232 Tasting Notes
It’s okay hot, so long as you don’t SMELL it.
This tea will forever be bitter sweet for me. I can see the bottom of the tin as my 11 year relationship comes to an end and I just want to cry sad tears into this tea. It just is not a happy week. I hope that one day soon I will be able to consider this tea a happy after work tea again, just not right now.
That being said it is probably the most soothing latte I have had all day. Side note I am out of milk and I want to cry over that, and I am sure I will find a few more things to cry about before the night is out.
1 microwavable glass jar with a lid
4 0z of 1% milk
1 16oz mug
1.5 tsp Cream of Earl Grey
12oz of hot water
Pour milk into jar, place in microwave (in my micro) set timer to 1:20 minutes and hit start. Steep tea as usual. Take Jar out of microwave screw lid on tightly and shake. Pour over steeped tea including the froth and enjoy.
I will admit that Lucerne Milk (Safeway, Tom Thumb, ect) does not foam as nicely as I would like, but it still makes enough foam for a “Poor Mans London Fog”.
There is enough vanilla in this tea that I did not need to add anymore to it to get that London Fog quality you get at a coffee shop. I will admit that I thoroughly enjoy how sweet the milk gets when it is heated and shaken! Mmmmmm
A little “Monster-in-Law”
A little rain, and wind and changing leaves
A little pumpkin chai with cinnamon honey…
Mmm, it is a good Sunday! It’s gonna be a great fall.
This little 10g sample seemed to go too quickly – I can’t wait to get more!
But I think I will wait a bit. I need some room in my tea cupboard. It’s increadibly packed!
QuiltGuppy you really know what teas appease the pallet!
This one is incredible! A fabulous black tea that chases the chills away, and is delicious iced with a little agave! Mmm-Mmm Good!!
Not! Good iced!!
I will try this again, hot and see if I care for it anymore, but I am not holding my breath!
There is not a lot of this tea left. I wish DAVID’s offered tins that held just 50g, because this one is a once in a while dessert tea the large 100g tins makes this tea seem daunting. Does that make sense? I like this tea, but just in small, small doses…
Not for me, it smells better than it tastes, it’s very flat when a person associates sweet with caramel.
I mixed it with DAVIDs “Oh Canada” – it works at least I am not wasting the tea this way.
It is amazing, and sad how quickly one goes through a great tea! It is time to go and get more… Soon, quickly… TODAY!!
