1626 Tasting Notes
Another tea with… EGGNOG! This evening it’s regular eggnog. But I might have 2 packages of soynog in the fridge as well. Still no almond at the local stores!
Anyways, this is delicious. The plum rooibos is so good anyways, and the added spices from the eggnog just make it so amazing.
It really is plum, too. Baked plum, I think. Reminds me of my mom’s plum cake with the Italian prunes from the tree in the back yard. We’d use plain yeast dough, lay the plums out on the dough, then sprinkle with a small amount of sugar when it came out of the oven. So good. I wish I could do a decent gluten free yeast dough, but I haven’t mastered that yet.
The only mint tea in my cupboard is now, sadly, gone.
I really really liked this one when I was in the mood for mint and didn’t have to worry about minting up my apartment (BFF is seriously allergic).
The mint, the lavender, the deliciousness. Mmm…
Perfect night time treat.
(Eee!!! 201! I’m almost below 200 teas!)
Damnit, Granville Island! This is the SAME TEA as sold by Cuppa’T and probably other Canadian tea shops.
It is actually pretty darn good. Sweet, almondy, with a decent black base. It’s a little astringent, maybe because I ended up with the last bit in the bag for my cup. Or perhaps because of the almonds.
I am enjoying it with milk, and think it might make a pretty good eggnog latte as well. Not sure I’d rush out for more, but I could see this being a decent fall tea.
