8162 Tasting Notes
I have been dreaming about this tea. Cteresa and i swapped a year ago? And this has been on my wish list since then. I’ve searched for suppliers in the US and Canada to no avail and so when i had the chance to restock this one, 200g came home with me. For me, this is the perfect chocolate/hazelnut tea. You can still taste the base…the flavours are subdued but not so much that you can’t spot them instantly. I was terrified that i’d get this home and hate it…but i don’t. I love it. So thank you again Cteresa for sharing this one with me so long ago!
(on a side note for those looking for the o dor….they are apparently opening 4? more retailers in the US and are looking for this first in Canada. I had the opportunity to speak with one of their distributor folks at the launch of their tea in paris. She’s supposed to email me a list which i’ll share if she sends it along.)
My other tea from this morning. I finished off enough of the first 50g package of this one i picked up, to be able to add the remainder to the other package. yay for getting rid of a package ha! I adore this tea. It’s seriously one of my favourite straight teas from TTC. I’m struggling because i want to buy a ton more before the lot changes, but i REALLY have no room in my house for more tea at the moment lol honey, apple, cinnamon, bread like delicious tea.
I started the morning today with this one. I know, it’s not a fancy french tea but it’s one of my older teas and i’m still doing my best to keep my cupboard from being no older than 6 months. I managed to not make any purchases in April AND get my sipdown goal in, but May is another story. lol I haven’t added all the teabags to my cupboard yet either, mostly because i’ll be doing a few swaps in the short term and don’t want people asking for those teas as i only have 1 bag of each.
This tea was a great starter to being back home. So many things to do today to get organised for “real life” ugh.
oh man..today is a super busy day. I’m trying to wrap up things at work, run errands, get ready for vacation and in the midst of all of this, i’ve had 3 people approach me about possibly applying for other jobs. sooo yay? but OMG SO BUSY!
trying to get in some tea drinking though since i need the water/liquids and because i’m not sure how much i’ll get in over the next few days. still enjoying this but i’m having trouble lately as i’m bored with a lot of my teas.
