671 Tasting Notes
Now we have arrived at a mild tea crisis. I am out of Paris. I love Paris, its a stand by tea, and I can get it easily in the sachets at any time. But I should be trying to minimize my cupboard, and I am indeed trying to do that.
So the question is this- to restock immediately, knowing that I will restock anyway, or keep the total low? I have a great many other good teas to sip on, in the absence of Paris.
So last time I got a Harney order, I added a tagalong of this blend.
I’m begining to think that a strawberries and chocolate blend is not really for me. I’ve got a couple of them now, and I’ll drink them, but I wont be getting them again, I think.
This is, like every H&S blend, smooth. And its got an underlying creaminess that is very pleasant. The strawberry isnt very fruity, if that makes any sense. It makes the chocolate a little more watery (and yes, I know I just said creamy. I am a mass of contradictions today) I’ll consume my tagalong without too many problems.
I have had the ends of this sample in my cupboard for ages, and today is the day to sip it down!
This will be a somewhat unpopular opinion, but I dont really care for this. Dont get me wrong, its a good blend. I havnt found an H&S blend that I havnt found to be a good, well balanced and generally good, so this all comes down to a matter of taste, I suppose. Florence is just not for me. And now the sample is gone! Another tea out of my cupboard.
Curse you, Salted Caramel! This tea is the most frustrating tea I own, as I can never get a consistant flavor. And its never what I imagine a salted caramel tea would taste like.
A five minute steep this morning has given me a somewhat caramelly tea, but not salt. Well, I shall keep my experimentations until I am out of this.
