1774 Tasting Notes
Thanks Janelle for letting me try this one! (167)
It’s not a bad tea, but this blend isn’t as memorable as Santa’s Little Helper or Read My Lips. I do like the banana walnut combo, and I can actually taste the calendula too, but it is a little salty, like Tea Sipper mentioned in their review.
I’m still happy I tried it!
ETA Oh. Oh, YUCK. As it cools it really tastes like Play-Doh. No exaggeration. Swooooosh
I drank this one earlier without really knowing what it was. It smelled sweet, rich and a little spicy and tasted fruity and… heavy?
When I looked it up I realized it was orange citrus and once I had that in my head it was very obvious to my taste buds. Whoops. I need to get better at identifying it without knowing what I’m drinking. :P
Overall this is a nice tea, but I think I’d prefer an actual EG to this one. Thanks Sil for letting me steal a scoop!
Backlog: I made this one yesterday on the iron stove too! We were sitting in the living room, just chatting by candlelight when everyone wanted tea!
No one ever wants tea! :O
So I grabbed my TARDIS teapot and made a pot of this one. Our guests don’t really drink tea (in fact they’ve NEVER had EG), but I thought this one was standard enough that it was more likely to be enjoyed.
And I was right! Good thing they’re not like Sil!
Our power went out Saturday night so Sunday was a fail when it came to making tea. Partway through the day we realized we still had warm water so I made a cup of this with warm water and it turned out decently.
I was desperate.
Later, we had family stop by with wood for the cast iron stove, and once we had that ripping hot, I was able to make another cup of this properly, and to share! It was perfect.
