1706 Tasting Notes
Goodbye yummy black Strawberry tea!
Happy New Years Eve to everyone. :)
We are doing nothing special today, but I did watch about 4 episodes of Supernatural (hello season 5!) so I’m very happy with where the day went! We’re almost out of Christmas cookies and chips and all that junk so that’s also a bonus. Then I won’t be tempted to eat all the bad things if it’s not sitting in my cupboard, taunting me.
So when’s the last time you guys have had this tea?
After my daughter found my old bags and ripped/dump them out all over the coffee table I started to wonder the same thing. Time to give it a try!
You know, it’s not half that bad. :P I didn’t add milk or sugar which is strange because I used to drink this before I drank looseleaf and I HAD to add stuff before. It’s strong, and malty, and maybe a little tiny bit smokey.
It’s an appropriate tea to end the year with.
Another cup of this – it’s so good, but not as good once it’s cooled. I just brewed it then I had to try and put the bear to bed, but then she refused to stay down and my cup was ruined for naught. :P
Now she’s watching Robin Hood (yes, at 2:44 AM), while I watch Supernatural, and we’re just winding down more… It’s not a bad life. She’ll most certainly sleep in until noon.
Bright citrusy rooibos, I will miss you! (160)
And someday, eventually, I’ll make an order for American Tea Room.
I’m watching Supernatural 4×15 right now and, OMG. These brothers.
These brothers need to stop lying to each other. I get the impression that this will be a constant for the entire show.
So I made this an hour or so ago and left it in my Timolino because I didn’t want to turn the kettle on more than once. (Now that I have the new one, it doesn’t plug into the stove for some reason, and we don’t have enough outlets so right now I’m using it on the kitchen counter, but I have to pack it up and put it on a shelf afterwards because our kitchen is TINY)
And I totally forgot what tea this was. But then I remembered and I did a happy little dance. It was driving me crazy.
I love oatmeal raisin cookies and I love this tea. Sadly, I love sugar and I’ve been going overboard with all the treats the past few days. I made Turkey Dinner™ but I didn’t expect people to show up with so many cookies and chips and caramel popcorn and turtles. :O Once it’s gone I won’t be so tempted but it’s just sitting there…
I just ate 3 cookies while I wrote this note. :P Cookies, with my cookie tea.
