1766 Tasting Notes
Backlog: So, it figures I’m the only one to rate this one and I was sorta distracted while I drank it. I remember it was spearmint and orange, as was promised in the description, and that I liked it.
Not much else though. Sorry. That’s the hazards of drinking tea at work I suppose.
I’ll pass the rest to Sil and you can see what she thinks!
Hmmmm. I just can’t go wrong with this one!
And I felt better after my sore throat tea, so this was my celebratory tea! :D
It might be wasteful having it so late at night when I won’t be able to resteep it, but dangit, my tea is meant to be enjoyed! I can’t treat it all like some rare precious thing or I will die without drinking any or finding the ‘perfect time’.
(And that’s the end of that weirdo rant)
This is my 2nd oldest tea, right after Tetley’s Orange Pekoe. I hate having to drink it, but it feels like my throat is so constricted right now that I don’t want to drink anything. So maybe this will help me out.
And ugh. Really? I can’t believe I’m sick again! I think I had 1 week where I was fine, and in that weekk my daughter and husband got sick.. Now it’s back to me and the whole house is fairly miserable Except the kiddo – she’s pretty much over it.
But seriously. You guys must be sick of saying, “Get well Cavo”! :P I’m sick of needing to drink this tea.
So here’s the deal: I’ll finish this tea off in the next day or so, and then I won’t get sick again this year!!!! Bwahahaha.
This is another sipdown (145), and I think this is the first time I’ve reviewed it. I know what that means – I couldn’t make it work and didn’t want to review it until I did.
And today my throat is so sore/swollen that I probably couldn’t even tell if I HAD made it work. Oh well. There are plenty of Butiki teas that I love!
And I’ve got a few more coming through from Shadowfall – my package just hit Canadian Customs. I hope hope hope (!) that I get it by Friday!
And this was another sipdown (149) I finished off earlier today, after being happy with how Boston worked out.
This was a letdown-sipdown. There was no lovely hazelnut chocolate to this. It was just…. dusty? IDK. Not good. It might have been age I suppose. I originally bought this in April. Perhaps it just got stale?
I’m not sure what happened, but I am less impressed with this cup this time around. Strange! But it’s a sipdown and I’m at 150 so I AM happy about that.
I have a lot coming in, but Sil and I were both hoping to hit 150 for the end of Feb. It COULD happen! (30 teas are incoming. Possibly 40 if I get 10 fandom samples directly from Aun-Juli)
