1766 Tasting Notes
The walnuts are the main player in this tea. I almost forgot that this was a green tea underneath. It’s pretty tasty though.
…I’ll finish my review tomorrow.
Update: Ok so I resteeped it and am drinking this again. The nuts are really tasty and it’s lightly fruity. I’m looking forward to finishing my mini-tin of this, but when it comes to restocking it, I might prefer Mulberry Magic as my nutty tea, especially as that one is caffeine free.
Yum. After trying a few chocolate orange teas and being bitterly disappointed, this Earl Grey with an orange twist is quite pleasant.
This pairs well with a gingerbread house. The molasses adds a nice bit of sweetness to this otherwise malty brew. The icing makes up for the lack of added sugar/cream.
As it cools, I find that it sorta tastes like perfume. Strange. Bleh. I might have to add cream and see if that fixes it.
It’s such a pretty tea, and I love the smell. I don’t want to not like it…(will rate another day)
The problem with needing tea to wake up in the morning is that you’re not really awake when you make it. Not only may I have understeeped it, I added more than a dollop of cream and now this tea is warmish, creamy, and not very strong. I could just as easily go back to sleep as I could make a new cup.
Today is a stay-in-my-pjs-forever sorta day. I’ll make the new cup, but no guarantee I’ll be fully awake. :)
Yum. This smells strongly of almond and fruit. I can’t believe I haven’t rated it yet and this is the last of my 30g bag! Sipdown!
It seems like the almond dominates the flavour, but I still get traces of cinnamon and apple and ginger. It’s pretty good, and would be nice on a cold night, but right now I’m a little indifferent to it.
Sorry Alpine Punch! I’ll try you again next year!
I’m just sitting on the computer researching things, so I thought… hey! Library Blend!
Man, am I glad that I did. I love this tea. I can taste the black AND the green! And the black is only slightly bitter. I think I oversteeped it, and I’m not sure if I used the right temperature with the green in it, but that just gives me an excuse to steep it again! It’s bold, with mellower undertones and a very pleasant floral fragrance!
