It’s the holiday season and we all could use a little more love around here. I’ve got some love in my cup right now thanks to Metolius Artisan Tea. This is a mix of rooibos and white tea along with osthmanthus flowers, rose, toasted coconut and bergamot and almond extract.
It tastes like I’m drinking a bar of soap. Rose and coconut are not two flavors that play well together, and combined with the almond extract, this blend has a peculiarly dry and musty aftertaste. This will improve if you drink it at room temperature or cooler, but not by much. Blech.
