1774 Tasting Notes
Ok, confession time! I’ve always enjoyed this tea, but it’s never been a knock me off my socks sorta tea. You know what I mean, right? But I wanted to really like it because I like Sil and ButikiTeas.
Anywyas,this has gone from a 78 to an 88. I figured out what I needed – a longer steep time. Maybe 5 minutes? I want MORE flavour and this is just great now. Lovely rhubarb, slightly tart, slightly sweet and a bit of graham in there to weigh it down. YES. FINALLY I GET IT NOW.
So I’m currently drinking more Muharajah/Samurai Chai from Teavana, but I don’t want to log it two days in a row – it’s just great for getting past my sinues and this stupid cold.
Because of Steepster issues yesterday I couldn’t log this tea from VariaTEA. It’s a good thing I like it because she sent me A LOT of it. But with just a tiny dash of sugar to mellow out the hibiscus, this is really nice. Also soothing on a poor throat. So thank you!
Thanks to VariaTEA for the generous bag of this tea. It’s quite zippy and very good, especially as this doesn’t have the rock sugar in it. Or if it does, I can’t tell – unlike the premixed sample Teavana likes to ship out (and which is nauseatingly sweet).
Thank you! This is just what I needed at 6 AM to get me going!
This was one of the many samples VariaTEA gave me. It was difficult to chose, I gotta tell you.
This one was quite pleasant! I was worried becausse I’ve had a few 52 Teas fall flat, and with the extra shipping etc to Canada, it just didn’t seem worth it to order from them anymore. But this may have changed my opinion! It was really nice and the banana flavouring was perfect!
Yum! Sore throats and sinus aches are so crappy, but this tea makes it more bearable! :D
Looks like I wasn’t able to avoid this cold after all but I don’t mind so long as the little bear doesn’t get sick! Also, I wouldn’t want to call in sick in my first month of working because she’s sick, but I’ll have to do it because you can’t send the kiddo in to daycare sick. :| So, fingers crossed! I’ll make her some of this tomorrow!
