291 Tasting Notes
First christmas tea out of the “sweet indulgences” set :D
(Even if I hadn’t wrapped this present, I’d still have smelled it a mile away!)
Anyway, I was barely conscious but this was nice! I’d say 80, but I’m waiting til next cup. K had some with me.
Had this tonight after a disastrous Red Velvet Cake x Lapsang Souchong accident (uncool, UNCOOL). The last two times I had this, I messed it up (underleafing, maybe? probably oversteeping; let’s be honest) and I was starting to doubt my original rating but nope – still accurate! Yum yum yum.
Whoops, forgot I was steeping something again. This tea smells so wonderful. I’ve been running all over the house today and am now having a kickass procrastination computer break. WITH TEA.
I will probably reorder this when I run out because yum, coconut. Of course, I have 2 other coconut teas coming and David’s Tea Cocomint is my favourite tea on top of that, so maybe I don’t need to. :P It is yummy though. The fruity-spicy.
I totally forgot about this when it was steeping. Whoops.
Tart apple cider. I’m regretting not making Alpine Punch now, but this is still good.
This reminds me of licorice jellybeans because it has a real sweetness to it, and the anise is the most attention-grabbing flavour (and then light cinnamon)… perfect after-dinner tea. The only thing that bothers me is that it’s really hard to measure it out or judge how much to use because it’s such huge chunks of things.
This is such a wonderful warming tea. I love how it just kicks around in my mouth with no rush to leave, oh so nice and smokey goodness.
I resteeped this, too, which I rarely do & it’s still wonderful.
Drinking this with milk and sugar because I feel all post-pizza-y. And whiny, like I deserve a coffee. But I have been drinking too much coffee! And now Kelly is on 2 weeks holiday to bring me coffees all the time… oh noooooooooo /o\
I think this is my favourite winter/xmas tea blend. I just love the soft noggy smell (way more than actual egg nog)..
Haven’t logged much tea lately because I haven’t HAD much tea lately! Has been all Timmy’s coffee and colas and gingerbread spice lattes from Starbux :P but I’m enjoying a well-earned break right now. New beds tomorrow means moving all the beds and cleaning everything TODAY. Sigh.
Oh hey, this tea has a really nice egg noggy aftertaste, too. :D
