1623 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! I finished this off, while TK finished off Metropolitan Tea Company’s Kid’s Bumble Fruit, and now I’m back at 183. Woo!
It’s funny – I hadn’t rated this on my spreadsheet and wasn’t sure what to put it at but then decided on 80. I log on here and I’d already decided that months previously! So, I’m consistent! :D
Thank you Sil for sharing this with me! I steeped it for 4 minutes and that seemed to be the right way to do it. This tea is a mild chai, with hints of orange and vanilla. I wonder if I should have steeped it even longer? It’s nice, with a bit of punch but Amy could definitely be punchier. :P Maybe Rory mellowed her out a bit?
And with this cup done, I am at 186! (and as Sil would like to point out, with all my incoming orders I’m more like 208), but that’s ok. I’m topped up on Butiki, WP, RiverTea, Adagio, A&D, TTC etc so I can’t see how anyone else could tempt me with a sale now! issues you a challenging stare
Thanks Sil for sharing this with me. Someone must have had a particularly mouth-watering review because it was on my wishlist.
So my first cup of this was knocked over by the child and spilled all over my computer desk. Thankfully both laptops were saved! Yikes. There are seriously 2 safe spots in the entire house – she can reach everything!!!
My second cup is much better; I could drink it! It’s sweet and smokey and just a little bitter. I’ll have to try a lower temperature for the last bit, but I enjoyed trying this!
Thanks Sil! I’ve enjoyed so many flavoured teas from Lupicia, but I hadn’t actually considered try their straight teas. I’m happy for the chance to now!
It tastes like bread and honey! Wow. That’s actually the best tea I could have grabbed for breakfast! It’s also an easier tea to drink- less kicking me in the face with boldness etc. As it cool, it becomes a little bitter, but it’s still very tasty. I just better finish it up quickly!
