1210 Tasting Notes
My last cup of this. I shall savor it.
When I first got this, I was very curious. Black tea? Understood. Mint? Sure. But together? I was curious and a bit suspicious about the whole arrangement.
The verdict is that I like it quite a bit. While not at all chocolaty, it reminds me of a mint chocolate. The mint is there, a presence, but it does not overpower the base, instead existing with it in harmony.
I’ve enjoyed my time with this tea.
My favorite chamomile has got to be this. Is delicate, with a somewhat creamy finish, and a delicate breath of light… floral is not right, but theres something very fresh about it.
Why didn’t I drink this more during the summer? It would have suited very well…. but it will be a gorgeous cup of springtime some winter evening.
What is this? Overcast? Slightly damp? Could there be rain today?! I hope so.
Theres nothing explicitly “summer” about this tea, but somehow I feel like its a warmer weather tea, rather than a cooler one.
I’m making a list of the autumn teas I’m going to order. I cant wait. Its time for pumpkin tea!
I have fenced for the evening, which was good exercise. There are two ways to be during fencing, you are either the pin or the pincushion. Today I was the pin more than I was the cushion, which is an excellent way to be.
Cup of tea as a reward. This is a nobrainer. I’m always in the mood for vanilla, so this is a dependable and enjoyable cup.
