2194 Tasting Notes
Oh, that’s a cute picture! (It’s 4 white teacups with varying colours of tea on some wooden boards, in case it changes again.)
Tonight I’ve mixed 50/50 Almond Marzipan by Zen Tea, and Creme Brulee by DavidsTea. And I added some of that weird creamer I made… which I’m totally going to make again, but include 1 tbsp maple syrup to make it more like commercial dairy free creamers.
So. Good. It’s dessert in a cup, definitely helped out by the amount of calories in the coconut creamer. :D Yum yum yum.
I brought a mug of this to work today, supplemented with a little maple syrup… which was too sweet. I can’t win! :)
It was delicious, and I greatly enjoyed it. Now I’m at home watching Sherlock and trying to do laundry but someone in my building is a jerk and didn’t even bother leaving a basket. I’m not OK with dumping their clean laundry on the gross floor…
Today I’m having this with my coconut-egg creamer of weirdness.
It’s pretty good. Better with regular milk though. Or commercial coconut milk creamer. Mostly because the toffee comes through better.
I need ALL the caffeine. All of it. But not coffee because I had coffee yesterday and my tummy was so angry.
YES! It’s back, and I like it.
The ingredients have changed, I’ll try to update them later. It now contains dark chocolate, which is nice.
I steeped it with a little coconut milk and a lot of water, on the stove, for about 15 minutes. Then I poured it into my glass and added some of this weird-ass creamer I made with egg, coconut milk, coconut oil, and powdered vanilla beans.
Only, it works. It’s nice and creamy and rich and delicious and oh, I’m so glad I went to Steam and got more of this. Yum.
Having this as a latte. I went and grabbed a couple cans of coconut milk, and a box of coconut cream. I’ll be mixing up my own “coffee” creamer to have with my tea, but I thought I’d use some to indulge a little. :)
1/4 cup or so 60% coconut milk, 200ml extra strong tea, topped up with boiling water. Delicious. And the flavours in this puerh are such that the coconut milk doesn’t overpower. Yay!
Mmm, I got more of this! So good cold brewed. I’ve packed some up in a to-go cup, and am heading out to Steam for a little something-something. There are two teas I need to replenish, and I also need coconut milk.
I might run a few more errands. Not sure, yet. I just need to get out of the house!
Another sample from MissB. :) Another fandom tea, and I’m not part of the fandom. Welcome to Night Vale, I believe…
This smells really chocolatey. I put some coconut milk into this one, just because.
It’s not bad. It’s quite faint chocolate, but I think there would be more flavour if a little sweetener was added to the tea. I think I preferred the blueberry Tardis tea, though. The chocolate just isn’t quite the right chocolate flavour for me.
Umm, thanks MissB, for a tea that smells like Italian pork sausages.
Really. It does. I think it’s the parsley and fennel.
I needed something without caffeine tonight, and this seemed like a good one from my sample box.
Weird. Weird! It’s sweet, and savoury. It’s tempting to add a sprinkle of sage and a pinch of thyme. But I’ll resist. For now.
This is a really interesting tea, and I’m glad I’m getting to try it! I’ll save the other serving for later, and try it with honey. :)
I made up a package of the iced tea last night. Steeped for 4 minutes in 2 cups of water, then added it to another 4 cups of water and stuck it in the fridge overnight.
It’s not bad, although the flavouring is a little fake. It’s really sweet, but the flavourings are better with a little sugar from what I can remember.
I’ll save my other two packets of this for the summer. It’s pretty good, and it’s nice to have an easy iced tea to make.
