1764 Tasting Notes
Here’s another one from ozli. It was pretty essential to try today due to the eggnog smell.
This is pretty great. It’s slightly creamy, with lots of vanilla notes, and eggnog spices rolling around in each sip. It makes me think of what I imagine warmed eggnog would taste like. I think it might even be better than my DTT Winter Nog, but that’s rooibos so not really comparable.
Thanks ozli for the huuuuge bag of this. Hello Christmas Tea: ILU!
Even though we’re not doing a big Christmas thing this year, I am doing a turkey! His name is Frank. So today I’m getting everything prepped and straightened out. I’m looking forward to a nice Christmas dinner, and watching K open up all her presents (or try to).
We don’t have a tree and my bf and I basically bought ourselves a small gift, but the baby will be spoiled. We’ll have a few people over for games, and a batman marathon in the background! My roommate even surprised me with a mystery gift and it’s from DavidsTea!!!
I hope everyone is having a great Christmas. And that they find tea related gifts in their stockinged.
I’m on my first steeping of this and every sip is a mouthful of creamy buttery goodness. It makes me want shortbread cookies so badly. Why haven’t I made any yet?
Looks over at 7mo attempting to climb all the things and bump her head repeatedly. Riiiiiiight. :/
This tea is so good though. I just bought 50g more for $4.50 while the sale is still on. Gonna have to finish my DT Pumpkin Chai to clear out a tin! #bestproblems
Yum! Thanks to Valerie for the sample!
I just realised that I like Assam teas, and while I don’t know what “Assam Melody” is in comparison, that doesn’t change that I like the base of this tea. The coconut makes it a bit creamy, while the apple and vanilla give it a bit of sweetness. It rolls around nicely in my mouth with each sip giving you a bit of a different flavour – - – I suppose that makes each sip as unpredictable as the Doctor. :O
The vanilla makes me think of Earl Grey too, which isn’t a bad thing.
I’m glad I got to try it, but I wouldn’t have bought it. Adagio teas are a bit too pricey, and I’d only be doing it for the pretty tin. (And $24 for a pretty tin is… sadly not worth it). On a sidenote, these are 6oz tins, so they must be a lot bigger than the ones from DavidsTea!
Oh – I noticed that 5 new people started following me in the last 24 hours. I don’t know what I’m doing, but HI! :D #NoPressureToBeEntertainingYIKES
I’m not a big chamomile fan, but this tea has grown on me. All night my neck has been super stiff; the baby was sick, and I was worn out. A few sips of this and I’m already relaxed, and my neck feels better. Loosey goosey.
I asked my bf to open my tin of this the other day and it slipped and dumped an oz or so on the floor. Aaaaargh. Oh well. I think this is one I’ll get a full refill of- add to my permanent collection. No use crying over spilt tea. :p I can get him to pay for it. HahahahHa.
Valerian roooooooot…… ZzzZzzzzz
I am really enjoying this Assam. It may even make it as my go-to black for the mornings! I could see what DavidsTea has for an Assam just to compare the two, but… Zen Tea also does sales so I’m probably best just sticking with this and buying it on sale.
Mmmmm… so bold and creamy and smooth, with a nice ceylon-like aftertaste. No bitterness=\0/
