1677 Tasting Notes
We went to the zoo today and I rushed out the door without any tea and while we had a great AWESOME day, (especially because no one was there!) I’m totally drained and in need of tea.
I wanted something fantastic, and this is it.
I can’t believe JustJames sent a sample of this as I would totally be tempted to hoard it. :P OTOH, when you have something fantastic it’s exciting to see how others like it too. Either way, THANK YOU. :P
And so, how to describe this? I wish I hadn’t drank all of this today in a way because my head isn’t quite able to describe this.
It’s liquid moonlight. Vanilla dancing with cornflowers. Soft perfume floating in the air and a touch of sweet blackberry fruit to give it some weight.
I had Adagio’s Jane Austen Mafia yesterday, and this is the grown-up version of that. Superb.
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.
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!
