drank English Toffee by Simpson & Vail
2576 tasting notes

Last night I was having a serious craving for sweets so it’s probably a good thing I don’t have any in the house! I’m not getting much exercise while I stay at home with my broken arm and I’m hoping not to gain any weight during this time.

So somehow this seems slightly decadent to me this morning. I brewed it in my stump teapot and am finding it fairly tasty. I am picking up toffee and marigolds although it is not a super strong flavor. I enjoyed this with a bit of stevia and soymilk. Getting a bit of burnt sugar in it somewhere. I’ll close my eyes and pretend I’m doing something really sinful – he he he. See previous notes if interested.

Sounds like a good one. Considering a Simpson & Vail order in my near future. :)

I got a catalog from them recently… Could be dangerous!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
