1883 Tasting Notes
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. :)
I think I like this one more than the Raspberry Balsamico, but I’m having them blended again. 1 tbsp each tea in my big teapot (eee!), steeped 4 minutes. I added 1 tsp honey.
Whatever I don’t drink tonight will go in the fridge for tomorrow!
This is nice and limey. Some raspberry. Some sweetish taste that could be the balsamic. The blend is good, but the lime on its own is better. Too bad it’s a heavier, and thus more expensive, tea. If it’s even available anymore…
A sample from Dustin! Thank you. :)
This smells like sweet banana candy. There’s weirdly not much chocolate in there as well. I steeped a bit short and cool, because I was making an oolong at the same time. Unfortunately, the tea is really thin. I like the flavour, it’s nice that the banana is stronger than the chocolate. But the texture just isn’t doing it for me.
Are all these puerhs and oolongs ruining me for regular black tea? GASP. I hope not.
I do like this, but it’s better way overleafed with a little honey added. I’m having this after I realized I forgot dinner, and made bacon and eggs. :D
It’s a good combo, actually.
And this tea is a perfect before bed tea because of the chamomile.
Grandpa style, only I haven’t refilled my thermos at all.
I put 4 tiny nuggets in the bottom of my not-a-timolino this morning, and added boiling water. I’ve been sipping randomly all day, and it’s been SO good! Really mild and soothing. A little foresty but not much. IDK, I just really like this tea this way.
I cleaned my skinny mesh tea strainer (the one that fits into the top of my Contigo mugs) and made a mug of this for work today!
OMG, I forgot how good this is. SO GOOD. Seriously. I’m so glad I have another 50g bag in the cupboard, because delicious tea is delicious.
