1693 Tasting Notes
So I’ve been remiss in my tasting notes, but I have been working on Operation Sipdown today. I finished off two teas so far, and this one is a sipdown, courtesy of Sil.
I think I’m in agreeent with her that this is a decent tea, but not necessarily mindblowing. I want to add milk to it, and that is never a good sign. But, I’m happy I tried it because I had this impression i my head that Mariage Freres = INCREDIBLE.
Sipdown! I gave the rest of this to VariaTEA as well as a ton of other samples. I didn’t count them. I just kept adding. Mwahahah.
Hopefully she finds more of the Herbal Infusions teas that she enjoys!
This one is sorta flat. I’m less enthused about it now that I’m not drinking it on Christmas day. Sorry Santa’s Milk!
I started with this today and while it should have been amazing and wonderful, I didn’t time it properly and left it in too long and it’s too strong.
But I’m awake now after having had it!
(And that coffee from Tim Hortons that was hidden in a Lowe’s. Why are there Subways and Tim Hortons tucked away in hardware stores now? I don’t care – it’s where my bus gets off so I can always have Timmies before work if I want it!)
This was a quick and obvious sipdown as I get so excited about this tea that I MUST HAVE IT immediately. I’ll miss it, but it’s one less baggy floating around my collection, making it untidy. :P
(file that under weird reasons to drink a specific tea)
Thanks again MissB for surprising me with this!
