1591 Tasting Notes
Mmmmm…. this mostly tastes like chamomile. I get that it’s because Bruce needs to stay calm so he doesn’t hulk out but it totally goes against the “I’m always angry” reveal in Avengers.
So it’s a good, soothing tea but not one I would crave often. Maybe before bed?
But the hulk should totally be an always angry tea I think.
Ok, this one is also pretty great, but it’s Phil, so I expected greatness.
Can I make a small confession? When I first watched Avengers I really didn’t know much about Phil… That was quickly rectified after reading a few Avengers fanfics because Coulson is so freakin’ amazing. He’s an Avengers wrangler and that is no easy feat.
How does it taste? It has lots of roasty mate goodness that makes me think of brisk coffee in the morning, and there’s also a little bit of caramel/nuttiness to add more depth. It’s good, but it’s mostly mate so if that isn’t your thing, stay away.
I think I enjoyed Thor a bit more because of the soft apricot/peach notes, but this is very close…
ETA: Holy. I’m at 178 teas and it’s only the 6th! Guess 150 isn’t too unreasonable a goal for April 30th!
I didn’t want to push my Avengers tea binge too much further because I was worried I’d start to rush through and not enjoy them, but I am ENJOYING this tea.
It’s thai chai! Creamy coconut and lemon grass! I guess there’s black tea in there too which help make it a little bolder than it might be otherwise but I am totally digging this. YES.
Thank you Shmiracles! (179)
3/5 Avengers added to shopping list so far
Hooo boy, this is American! American like Apple Pie! But it’s Apple Pie with attitude (i.e., cardamom and ginger and cinnamon!). It’s tasty!
I did Tony, so it’s time for Steve. I’ve had 4 of the Avengers already – can I squeeze in any more tonight?
So much tea. (What did you guys think I was talking about?)
Thank you Shmiracles! I hope Ozli enjoys the rest of it. :D (180)
Phew. This one does not immediately go onto my re-order list which is a relief because I’ve already got Loki and Thor and haven’t tried the rest, and at 3 oz a tea, how many can one reasonably order just for oneself?
This is good, don’t get me wrong. It’s bold. It’s flashy and in your face, and… well that’s Tony? There might be the faintest sweetness in there, although I’m sure that would be aboslutely denied if directly pointed out… This just isn’t one I would crave very often.
Thank you Shmiracles! The rest of this is off to ozli! (181)
Wow. This smells so amazing. I’m not really a huge of jasmine, but I DO like spearmint and gunpowder tea, and these really, really blend well together. I’m even enjoying the jasmine in it.
OMG. So, so far I want to buy Thor and Loki teas. They’re in a ‘ship so I will save a little on them, but… what if I end up wanting to buy ALL the Avengers teas? I’m a little worried about continuing on…
This tea just screams “GREEN” to me and makes me think of Loki’s green eyes. Ok, I’ll have to send the rest to Ozli!
Thank you Shmiracles!
“I like it. ANOTHER” ran through my head as I finished up my cup of Cecil, and with those thoughts in my brain, how can I NOT choose Thor?
I had to. It’s friggin Thor and he will not be refused.
Does anyone else find that Avengers fic reads like it’s very fast paced and the narration would leave you breathless if you read it aloud? Just a thought.
So, this tea:
I was surprised that the rec steep temp was 185, but who am I to argue with Cara about her blend? I will do what I’m told. Except I over steeped this..
But it’s ok! It tastes like dark rich mate with peach notes! And apricot! The mate is so roasty and rich that it really reminds me of coffee, but I expect that’s from steeping it twice as long as requested.
Thank you Shmiracles! My avengers tea tasting is off to a fantastic start!
ETA: Finishing my cup. Still loving every sip.
This tastes good but I think part of that is because I just ate a blue whale candy and that’s adding a lot of sweetness to it
Ok, several sips later this is good but not mindblowingly amazing. Sorry Cecil. I love you, I truly do, but your tea does not speak to me as cleverly and beautifully as you do.
Poor, poor Cecil. Poor Night Vale. You guys – things are getting pretty intense! And dangerous.
I taste creamy lemongrass, and a little bit of ginger. I’m not even sure if lemongrass is in this, but that’s what I get.
