8063 Tasting Notes
So I can tell we’re starting to make headway with the house because I’ve baked twice now in he the past weekend. Yesterday I made honey bran muffins with raisins (because let’s be honest bran muffins without raisins aren’t anything ppl want to eat…) and tonight? Tonight I’m making banana nut cookies…Sans nuts lol. I guess I could call them banana oat cookies? Neither my other half nor I really loves walnuts in cookies (or brownies! Bah!) . Both recipes were new ones, so they could have been disasters lol
Anyway, I digress… I’m enjoying my last cup of this one while I eat fresh baked cookies that are totally yummy. This one will be back in my cupboard I’m sure but another day.
Final count: 199 (woohoo! Sooo 99 teas in twoweeks? Lol you know it’s me…so of course I’ll try…. Not expecting to succeed)
[also for anyone who cares…operation 6 month is still going strong. down to 2 teas from october and nine from December, which is significant if you consider all my black friday orders lol)
and the rest of this gets set aside for whomever wants to pull it from my swap box. I’m doing my best not to keep teas around that have fallen out of favour or just make me happy to be drinking them. if it’s a chore, it’s not worth it. I drank nearly all of the 100g bag, so there’s not a lot left but i just.don’t. wanna.
missB sent this my way and i’m so glad she did. While this is a great chai, i’m not sure it tops the laoshan village chai from verdant that i love…well unless they keep the winter formulation which i DO NOT LIKE as much. this is a tasty chai, but works better with the addition of a little honey and milk. i do like the difference here though with the zhu rong versus the LB. overall, i’ll probably buy another ounce just to play with it even more as i’d like to try and brew this “proper” :)
someone edited this tea in between me adding it and getting around to finally writing a review. Not sure what they did but it manage to break my ipad everyone i access it, so i had to come play on the big computer lol. this isn’t a bad darjeeling but it isn’t one that screams out to come be my new favourite. on the whole darjeelings mostly confuse me and taste strange. this one isn’t bad, but again, give me a solid cup of black any day!
boychik sent this one my way and i’m not yet sure how i feel about it. I think this is on the upside of tasty, though there’s a note there that i don’t like as much. i, sadly had this really early this morning and don’t recall much beyond that :) appreicate the share though boychik as it’s given me more to think about in terms of H&S blacks.
Mmmmmfinal cup of tea. Shouldn’t be drinking this one as it’s a more recent purchase but damnit I want the teas that I want today! Lol. I still love this one a lot – such a unique pairing of flavours that really work. So happy omgsrsly introduced this one to me.
Final count: 204 including River tea that came in today heh
