203 Tasting Notes
This has been in my cupboard for quite a while and thought it was time to try it. I think it is the first herbal tea I’ve had, so I don’t have much to compare it to. I bought it because it had promises of floral notes. The only notes I’m tasting are citrus and chamomile. It’s a mild flavor and kind of bores me. I think I’ll pass this on to my friend Kim :)
After sipping down many of my opened samples this weekend, I thought I deserved to open a new one :) Can you go wrong with oolong?!? I have yet to taste one that I didn’t care for.
This reminds me of a milder, smoother, and almost buttery Irish or English breakfast. My tea horizons are expanding thanks to Steepster.
Update: Second steep brought out some fruity notes. Interesting :)
Sipdown :( Super sad face here. This tea was absolutely delicious and I’m sad to see it go. Even more sad that it’s been out of stock at Boston Tea for a couple of months. I hope they restock sometime.
I did find the Bentley’s bagged version of this. It’s just not as good. It will have to do from now on.
I probably should have chosen my Scottish Toffee Pu-erh to complement my watching of Monarch of the Glen, but I wanted to finish up this last sample of the day :) I love this show & this tea!
Sipdown Sunday in effect y’all!
I have 3 more samples with just a couple cups worth of tea left. This is a favorite and a possible purchase :) It’s buttery and perfectly coconut-y. YUM!
Christmas decorations came down today. It’s always sad to see them go. If I had it my way, they’d be up all year. But honestly, I don’t want to have to dust them all.
Enjoying my last cup of this beautiful tea. It’s so light and floral. Unlike the movie I’m watching – Immortals. Sheesh. I’ve not watched a movie with this much gore in a long time. People literally smashing other people to bits. I guess the one thing that goes with this tea is the beauty that is Henry Cavill.
It’s not living as such that’s important, Theseus. It’s living rightly.
Joined in the Saturday Sample Sipdown suggested by Madeline Alyce on the discussion boards. This is sipdown #1.
The more teas I try, they more discerning I am about flavors I like. This one is a bit of a let down. It probably would be great as a tea latte with milk and sugar, but by itself, it falls flat.
