1397 Tasting Notes
I’ve had this for nearly a year and I still have 2 oz of it! :O I nearly forgot how tasty it is. It’s very malty with a bit of honey. It’s dark and rich and a nice start to my morning. I’m off work today and tomorrow to cover for J (he has to invigilate some exams/do office hours) so I’m just hanging out with my toddler, watching her run laps in her room around her train table!
I think today will be another Adagio sampler tasting day as I build a sampling box for Ozli and think she’ll enjoy some of those. Maybe I’ll send her some of this too…. It’s just so tasty and I’m pretty sure I bought it during the last spring sale so it was well priced. Teavivre is pretty great.
Mmmmm…. this mostly tastes like chamomile. I get that it’s because Bruce needs to stay calm so he doesn’t hulk out but it totally goes against the “I’m always angry” reveal in Avengers.
So it’s a good, soothing tea but not one I would crave often. Maybe before bed?
But the hulk should totally be an always angry tea I think.
Ok, this one is also pretty great, but it’s Phil, so I expected greatness.
Can I make a small confession? When I first watched Avengers I really didn’t know much about Phil… That was quickly rectified after reading a few Avengers fanfics because Coulson is so freakin’ amazing. He’s an Avengers wrangler and that is no easy feat.
How does it taste? It has lots of roasty mate goodness that makes me think of brisk coffee in the morning, and there’s also a little bit of caramel/nuttiness to add more depth. It’s good, but it’s mostly mate so if that isn’t your thing, stay away.
I think I enjoyed Thor a bit more because of the soft apricot/peach notes, but this is very close…
ETA: Holy. I’m at 178 teas and it’s only the 6th! Guess 150 isn’t too unreasonable a goal for April 30th!
I didn’t want to push my Avengers tea binge too much further because I was worried I’d start to rush through and not enjoy them, but I am ENJOYING this tea.
It’s thai chai! Creamy coconut and lemon grass! I guess there’s black tea in there too which help make it a little bolder than it might be otherwise but I am totally digging this. YES.
Thank you Shmiracles! (179)
3/5 Avengers added to shopping list so far
Hooo boy, this is American! American like Apple Pie! But it’s Apple Pie with attitude (i.e., cardamom and ginger and cinnamon!). It’s tasty!
I did Tony, so it’s time for Steve. I’ve had 4 of the Avengers already – can I squeeze in any more tonight?
So much tea. (What did you guys think I was talking about?)
Thank you Shmiracles! I hope Ozli enjoys the rest of it. :D (180)
