1809 Tasting Notes
Tea of the morning.
Sheesh I was tired last night, and though I slept like the proverbial log, I still woke up exsausted. So much so, that I understeeped this!
Well, it didn’t actually harm the flavors, so I picked my tea well this frosty morning! Its a really lovely fig flavor, rich and warm and gooey. I do love figs, so this has been a happy tea purchase.
I wish I had some now, in fact.
This smells magnificent in the tin. Citrus and ginger, yum.
I think, brewed, that this one might be a touch fiddly, as I’ve got a bitter under taste today. I may have the mess around with the brew times.
But, bitterness aside, its a really nice combination of flavors, and I like it. Its fresh and zippy, excellent for a cold morning like today.
I’m not quite sure what I think about this. The flavors are interesting, and taken one at a time I enjoy them. But I’m not quite convinced about the blend of all of them. Its a little mis matchy to me. Hmm.
I’m really satisfied with the amount I have of this. I have a few more sachets, but not enough to completely frustrate me, if I don’t really like it.
I’ve been saying that more experimentation is needed for a lot of teas, but its totally true. I need to play around a bit more.
Time for one last cup of tea before I pop off to my parents house for Christmas lunch and presents! (I confess to being excited about that. I love presents).
This isn’t a classic holiday flavor, being light and fruity, but I can’t fault it, as I do love a nice light and fruity blend. Good stuff.
Off I pop!
This year, there was no decision at all on what would be the tea on Christmas morning. This is what it was, this is what I wanted, so this is what I had!
I had fun. My boyfriend, who is at his familys house out of state, skyped me, and so I was “there” as they opened stockings and chatted. I got to sit and chat with them, drinking tea, and relaxing.
I’ll go to my own family later this afternoon, and chill out with all of them.
For those having a holiday today, I hope its great!
