1770 Tasting Notes
Sil knows I’m experimenting with unflavoured teas, so she’s been super helpful sending me tons of teas to experiment with. Thank you! :D (219)
This was a nice assam – slightly malty, with a little bit of tobacco – but oh, so smooth. I didn’t even need to add milk or anything to it! I need to drink a few more of my loose samples down, and then it’s time to dive into my Lord Petersham bag!
Thanks Dexter for sending me a sample of this. I brewed it warm because I’m a sucker for punishment but I’ll ice the last little bit later. This is such a lovely tea. It’s really delicious and juicy.
To be honest though, I can’t remember what the difference is between this and the melon oolong, but with the oolong I can worry less about using hot water. I’m happy I was able to try this though! :D
Thanks Sil for this one. I wonder if I overleafed it or oversteep it. It’s strong and a little bitter. That doesn’t sound like Martha. Martha is so kickass.
I wish she wasn’t so doe-eyed about the Doctor but I love that she became such a badass and moved on to live her own life instead of being in his shadow…
Glad I got to try this one. The caramel is a nice touch. Not my favourite fandom blend, but… they’re really hard to make good. I g ot something salty in the base too. Or maybe I’m just more attuned to some kind of salt taste because my oolong yesterday was also super salty. :O
