1413 Tasting Notes
Thank you Roswell Strange. Thank you.
I forget how much I love this tea because I drink it so rarely but it’s… amazing. It’s just what I needed after a stressful day at work. I’m on my second steep and I’m getting ready to pick the mulberries out so I can eat them.
And I take it back – Rivertea’s Mulberry White is good, but it’s not creamy coconutty like this. It’s good but it’s a different animal. I probably want both around.
I’m not going to lie. I chose this tea because I was thinking about Dean, and then realized I had a SPN tea for Dean! (Well for Destiel, but… but… what’s Dean without Cas? :O Let’s hope I never find out).
Anyway, I watched Catching Fire on Monday and it made me think that about how Dean and Katniss are both stubborn pigheaded dicks who are determined to die so that their siblings can live. Or others who work their way into that ‘honoroured’ position like Peeta did. (And probably Cas). Anyway, could you imagine if Dean and Katniss existed in an AU and were each others codependent weakness?
They’d be pushing each other out of the way so they could jump directly into whatever possible danger there was. They’d probably do more damage to each other with all the pushing than the actual thread could have.
And that’s my tea note for today. :P (so far at least)
I opened this up so I could send a bit on to 221Tea so I could introduce her to the dark/addictive side of adagio fandom teas, and realized I should have a cup too because I couldn’t remember it. I like it. It’s still good!
It’s a complicated mess of flavours that work out well, much like the complicated mess of feelings of Sherlock returning to John. Oh, but there’s something about Mary…
Thank you Kat_Maria for this sample! I drank one bag last night and couldn’t stop myself from drinking the other today. It was that good.
It’s a smooth black cherry tea with a little bit of creaminess and lots of bright cherry notes. It’s a really cheerful tea for such a dismal snowy spring day. It almost makes me think of vanilla as well. I’m going to resteep this when I’m done to make sure I enjoy it to the MAX.
OMG. This is freaking AMAZING. I don’t think I’d ever had this before but I added it to my wishlist after reading some reviews, and then I snapped it up when Shadowfall sold some of her stash. YES!
It’s very mellow black that’s almost creamy, and tastes like honey and malt, and I feel like I should just keep sipping it instead of typing up my note because it’s cooling as I write!
But no worries folks, this is a re-steeper!
I may, and I’m not sure yet, but I MAY like this more than the PTA! :O
This tea smells like chocolate strawberry. It’s so good I don’t ever want to drink it; I could stand there and huff the bag all day. I couldn’t do that though. That’s just silly.
So I steeped it for 2 minutes. It smells so strongly of chocolate strawberry that the first few sips were disappointing! It tasted like muted strawberry chocolate with earthy puerh… But a few sips after that I paid more attention to the flavour and I feel like this is a flavourful blend I will want to resteep later this afternoon. And probably re-stock when I do my eventual order… The puerh is noticable but not overwhelmingly earthy/dirty etc and it goes well with the sweetness of the chocolate strawberry.
This was part of the shared order with Sil and Kittenna and I have to say that whoever picked this one did a good job! Thanks! I didn’t really pick much out myself but I’m happy with the Lupicia teas that we decided to share.
