943 Tasting Notes
This is my standby tea for roleplaying day. It’s just a great tea, and one that I always want to re-steep, which makes it easier/quicker for me to refill while we play!
And here’s another fantastic sample from JustJames. The base is light and delicate in a way that I associate with french teas, while the smell of violets pervades the cup.
This is an enjoyable cup, but not one that I would go out of my way to pursue – I just don’t think I’m THAT into floral teas. Still, I won’t say no to the occasional cup.
Oh, gosh. I really love this. Smooth creamy orange, and soothing chamomile… I’m hoping to get more from VariaTEA in a swap! :)
(no. I didn’t add Kahlua to this. I’m not much of a drinker).
Hmmm. This one isn’t as good with Gingerbread Kahlua. It’s still tasty, but not nearly as good as Gingerbread tea as a mix. (Probably for obvious reasons)
The secret to this tea is to brew 10oz of this tea, then mix a combo of 6 more oz Gingerbread Kahlua and milk.
I am in love!
And that’s the last of this. I enjoyed every cup of it, but don’t feel like I need to re-stock it any time soon. I realized that my H&S teas were a bit flat because I was underleafing. Silly me. These Nordic mugs are 16 oz – not the 12 I’m used to. It still tastes a little “thin” but I’m enjoying the stony fruits.
Bye for now!
I bought this on a terrible whim at Winners. I remember they had fancy french teas but I forgot to look, and was already in the check-out line. And so I was determined that IF I saw tea I would buy it because it would be awesome.
But it wasn’t awesome French tea. It was silly Keep Calm tea. And bagged.
But it was $4 and it tastes ok. Now I have a silly tin.
Goodbye my sweet kenyan tea. Goodbye!
(I seriously need to order some more of this though)
Thank you JustJames for this sample! I read your review, and I have to say that your wife is missing out, although I can see why it would make a great perfume.
Each sip is like a mouthful of fruit. It’s delicate though, so I couldn’t immediately identify it as strawberry. I find that as it cools slightly (my colour changing mug is still at full colour) that the tartness from the rhubarb makes an appearance at the end of the sip. I feel like a dash of sugar would probably bring that out more, but I’m enjoying this so much I don’t really want to mess around.
I have a feeling that this is a tea that will hover around in the back of my mind for months, much like TARDIS did, until I finally break down and get my hands on more. :P
Thanks again JustJames! This was a delight! :D I love how the flavours linger on after each sip.
I’m still here guys, don’t worry. I’ve just retreated into mostly-lurker mode without even realizing, partly because we’ve had company for the last week (and until next Monday), and partly because I don’t have as much free time as I’m used to.
This is a great cup. I LOVE IT. Also, I love that the baby loves it. We’re going for a walk tomorrow and I plan to put that in her cup so she has something warm to sip on.
