1623 Tasting Notes
Surprise! One more Firefly tea! :) I thought I’d lost this but I’d just left it at work. Silly me.
So, this is a peachy oolong, with cream and a little bit of spice. It’s quite calming and relaxing which is awesome because that’s what I need as I’m feeling super anxious at the moment. What gives?
Well, Simon is here to save the day. I’m chilling out a bit.
Thank you VariaTEA! It’s only lightly peachy but the cream is nice. I can go for subtle.
Last sipdown for today! That’s all the firefly teas!
I think I over-steeped this by 10 minutes but it’s totally forgiving. I’m tasting licorice, and orange and lemongrass and it’s really calming. So relaxing. Time for bed.
Dammit. I could possibly buy some of this too. Guys – this person REALLY knows how to blend tea!
ETA There’s no actual licorice in this so maybe it’s the blueberries steeped to the max that I’m tasting?
ETalsoA I’m at 200 teas!!! Bahahah
Oh! I like this one too! It’s a nice black assam, with chai AND lemongrass/coconut. It’s a really interesting combination and I really, really like it. I think this is one of the ones I’ll think about long after it’s gone and want more.
Also, I’m not done yet, but overall I’ve been very impressed with the Firefly teas. The blender has obviously put some thought into each one, and they all taste at least decent with a few standing out. That’s really something! I hope whatshesaid enjoys them as well!
Yeah. This is going on my list, unless it turns terrible once it cools.
Thanks VariaTEA! (202)
Another one from VariaTEA! I’m just working my way through the whole crew. Hahaha. (203, lalalala, Sil, I can’t hear you!)
I really like this one! I’m not sure why that is either because it’s really just a regular chai with added cinnamon, but perhaps that’s all I need? I love the mix of fierce chai toned down with sweet sweet cinnamon. Zoe’s fierce, but she has heart. :)
