1774 Tasting Notes
So I started drinking this today, but it looks like it was mistake. After taking a few sips I appreciated the taste of it, but decided I wasn’t really craving it. :| So, I guess I’ll put the leaves aside for another day. Good thing I have enough samples for a few more trials!
ETA: My roommate is drinking the Countess of Seville, and the baby has started dipping her fingers in it, and sucking on them. I guess she’s a fan. She’s been doing this for a few minutes now.
So my bf asked me to make him some iced tea because he wanted something and I was so amazed that I didn’t know what to make. But he likes Starbucks fraps and sweet drinks so I thought maybe… Florence?
I used the last of this to make him an iced cup, with milk and sugar, but he thought it tasted weird. So… I guess I’ll have to drink it.
I made him some DTT Vanilla Black instead, without milk and he’s happier with that. Still sorta amazed that he’s drinking tea. #fingerscrossed
Interesting! I’ve never had fennel tea on it’s own like this, so when KittyLovesTea said she wanted to get rid of some of her unloved teas, I snatched it up.
I didn’t really know what to expect, but I knew these would be something like licorice. THis would probably have to be an acquired taste, but I’m happy I got to try it out! Now if I ever blend my own herbals, I’ll know what Nettle and Fennel are all about.
I’d had this twice in the evenings now, and I’ve really enjoyed it, but I find that I’m just too busy with the baby, and packing lunches etc etc that I don’t really have much time to hop on the computer.
So this is to remind that YES. This is a good pu-erh. It doesn’t really taste like pu-erh which I suppose could be a bonus for someone like me who’s afraid of getting too much dirt in their cup again.
