Uhh, JustJames, I think I have a problem.
Thanks for that. It required some negotiating to find this tea in the cupboard.
I actually really like this smokey tea. I didn’t think I would, until Sil suggested maple syrup, and then I ended up with Too Much whipping cream. Maple whipping cream + Russian Caravan tea = match made in heaven.
This tea probably isn’t the best quality out there, but I’m enjoying it and that’s what counts. Right? It will definitely be a void in my cupboard when it’s done, but what to fill it with…
Sadly I’m all out of this – a sample box I got at Murchie’s in Victoria over the summer. Tea was one of the highlights of my trip! I doubt I will order more since shipping is $10 to the States. Nice with a touch of soymilk but doesn’t need sugar, IMO. Highly enjoyable morning tea.
Afternoon tea latte after a crazy long day or trying to take mom shopping atthe outlets. Found a crazy good deal on a suit for her, which she needs and isn’t a fussy duddy suit. Exhausting, but a good day to do it as it was a bit cloudy. Overall just having a great time out here. This morning we got to watch the pelicans pass over the water as well as the herons. So good.
This is so perfect today with a dash if milk and sugar. So warm and comforting! I thought I had a lifetime supply of this, but it might not last the winter.
I’m having such an awesome weekend too. Today we are relaxing by reading and computer games. We’re totally dystopian with Prison Architect and Papers Please on the computer, while I read some angsty fic.
Tea of the morning here, I had a fabulous weekend with my Sweetie but now it’s back to real life…
This is a really great blend of black teas esp. for a teabag! I accidentally oversteeped it but it still seems good to me. It reminds me of my lovely vacation in Victoria B.C. Hopefully I will go back there someday. See previous notes for more details.
This shines with the promise of strawberries and lemon, but once steeped it kind of loses its appeal.
I definitely prefer it cold steeped or flash chilled over hot, but it’s a little chilly right now and I don’t want cold. I want hot lemon strawberry goodness.
Still, it’s decent. I think as a hot “iced tea” herbal I prefer Baywater’s Cranberry Orange Chili Pepper. It’s more versatile. And so good with cranberry honey.
Cool, here is another sip down. I went through this faster than expected, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I think I was just subconsciously trying to get it out of the way.
The last cup accidentally got soy milk. I meant to use half-and-half, but grabbed the soy without thinking since I just used it for a peanut butter banana porridge recipe I tried out (it was so delicious) and it was already on the counter.
Eh, not great with the soy but yay for one more down.
Yeah, I’m done with this one. The idea is great, but I’m sipping the tea and meh. I had no choice but to add cream and sugar, to try and smooth out the flavours. This way it’s drinkable, but still not that great. And it’s becoming more bitter and cloying as it cools.
I don’t need “meh” teas in my cupboard in large quantities, especially when they’re using up a precious tin. So, goodbye tea. Hope you enjoy your new life in the compost bin.
Made myself a latte with this one as a break from the straight tea i’ve been drinking today. This is a fairly average vanilla tea – not too strong and not too bad. I think? i bought it to try something after visiting the store but now i can’t recall lol oh well! it’ll do in a pinch when i want to use tea bags for things.
I can see how this tea would go well with mint and sugar. So tasty. Yes, it’s a green tea I like! A little toasted, a little savoury (but nothing like Silk Road’s Melon Seed…), lots of depth.
Now I’m super excited to try the other Gunpowder teas I got in the swap!
(This will probably resteep well, too, since the leaves didn’t even manage to fully unfurl. Yay!)
