1763 Tasting Notes
I decided I wanted to try one of my WP teas, but I chose not to drink Campfire Blend because I wasn’t craving smoke. Well… whoops? Should have gone for Manistee Blend or North Winds.
So this is fairly smoky, with a little bit of sweetness. And cocoa! I’m enjoying it but I’m not going to rate it as it’s not what I was craing. It’d be better as an evening tea.
I had this earlier today after steeping it for over 12 hours. The sample came with my tentacle mug that I bought last week.
I was REALLY impressed that this was a green rooibos. I’m getting sick of red rooibos and I find it irritates my throat a little, but green rooibos hasn’t let me down. And this tea, is PERFECT Cotton Candy. It’s light and fluffy (for a liquid) and SO VERY sweet.
I’m not certain if I want to buy more of it because I generally don’t add sweetener to my teas, and this has plenty of sugar in it, but for those who want something sweet and like cotton candy, then this will be your new favourite tea!
Sipdown!!! Woooo! I had 6 oz of this and now it’s gone and that’s a relief. I have an awesome TARDIS keepsake tin and I’ve cleared my oldest tea off the list and I’m just happy. 6 oz is A LOT of one tea, especially an Adagio tea.
It’s nice today. Blueberry vanilla goodness. I guess I’ll get more. Eventually. In a year or more? :P
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!
