1900 Tasting Notes
I had a big mug of this yesterday as I felt I might be coming down with something. With a little honey in my travel mug, this tea was excellent. Warmth from the ginger, a nice comforting background from the puerh.
Definitely one I’d like to keep around. Not necessarily a tin, but maybe a bit more in my bag. :)
I do like this one, but can’t really justify buying more right now. Instead, I’m going to take some DavidsTea Redberry Tonic (since I have some) and add a few lavender flowers and a spoonful of sage leaves. It won’t be quite the same, but since the strongest flavour in this one is the sea buckthorn, followed by the citrus and sage and lavender, I feel that will be a good substitute.
Sipping this down with a spoonful of honey. Yum.
I topped up my mug of this one with Noel Nog. Yes. Soy based egg nog. Its primary flavour is nutmeg, and it seemed like it would go well with this tea.
It’s pretty good. Just a hint of saltiness tonight. Not one I’d be buying again, though. I’m starting to get a bit of a synthetic sweet aftertaste from these Teavana teas that isn’t my favourite.
Only one mug of this left!
Nice big mug of this one tonight.
Silk Road teas always last forever, because they recommend only 1 tsp per 16 oz. And I follow their directions. :) I’m not even half way through this tea, and I’ve given a bunch away. Gotta drink more faster!
(This is possibly my favourite Earl Grey.)
I enjoyed this one this morning, and so did my mom. :) I steeped mine a little too long and it got a bit astringent/tannic, but it was still quite tasty. I’ll have to get some more at some point since I do like it. I think I prefer the puerh I picked up, though.
My mom decided to keep this tea too. Yeesh!
