521 tasting notes

I threw caution to the wind tonight when brewing this. Assuming it was green and should be treated lightly I’ve been steeping this at a low temperature. This time I used slightly cooled boiling water, and I have to admit that this smells 1000000x better than it did before. The chai smells are becoming much more apparent than before.
This, I just dunno. I am glad I finally tried it at a hotter temp! It totally cleared up my previous complaint: not enough chai. It really brought out the spicier notes in this blend. I’m still getting the vanilla, but it helps round it out instead of dominating the whole cup. This is greatly improved with the temperature increase, so I am changing my original scoring on this blend.

LiberTEAS

I had to inform my youngest about this blend. She’s a HUGE Hunger Games fan. Peeta is her favorite character, and her first celeb crush. Ugh!

Tamm

lolol I know TONS of people bought it just for that! I’ve never actually read any of them. But with the $5 off coupons it probably wouldn’t be hard for them to grab a bag. :)

Uniquity

@LiberTeas, could be worse. The Backstreet Boys (particularly Brian) were my first “celeb” crush. Peeta’s pretty neat, though! : )
@Tamm, I read the books years ago as they came out (I worked in a bookstore) and am actually re-reading them now to brush up on the facts so I can keep up in conversations. They’re pretty compelling, despite not great writing and a horrific subject matter. If you’re an avid reader they’re worth a shot, since they go quickly and then you can talk about them with authority when/if the subject comes up. : )

Tamm

At least I know lots of people with copies, so I won’t have to buy them myself! To be honest, I don’t even own a full set of Harry Potter novels because I mostly loaned them from the library.

Uniquity

I read most things from the library. I’ve always gots a couple things on hold or coming in. I’ve taken to getting TV shows from the library too, especially cooking shows.

Tamm

O.O I didn’t know anyone could rent tv shows (probably dvds right?) from the library. I have one up here where I live, but I’ve never been to it. Before I had a car it was way to far to walk; so I never got into that. I wish I had some more time to read atm. but I’m waiting for the semester to be over.
