1162 Tasting Notes
I woke up with yesterdays headache still floating around the brain. Drat.
So I’m trying to brew up this, in the hopes that sweetness will help.
Coconut? What on Earth? I am tasting coconut, and a smaller custard note, but mostly coconut. Drat! I love creme brulee, but have distinctly less interest in coconut.
Hmm, well, I will play with this.
I was a little worried when I opened this. I was smelling something almost medicinal. But brewed up it lost that edge, and smelled magnificent!
Wow. Could this be any creamier? Its like a minty milkshake, in tea form. I had my doubts, but I’ve changed my mind. How fantastic!
I might stock up, before this tea goes the way of the dodo. This gets a stamp of approval.
12 days to Christmas. Theres a very funny song from the Musical She Loves Me about it being 12 days till Christmas, and the the madness from there.
So, time for more Holiday tea.
Yum. Its minty and creamy, and it has my vote of confidence. I do wonder what purpose the popcorn serves, other than charm and nostalgia. (Can one have nostalgia for something you’ve never done? I’ve never made a popcorn garland….)
The upshot is, I’m enjoying this. I want to try it back to back with Santa’s Secret to see what I think.
Aha! My last Black Friday-Cyber Monday sale came in, and a tin of this was among this. I was feeling extra festive, which is my only explanation, considering that I have mixed feelings about white teas. That and it was on sale.
Wow. I dont know what I was expecting, but I really like this. Its like spices and almond blended into cream. Hooray!
Glad I got some sipdowns in earlier today, as I’ve certainly caught back up in a hurry.
Aha, the early shift is done, so I can take a break and brew up some tea.
I was staring at the new flavors I havnt tried yet, but I picked this up instead. Its a cold morning, and this toasty tea would be good. And also it would be a sipdown, so that I could start chipping away at the damage done to my cupboard by the amazing amount of tea I have aquired.
This is a very pleasant tea, but not remarkable. I still wish it had just a hint more “sugar” in the “sugar and spice”. But its just the thing for today.
My Thursday morning quick cup of tea.
For bagged, the mint comes through very well. It was an excelent accompaniment to toast with fig butter on it, which served as breakfast. I like a bagged tea first thing on a Thursday morning, as I am always in a hurry, and do not have the time to sit and sip away.
After an evening of fencing, after a long day hunched over a ledger, a person sometimes needs a comfortable woolly sweater and a cup of sweetness.
I love having Comoro back in my cupboard, in sachet form. I can just pop one in a mug, add water, and be rewarded with a nice cup of tea, to sit and read with. Just the thing!
