938 Tasting Notes
Wow. I just got hit with a blast of cocoa. I love it. There’s not much puerh to this, but the chocolate and cinnamon are so good. The chili adds a nice bit of kick too!
I think this would make an awesome latte!
We went to the zoo today and I rushed out the door without any tea and while we had a great AWESOME day, (especially because no one was there!) I’m totally drained and in need of tea.
I wanted something fantastic, and this is it.
I can’t believe JustJames sent a sample of this as I would totally be tempted to hoard it. :P OTOH, when you have something fantastic it’s exciting to see how others like it too. Either way, THANK YOU. :P
And so, how to describe this? I wish I hadn’t drank all of this today in a way because my head isn’t quite able to describe this.
It’s liquid moonlight. Vanilla dancing with cornflowers. Soft perfume floating in the air and a touch of sweet blackberry fruit to give it some weight.
I had Adagio’s Jane Austen Mafia yesterday, and this is the grown-up version of that. Superb.
This is my standby tea for roleplaying day. It’s just a great tea, and one that I always want to re-steep, which makes it easier/quicker for me to refill while we play!
And here’s another fantastic sample from JustJames. The base is light and delicate in a way that I associate with french teas, while the smell of violets pervades the cup.
This is an enjoyable cup, but not one that I would go out of my way to pursue – I just don’t think I’m THAT into floral teas. Still, I won’t say no to the occasional cup.
Oh, gosh. I really love this. Smooth creamy orange, and soothing chamomile… I’m hoping to get more from VariaTEA in a swap! :)
(no. I didn’t add Kahlua to this. I’m not much of a drinker).
Hmmm. This one isn’t as good with Gingerbread Kahlua. It’s still tasty, but not nearly as good as Gingerbread tea as a mix. (Probably for obvious reasons)
The secret to this tea is to brew 10oz of this tea, then mix a combo of 6 more oz Gingerbread Kahlua and milk.
I am in love!
