Adventaggedon Day Fourteen – 3/6
Other than my embarassing Edward Gorey mix up, this is the first fandom blend we’ve encountered in this advent where I really haven’t had any substantial knowledge of the inspiration – checking Thesaurus’ website this seems to be Castlevania inspired!? I’ve never played the games or watched the anime though, so I definitely don’t understand any reference that’s being made here…
I thought the ingredients list of this tea looked chaotic in a messy way, but the idea of a “Wintergreen Chai” seemed promising. The dry leaf actually smelled a lot like rootbeer which quickly peaked my interest. Steeped up, it kind of tastes like rootbeer too. Maybe rootbeer if it was extra anise-y in taste. It makes sense that’s where my sleep addled brain went though, what with the wintergreen and other spices.
It’s not my favourite blend we’ve tried from Thesaurus, and I’m noticing they seem to have a thing for star anise in a similar way to butterfly pea flower. However, I liked it more than expected and I don’t think I’d pass up a cup of it if offered again.

(Had to do some googling to get today’s music pairing, since I’ve been trying to stay on fandom theme with this advent.)
