1792 Tasting Notes
Woo! I have more of this left than I thought I did! Enough for a GIANT POT or two more big mugs.
Apples and cinnamons and some light sweetness. I added honey by pouring the tea back and forth into a scraped clean honey jar. Just enough was left to add a touch to this tea. It just brings out the apple, and it’s so good.
ALSO, I made a pair of “jeans” last night. By “jeans” I mean they are stretch denim with none of the topstitching and they have an elastic waist. Haha. I wore them to work today and OMG, like wearing PJs. Too bad wearing them makes me feel old.
Oh well. Comfort over, well, most things really.
Mmm…. steeped a bit longer than usual today, and it’s so good! Why haven’t I steeped this tea for 5 minutes before?
It’s not super sweet, but there is some caramel. Lots of tea flavour. So good with milk.
(This one is almost a sip down as well. I have quite a collection I could finish! Maybe this coming weekend. :) )
I’m sad that I only have 1 tsp left of this tea!
Oh well. It’s been a good run and I’ve enjoyed it. Maybe once my cupboard is smaller I’ll consider stocking it, because I do like how it tastes (little chocolate, little cream, little booze) and the name is HILARIOUS.
Caramel flavoured gunpowder + black tea. At least, that’s what I can tell. The gunpowder was really spinachy for me tonight, and really… caramel is not a sauce I’d put on my spinach.
Otherwise, this tea is fun. And I love caramel. So I’ve drunk it all.
Thanks so much, Shmiracles! I think I’m almost through all the samples you gave me oh so long ago. :)
Thanks so much for the sample, Dustin!
So. Orange and vanilla? Mostly I got rose and orange flower! Whoa! I did really like it though. It had that “Fauchon” flavour, in that it’s quite similar in base to the other teas I have.
Really sweet and desserty. Yum! If I saw it, I would probably get some. That being said, I do like Naissance and Un Soir de France a bit better. :)
