1422 Tasting Notes
Still intense. I quite like it though… the longer I steep it the more, um, pungent it gets. Sort of plastic-y thick, with a waxy feel to it. Weird stuff comes out of my pores and body when I drink this, in a good way.
Flavors: Grass, Herbaceous, Thick
OMG this makes an amazing Bulletproof Tea. (look on my Instagram for what I mean, although I took a picture of Hot Chocolate instead: http://instagram.com/bonnyadventures)
I was a bit surprised, as I’m getting a bit tired of this tea… although it still smells amazing, and that’s why I keep the last of it around. Silly, I know.
Drinking this today, and have a GORGEOUS picture to share, just need to upload it from my phone. It’s a bit flat – was expecting a bit more complexity in the first steep (after a quick rinse). Green, light, earthy, a bit crunchy (?) and sweet, grass-like but lighter. Have kept it to re-steep a few more times and see how I feel as it goes.
Flavors: Earth, Grass, Sweet
In Jasper, and this was for sale in the local health food store – one of two places to buy food in this town that isn’t a restaurant. I wanted to buy every single blend, however I only have room for one, so this is it.
I loved drinking this. Not entirely sure I can put it into words. It was… grounding. (as the packaging suggests). Felt really good. Nourishing. I drank it faster than any other tea today. It just felt good at a soul level. I can’t explain why.
I think I might need more of this before I head off to Edinburgh on the 1st.
Steepster, I love you. I’m not sure why it isn’t mutual… I mean, I really love you. I send you new peeps all the time, I talk you up constantly, I support you wherever possible, I’m here for you…
… and you seem to consistently lose my tea ratings in thanks.
This is one of those reviews. I know I’ve reviewed it – I know where I was sitting when I reviewed it just a few weeks back when I bought this. And yet…
So, yes, I’ll get over it. Just please, tell me, how can I support you, to support me, oh lovely Steepster? :)
(BTW: this tea is quite lovely, I’m really enjoyed the aged and/or smoked whites, it’s surprisingly sweet and robust).
I know it’s just spices. I know I can add this to pretty much any tea and make it my own. I know I can. But I don’t. I just drink it before bed because there’s zero caffeine, it’s a bit unique in the chai department, and I love the spice combo. I also know it’s too pricey for just, well, spices, to replenish, so I’ll enjoy it as-is until I’m out.
