1496 Tasting Notes
A sample from Shmiracles! Thank you. :)
Sadly, I find the Adagio lapsang blends to be almost stomach-churningly like drinking soaked campfire ash. So, uh, not for me. It was pretty smooth, but the flavour just did not work at all.
Maybe if it was 1/16 lapsang and mostly the other blends I’d like it more, but as it stands I had to dump it. :( I hate doing that with tea.
I tried it with maple syrup and milk.
This… is odd.
A sample from MissB. And now I’ve read your review, I totally get why you dispersed it. Haha.
It’s hibiscus. And I’m getting a lot of mint. So weird. I had to add some honey, without it was terrible. And even now it’s not super great. I guess it’d be good if I were actually sick instead of just run down and possibly coming down with something, but it’s not for me at all.
(I mean, peppermint and hibiscus? What?!)
Had the last bit of this from the SSTTB this morning, with a splash of milk. I still quite like this one, I do find that when taken occasionally, bergamot and lavender do go together quite well. :)
I spent the day out with my mom, and did some, umm, shopping. I got a yoga towel (it’s sticky! and also it’s more grippy than my mat, so I don’t slide everywhere!), nail polish (Spa Ritual! Woo!), tights, 4 t-shirts ($5 each, so yeah), a sweatshirt material maxi skirt, and groceries. Haha. Oh man, I didn’t need to spend all that money. But most of that was on my to-buy list, so I feel pretty good about it.
Today, with cream.
A little “flavoured” tasting, as in I am getting a tiny bit of chemical taste. But still, I really like the flavour combo. It’s more earthy steeped at 212F than my usual 195F (I do 195 because my kettle holds that temp for 30 minutes.)
Puerh is definitely a good thing to have with the slowcooker ribs I had for breakfast today. :)
A new tea from the lovely MissB.
This is not really what I was expecting, and unfortunately I don’t really like it that much. There’s a LOT of cinnamon in it. A LOT. Wow. In fact, where’s the chocolate? There’s cinnamon, a hint of vanilla, and a strong stevia aftertaste.
Dry it smelled really good and balanced, but steeped, I’m afraid I don’t care for it at all. If it were cinnamon and vanilla, with no chocolate or stevia, I think it would be a lot better.
MissB is AMAZING, y’all! She came out my way to meet up and brought me this tea all the way from San Francisco!
And the tea is not disappointing. So delicious. Even for us melon-haters, it’s SO good. :)
