2039 Tasting Notes
I had to go pick my friend up again this evening, and then she waited to be picked up by another friend at my place. I made this tea for us. 4 minutes for the first steep – really good. 10+ minutes for the second steep – really good.
This tea is just really good, people. I wasn’t so sure about it last time, but wow it really worked tonight. Next time I might even try a 5 or 6 minute steep to start with.
We all took it plain, and we all really enjoyed it. And I think I need a bigger tea pot. :)
I had a
cup giant mug of this with just milk in it today. I still really like the Harney and Sons chocolate flavour. It’s not as good as teas that just have cocoa nibs and shells in them, but it’s still the best flavouring I’ve had.
With a little sugar it turns into a super sweet milk chocolatey tea, but with just milk it was dark chocolate goodness. Yum!
I got a couple bags of this from Sil, but even with the fancy variable temperature kettle, I tend to reach for black teas.
This is pretty good. It’s a green tea, but most of the green tea-ness that I don’t care for is masked by the coconut.
I wouldn’t go out and buy this one, but it’s pleasant enough to sip on while I make the dinner I forgot to have.
This time it’s Harmonizing Tulsi mixed with Redberry Tonic from DavidsTea. IDK. I think I like tulsi and apple mixed together, but not so much hibiscus or rose hips. I’ll have to find just dried apples, and mix up some tulsi and apples and some Nana’s Fruit Garden to see what happens there.
(This time unsweetened, incredibly overleafed, and I didn’t manage to finish a bag of anything. Oh well.)
I steeped it up and immediately batted it off the pedestal it had placed itself on with the addition of a spoon of sugar and a lot of milk.
You see, I’ve had a bad week and tea with milk and sugar is comfort. I’m trying to give love to all my cupboard, so I’m not just having breakfast teas… I’m having ALL the teas.
This one is delicious any way I have it. I love the citrus and apricot flavours together. The base is nice and strong, but not “in your face”. So glad I found this tea.
I made some of this tonight when I had to take my friend to work (she couldn’t drive tonight) and we weren’t sure how long she’d be.
This is definitely more of a morning tea. It was WAY too much of a kick in the pants. It’s so delicious, and so amazing with milk and brown sugar.. but not at 4:30pm. Maybe 8:30am. :) I have one more cup left in the package Cavocorax sent me, so I think I’ll have it tomorrow.
I’d love to get more, but my tea budget for Black Friday is spent. I’ll have to wait till they have another “free shipping to Canada” offer. :)
