Yesterday I could not roll a number on the Geek Pride D & D die that RABS had so thoughtfully provided in her magnificent package—see pictures at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/destro/4675973000/
Today I rolled a “1” and opened a package with two offerings in it—who doesn’t love a bonus? I’ve chosen to try this one first and will write a review of the second one within 24 hours. I was away from home for quite a bit and discovered that using tea bags is not the death of Western Civilization nor of me specifically so I was happy to try Stash tea. I’ve not had it before as far as I know.
This Breakfast Blend is a bit mysterious: it contains a “blend of organic black tea” and I cannot pick out a single black tea that I could swear is contained herein. It’s a good tea bag, but does not have the strength of some of the kickier blacks I like to drink in the day time. I used 6 ounces of water and steeped the tea for 4 minutes and a few seconds. Perhaps I should have used less water or steeped the tea longer, because this tea is going to end up with the strange verdict “Pleasant”. A ruling of “pleasant” is not fatal, but I guess it’s damning with faint praise.
Nonetheless, I am very happy to have tried this tea and can attest that it’s a nice, pleasant brew.
