Cold Brew Sipdown (1390)!
This sample came to me by way of the subscription that VariaTEA gifted me for my birthday! I’m not familiar with that fandom it was inspired by, Charmed, outside of just a very baseline knowledge of what the show is about – but I did enjoy the tea!
It’s got glitted/luster dust in it so it does have a nice shimmer to it – but maybe a little on the lighter side compared to some of the other shimmery teas I’ve seen lately from Indie brands. That’s fine by me – the glitter is a cool bonus but not the selling point of the tea for me. Taste wise, this falls squarely in the realm of flavour profiles I really like though: berries and cream!! Even though most basic interpretation of a berries and cream blend is usually still pretty enjoyable to me – so no exception here. I found this more blueberry than anything else, but a more tart blueberry with some of those tangy sweet notes of the hibiscus. The black tea base added body and was a little present in the mid sip, and then the finish was creamier and more mellow.
Very refreshing as a cold brew! Good for the summer, too.
