This is an upsetting sipdown for me; I’ve greatly enjoyed this black tea and all its weird but connected layers of flavour. It’s sweet (chocolate), spicy (clove and cinnamon), tart (cranberry) – really it’s just every great autumnal flavour in one beautiful package. I debated not finishing it until the fall when it would be more appropriate, but I think I was just ready to let go of this one and everything it meant to me…
When I envisioned this blend it was a representation of a relationship with someone that no longer exists now – literally a phrase that he said to me to poetically convey how we were two opposite people coming together to create something stronger and more beautiful. That just simply isn’t true any more though.
I’d love to get this recreated by BlendBee for myself at some point in the future – but I can guarantee you that if I ever do that it will be under a different blend name.
