1772 Tasting Notes
I was sipping this all day while we moved the last of our stuff back into the suite. Eeesh. It was such a long day but this was such a beauiful tea. Thanks Sil I didn’t get a chance to log it while I made it but it was great and quite tolerant to abuse. (Sorry tea – I kept steeping it for 8-10 minutes…)
Sipdown! I’m at 150. :)
I guess it’s pretty easy to do when you actually stop ordering teas! Now, to see if I can join Sil in the 100’s… (and then order more, most likely – hahaha)
Anyway, thank you Sil and/or VariaTEA for letting me try this. Sorry I couldn’t remember exactly who it was that gave me the cup! It is really relaxing though. I almost feel like I should have a sore throat or a cold or something to fully appreciate this, but it’s really just what I need to end this day! Still got more moving/unpacking stuff to do tomorrow, so goodnight Steepsterites!
Even though I finished this now, I hadn’t reviewed this because I was undecided while I sipped it.
I drank some of it cold-steeped earlier today with dinner, and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t memorable enough. I tried to have a goodnight cup of this but my daughter pushed into me and I ended up spilling the cup down the stove and into all the burners. Le sigh. :p
So now I’m making chamomile to relax!
I think this was a free sample with my last order as I generally don’t order anything other than black teas. It’s tasty though! Buttery and light and very vegetal. It seems like a poor choice for 9 at night – maybe it’d be better in the morning or afternoon. Or at least some time when the sun is up?
Oh, and the spinach notes linger long afterwards…
