1063 Tasting Notes
Right now, this is pretty darn good tea. I’m not sure I’d want more, but it’s so delicious after that piece of gluten free cheesecake – the one my BFF left in my fridge.
It’s sweet, malty, a little chocolatey. I wouldn’t have guessed it’s flavoured, though. There’s not enough chocolate there for that.
Thank you, Sil. I appreciate being able to try this one!
I finished this one today as well. Sadly I only drank half of it before I came home and passed out on my bed while reading fanfic. Would mate at dinner be a Really Bad Idea™? It feels like it might.
Oh well. I’ll finish my travel mug and cook something delicious. :)
Thanks, MissB, you are a rock star. And once we arrange pickup for that other parcel, I’ll have even more of this!
Umm, oops? Sipdown! (248)
I’ll have to go get more later this week. They close at 7, and since they’re across a bus zone, I don’t like going down there before 6:30. :/
Oh well. Delicious as always. Today I added 1/2 tsp maple sugar to my mug. Mmm. Mapley goodness. I think this could be really nice mixed 50/50 with a smoky keemun or something. The sweetness from the maple, the smokiness from the other tea. The base of this is a little icy/frosty feeling, which is neat.
(Don’t worry, Courtney, I’ll get more this week so I can send you some! I’ll see about snagging a couple other samples for you as well, since I’ll be there. :) )
I decided to cold steep this sample from VariaTEA for some reason. Big mistake.
Something about it was just way too floral and soapy. It sort of smelled orangey but not really. It was also somewhat sour because of the rosehips.
Sadly I don’t have any left to try hot, but reading the reviews, I’m not sure I’m missing a whole lot.
Well, I’m glad I tried it. Thank you. :)
This really is a good, inexpensive, chicory based tea. It’s more chocolate than chai masala, but that’s OK.
Definitely something I’d consider getting again, although Steam Tea House’s After Dark is really yummy, and more full of spice flavours.
2 bags for 16 oz. A dash of coconut cream.
