1708 Tasting Notes
Oh, this is SO good! It’s exactly what it says it is – blackberry and lime flavours against a slightly woody guayusa background. I really am loving this. I took the next two weeks off work so I could visit family and relax with J a little before he gets a job, and this guayasa is just what I needed to power me through cleaning the living room!
Because vacuuming is fine but then you see things you need to dust, and move stuff around and before you know it you’ve started to move furniture and are trying to visualize things and UGH. Gimme some power-up tea! :D
I may end up buying a buttload of this! I usually prefer straight black teas in the morning but this is a nice jolt!
Thank you Sil! This is so good! It really reminds me of Special Dark, but that just might be because it’s a nice puerh with lots of chocolate notes, and it doesn’t make me think of dirt. I can’t remember what makes the other one different, but I do know that I am enjoying this one. Yay for good puerh!
I spent the last few days reading this awesome domestic!Dean fic that is so slow burn that it takes about 10 hours of reading before you get a kiss, but it’s still warm and fuzzy and full of happily ever afters. (http://miss-annthropic.livejournal.com/85169.html) Spoilers? :P Whatever. The Winchesters deserve happiness.
I drank this tea to celebrate how happy I was with that story, and it brewed up pretty decently today. I mostly taste caramel today!
TK and I enjoyed this with dinner – I steeped it hot, then dumped it into our travel mugs and we wandered outside to enjoy it. And we did enjoy it! It was creamy orange vanilla – I mean – how can you not like that? Unless you don’t like orange…
It still tastes a little like rooibos but overall it’s really quite nice. I’d probably want more of this for enjoying in the summer!
Sipdown! Saddest sipdown!
I drank this last night, and again today and it was really disappointing. It was ok, but it was more like a 75 than a 96. What’s going on with me and my precious Nina’s Japon? :|
Also, if anyone wants to listen to a playlist that’ll get them moving around (great for cleaning your house), this is what we listend to while we painted the shop today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKgKmMLH8yk#t=238
Sorry. I’m not sure if Shmiracles or VariaTEA sent me this because both have sent me a ton of Adagio teas, and BOTH have reviewed this. Huh. Sorry? But thank you to whoever it was. This tea is actually really great. Really great! i didn’t expect much, but it’s light and creamy, and minty and just delightful. I think I can actually taste the barky notes in the white tea and that grounds it a little bit, but it’s nice and sweet!
And I really need to watch Rise of the Guardians. That’s a good reminder! (168)
