898 Tasting Notes
First review? No pressure.
I got this as a gift to myself, and have been saving it for today. To all of you who celebrate this, Happy Christmas! For all of you who do not, happy Wednesday!
This smells very nice in the pretty holiday tin. Orange-y and sweet. And it looks so pretty, with the petals. I swear I even spied some golden shimmery bits, but that could just be imagination. And big chunks or orange peel.
Its very citrusy, with an after taste of spices. I keep looking around for the orange in my cup.
Enjoyable, I must say.
I will have time for some more tea, and then off to my parents house, where I may not get tea for a while. (humph, coffee-drinkers).
The best of the season to you, Steepster.
When I was growing up Christmas Eve-Eve was a thing between my brother and me. I’m sure we drove everyone nuts, running around and making a fuss over it being Christmas Eve-Eve.
So, in the spirit of that tradition, I’ll sip some of this tea.
I’m glad I’ve got a decent amount of this, as its quite good. I love mint, and the creamy underflavor is very nice.
Per my new influx of tea, I’ve decided that its time to sip down some more tea. I only had a little bit of Cookie left, so that decided me.
This is a nice tea, with the butter cookie flavor. But its also a little delicate, so a bitter note comes through sometimes. Thats a little unfortunate, as I can be an agressive steeper.
This is one of those teas that I might restock someday, but not with anything resembling urgency.
Ah tea! And off I go to my day!
Just got back from Christmas with my sister, who is my equally tea loving sister. And, what a surprise, an egg cart with 12 unique teas was my gift from her. Eeep, 12 new teas to add to the cupboard. I am back up to around 70, and all but one of my new teas are things that I have never tried. So its time to work on chipping away the existing teas. I dont want any tea to languish in my cupboard, so I’m working on sipping down some older teas, and some of the meh cups.
Eeee! So much tea. Its wonderful.
