952 Tasting Notes
My first cup of this was so thick and reminiscent of molasses. It was too much so I had to dump it and steep it for 3 min. It was so much better!
It’s very strong, and malty, and slightly sweet and full of depth. I can’t wait to try the other samples.
That’s the last of this!
Until I grab my re-order from Sil. :)
Ok, now that the new-tea buzz has faded, I’m not so in I’ve with this tea. It just seemed like it wasn’t spicy or complex enough.
So far cocoberry and pumpkin chai are my favourites, and I think I might prefer Mulberry Magic over Pistachio Cream. So far.
I love this ridiculous tea, and enjoyed it while getting through my re-watch of Cloud Atlas. I can’t believe how much that story has gotten under my skin, and then writing was so charming. I’ll re-read it someday, but for now I’ll try to read something new.
Anyway, I think I should keep 20g of this around. It’s not for everyday, but it’s nice to have around.
Thank you Incendiare. This does remind me of chocolate coated strawberries…. It’s tasty but a bit mild. I wonder if the Della Terra version would be better.
Today I woke up early to see my bf and his Dad off as they drive across the country with our stuff. My job is to take care of the child and the cat but I just can’t wake up.
This tea was tasty, but didn’t give me the zip I was hoping for!
Just what I needed after moving out of our place and driving 5 hours with the cat and baby. I added a bit of half and half to make it fancier.
Oh man, I hope that whoever decides to hire me isn’t looking at my Pinterest site because they will know how obsessed I am with Sherlock, Doctor Who and other things. And I really try to restrain myself too! I try not to pin pics that are just “OMG look at those eyes” and “I want to ruffle his hair” cause that’s too obvious, but there are still a lot of pictures there
Tumblr is great because of the gifs etc, but the OCD part of me just likes pinning to boards much much more…
And hanging around there led to me drinking this tea, and thinking happy fuzzy warm Johnlock thoughts because even if the show doesn’t go where I need it to go (now, damn you fanfic!), I still have the fiction to fall back on!
And this tea too… Well not really, it’s a sipdown, but I WILL need to get some Sherlock teas to drink while I think Sherlock-thoughts.
Obsessed much? Yep. How does this even happen? Oh right – the Kindle Paperwhite with the built-in light that lets me read waaaaay past my bedtime…
Right and this tea is good. It does start off strong and muddied but it evens out at the end of the sip. It’s dark with bursts of cinnamon, but then the bergamot and vanilla tone things down, and maybe, maybe things will work out.
No mustaches in this reunion though. Not that I’m anti-mustache – I love how everyone flipped out.
Thank you Heather Martin for the sample and thank you Shmiracles (I might have known!) for passing some on to her! :D I love how teas get around.
This. Is. So. Good.
This tea is the anti-lemon myrtle from Granville as this has mate to kick me awake. That’s the idea at least, but so far it’s not working. Gimme my other cup!
But wow. This tea is just so bright and creamy. Where does this cream come from? Maybe I’m mixing it up with the lemon? Either way, I’m getting honey and lemon notes and it’s very refreshing and enjoyable. I only snagged 10g but I’m happy I gave it a shot. This seems like it would be great when I want a bit of sunshine in a cup.
