1053 Tasting Notes
Its October! Pumpkin month. So to start it off, I am giving this blend a try.
Hmm, first thought is that it seems very simalar to Chocolate Pumpkin Pie, in which I did not detect any chocolate.
This is a nice pumpkin spice blend, it does have a pie like warmth to it. The actual squash note isnt amazingly strong, but its not too spicy. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I like this. I will have fun drinking this during the next couple of months.
Now we have arrived at a mild tea crisis. I am out of Paris. I love Paris, its a stand by tea, and I can get it easily in the sachets at any time. But I should be trying to minimize my cupboard, and I am indeed trying to do that.
So the question is this- to restock immediately, knowing that I will restock anyway, or keep the total low? I have a great many other good teas to sip on, in the absence of Paris.
So last time I got a Harney order, I added a tagalong of this blend.
I’m begining to think that a strawberries and chocolate blend is not really for me. I’ve got a couple of them now, and I’ll drink them, but I wont be getting them again, I think.
This is, like every H&S blend, smooth. And its got an underlying creaminess that is very pleasant. The strawberry isnt very fruity, if that makes any sense. It makes the chocolate a little more watery (and yes, I know I just said creamy. I am a mass of contradictions today) I’ll consume my tagalong without too many problems.
I have had the ends of this sample in my cupboard for ages, and today is the day to sip it down!
This will be a somewhat unpopular opinion, but I dont really care for this. Dont get me wrong, its a good blend. I havnt found an H&S blend that I havnt found to be a good, well balanced and generally good, so this all comes down to a matter of taste, I suppose. Florence is just not for me. And now the sample is gone! Another tea out of my cupboard.
Sipdown. Cue the soft weeping.
Yume is a much beloved blend by me. The strawberry and vanilla walk hand in hand of deliciousness.
However, it is a summer/springy tea in my mind, and I’m on buying hiatus. When I do another order, I shall get some yume again. Absolutly. Bye bye for now, pretty tea.
