Yes, I’m alive! Hope everyone’s been having a wonderful holiday thus far.
One of the first things I did when I got to my mom’s was sniff my S&V teas. One criticism off the bat is the packaging, though. Paper bags? I swear almost everything smells the same because of it. I’ve been reaching way down into the bag with a spoon to take some and smell it more up close, and even then, they’re quite delicately-scented, save for the Root Beer one. That one is potent. And here these teas are known to be very potent in general. Hmm.
I went for this one this morning because it’s their most popular. I don’t seem to get much flavour from it? The base is quite strong. Adding a bit of 2% milk wakes up the nuttiness a bit but I’m having a hard time bringing this to life.
I need to figure out a way of transferring these teas to different bags or something. I don’t have enough tins, nor do I have foiled baggies. I’m concerned they’ll all taste like paper after a while.
For now, I’ll reserve rating. I’m tempted to put them in ziploc bags but I know that would only be a temporary solution.
