3769 Tasting Notes
another delicious afternoon tea that came with me on our trip out to hit the mall (super quick ‘cause i need to find a kettle to replace my current one) and then to costco to pick up a few things that we’ve run out of. Not feeling 100% today so it was nice to have a little pick me up while out and about. caramel? check. cheesecakey goodness? check.
Had this in the morning with a wonderful breakfast made by my other half. this is the first saturday he’s had off since we got back from vacation so it was lovely to sleep in and have breakfast made by him :)
I really like this blend. It’s not as strong or as intense as some of the blacks i prefer when i’m waking up for work, but for a lazy saturday this is delightful :)
mmmmm not too many entries for this, though I most assuredly have had almost all of it. The problem is, that i tend to use this as an addition to other matchas in my smoothies. English toffee coffee? Chocolate coffee? french vanilla coffee? Caramel coffee? :) I find that the coffee matcha does a great job of cutting through the sweet and bringing that balance to my smoothies.
Today though.. it was two smoothies! first the straight eng toffee one and then this one! Maybe tonight will be a french vanilla pumpkin pie latte :)
Hold on folks…it’s going to be a long day! I had a screaming headache last night that nothing seemed to cure. I ended up being awake until about 4am at which point I finally passed out from being utterly exhausted. Of course that meant I was up 2 hours later to go to work. My headache’s still there, so I’m hoping i can convince it to lay low for the rest of the day. Why you might ask? Because it’s also our christmas party this evening and that’s going to make today super long!
So i figured i’d kick things off this morning with a bang! English Toffee Smoothie! Followed by a coffee smoothie (short note to come soon). I prefer to mix them in together, but figured what the hell since it’s going to be a really long day. I’m hoping i can sneak in a quick matcha latte this evening too before i have to come back downtown for the shin dig.
English Toffee match…you are sweet creamy deliciousness that makes me smile.
Even slightly cold this tea is pretty darn good. I picked up 2oz of it when it was on sale and that should about do me for the next while. Apparently this fall/winter was the year of trying out pumpkin teas. Prior to this i pretty much refused all things pumpkin. Yay for samplers that let me try this first!
