293 Tasting Notes
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
I have this steeping in the kitchen and I can smell it from here! :-o It smells really good, okay. The guys are off mailing packages and I am having a nice break. :D
….BEFORE I BAKE BANANA BREAD \o/?
After this cup though I’m gonna have to switch to decaf as I’ve also had a gigantic coffee and a tiny Coke. Bzzt!!
I fucked this up this time and it was really weak, even though I walked away from it for what felt like ages? Maybe it really wasn’t. My brain does not understand the passage of time …or distances. But yeah. Not worried because I was so pleased with it the first two times. ALSO, I was drinking coffee all morning, so that might have had something to do with it. :P
OK, this tea has definitely found a home with me. This is one I could marathon like comfort tea – in fact in the second cup I added brown sugar and milk as recommended and YUMMM. But even without, this is like a beautiful tea version of pumpkin pie. I like it both ways, but it’s really decadent with things added. OM NOM NOM NOM.
It really does taste like pumpkin. You can really smell the squash!
