice challenge! I wanted to grab this rare blend in the sale. It’s a gunpowder green with a mix of spices and lovely red and blue flowers that for some reason remind me of fireworks, which I guess fits for this blend, part of the ‘Crackle & Bang’ collection. The flavor is straightforward enough! It’s a chai on a gunpowder green base, so I’m not expecting more than that. So the expectation is delivered! However, the description mentions “smoked” and chili pepper and I definitely don’t notice anything smoky or chili pepper spicy about this. I love all the B&B chai and somehow it is now that time of year.
