someone here decided to make me a cup of tea since I seemed down. Not down so much as perplexed as every few minutes everything for my schedule changes and then I am supposed to run in a different direct. I always seem to be behind too (as in oh you are going to AK in sept not next year, why don’t’ you have everything lined up. I need a presentation for Thursday, oh no how about in 2 weeks and no presentation). So this tea stopped me, hey this is a decent green its got hints of jasmine but I wouldn’t have said “jasmine” if I hadn’t checked to see where it came from. More of a floral sweet green not very deep in flavor but a nice sipping drink that pulled me right out of the artificial race.
Flavors: Floral, Sweet
This is actual a travel staple for me. The strong vanilla and cinnamon notes tame bad water taste on the road. So for vanilla tea week I broke out a box with the happy lemur looking at me while drinking his tea I just had to cheer up. Its foggy out and I can feel the warm cinnamon opening my eyes and lifting the fog. The black on this tea is a bit harsh something I like in a wake up morning tea. The vanilla is strong in the scent and mixes on the tongue with the cinnamon. Adding some honey enhances the vanilla sweetness. I think its great for a bagged tea and for the price! Also you can’t really over steep, I’ve accidentally left it over 10 minutes with no additional bitterness.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Vanilla
Work buddy brought me a snack bag of this to try—it’s just lovely! Light and leans heavy to the sweet coconut cream side. First cuppa was so sweet I added just a pinch of fresh leaf and am attempting a second steep, chilled. Will be tasty for a feet-up after VBS Day 1. I have two phenomenal teenage helpers—one of whom showed up in fedora and trench coat and cheerfully provided secret agent code names for my little pod of nine-year-olds. Henceforth, you may refer to me as Captain Bigelow.
