Recent Tasting Notes
Thanks to Sil for passing on some of this from last year’s Christmas swap! I found it to be quite enjoyable – lavender EGs on their own are a bit potent, but mixed with the EGC? Delicious! Not overly floral, but flavourful and different. I’m not catching a great deal of bergamot, but I am guessing that neither of the two teas involved in the blend were particularly bergamot-heavy. A tasty treat!
on the 9th day of christmas tea swap, Alphakitty gave to us…some delicious toffee and a custom blended tea. I’m going to have this one again when i’m not so exhausted as i’m pretty sure i goofed on the steeping. I really did enjoy getting to try a new tea out – especially since it’s a custom creation! I’m not quite ready to tackle that kind of amazingness myself :)
Thank you Alphakitty!
What a lovely tea and a beautiful interpretation of 9 Ladies Dancing! I love how AlphaKitty thought of fancy holiday parties and chose Earl Grey teas as the bases for this custom blend that she created. The result is a delicious tea that is subtly Earl Grey-ish, with lovely notes of lavender and rose, and a creamy overtone. So really delicious and luxurious … and indeed FANCY!
YUM ~ AlphaKitty, my dear, you could probably do well selling this blend … I’d certainly buy it! (And I’d buy the candy too!)
Thank you Alphakitty for this yummy blend! I can taste the lavender and rose in this blend as well as hints of the cream on the finish of this tea. The funny thing is for the longest time I thought this package would contain a Lapsang. At least that’s what the package smelled like (I didn’t open…just sniffed the wrapping paper). So this delicate EG was a super nice surprise! And I LOVE the added Toffee which goes REALLY well with the tea. I might need the recipe! Ok no might I do if you are willing to share!
