955 Tasting Notes
The quest to get these S&V teas gone continues.
I’ve given up on this ever tasting like Creme Brulee. This does not have the crisp sugary quality, or the smooth custard taste of a proper creme brulee.
Instead, I still get the mysterious coconut, and today is just a bit bitter. Meh.
Well, thats what I’ve got. I’ll get it drunk, and free up my tin for new and better brews.
Was in dramatic need of tea today, so stopped for a cup of this during lunch.
I’ve had this before, and was stuck by how juicy this tea is. And in a very good way. Its lush and fruity, without seeming like some kind of hot punch. Just what the doctor ordered on this long afternoon.
C’mon, when is Saturday going to get here?
Oof, this was a tough morning section.
I have returned home, before a busy afternoon of errands, to drink tea and have my favorite mid-morning snack, of an english muffin with local honey on it, paired with the tea.
This is what I grabbed today, not so much out of a love of this, but more out of the desire to get rid of it.
Its not bitter, or bad, but I do not get the vanilla in the amount I want. Its the slightest suggestion of aftertaste, rather than a full and flavorful vanilla cup.
Well, a quiet morning before off the races again.
My stomach hurts a little this morning. And I’ve got my extra early day, plus a whole lot of work. Bleh.
Save me, pure mint.
This is an especially good bagged tea. A very smooth base, and a noticeable amount of mint. Excelent.
Still, I cant wait till I can get back home and drink a proper pot of tea.
A very enthusiastic new fencer has bashed me in the hand, so that hurts.
Its been a long day. There was a point in the afternoon when I would have trampled over my desk for a cup of tea.
So, now, exsausted, hand throbbing, I am drinking this.
I like rooibos in a sachet. It makes the whole rooibos cleanup process that much easier.
We are in a drought in my neck of the woods, which is a massive problem, as its farmland around here. But today it smells like there may be rain.
To help encourage the atmosphere, I am drinking this, my favorite winter tea. And, if we are lucky, we shall have some rain around here as well.
One of the teas from my sisters generous Christmas gift was this.
Boy does it ever smell as advertised. Figgy, full of lavender, and warm.
Its pretty good, actually. The lavender is not too soapy, the fig balancing it out and grounding it out, and giving it a nice earthiness to it.
Hopefully my sister has some more of this, as I want to steal a little bit more. Its not an every day or even every week tea, but its nice for a very specific craving and mood.
But for now, a sipdown of this.
I enjoyed this more today than I did the first time I tried it. Very fruity, with an undeniable tropical quality.
I can always tell, with H&S blends, that its good tea. Even if its not my preference,I can tell. Such is the case here. Its good tea, but its not my good tea, if that makes sense.
Still, glad to have tried it!
