898 Tasting Notes
I’ve been curious about this one for ages, so I picked some up when I was in Lupicia last week.
It smells lovely, and it brews up to be a butter cookie. Almost short bread like, I must say, buttery and rich.
Theres a vauge coffee note in it, which I may find a little problematic. I’m going to keep tinkering with the steep time on this, but generally I like it!
Fabulous start to the morning, by walking directly into my desk chair. Now I have seriously stubbed my foot. Ow! And I’ve gotta go to work. I’ll wear some supportive shoes. I am very clumsy.
Its getting cold around here, which is delightful. I love the cold weather. Love it to bits. And this tea is wonderful for a cold fall morning.
As I was scooping this out, I saw the bottom of the tin. Eeee. Surely I havent drunk it that fast? Nope, nevermind, yes I have.
A cup of this at lunchtime, from Peets directly. I dont often buy tea to drink during my lunch breaks, but its feeling brisk and cold today, and I could use some tea. (I could also use a thermos so I can make tea on the go myself. I should do that.)
With this I can really taste the difference between loose leaf and bagged tea. Loose is superior in the subtleties and complexities of flavor. This bagged cup, while very good, lacks some of the depth of the thing.
Well, never look a gift cup of tea in the mouth, eh? Er, actually that makes no sense, does it. Move along, nothing to see here, folks.
I’ve already got Paris and Boston in my cupboard, and I’ve had Florence and Tokyo, so I figured I’d round out the city collection with New York.
This is a combo of things I do like, chamomile, ginger and pepermint. And its pretty nice, a mild tea, which will suit very well on days when I need a gentle tea, or something to sooth my stomach.
