2304 Tasting Notes
I came up to Victoria to have a vacation for a week with my friend. There is a David’s Tea literally right outside our door. I am trying a new tea or two every day and there are loads of tea shops here. I think I am going to a yoga studio shortly and I thought I would try this since it’s low in caffeine. I really enjoyed this lemony coconut mixture. I had them put some soymilk in and it’s good that way. My only complaint is the artificial flavoring but it is pretty yummy!
Tea of the morning here. The Bay Area weather can be so bizarre – yesterday we were at the Marin County Fair in San Rafael and it felt like it was in the 90’s. This morning in San Francisco it’s foggy and under 60 degrees. Brrr. I’m glad I have this tea!
p.s. – I had the most wonderful 4th of July yesterday at the Marin County Fair!
Not much to say about this one, it’s straight up mint in teabag form. I guess this is spearmint and not peppermint or perhaps it’s a blend? It’s at work and it’s free so that’s why I’m drinking it – and I’ll probably drink some more.
We are having a beautiful day in the bay aside from the BART strike which has a lot of people cranky. I hope it ends soon!
Another wellness blend from Kusmi. I steeped this for 4 minutes and that seems about right to me.
I hope I’m not making a mistake by drinking this late in the day but I just woke up from a nap (gotta love Saturdays!)
It’s a black tea blend with some chai like spices including cardamom. There’s also licorice root in here, why is Kusmi so nuts over licorice in these wellness blends? Fortunately it isn’t as strong here as in some of their other blends. The pink peppercorns are a nice touch. I admit I don’t really know what guarana tastes like.
I decided to drink this with soymilk and it’s tasty but I don’t think I would go out of my way to buy it again. I’m into herbs and I googled the health benefits of licorice root, it has some fairly impressive claims made for it, so I guess that might be one reason to drink it on a regular basis.
It’s a sipdown…
this was not a super favorite of mine but I really wanted to try it iced today. I had the whole thing prepared in my Lupicia cooler and somehow the cooler fell out of the fridge and broke while I was getting my water out. So I didn’t get to drink the tea I ended up mopping it off the floor. So sad. :(
I will need to get another cooler, I liked it. I can do without anymore of this tea though.
