1774 Tasting Notes
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)
I don’t think I’ve actually reviewed this one yet, although I’ve had it several times. I think I’m halfway through my tin (one of the ones in the 3/$30 promo), so it’s time to do it!
So, it’s a white/green chai! That’s unusual, right? But I can sorta kinda barely taste the tea under all the spices, and the spices are more delicate than your typical chai. I can taste creamy coconut and spicy cardamon and cinnamon. Oh, and the peppercorn. It’s nice. It’s a little relaxing. I haven’t decided if I would need to repurchase this, but I’m going to ennjoy eevery cup until it’s gone.
AND OMG. I love that when you scroll the rating bar, it tells you clearly what the rating is. I’m using my Surface and it seems to work much better than before!
I thought I might as well have another pot of this, just to get that tin off my shelf and to help make room for my incoming Adagio order.
(as well as some other teas I am working on buying atm. :O :O :O)
This was a little boring drinking it two days in a row, but I added maple agave and that fixed it right up!
Now to edit the information for this tea….
