1667 Tasting Notes
I remember this from the last time Lupicia sent me this as a sample. Oh boy, in the sachet the strawberry smell is perfect, with a coco note that is quite strong.
Brewed this effect is lost. Its a lightly chocolate, lightly strawberry tea. Nothing to write home about.
Drat! I wish the liquid could cash the smells checks.
I realized the other day that I’m feeling some small amount of stress about the amount of tea I currently have, and its starting to edge in on my enjoyment of those teas. I’m starting to think about un seasonal flavors and sipdown potential, rather than “ooh, I like this one!”
I’m going to try to relax a little about it. For the time being, I’ve got a tea buying ban on, and that helps, and I’m looking to work on the teas that are “autumnal” as it turns into summer.
That said, this is still a lovely pumpkin tea. Rich and layered, with a good balance of spices and squash. I’ll certainly have this again in Autumn, but I’m working on drinking it down now. Not quite there, but soon!
Tea of the morning!
Monday just rolls around faster and faster every week, doesnt it?
I’ve got a nice day in the office, though. No one else is here! I can actually get some serious work on long standing projects when I don’t have others interrupting me with smaller and more time sensitive projects. Hooray!
This is such a creamy tea. Its one of those teas that serve as a warm bath for the soul. Rich and tasty.
Gah! Why does it take so long for me to get a single tasting note in? I drank this this morning, which was one full work day ago. Sheesh.
I like this, its an uncomplicated fruit and black blend, something I really like. Its not an especially memorable or exciting fruit/black blend, but there are days when simple and too the point is exactly what you want. Bingo, Black Current. Keep on being dependable!
