1538 Tasting Notes
I have entered into a phase where I am determinedly drinking this tea. I’ve got maybe two pots of this left, and I’d like it to be all drunk up, and quite soon. So I’m including this in the rotation more than I normally would.
Its gonna be a long day, and I’m already running late this morning. (Well, running behind. I’m not late actually yet).
Time to apply the sunscreen and head out into the world!
I think I’ve only got one more pot of this. Maybe one and a bit.
I’m glad. This is not a bad tea, but it was never going to be my favorite, and I’ve found it to be problematic to sip on. So getting it gone would be quite the achievement, for which I would be happy.
Though I must admit, it steeped pretty nicely today. Its just not my favorite combination of flavors.
I saw the bottom of the tin today while I was parcing this out! I cant believe it. Its amazing. I’ve only got a few pots of this left.
I’ve got mixed feelings about Marie-Antoinette. I love that is a sour apple tea, but I’m not completely sold. Something has just never set perfectly. Well, oh well.
Its hot! Argh. We have entered into my summer season, my least favorite. Argh.
Backlogged from yesterday.
Why am I so timid of green tea? I can never quite wrap my brain around it. But, with the temps yesterday being in the 100s, I thought it “felt” right to have.
For starts, this smells wonderful. Jasmine and a sparkiling grape note. Beautiful and pleasant. Why had I ignored this tin so long?
Well, brewed up the smell is not quite as impressive, and I found a bitter note lurking around in the back. This is, quite possibly, all my fault. I’m used to brewing robust black teas, and I might be applying that heavy handedness to this pot. Well, next time I’ll steep lighter, or with cooler water, and see what I think of it then.
Hurrah to drinking teas that have been languishing in the back of cupboards! Drink tea 2014!
