1708 Tasting Notes
Thank you Roswell Strange for letting me try this tea! I’ve had bad luck with 52 Teas lately but this one is just whammo-perfect!
It tastes really bright and fresh! It’s just… boom! Here’s your cucumber! And then as you’re thinking yeah, this is pretty good, it fades and you can taste the mango as the sip finishes.
Shadowfall sent me this with our last joint order, and I just polished it off today! (200)
Yum: chocolate. It’s not an exceptional tea so I’m drinking it with milk. Thanks for sharing it!
And I’m at 200 teas! VariaTEA bumped me up but now I’m under my panic level. Now to drink drink drink before my swap from 221B and my teas from Simple Loose Leaf arrive.
I think I’ll aim for 175 for the end of the month!
This is a mostly mate tea, I think. There’ sa bit of sweetness to it, and a little bit of cinnamon, but it’s really mostly mate. And mate is ok, especially when I feel like I need more kick than tea will give me, but I’m not certain t hat mate actually does effect me more/less than tea. #experiments
It’s good. I guess this is what I think of when I think of my Night Vale blends, and now that I’ve had most of them in the last 24 hours, I can see that there really isn’t that much mate after all! Strange. But the Sheriff’s Secret Police are pretty integral.
Where were they in that last ep? With their helicopters? :| #shakesfist
And on to the next Night Vale tea! I think I have maybe 3 left?
This is one that I know I like, and it’s not dark/mate/desert-y like I associate with this fandom. It’s light and airy and mostly peach. I like it, but don’t think I need more of it.
I should try to steep it longer next time to coax more flavour out!
The first few sips of this weren’t anything special, but then it subsided and now I’m getting a creamy EG. It’s a little astringent – I should have steeped at 205F instead of 212F. Whoops. Guess I was too busy not staring at the hooded figures to brew this correctly.
It’s good. I wouldn’t restock it though.
