216 Tasting Notes
Last night, the hubs and I went out for curry at a Thai restaurant we frequent. I had some of my veggie Massaman curry left over, so I brought it home and am having it for lunch today, along with this tea.
I had thought about chai with my curry, but decided I needed a plain tea that wouldn’t compete with the spices in the curry. Frothed some splenda and almond-coconut milk while the Assam brewed, and then combined for a nice malty latte. Perfect with my lunch.
Finished off this bag today (not sure why I never added it to my cupboard here). I am just not a tropical tisane person. Won’t be re-ordering it. It’s all right as an iced drink, but not really my… er… cup of tea. cough
I got a sample of this awhile back. I like that it goes well with the almond-coconut milk we have. Other than that, it’s not really all that memorable, just pleasant.
sniffle Oh Captain, I will miss you.
I just brewed the last of it this morning. First cup was a latte, now I am drinking the second brewing as iced.
Good both ways.
I want mmore!!
Enjoying my cup of Prince Vlad. Today is the last work day before a 4 day weekend. I am looking forward to it. I will be doing some spinning and will probably enjoy a few pots of tea whilst doing so.
Had car trouble this morning, so I am working from home. I hope it won’t be too expensive.
Ok, for honesty’s sake, i will preface this by saying that I have been drinking for a couple of hours now. Also, I’m a lightweight when it comes to alcohol. PS – I’m at home, not driving, so don’t worry!
Ok – hubs made coffee and put some of my amaretto in it, and it smelled soooo good, so I had to try it with tea. I made pot of Black Dragon Pearls.
Before pouring, I added sugar and half & half to my cup, whipped it into a froth, poured into my amaretto, and then tea and…
OH MY GODDESS….
This is the best thing ever!
It kinda tastes like marshmallows. and it’s gooood. Yum!
I just can’t deal with coconut. Give in this to a friend.
Tried this again, and I liked it much better this morning. Not sure what I did differently!
Finished off my sample of this yesterday. Enjoyed it, definitely want to explore more Assam tea.
