1807 Tasting Notes
So my health scare is a series of good news bad news. The good news, the doctors don’t think I’m in any danger for long term health consequences! The bad news is that I still have the infection, even after the first round of antibiotics. So I’m on a new course of treatment, and have to check in again in three more weeks. Eeek. I just hope it all gets over with soon.
So I’m trying to be extra nice to myself, and this was a good way to start this day.
Its very mild, very creamy, very nice indeed.
The weather reports tell me we’re going to have a major storm today. Well, I’ll be ready, I love rain!
So, because I love a theme, I grabbed for this.
It smells effervescent in the tin, light and fruity and fun. It brews up a bit heavier than it smells, but its still a good blend of fruit flavors. A touch of brightness on a winter morning.
I’ve been having computer problems this weekend, and have finally learned how addicted I am to the dratted computer. But I’m back! For unknown reasons things have started to work again. So here we are.
I love peppermint. I go a bit nuts this time of year, as I deeply, deeply love peppermint, and peppermint black teas make my heart sing. So when I saw this, I lept on it like some sort of pouncing cat.
The first thing I notice, when its brewed, its opaque! It looks like tea with milk already in it, which is an unexpected turn of affairs. Its probably the white chocolate in the blend, that creates that effect.
Its a very, very creamy cup, with a hint of vanilla and subtle mint to it. Its really nice. The mint is not as strong as in Santa’s Secret, but its still enjoyable.
I’m glad I got some of this to try!
Holy lumberjacks, but has this got maple in it. Not the candy sweet, sugared maple, but the proper stuff out of a tree. Its rich and thick tasting, and not at all a frivolous, light flavor.
I get mostly this dark maple and bergamot out of this blend. I really have to focus hard to taste the tea base, and I can’t pin down the vanilla aspect.
I’m going to have to drink this more to get my rating, but its certainly a fascinating blend.
The newest tea to be brought to the office, to be aggressively drunk until it is gone, is this guy.
This tea is so disappointing! It smells so wonderful, and it tastes so bland. Come on, where is my apple cider tea at?
I tried double bagging it today, and it, or the lenth I let it brew, made it all rather sour, which is unfortunate.
I shall try to drink a great deal of it, and then never bring it back!
