1774 Tasting Notes
This was one of the ones I bought from MissB! I’ve heard so much about S&V teas but haven’t made the jump to an order because I was afraid of the shipping costs (which are actually cheaper than listed to Canada if you just email and ask, or phone to place your order!)
Anyway, I was slightly disappointed with this, as I steeped it for 4.5 minutes and it was a little bitter. So perhaps I just need to steep it less. I’ll try it again tomorrow! (I’m not that disappointed. It smells really good and I fell it just needs a little tweaking to pop!)
Busy, busy weekend is over, and our guests are all gone, and the dishes are washed and now I’m enjoying some quiet time with J and the munchkin, both of whom I feel I barely saw at all since Thursday!
This is a great cup to relax with, even though it turns my cup a sickly green.
Really sickly. Just drink it in a dark cup so you don’t see it.
(I have 216 notices to catch up on/read! :O)
We had friends visiting all weekend and it was great, but we basically ate out for every meal or ordered in and all my dishes are dirty and there’s lot to clean up.
I’m going to drink this instead. :) I’m allowed to relax. People tire me out. Tea doesn’t. A dash of sugar and a splash of milk don’t hurt either!
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)
