972 Tasting Notes
I needed a cup of this for comparison to what I am trying later today. This one is smooth and sweet enough that I am able to bump the amount I sweeten it way down. (Someday, I am hoping I won’t need the sweet as much.) I have a sample of Emporer’s Red from the lovely JacquelineM. to compare…..and I am thinking she is the Emporer Red dealer in disguise….to get us all hooked and then…. I am sure there will not be a comparison, but it is the only similar region black I have in my cupboard for reference.
Backlogging from yesterday-
This was the main tea I drank on our camping overnight with my scouts. It was really roughing it, because I had to make my tea with well water. Luckily, the English Breakfast was strong and smokey enough that it fared well. The heat from the tea was very welcome, as was the ease of using paper teabags to steep in. It was cold! I would definitely drink this on the next campout…
My morning tea after shovelling wet snow. Luckily, I remembered the milk this time and it made a huge improvement. Lightly smokey, rich, and packs a good morning punch. Definitely needs milk and sweetener for my taste.
Watching the news about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. My heart goes out to those affected.
My evening cuppa listening to my Girl Scout Troop plan for a campout we are having this weekend. I am wondering if the 6-10 inches of snow in our forecast will slow us down any…. I did pack my tea for the weekend first!
Lightly sweet and I can definitely taste the apricot. Lovely and relaxing with a little sweetener. (I am seeing a pattern here….tea greatly adds to my relaxation. Awesome!)
Good Morning to my new breakfast blend! I wish I could concentrate on just you in the mornings, but my breakup with last breakfast tea was messy. I was ready, but my past love was not. I still have some things from the past relationship unfinished, which I will need time to work through. Please be patient.
Love this one. The smokiness is light, but definitely still gets me going in the morning. And I can even see a few afternoon pick me ups with Mincing Lane in my future.
