1738 Tasting Notes
I’m waiting outside for a bus that isn’t coming after all, so now waiting for J to rescue me. But it’s ok. I have this tea.
It’s warm, and bright and sweet and comforting and it helps me forget the snow falling on my face and the lack of gloves.
I love it.
(our car didn’t have enough room for all our guests so I volunteered to bus to the breakfast place, except the Sunday bis schedule meant my by and turned before picking me up! Whoop s Good thing J can come back easily)
Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet for letting me try a sample of this.
It’s interesting. I can taste the puerh and spearmint and tulsi.
And the peppercorn and just possibly the star anise.
It’s forest-y, that’s for sure. And it’s an interesting idea, but I don’t know that I would go out of my way to get more.
So I guess I skipped this one on Christmas, but – well, the name doesn’t really call to me.
I guess it’s Christmassy because it has orange in it? That’s definitely orange. And there’s lemongrass. And maybe some spices? This isn’t too bad but now it’s cooling and getting a little bitter.
Oh and the baby is asleep and it’s only 9:40. I’m going to go to bed at/before 11:00 if I can and here’s hoping she’ll stay out the rest of the night!
I believe this was another one from Janelle. I really like it. It tastes like a minty green tea – Moroccan mint? – but there’s this earthiness lurking behind each sip. It’s an interesting contract, but this is definitely one of the better blends from David.
Also there’s no weird sparkles or additives.
This one probably doesn’t exist anymore either. :(
So thank you Janelle for letting me try it! Maybe I can get Herbal Infusions to try and resurrect it – I think they said something about making tea limited edition blending kits so you can resurrect favourite teas – this could be a good one for that.
I made a timolino of this today, except that I didn’t really. I think I turned my kettle off after putting it on as this water is barely warm. So the tea is barely steeped.
I’m still trying to get in the habit of getting to bed at a proper time for work, but the kiddo stays up until midnight and I keep ending up with 6 hours. My poor brain! Next week will ( easier bc she’ll be up earlier for daycare, while her dad is in class.
I will make real tea when I get to the office!
