1698 Tasting Notes
This was my breakfast cuppa today. I’ve had several teas from The Devotea and I have to say that this one is by far my favorite. It has a nice thick mouthfeel, and a lot of maltiness to it that I quite enjoy. It’s a little smoky, and a little astringent, but NOT unpleasantly so.
It’s a great start for a work week! (Especially a work week in which I forgot to bring milk to work for my cereal, and forgot the mouse for my Surface! At least I brought my Surface in – otherwise it’d be a long bus ride home…)
And that’s the last of this! Thank you VariaTEA for loading me up with so much to begin with! I really do enjoy the flavours in the tea – it’s very decadent. Best breakfast!
And I think that I DO enjoy this more than Lupicia’s Cookie tea, although I like both for similiar reasons. I might still end up ordering Cookie instead though, only because there’s nothing else I want from ATR, while I don’t think I’d have trouble ordering from Lupicia!
My cupboard keeps getting smaller – I think it’s partly bc Steepster hasn’t been working well lately and so I haven’t been getting excited about other teas, and can’t-miss sales etc. Partly because I’ve been working part-time a bit too as we wait for Hannibal to start shooting – we’re getting close! I think I get to read Episode 6 on Monday, and filming should start in a month or so?
The Hannibal Season 2 dvd just came out and there’s two special featurettes on it that feature our shop and the work involved in creating all the dead bodies. It was really awesome to watch – it made us look good! Also I sorta laughed when I recognized a few of the photos I took in the dvd. That’s about the limit to my creative input – I’m just admin, not talent. :P It’s all my boss and his employees.
Anyway, this tea was good, but I’m not sure about re-ordering it? I’m just not THAT big on oolongs, although the mint flavouring is quite nice. I just wanted to finish this today since it’s the Last Day of Summer! Woohoo. I love Fall, so I am not upset by that!
I love this tea, and I love doing geek things so I am taking a break from playing Destiny with my bf to watch Supernatural and get ready for my convention.
It’s going to be in 20 days and I still have 26 episodes to watch. I CAN DO THIS. I actually think I’ll be able to!
This tea though, really, it’s freaking awesome.
