From my Sipsby box.
Sadly, I opted out of December’s box ‘cause I went a little too hard on my BF/CM ordering but I WILL resume the box again in January so that I’m still doing the three months I told myself I’d commit to. I am really enjoying the box so far, so I want to continue with it. Just, during a month where I’ll be getting a lot less tea incoming…
This is my least favourite tea I’ve gotten from the box so far – and to be fair I don’t hate it and it’s totally drinkable, but I don’t much like it either. The mint/lemon balm are actually nice enough, and I really don’t mind them at all in any sort of tea. What’s getting to me is the chamomile – which I knew would probably happen as soon as I saw it in the blend, and the oregano. I actually thought I’d like the oregano in this because I usually like savory/herby teas quite a bit but it’s too much for me and it’s really spinning the flavour of this cup in a negative way. There’s also a REALLY strong licorice taste too, which I’m not vibing very well with either.
I don’t know – I want to like it because the company seems really cool and after reading more about them I really like everything they’re trying to do/stand for. However, loving something in theory is a lot different than in practice. Like, in theory I think snakes are lovely little happy noodles but in practice they scare the shit out of me and make me really uncomfortable.
This tastes like minty oregano medicine – and that’s not doing it for me.
