drank Irish Breakfast by Bewley's
91 tasting notes

Some friends of mine went to Ireland a few months back, and gave me a cup and saucer with shamrocks all over, very cute. They also added a few bags of this tea, because they said that they could not find any Irish Breakfast tea where they went. I finally made a cup, and it’s actually very nice and surprising! I tried it first without milk or sweetener, and it would have been fine that way, but the bag did suggest that it went well with milk, and that’s the way I’m drinking it now. Typically if I add milk, I add sweetener, but this is just great as it is.

drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas
91 tasting notes

Today I tried this as a latte, and boy was it delicious. I steeped the tea at double strength, and frothed an equal amount of milk, then combined with the addition of some sweetener. Now that tasted like coconut cream pie, much more so than just a regular brewing of it.

drank Nepal First Flush by Adagio Teas

Apparently today is a cleaning the house sort of day, which also lends well to drinking tea all day. This is a good cup of tea, perfect for sipping, cleaning, and then coming back to it.

drank Gunpowder by Adagio Teas
91 tasting notes

I made a cup of this tea at work tonight, and it very much reminded me of miso soup. Then I wanted some miso soup. So I stopped by the grocery store and picked up a few packets, and when I got home started up the kettle to heat some water. Now, the instructions say to put the miso mix in a bowl or large mug (I opted for bowl), and add one cup of boiling water. So I measured the water in a measuring cup, and then proceeded to pour the water into the bowl, towards myself. Which was a very bad idea because it spilled right onto my stomach, and I now have 2nd degree burns. And a trip to the ER. All because of the tea, that I would still, even now, recommend. I guess I did inadvertently get burned from the gunpowder.

I love tea, but hate jasmine and melon, and am always looking to try something new — which is why my tea collection is out of control!
