i also have a massage scheduled for breakfast hah
now i will embarrass my sister and ask you all to friend her!
cuz i’d love to see her on steepster more http://steepster.com/oddree/
what a yummy tea. i just finished off my blood orange puerh and this is a great variation on the theme. the scent is kapow. and the flavor is a robust smokey dusky orange. like wet winter earth. it stands out. and i like any tea that has enough personality to stand out.
if you are feeling insane, and want to stay feeling insane, here is a ridiculous holiday themed dj mix to enjoy!!
i find the DJ Snake “Bird Machine [Jingle Bells Version]” song especially nutty.
and i feel that this kind of music does a lot to push oneself from a state of over-caffeinated glee over the tipping point and into a hyper crazed freak out!!!
my least favorite American Tea Room tea i’ve tried so far. but i still like it okay. i think it’s just not my thing is all. i’ve kinda been on a rose overload lately.
i’ll give it a rest and taste it again in a week or so.
now hey look!
my tea from Dammann arrived.
nicely done post office. nicely done.
Oh, Thank you BrewTeallySweet for the surprise sample! This has been on my shopping list for ages and now I’ve finally got a cup to try!
It smells like, OMG. Like…. just OMG.
(Sorry. That’s probably the best that my brain can do today)
But this tea deserves better I suppose. It tastes like fresh pastry from the oven, warm and gooey and sprinkled with cinnamon and other spices. There’s a touch of almond too and while I’m usually not excited about nuts, this just works perfectly.
I understand what the fuss is now.
Ummm, so I’ve been very derby lately. This is from sil but it is apparently also the same one that MissB sent me recently. I sucked that down mega…I was in a mood and needed consoling and this did it. But I didn’t realize when I asked for it that it was the same sil was sending. I also sorta forgot that she was sending any. This is not as bad as handing my tumbler to ShayneBear yesterday to have him sniff the contents, saying it was the Nutmeg Cream from Butiki, only to realize after he left that I had filled my tumbler with water before refilling with more NC from my Timolino. So yeah, I handed him water to sniff, which of course didn’t smell like anything, really, just faintly of the NC.
Anyway, made this this morning as I promised a friend I’d help her with some work today (arranged one of my days off this week for today) and I had to be at her place at 6am. Ouch. Not fun on a day off. But I was done helping her at 2:30 and then she took me to Noodle Box for lunch since Coras was closed by the time we got there. So this was my tea today.
And like last time, though I apparently neglected to make a note, I loved it. It is soooo good. I may need to order some. Cinnamon and almond…how can it be bad?
Tea #2 from the Here’s Hoping TTB
I’ve been wanting to try this tea for awhile, it seems I lucked out with this being the second tea I pulled out. After taking my first sip of this tea, I understand why so many people have recommended it to me, it’s absolutely delicious! It really does somewhat remind me of brioche, even though it has been years since I’ve had any. This tea has a very rich flavor with an almost buttery feeling to it and the almonds taste like almonds. That may seem like a silly thing to say, but so many times almond flavor comes across as artificial and somewhat gross. I’m really glad I ordered some of this in my first American Tea Room order, I can see myself quickly going through two ounces of it. It also gives me high hopes for the herbal version I ordered as well.
I think I’ve enjoyed all of the teas that Sil sent to me from American tea room, & this is no exception! This is a rich & sweet cup, with plenty of flavor & a sensation of clarity about it.
A nice start to my day. Thanks Sil!
Good morning. I have the gift of a few un-bespoke hours this morning to work on a writing project. Notting Hill, with its leather-bound personality, seemed appropriate for literary pursuits. Lapsang souchong lite, kind of.
Hm. Wanted to love this, and yet got little out of it. Little mint, little chocolate or cocoa. I mean, I could taste both, they were just really faint. Maybe I underleafed?
I’m having this with a 3 day old fancy donut that fell on the floor.
This tea goes with everything!!
I just spent a couple hours organizing my teas and putting a bunch on new ones in tins.
It’s beautiful and exciting, but now I’m exhausted.
I literally have my feet up :)
this tea was actually not very delicious.
sorry bummer town.
i think i need to just give up and keep my caffeine free tea simple. as in ginger and lemon and mint teas only. the basics.
they are what i drink.
i really disliked this one. smells nice, but has a very strange aftertaste.
another great ATR tea-
okay i’ve only had 3 American Tea Room teas total. and i know it’s still early in our relationship, but…
Do they ever get any of their teas wrong?!
my sister summarized by saying “their flavors are bold and clear and don’t ever taste fake”.
it’s…that’s ….that’s it.
it just is.
my American Tea Room order arrived whooo, and dudes, this tea is kinda mind blowing. it’s waggling it’s eyebrows at me. idek.
i have SO MANY samples to try.
it’s nuttiness is really something to behold. fig spread on sesame crackers.
i can’t wait to try all the samples. what else is new.
I love this so much, but it’s so expensive. It doesn’t seem to keep as well as my other ATR teas too :( Not as creamy now. Great to make butter tea with.
Creamy, buttery sweet. I don’t even like floral teas much, but this was nice.
I love making butter tea with this—tastes like an andes mint or choco mint ice cream :) I’m also impressed with the chocolate undertones (a little added sweetness really brings it out).
This was tucked away in my cupboard, and I had to search for it, knowing it would be sipdown with just a sample size to tide me over.
Opening the package is quite a treat. Creamy, sweet lemon wafted up to greet me. I want to take a bite out of this smell, it’s so delicious!
Drinking this is similar to what I imagine drinking a buttery lemon pudding would be: tart and sweet, full and thick, with a lot of buttery flake somewhere in there to boot. I wish there was more cream, and I’m missing the other elements the description raves about (caramel, orange, etc.) It is very delicious though, I just think I prefer Tealish’s Lemon Meringue more – and only because of the creaminess in the other blend.
Another sample from the awesome BrewTEAlly Sweet!
Ehh, it’s not bad. I like the coconut flavor but honestly it is a little on the weak side. Glad I got to try it :)
OK, moving on…. Went digging into my sample basket, and pulled out another crowd favorite – this time courtesy of ifjuly.
Dry this smells awesome, steeping this smells awesome, in the cup this smells awesome – I didn’t wait long enough. Burned the tongue….oh well – it’s worth it. This is cinnamon buns in a cup. Cinnamon, sweet and I think this is the first time that I’ve REALLY tasted the “bread” component. This is cinnamon bun. Fantastic. My only minor complaint is that it’s a bit thin on the tongue. Wish it had just a bit more mouth feel.
This I understand why everyone loves it. Thanks ifjul for sharing this wonderful tea.
