backlog from yesterday…going to be a long weekend. I’m up “early” and i’ll basically be up now until whenever i go to bed on sunday night since i’m not sure if i’ll get a nap in there. Gotta love migration weekends + catching up on work. at least i might get the chance to get some tea drinking in tonight! i remember pausing at some point yesterday to really focus on this tea and i can’t recall if i thought there was a note in here that i really liked or what. that’s how busy my days have been. but i did enjoy it, and thankfully i have more from omgsrsly to play with heh

So strong. So good. If you like kick-in-the-pants teas, or have a fondness for CTCs, then find this and try it. This version is barely bitter, with a touch of that cardboardy assam-isness. Takes milk SO well. I would call this a comforting, easy tea… although you do have to be aware of the short steep time. Steeping in paper would add a papery taste reminiscent of bagged tea, although the tea flavour is so much nicer.

There are a few places that stock this tea, and I have a feeling it’s all from the same Grandpa. :)

So good. Rich and malty. Possibly astringent or bitter, but this is totally a tea for cream. So that’s how I’m having it. And it’s delicious. I could see this tea being a morning staple.

Just a note: I’m consuming this tea while eating some seriously sub-par bacon flavoured potato chips. Mackie’s of Scotland also has Haggis flavour, and I’m sooooo glad I didn’t get that one. The chip texture is also kinda meh. They’re not properly crunchy, rather they’re hard. Would I try another variety? Yes, but not the Haggis.

I got some Maple Bacon kettle chips yesterday and they are quite tasty! :)


I did not even know bacon flavored chips were a thing. How did I not know. I think I need to try some…


Sour cream and bacon ripple chips were a standard when I was growing up. Maybe it was a Canadian thing! But those ones had REAL bacon bits in the seasoning, which I think made all the difference.


MMMMmmmmmmm – Ruffles sour cream and bacon chips!!!! Not quite as good as Old Dutch kethup – but almost. :))
