1672 Tasting Notes
OMG. I don’t know what I did to deserve a surprise sample of this from JustJames but…. OMG. Will… will this be for sale? Please?
I love that the base is PTA, and I can definitely taste the coconut, toffee and caramel. It’s like a more complicated and grown-up Caramel Vanilla Assam. I would stock up on this IN A HEARTBEAT.
It’s buttery, and light, and the flavours are dancing on my tongue. :) Even as it cools to room temperature, it tastes amazing!
Bonus points for the Doctor Who reference. I have to say, I wasn’t immediately impressed by River when we met her with 10, until the end of Forest of the Dead. She just seemed too cocky and bold, and what was she to MY Doctor? :P But she just got better and better. So, now I’m scouring youtube for fanvids: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGmc5Rr-2_I and if that’s not sad enough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9UiErrKHJo
Thanks again for the sample!
This is the perfect cup to start my day! I risked overleafing to make sure the caramel vanilla notes came through perfectly, and it worked!
It’s been a busy weekend with family visiting so my notes have been short, but I expect to be back to regular note posting soon! Also, I want to try all the exciting samples from JustJames, but need to give it a little more time to make sure I can dedicate the time and frame of mind required to trying them!
When my pack of Ceylon Star came in, I got a sample of this and had to try it because Roswell Strange told me they heard, “The blend was changed for Alpine Punch. They added black pepper and also upped the amount of coconut in the blend by a significant amount.”
I like coconut, so I was excited. I’m not sure if I recognize a difference because it’s been so long since I had not, but I think this tastes much better than I remembered.
