drank Bon Bon no. 914 by Tin Roof Teas
1816 tasting notes

Whoosh! A whole pot all by myself! Well, I drank it by myself in that no one else had any, but I wasn’t alone. I enjoyed a nice Sunday morning with my godson who is visiting from college, chatting about the future and life-purpose, thankfulness, and living purposefully, loving and serving others. What a great young man! If you are ever having the “what is the world coming to?” blues, ask him to come over!

The tea: lots of good sized pieces of coconut are in this blend. The black base reminds me a lot of Harney’s straight chocolate tea, but this isn’t really tasting exactly like Soho Blend to me. I think Soho has a little additional flavor, maybe vanilla? Or something floral? It has been a long time since I have had it, but I think when I restock it will be with Soho.

I like this one mixed with TRT marzipan blend, yummy!

How did I miss seeing that one? Is it a black tea blend?

Your gs sounds wonderful! I always feel a little more hopeful about the condition of the world after spending time with my fifth graders…this year’s crop is growing some boys who are going to make wonderful, caring men someday.

And the tea sounds pretty lovely, too!

They pointed the marzipan out to me one time when I was there, and I was hooked (I love marzipan!) I almost never try mixing teas together on my own, but the sales girl suggested this with the bon bon and it’s one of my staples. :)

Sigh. Well, I will be back soon. I can get some then! I did go to Penzey’s and buy some almond extract. I have been putting it in my vanilla shakes. :)

Josie Jade

Oh, that sounds good. I will have to try that, I love anything almond flavored! I always use a little extract when I’m baking.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
