1905 Tasting Notes
Tea of the morning here…
I decided to steep this for 4 minutes and the result is really interesting. It definitely got very malty and has a touch of tobacco but also with a floral note? Yeah and I’m drinking it with vanilla soymilk, it’s pretty good that way. Will have to try more things from Seven Cups in the future.
I haven’t had this tea in ages… everytime I see it, I feel sad since I got it as a Christmas present from the ex last year. It really is an excellent tea though.
I’m also in no hurry to drink it since it doesn’t go bad. I steeped some up today in the koi teapot I have.
I really have come to enjoy loose leaf pu-erhs. After 30 seconds, I am getting sensations of fruitiness, nuttiness, in addition to a touch of sweet cream on the finish. I did write an extensive note about it months ago, so you can read that if you’re interested.
This reminds me that I need to pay a visit to Red Blossom Tea soon!
Tea of the morning here… why yes, roses and cardamom do make for a delightful morning tea. Excellent with my morning toast.
I really like this stuff, it’s better than I remember it. I wonder if that’s because I steeped it longer this time. I bumped the rating up another point. :)
This is definitely a nice tea for a rainy afternoon/early evening.
I admit I do not crave it often, but I love it when the weather is cold and rainy! And I’m happy the heat is starting to come on in my building. Can you say… brrrr?
Thanks so much to The Purrfect Cup for sending me some of this. I’ve always wanted to try it!
I made a big old mug of this to keep me company on such an oooky afternoon. I tend to like genmaicha anyway and this is a nice, nutty flavor. I’m definitely getting the marshmallow as well as some butteriness here. This is really quite yummy. Due to the sweetness I would primarily drink this as a dessert tea. Why won’t Frank add this as the permanent collection? It’s good!
Tea of the early afternoon. I actually like this one fairly well and would consider buying a tin of it the next time Kusmi has a free shipping promotion.
I am feeling under the weather today so I might have to stay at home and watch the “Little Dorritt” miniseries I got from the library. Oh well, life can’t always be exciting can it??
all done with my sample size of this tea. I decided to mix some of it along with the smoky Scottish Breakfast tea I have from Peet’s.
It wasn’t an unabashed success but I am still high on a cloud from seeing the Roy Hargrove Quintet last night at Yoshi’s… enjoy this song if you like jazz. :)
I’m finally finishing this off. It’s a pretty yummy rooibos and I would consider picking some more of this up but won’t set foot in a Teavana store. lol! :)
Tea of the afternoon here….
My package arrived from Butiki and I couldn’t want to try this! I haven’t had eggnog in ages.
I steeped this according to instructions and it is better than I was hoping. The aroma is very authentic. After tasting I went to go add a wee bit of turbinado sugar and I bet this would also be really good with soymilk. I’m getting the nutmeg, vanilla and the creaminess, even a bit of the booziness.
Ah Stacy, you have created a real winner here, this is delicious. A wonderful treat with a fraction of calories of a real eggnog (and much healthier, I imagine). I think this will be gone rather quickly. ;-)
