898 Tasting Notes
This has been on my wishlist for a while, so I was delighted when JustJames sent me this.
I’ve had orange spice teas before, and I realy like them. But I’d never tried anything like this before.
It tastes like one of those chocolate oranges, though the chocolate is almost subconcious. If I focus, I cant taste the chocolate, but if I relax, the chocolate orange just waves over me. Delicious.
Well, this has decided it. I’m going to keep this on my to-order list. Yum.
A coworker gave me a gift today, a huge mug patterned with tea pots and some vanilla rooibos tea. So I am breaking out the mug to brew a double batch of this. I have such a lot of tea, that, at the moment, I am going to chip away at the sipdownable quantities of tea.
And this is a nice afternoon cup of tea.
How sweet! I love that coworker, she’s my fav. How very kind of her.
I remembered only as I was steeping this sample sachet, that I had planned to keep this till New Years Morning. Ah well, I have lots of other wonderful teas to drink then.
I am dragging today, and have to finish wrapping gifts, and also go to a party tonight. So I need energy, and this beautiful tea is the way to do it. I need another tin of this….
What I like about this, is that is not just all peppermint sweetness. Of course, I love some peppermint sweetness, but this has a lovely balancing note of savory. Is that the popcorn?
The upshot is that this is a winner in my book. I might compare it to Santas Secret later today. I feel like they are simaler, and I want to try a back to back taste test.
Curse you early morning! You ripped me cruelly from an awesome dream about Shakespeare and suchlike. It was awesome, and unfortunate to have been pulled away from it.
Thats the sad thing about dreams, is that I never have them again. I dont have repeat. Curses, I wanted to see how this one ended.
Well, a cup of sweetness to soften the blow and ease me into my day.
