1163 Tasting Notes
Ah, when I saw this in the grocery store I could not resist its call. I got this last year, when I had first moved into my house, and its smell brought me right back to those days of the house with too little furniture and nothing on the walls.
I like it. I get almond, not coconut out of it, and almond is one of my favorites.
I have a soft spot for this.
Its still raining, rare enough event around here, and so its to the smokey, caramelly vanilla-y warm sweater tea.
When I bought this, I was suspicious, and only bought a small amount. Now I feel like I am greedily parcing it out. I will need more of this, before the winter is through.
There is nothing, in my mind, quite like having a quiet morning to sit in your robe, and watch the rain, drinking lovely tea.
I could not help it. My second pot of this rainy morning had to be Boston.
Its serving as my pot of “writer juice” this morning. I like to write with a cup of tea on hand. I find it helps me think.
I love almond. Last time I asked about almond perfume, and I am buisily hunting down the suggestions. I just bought myself a bar of almond scented soap, as well, which is lovely.
Sip, sip, type, type.
I woke up this morning to discover that it was raining. And cold! Perfection, that is some of my favorite weather.
I’ve been hording this little sample from Nina’s for just such a day, occationally picking it up and smelling it. It smells deliciously of smoke.
Wood smoke in a cup. Its amazingly true to the sent. I can see how some people might taste bacon in it. Or how they might find it too smoky.
I do not find it too smokey. It is strong, but I really like it. I have almost zero experience with Lapsang Souchong, but I will probably explore more of this. Is good!
A perfect cup for a cold rainy day.
Mint. I do get the mint out of this, but the rest of the title is not making an apperance in my cup. Where is the chocolate note, eh? Bah.
All said, its not dreadful or anything, I’m just not impressed. Not a lot of this, as I have a tiny amount. Still, it will be good to have it all sipped down and to move on to other non caf desert teas.
