4923 Tasting Notes
..and final tea of the evening since i figured i should have some caffeine free options! There are none in the travelling tea box A, so i’m sneaking some from my cupboard that are getting close to sipdown status so that i can push them closer to the edge.
..and um now i have see a woman about an elephant on her tea…
sipdown! which leaves me still at 224 because i snuck a tea to keep out of the travelling tea box A. ;) I figured that while i’m doing a good job of not increasing my cupboard tonight with the teabox, i should still try to get a sipdown in since i did not have any 52 teas from my cupboard tonight. I’ll try to do better tomorrow with my 52 teas sipdown – have a few earmarked to try/drink. I figure maybe there’s hope of getting to 210 by the weekend…maybe. heh
I still enjoy this one, though with orange cream from della terra, i don’t need to keep this one in my cupboard, even if it is easier to access. I prefer the Della Terra blend and they’re usually having a sale haha! Thanks to kittenna and cavocorax for letting me try this one out though!

and in other news – this is the 975th different tea that i’ve had (to pull a shmiracles), if steepster is to be believed.
**also in other news i totally lost my train of thought because someone’s facebook status made me laugh a lot. You know how there are words out there that people clearly don’t know what they are…how to spell them etc.. and you kind of shake your head and go with it? Well i never though i’d see the day that obstacles (a fairly “easy” word) was spelled wrong. Oppsticals. And yes..sometimes people have learning disorders and crap..not mocking the world but this was clearly from one of my friends who doesn’t know the word is obstacles, rather than her being unable to spell it properly. like my friend who thought it was “for all intensive purposes” instead of “intents and purposes” that sort of thing.
….holy tangent batman. So anyway…this tea? reminds me of i think? it’s palais de the’s toffee tea. I think? there’s something i’ve had that reminds me of this. The tea is not really buttered rum, and it’s a bit on the astringent side. it might fare better with a little cream or something but i prefer teas that i can drink straight.

oh god. this smells…uh gross. I’m fairly certain it’s the bergamot that’s inflicting this pain on my nose..or rather the blend of bergamot and passion fruit, which smells distinct on it’s own and is now coupled with bergamot. blech.
As for the taste? It’s really not too bad. The base blends quite nicely with the rest of the flavouring, leaving a cup that is actually pretty decent…except i can’t get past that smell. To which my other half has declared – “it smells like bad weed” not that i’d know what that smells like lol but his roomate at one point was too cheap to smoke good stuff…which apparently doesn’t smell as bad haha.
