828 Tasting Notes
Aha! My last Black Friday-Cyber Monday sale came in, and a tin of this was among this. I was feeling extra festive, which is my only explanation, considering that I have mixed feelings about white teas. That and it was on sale.
Wow. I dont know what I was expecting, but I really like this. Its like spices and almond blended into cream. Hooray!
Glad I got some sipdowns in earlier today, as I’ve certainly caught back up in a hurry.
Aha, the early shift is done, so I can take a break and brew up some tea.
I was staring at the new flavors I havnt tried yet, but I picked this up instead. Its a cold morning, and this toasty tea would be good. And also it would be a sipdown, so that I could start chipping away at the damage done to my cupboard by the amazing amount of tea I have aquired.
This is a very pleasant tea, but not remarkable. I still wish it had just a hint more “sugar” in the “sugar and spice”. But its just the thing for today.
My Thursday morning quick cup of tea.
For bagged, the mint comes through very well. It was an excelent accompaniment to toast with fig butter on it, which served as breakfast. I like a bagged tea first thing on a Thursday morning, as I am always in a hurry, and do not have the time to sit and sip away.
After an evening of fencing, after a long day hunched over a ledger, a person sometimes needs a comfortable woolly sweater and a cup of sweetness.
I love having Comoro back in my cupboard, in sachet form. I can just pop one in a mug, add water, and be rewarded with a nice cup of tea, to sit and read with. Just the thing!
This was the one in my Simpson and Vail order that I was most excited about, it and creme brulee.
So I steeped it up this morning with excitment. A tasty cookie!
Well, sort of. The nutty flavor is very nutty, and a little bit bitter. I do not taste the sugar component of the almond sugar cookie. Hmm.
Its not bad, but its dissapointing, and, as usual, I am finding that I do not like the black tea base. It tastes “dusty” to me, if that makes sense.
Well, it wont be a problem to drink, but I wont get it again.
Its the holidays, and the secret to this is to double bag it. Its weak by itself, in my opinion, but tonight, with two bags, its a nicely gingerbreaded cup. And I’m someone who takes her gingerbread very seriously. I love ginger, beyond what some people might call reason. And add it to a cake/bread thing is just heaven.
Double bagged turns this into a spicy cup with a lot of sweetness, and all without a single spoonful of sugar.
Adjusting my original tasting note for the double bag revelation.
This smells lovely! I opened up my packet and took a deep breath. Ah.
This brews up nicely, and is a nice flavor. A soft flavor, but with a good vanilla complexity.
Thats what I like in a vanilla tea, some complexity to them, not like someone has just dumped a bottle of extract over the top of the dry leaf.
This will be enjoyable to drink.
