126 Tasting Notes
Why is it that when I finally have a day off and decide to try to sip down some of my teas, the ones in my “drink me first” box don’t look appealing? Instead I reached for this tasty treat this morning. I do add two packets of Stevia to it, that’s just me though. It has a smooth, sort of coffee-like (maybe) taste to it. I don’t get much mint but overall I do enjoy this one.
Counting on the caffeine to give me the kick I need to make the most out of this chilly day off.
Added a touch of sugar to this one and it is very scrumptious. It is nice to have something that really fits the season (baking) without splurging on everything that I made today (regular and chocolate cut outs, 2 kinds of fudge, and banana bread).
This isn’t as flavorful as I was expecting. It could be that my nose is getting a tad stuffy though. It also isn’t a bad thing, it’s not “in your face” like several of the herbals that I have (and love). The word light comes to mind while describing this taste. I am terrible at discerning separate tastes when I try a tea. All I can really tell is fruit, probably some apple. I could see keeping this one around. It is perfect for relaxing a bit and digging in for the night to read some pharmacy guidelines.
This morning started off with a chilly walk with the dog. He was not interested in the least bit. Hopefully his winter coat arrives soon! Immediately after the walk, the boyfriend started his coffee and I put the tea kettle on. I pulled out my samples and oldest teas and put them in a “drink these first” box. This tea however, is not one of my oldest so it is not in the box I am supposed to drink first.
I love this tea. It has a great flavor, almost reminding me of the blueberries I would eat when I was supposed to be out picking some for the pancakes we were having at grampas. It fills me up with warmth every time I make it.
