1901 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! Thanks so much to VariaTEA for introducing me to this company. Definitely need more of this and Ombrelle de Papier (If I got that right!).
I steeped at 195 instead of 185, and it’s not ruined! I was actually concerned.
So good. Rose cherry candy yum.
No time to read today again (sorry!) as I need to head out to get my hair cut (I’ve been cutting it myself…) and buy teas for other people. Let’s see if I can avoid getting anything for me. :)
I AM DRINKING DEREK HALE. ALERT. I AM DRINKING DEREK HALE.
Thank you so much for sharing, Shmiracles! :D
I totally underleafed this, and I don’t care. Just 1 tsp for 16 oz, because of the tightly rolled gunpowder.
This is a neat combo of flavours and I like it. Yes, I do. (Oh goodness, just wait, I’ll be adding an Adagio order to my list of orders to make. Halp!) A darker spicier (as in it has spices not that it’ll burn your tongue) toffee/caramel tea that is surprisingly light due to the green/black combo.
This is really interesting! Thanks, MissB!
Sadly the licorice/liquorice does ruin it for me. I like the orange and vanilla for sure. Some honey was added to see if I could moderate the licorice aftertaste. Sadly, nope. It’s way too much for me.
Thanks for giving me a chance to try the tea, but it is definitely not something I want to drink again!
My last little bit!
So of course I’m having it hot on a bright sunny day that’s apparently the beginning of Spring. So yay!
It’s pretty good, but there was a bit of dust that I got into my scoop and ended up in my steeping basket, so it’s more marine-y than usual.
Definitely a tea I need to get again. I like it more than the Sublime, I think. The cherry is just… yum.
This is a tea from MissB! :)
It’s, umm. Guayusa. So I think it’s kinda gross.
I added a whollop of honey, and as it’s cooled it’s become more lemon-honey tisane… but there’s still this guayusa flavour in the background that I really really don’t like.
So… Thank you for sharing some so I could try it, but I think maybe no guayusa teas for me in the future.
I’m thirsty, so I’m making this iced.
I know, I’m weird, whatever. It should go well with my saskatoon berry sorbet.
It works well enough, although it’s quite rooibosy. Oh wells. I’ll probably still manage to drink it. Definitely prefer this tea hot.
(1 tbsp in 12 oz for 5 minutes, over ice and cool water to 1 litre)
I had this tea this morning. And then I had a latte. And then I came home and slept for over 5 hours.
So, uhh, well done caffeine.
Love this tea as usual. Tulsi and cinnamon = amazing to me, at least this tulsi and this cinnamon. Hope I’ll be able to get more when I run out!
(No time to check notes tonight. Maybe tomorrow? IDK. So busy, still not feeling great.)
