1481 Tasting Notes
I quite enjoyed this today. With gluten free cheesecake. :)
One of the mugs I took to work with me. The other two were coffee (all gone) and Butiki’s So Long and Thanks for all the Licorice (not much gone at all).
I had a busy day.
But now I’ve had ice cream, and I have a large glass of water with lime in it, and it’s pretty much time for bed.
I’ll finish the Butiki tea as an iced treat in the morning.
This is totally from last year, and I still like it lots. It’s incredibly sweet, with sweet candy-ish spices and practically no pumpkin flavour. Yet I’d count it as one of my favourite fall teas. Definitely a favourite over DavidsTea’s Pumpkin Chai, although they are similar.
So yeah. If you can, check this out. If not, then don’t worry about it. Especially if you’re not a fan of the pumpkin spice craze.
Another one from MissB. Yes, there are LOADS more now. :)
It’s not bad. Not a favourite, but not bad. IDK, it strikes me as peachy or apricoty, with some floral. The base isn’t the best, but it’s decent. I’d like it a bit better with a tiny touch of sugar instead of just milk, I think. Just to take the edge off. It was good hot in the morning, and I finished the rest cold in an afternoon meeting.
Not bad, but not something I’d hunt out to buy.
Thanks for sharing!
A sample from Shmiracles! Thank you. :)
Sadly, I find the Adagio lapsang blends to be almost stomach-churningly like drinking soaked campfire ash. So, uh, not for me. It was pretty smooth, but the flavour just did not work at all.
Maybe if it was 1/16 lapsang and mostly the other blends I’d like it more, but as it stands I had to dump it. :( I hate doing that with tea.
I tried it with maple syrup and milk.
This… is odd.
A sample from MissB. And now I’ve read your review, I totally get why you dispersed it. Haha.
It’s hibiscus. And I’m getting a lot of mint. So weird. I had to add some honey, without it was terrible. And even now it’s not super great. I guess it’d be good if I were actually sick instead of just run down and possibly coming down with something, but it’s not for me at all.
(I mean, peppermint and hibiscus? What?!)
Had the last bit of this from the SSTTB this morning, with a splash of milk. I still quite like this one, I do find that when taken occasionally, bergamot and lavender do go together quite well. :)
I spent the day out with my mom, and did some, umm, shopping. I got a yoga towel (it’s sticky! and also it’s more grippy than my mat, so I don’t slide everywhere!), nail polish (Spa Ritual! Woo!), tights, 4 t-shirts ($5 each, so yeah), a sweatshirt material maxi skirt, and groceries. Haha. Oh man, I didn’t need to spend all that money. But most of that was on my to-buy list, so I feel pretty good about it.
