2062 Tasting Notes
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. :)
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. ;-)
Tea of the morning here, I can usually count on a Simpson & Vail tea as a reliable morning cuppa. I’m not getting as much grape flavor this time around but I may not have steeped it for as long as I usually do. I wonder who Duke Cardiff was/is? Couldn’t find anything with a quick search on Google, might be fun to find out. :)
2nd tea of the afternoon here. I ordered a package from Butiki and my greedy little hands were sad I did not get it today! I want to try the eggnog tea.. and the plum pudding… and …
This is a really good oolong and has some tasty flavors going for it. I am partial to drinking this with soymilk, which perhaps makes me a look. :)
I also need to watch my caffeine intake in the afternoon, so this might be my last cup for a while.
I got this one last year, but I think red robes stay good for a while, for at least 5 years.
I’ve had two steeps of this and it’s still as good as I remember. Dark and toasty with an underlying fruitiness. I am slowing down on tea purchasing, does anyone believe it?
