1397 Tasting Notes
Bah. I was disappointed with this one again. Sometimes I feel like my Celestial Seasonings tea has more flavour than this one. :( I know adding milk makes that worse, but it just feels like it needs a dash.
Sad to say, but I’m dropping my rating on this. It’s no longer tin-worthy.
Also, how did I let myself run out of Butiki’s Pumpkin tea? :(
That’s the end of this one! I knew it wouldn’t last long. This tea delivers exactly what you’d expect from the title, and I really enjoy it, even if it is straightforward. I oversteeped it a little this morning, but that just gave it a bit of cremainess that I wasn’t expecting.
I think I’d pick up a little bit more if given the chance, but I wouldn’t go too far out of my way to do so. Can’t wait to get Sil and Kittenna their samples so I can see what they think.
I’m hanging out at York University for about 5 hours today, just to explore etc., but I sure wish I’d brought more than this with me! I suppose I’ll end up getting Tim Hortons coffee since there are 3 of those on campus. :P #teatraitor
I think it’s been decided that I prefer this over Mom’s Apple Pie. (thanks OMGsrsly)
And Mulberry Magic over Pistachio Cream.
And lots of teas over Sugar and Spice.
And the Pumpkin Chai is lacking depth of flavour.
But Cocoberry is a win!
I’m watching Season 3, Episode 1 of Downton Abbey. God, it’s getting so soapy but I adore it.
I love this ridiculous tea, and enjoyed it while getting through my re-watch of Cloud Atlas. I can’t believe how much that story has gotten under my skin, and then writing was so charming. I’ll re-read it someday, but for now I’ll try to read something new.
Anyway, I think I should keep 20g of this around. It’s not for everyday, but it’s nice to have around.
