379 Tasting Notes
I am breaking a general guideline and drinking a caffinated tea after dinner time. If I suffer afterwards, so be it.
I’m trying to be brave and actually steep my Davids teas for the longer terms. Its yeilding interesting results. The longer steep on this really brings out the strawberry notes. It makes for an interesting blend.
For some reason, my morning sipdown cup of this is extra gingery today. This makes me very happy.
Hurrah, its Friday!
My last pot of this. Drinkable, but not very amazing. What is a Damask rose anyway?
Well, thats the end of this. And now I’ve got the pretty tin. Dont know what I’ll do with it, but I have it!
I had a pot of this in the morning. It was very nice. An elegant rose tea, I always think.
I need more caffine free desert style teas. I like this one, but more is always a good idea. Any suggestions for sweet evening teas?
Its in the 90’s today. Its just barely fall. Naturally I decide that this would be the perfect time to try this Christmas tea.
It certainly smells like a holiday fair, all cinnamon and clove-y. Nice smell, very atmosphiric.
Somethings gone a bit wrong in the taste portion of this. I cant make out what the flavor actually is. I get a clove-y after taste, but the subtler flavors hinted in the smell are not there.
Thanks to Josie Jade for sending this my way.
Will I ever get tired of Paris? No, I dont think so.
I just noticed that I’ve whittled my cupboard down enough that it now perfectly matches the number of teas on my wishlist! Wait……. thats not really a good thing, is it? Lol, the desire for tea is a powerful one!
Sipdown. I really do like this. Its quite good, full bodied and flavorful. I can get it fairy easily, so at some point I will welcome it back into my cupboard.
Double bagged this tonight, to try and coax out a little more flavor. I do get a slightly stronger sense of the cookie with this double bagged, but its still mild and not overwhelming.
Its in no way an offensive tea, but it is underwhelming.
