512 Tasting Notes
Long time, no Steepster! I have been MIA lately, but every so often I come on and read a few reviews because why not?
This one has made its way back into my cupboard after a sip down quite a long time ago. I have it back in there because I’m pregnant with baby #2! Munchkin #1 is just over 1.5years old, and baby #2 is currently at 22 weeks, due date is Christmas Day! haha
Anyways, after an hour drive to pick up a final piece of the bed for munchkin’s big boy bed and the hour drive back and putting munchkin to bed late because of how it just worked out, it was time for a cup of hot tea, even though it’s like 9:15pm. I just needed something hot and comforting and this one totally hit the spot. Milk and sugar and a 3.5min steep. Yum. And tonight I’m going to be early because I’ve been up late the last few nights and it’s starting to catch up with me.
This lovely tea isn’t going to last long! I am starting to inhale it! It’s so yummy iced in my new iced tea travel press! I love this thing. Like so much!
Anyways, I’m loving this one as an iced tea. It’s already sweet enough on its own so nothing added to this one. The rest of my tin won’t last long now…
How many times have I reviewed this one now? Too many? Either way again today I’m loving this tea. I steeped up western style as I have somewhere to be in about an hour and still have to pack a diaper bag and get ourselves ready to go out the door. But this time I’m adding some milk! I know it’s crazy to do that with this lovely tea but for some reason I just wanted to.
I love this tea. So smooth and yummy. It’s helping my day start a little better.
Do you ever have one of those days where you wake up and instantly think about everything that’s gone on in the last few weeks? Today was one of them. My husband is finishing his last week at a job he basically hates now and is starting a job next week that i think he’s going to love.
Mid to late January we had to put our one cat down. He was becoming too aggressive and spooked about everything and he gave me such evil looks near the end and I thought he was going to pounce on me and my son. He didn’t handle change too well. I didn’t want to have to but we knew it was for the best especially since we knew he wouldn’t do well going to the humane society, if he couldn’t handle me moving furniture around and a few new noices of my son I knew he wouldn’t handle the humane society. Something was off about that cat. I miss him because he was so sweet at times but I don’t because his bad times where really bad.
Anyways…. Lots on my mind today. And it’s nice to have a moment to sit and wash it all down with a very delicious tea.
Another sip down! Still on my straight tea kick. Not sure why yet. Anyways, last cup of this today. I’m still doing the milk and sugar thing but whatever. haha
I definitely get the jam/fruit taste which is fine, but not something I would go for everyday. I definitely prefer black teas that don’t have that.
But even still, this is a good tea and I can appreciate it for what it is. I probably wouldn’t get this again though.
For some reason I’m on a straight tea kick. But I’m making it the way I always use to make my Orange Pekoe when I very first started drinking tea: milk and sugar. It’s so yummy.
This tea didn’t stand a chance. I inhaled it. I would love to get more of this one as my alternative to Orange Pekoe, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get it easily again or not. I found this on the discount shelf at the grocery store sometime last year… But I do know of a place not far that sells a Canadian Breakfast tea from Metropolitan tea company so maybe I’ll switch back to that one.
Either way, this tea is super good and I loved it. It will be missed for sure.
