Not sure if I’m grumpy or what, but I don’t feel like talking about tea today. Too bad because this one is great. SO great. I’ll just sip it in silence.
(unrelated: I’m at home today and after cleaning the house all morning, I’m now relaxing in a sundress because I want to enjoy spring, and sweat pants, because i’m cold!)
Thank you Kat Maria! I cold-brewed this overnight and am enjoying it right now. I just took a bit as the rest will go to TK. (yay! decaf!) It’s really good. Naturally sweet without being crazy about it, and I can taste the fruit. I don’t know why I didn’t expect this to taste as good as it does, but I’m very pleasantly surprised.
Y’know what? Just because it’s highly unlikely I’ll hit 150 this month doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try. So I will. I am. (174)
Thanks to Sil for passing this one on to me. It’s a nice orangy-chai that’s quite good! I like orange, and it matches well with all these spices. It makes me think of holidays!
Another sipdown! (175)
I don’t think I’ll hit 150 this month. I ended up doing more swaps than I had planned, but it’s cool. I’m cool with that. :D
This is a nice green. I can definitely taste the strawberry and vanilla. I don’t think I’d purchase it – I don’t drink many greens to begin with – but it IS nice.
I’m drinking this today instead of A&D’s Assam because I’m trying to rotate it out before it hits the 1 year mark. I’ve had it 9 months now and I don’t think it’s lost any flavour at all, but sadly, it just can’t compete with my Tiger Assam. It has a Tiger on the tin! I’m suggestible and that gives it extra BAM for that.
Still this is a nice cup, and doesn’t require anything to enjoy it!
This one would have been 1 year in July but I made sure to drink it now before it got stale! I’ve only got 3 teas now that are over 1 year: Tardis, a Russian Caravan and an echinecea herbal blend that I drink only when I have to. I’m happy about that.
I dropped the rating on this one because I’m not so excited about rooibos as I was when I first got into tea. It’s good – but I so rarely crave this one.
And that’s it for this. Like I said before, it has some nice fruity notes, but it’s nothing exceptional.
Happy Easter you guys!
Apparently Easter in Ontario means NOTHING is open Friday or Sunday. Or practically nothing. :O We tried to go shopping on Friday for groceries and all the big stores were closed – EVEN the Walmart. Today we wanted to go look at an XBOX One but NOTHING was open except the EB Games at Eaton center (the heart of Toronto, ntxbye)…
Some of you are used to this. I’m from BC – I’ve worked plenty of Good Friday’s and Easter Sunday’s so I didn’t expect anything but Government stores to close today…
