1049 Tasting Notes
Tea of the morning. I woke up to frost on the ground this morning, and I knew I wanted this in my mug. It’s so warming and unique. There’s a sweet fruity note along with smoke and spice. The combination is absolutely delicious. The end of the sip is very clean leaving just a touch of heat in the back of the throat. Nice.
I removed my infuser a minute earlier than I normally do, and the difference was amazing. There’s a lot less smoke and the longan fruit note is much more pronounced. Because I’m a fan of smoke I’ll keep to a longer steep time, but this one was very nice, too.
Still drinking this. Still loving it. I feel like I’ve settled into a set of teas that I really enjoy which makes for happy sipping but terribly boring tasting notes. Not sure what to do about that. I can say that I have enough leaf left for one more serving of this, and then I’ll be able to order the new version of this tea. Yay!
Comfort tea. My son and I were in a car accident earlier today. We, as well as the driver of the other car, are fine (thank goodness!), but it still rattled me. I’ve been extra jumpy and sensitive, so I decided to calm myself with this lovely tea. Right now it’s everything I need it to be – hot, soothing, delicious, and easy to resteep. Sigh.
I can’t decide if this is an fall tea or not. The name is certainly appropriate for this time of year, and I am a big fan of Halloween. The tea itself has a wonderful spearmint and vanilla flavor, and there is a nice creamy feeling to it as well. It’s a great tea to unwind and relax with, and given that that’s exactly what I’m aiming to do today I guess that makes this an excellent fall tea. ;-)
I woke up earlier than I intended to a cold rainy day and a chilly house. A great time to drink this, one of my favorite fall teas. In fact, I think I’m going to spend today drinking fall inspired teas, or at least teas that remind me of autumn. This one could end up in my cup several times today. The mix of cranberry, almond, and vanilla is soooo good!
