1693 Tasting Notes
Oh, Ozli was totally right when she recommended adding brown sugar and a bit of milk to this. Just… wow. This made my evening! I wish I hadn’t eaten that chocolate bar earlier because this would have probably satisfied my sweet craving. Probably.
I can’t believe I’ve only got enough of this left for a cup! I’ll have to get more in November for the big sale!
I grabbed this one randomly from my Teavivre sample box in my quest to get a better understanding of oolongs.
I steeped it for 2 minutes at near boiling water. The result is an orange-brown liquor. The description says that sweet potatoes notes are predominant but it sore of reminds me of peach. And grape.
And… I wish I could get into this further, but everything is working against me today so I will leave this there and hope for more time with the other sample packet.
I’m drinking this while eating pocky sticks and the chocolate/chocolate combo is rather nice. The baby ate half my sticks though and now she’s giving me these wide blue eyes begging for more. That’s fine. I’ve got this tea. She can have the last stick.
We’re watching Hannibal (tv) and it’s pretty neat so far. Also, really gory and awful. The really cool thing about it is that my sister-in-law does a lot of the make-up/props for the show, so dead bodies, body parts, wounds etc are done by her and her co-workers. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to visit the shop she works in as it’s just in Toronto!
Thanks Courtney for the sample! (Down to 116!)
I’m not sure if I made it wrong, or what but I’m not really getting any coconut or strawberry from this. It just tastes grassy. Almost like a grassy oolong? It has a slight strawberry smell though so I know I have the wrong tea. I’ll just have to try it again in the future!
So I’m having this for breakfast. I’m bad at breakfasts when I’m not working. I just sorta get up at 10 and then eat at 1, and stay up until midnight or so – at least 1 hour after the baby goes to bed so I can FINALLY BE ALONE.
This makes a pretty damn good breakfast! And if I haven’t mentioned before,I really love the tins that Tea Spot uses. They have a metal insert under the lid so it’s double-sealed and I know my tea will stay fresh. Thank you, Tea Spot!
