Goodbye pancake breakfast! You were lovely with cookies! (I made sneaky cookies yesterday, full of proteinful seeds and whatnot, muahahaha <- sneaky mom laugh!)
231 Tasting Notes
Last bit of this yesterday, just before our power went out (for the longest bit – it went out a LOT yesterday, stupid wind) which was really nice timing. So I got to sit in the sun with cats & lovely tea for my powerless afternoon.

I was always like, what’s with all this assam talk? Pff, boring.
THIS TEA IS SO GOOD. Mmmmmmalty.
wellll, I oversteeped this because I was too busy doing dishes and listening to podcasts to bother messing with my phone for a timer… whoops. Oh well. I’m gonna hit lvl 18 at getyedone.com today >:D
Didn’t ruin the tea though! It’s not one of my faves from 52 but it’s great in the morning. mmmm, mapley.
I made this cold-brewed because I thought it’d appeal to K. Strangely, the orange mostly disappears so it’s like a light cinnamon thing. It’s good but not my fave. K did like it, though!
Nothing like a nice simple & organic mint tea, cold-brewed. OHHHHYEAH. Working in the yard this morning, it’s my reward. ;)
Adoooored this. It’s quite pretty. Tastes to my novice buds just like (my fave/essential) Zen Tea Jasmine Dragon Pearls… plan on resteeping later when I’m feeling lazy.

When you oversteep this, all you can taste is black tea. Which is not ALL bad, but. FYI.
Cold-brewed this and K adored it. I had the last of it this morning – yum! He likes to add sugar + lemon to his which I don’t understand but whatever :P :P
Now I have mint cold-brewing… which I loooove.
OHNOOOOOO. Last bit of this here while we watch Elementary (which is so so so good, as always)… I miss this tea already! I think it’s a necessary tea for my cupboard!
Three steeps of this today – it’s nice to have something easy you can just add hot water to with no stopping to clean out the infuser. ;)
Hmm this one doesn’t have as much vanilla creaminess as anti v-day. It’s settled, for my peace of mind. I prefer the other but this tea is not exactly a hardship. :P
Need caffeine that also feels like a sugar rush this morning since I’m up early for some reason and I have to get to work work work on the python course I’m taking. I love this tea a lot. It’s always a good eeeease into the day tea.
In other newsss, I bought a nice jug yesterday with the fruit/tea infusers & the ice thinger for my cold brewing. I have a mango black tea in there (Murchies and one of my least faves brewed hot, but it’s reaally nice cold. There’s a few in my collection I can’t wait to try cold. Now that I don’t have to try to pour from an old pickle jar :P or use a saucer as a lid to my french press. JUGS. SO HANDY!)
Basically anything I chose tonight was going to be not Cantaloupe Cream enough so I chose this nutty tea that I was kinda shrug about trying. But I quite liked it. A lot better than Forever Nuts and the Della Terra Honey Nut Crunch (?)because the apple is not as pronounced and it’s not oversweet (I have a Almond Marzipan rooibos that I like because it’s nuttish, but it’s also sweet so I’m rarely in the mood for it)… I like the foggy look of it, too. And Brazil nuts! Anyway, not a tea that I need in my cupboard, but a good one to try – thanks cavocorax! Gonna try for a long resteep.
eta – resteep was GREAT until I forgot it, wandering off
Huh. Okay. So far my verdict is “WEIRD.”
Am I doing this wrong? It tastes/smells kinda… cereal-y. Like rice puffs and vinegar. boggled
Flavourful resteep! It seems like hot cantaloupe should be Wrong, but it definitely isn’t.
A.MA.ZING. Okay, I definitely must get some of this for myself. Thanks cavocorax, for once again being a horrible person ;P :P :P
Seriously, this is so good! So light and fresh and tasty and simple and YUM.
SO GOOD. Last bit of this, goodbyes are sad. :P :P
Lots of raspberries in this! It was good, too. I am going to resteep it later and see how that goes ;)
I didn’t really get the sponge cake part?
At first I thought this was like the cinnamon challenge (you know, eat a tablespoon of cinnamon straight, go on, I dare you) and could not be done but.. it grows on you? I think that people who love cinnamon hearts (Lauren) should love this tea.
I think I understeeped this because it’s far too weak. Or maybe I just rrrrreally want a coffee right now. :P
Needs more caramel! ;)
