90 Tasting Notes
darn. I love this tea and decided to finish it off tonight. Unfortuantely it seems to have been just cranberry left in my bag. Need to remember to shake the bags of these chunkier teas! Oh well. one more out of my cupboard.
I had been craving this tea ALL WEEK I hate hibiscus so it was a short 4 minute steep with lots of honey. Tastes like strawbery campinos in hot liquid form. yummy.
Mmmmm. I had this sweetened with honey. Unfortunately I put ice in it to cool it down but it cooled it off too much. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it had been the right temperature, but still, how do I not own this already?
This was my first cup on my first day back in the store after Christmas. I was underslept and grumpy after spending 10 hours on a bus. This tea never fails to cheer me up!
I have had this iced and sweetened. And liked it. But tonight I’m drinking it hot with a generous squeeze of honey and OH MY GOD. It’s like liquid candy.
This was the TOTD on the day I started at DT. I tried it, straight, liked it and then just never came back to it. Now I finally got around to the tin from my 24 days of tea. DELICIOUS. I’l going to be having this in store a lot more!
the first time I had this tea, I tried it really hot and unsweetened and was kind of meh. However, I got a chocolate craving tonight and brewed it a bit strong and sweetened with honey. It was like a cup of chocolate pudding. Oh no, another one I’m going to have to restock and it’s an online exclusive! That means I have to pay full price! harumph
why do I ever drink anything else ever. I can’t believe I haven’t had this is two months. It’s perfection. I always avoid it because it’s so touchy about temperature but as I was trying to pick a tea tonight I realized my water was perfect at that very moment for this tea.
Perfect Christmas Eve tea. Now if only netflix would start working!
So, remember when all the fall teas went away and this one didn’t? I actually don’t know what the plan is. Like, is it in store for good? Are you going to take it away from me soon? ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE ME ENOUGH WARNING TO BUY FIVE KILOGRAMS OF THIS?
these are the things that keep me up at night
just made a cup of this after a furious bout of stress cleaning. Definitely helping to calm me down and bring me back to centre. I love this tea, I steeped it forever, probably like 20 minutes while I finished loading the dishwasher and tidying my kitchen and can definitely taste some astringency from the tulsi, but mostly it’s a lot of licorice. Which I love! I like the cooling effect it has on the back of my throat too. Ommmmmm
