1809 Tasting Notes
This is all finished now, and I must say that it was not memorable.
I do not particularly like either white tea or chestnuts, but this came free with some other teas I got, so I decided to give it a go.
And it was just entirely weak. I never even got a hint of chestnut in it, which is too bad, and the white tea base was very weak and bland.
Ah well, a sipdown now!
A couple of years ago, when I first came in contact with this tea, I was completely besotted. I found it to be creamy and wonderful, and enjoyed my tin with enthusiasm.
Well, almost without me noticing, my enthusiasm for this tea has waned. I am no longer besotted, and now have an elderly tin of this to drink.
Its not bad. I don’t hate it or anything, but I’m not particularly impressed anymore. Its no longer a creamy dream, and I’m not quite sure if its because its an elderly tin, or if my tastes have just changed.
Either way, its now only ok. Thats alright, I can deal with ok.
Why do I still have this? Its never really wowed me, despite my hope that it would. I think Lupicia does fabulous fruit flavors, but this is just not ringing any bells.
I had a cup of it this afternoon, as a break from cleaning and working, and it was easy to drink, but the flavors have paled considerable since I got it, and its time to drink it down.
Ahh, home with my own teas. Hurrah!
Its a day off my normal 8-5 job, but I’ve got a lot of freelance stuff to do today. Its going to be fairly busy! Lots of tea to help me through the day.
I know that this is perhaps an overly sweet tea, and I know its not everyones thing, but I’m glad to have it in my cupboard. I love this sort of blend, it just makes me happy. And on a cold morning like today, it suits me well.
Happy New Year, Steepster!
I love New Years, I love the thrill of new years, new goals, and new adventures!
I plan on drinking lots and lots of tea this year. I’m starting with a cup of this, which my significant other has on hand, but is not my favorite. No worries, I have lots of wonderful tea waiting for me in 2017.
Whew, but I’ve been busy over the last week and a bit, which means no tasting notes. And I’m also just off a course of meds that I was instructed not to drink too much caffine during. So, that limited my tea drinking, I’m afraid.
And I’m back with a vengeance!
I’ve been drinking this at work, as it meets all my best criteria, of bagged, boring, and ignorable. And I have finally killed it!
I will not be buying this again, it was a huge disappointment.
