Sipdown of this one too. Wow.
This is an old sample from CrowKettle, so I know the tea isn’t at it’s prime. Still, it’s so interesting. With the grapefruit flavour and age, it’s almost savoury. In With Open Eyes, the same base tea is sweet and buttery.
I like it both ways, although green teas are not my favourite, especially when savoury. The dragonwell that Butiki stocks is just really nice.
I think I’ll add the tiniest bit of salt to this, and savour it that way. :)
OMG, tea people. This is so freaking cool with salt. Just a tiny bit. Try it.
Sipdown. I have no idea how many teas I have left in my physical cupboard. Maybe I should update that this evening.
As I wait for this tea to steep, I’m sipping on a lovely second steep of the Keemun I had this morning. So good. I need to investigate more keemun teas, because they really work for me.
I massively overleafed this because there wasn’t enough left for another “real” cup. Just a tsp or so. Thankfully that doesn’t seem to have hurt this tea at all – in fact, it may have helped. With a generous addition of milk, this is actually a really nice, comforting mug of clove-and-spice tea. I’m surprised I like this one so much, but I do. If it came back, I’d get another 24g, but I’m not too upset it’s not available. There are plenty of other teas to try!
Thanks SO MUCH, Dexter3657.
This is SO good. I wouldn’t call it smokey, really. Rather I would call it complex and rich and sweet and excellent with maple syrup.
Definitely on my “to buy” list.
Yep, I still really like this one. It is soooo citrusy! Love it.
I’m drinking a huge mug of it with a spoon of honey. Sadly I only have 2 cups worth left.
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 this one at lunch. One scoop, 16 oz warm almond milk. So delicious.
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 had this one earlier this evening. Steeped up nice and strong with brown sugar and lots of milk. I really like this tea, and I’m so thankful to CrowKettle for sharing what she had. :)
