1620 Tasting Notes
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.
Lunch is packed, breakfast is made, I have a mug of tea. Yes, things are going well this first morning I have to get to work at a decent time! Or are they… ? Uhh, no. I’m still in my PJs!
Today I’m having roasted sweet potatoes and eggs with a mug of this tea. Mmm, tulsi. Mmm, cinnamon. Nice and relaxing, and yet caffeinated for those mornings after the nights you don’t sleep well. I’m going to have to make another steep of this for my travel mug. And also possibly have an Americano once I get to campus.
Finished up my homebrew chamomile blend, and made a new one! The old one had orange peel in it (I picked it out…), which is something I’m trying to avoid right now, so the new one is:
- lemon myrtle
- marshmallow root
Pretty random, right? Well, it’s really tasty too. SUCCESS! Tea is great. :)
