479 Tasting Notes
What a day! Having some of this right now! Needed something soothing for my stomach, since my husband and I decided to celebrate Valentine’s day by going out for a brownie sundae and fries. Used to be okay with the random, spontaneous " ice cream for dinner," but feeling pretty gross right now. We’ve been eating pretty healthy for awhile now…seems like the junk food was a shock to my system. Blah! Thank goodness for this tea! Something about the peppermint makes me feel better, even though I’m not a fan of minty teas. Added a little honey to offset the bitter valerian root and its perfect!
In other news, I made it to both Lupicia and DavidsTea today, and I bought a ton of different teas to try! I’m so excited to steep them all, so you’ll be hearing more from me. Just not until tomorrow.
Didn’t get a chance to write anything yesterday, so I’m catching up now. Had this for my morning tea yesterday. I love it so much! Wish my mug at work was bigger, and that it wouldn’t cool off so fast. Really need to stop by DavidsTea and pick more up, but that’ll have to wait until next week because this week I have a Lupicia shopping trip planned! It’s so nice to have both of these shops within walking distance from work!
I wasn’t sure about this one at first. It has a really strong potpourri-like smell, but I really like it. It has almost a fermented berry taste at the front end of the sip, and a lavender floral taste at the back end of the sip. Very complex, but strangely relaxing. It must be the lavender. Anyway, definitely a keeper. Will be buying more of this!
Just had another cup of this. It definitely tastes like a buttery caramel cookie. It’s best brewed strong with milk and sugar…a definite dessert tea. Think I might get some more…I’m almost out. Sharing tea with friends is causing me to run out sooner than I thought, but the upside is I have room for new tea!
My husband got me this tea for Christmas. He was right on for picking a good flavor for me. It’s a really nice cinnamon tea, with a touch of butter, but on the weak side as far as flavor goes. Good with breakfast. I guess it’s limited, so once it’s gone, that’s it, but there are 50 tea bags, so I’m sure I’ll have it for awhile.
