1344 Tasting Notes
Ah, Tension Tamer. You may not taste the best (invariably better than the last cup of tea I had, mind you), however you do ease my tension amazingly well, and for whatever reason I craved you tonight. Welcome back to my cupboard, yet again.
I have so much of this that I forget about it, because it’s sitting in a HUGE tin parked under my tea bags and sweetener. So today I pulled it out, because gosh darn it, it’s yummy for when I want something with zero caffeine. A bit too sweet today though, even though the creamy candy cane part was delish.
Funny, I didn’t even put this in my cupboard.. I knew it would be outside my interest. Ah well. I tried it, and then dumped it. Why? It brewed up a purple-ish color, and then went blood-red almost immediately — never a good sign for me. Honestly? It tasted like spiced blood, and that’s something I find unappealing.
Regardless, my colleague Helen in Australia sent this along, and I am really grateful for all the great teas she gave me the opportunity to try.
I am SO grateful that jump36259 (I think I got those numbers right) sent me even more of this! The initial few cups she sent me went down way too fast, so now I’m into stash #2. Still amazingly delicious, and will become a permanent fixture in my cupboard.
