1767 Tasting Notes

l like the “hints of apple skin” in the product description … this is light, lip-licking tart, and dry. Not enough left in the cup to ice down, but I bet it’s good cold.

Smells wonderful; tastes…not as much. Unless you really like the tree-branch taste of ginseng. That’s hard to mask with any other flavoring.

Glad you reviewed this! I was wondering about it and nearly put it in my cart.

This one just gets better and better with its multiple personalities. Yeah, I’m getting cocoa, but I’m getting a little bit of crisp fruity. Now specifically digging it in the morning instead of blearily grabbing whatever I can find in the tea drawer.

I said recently I wonder how long it’ll be before I quit tensing up when the sky gets cloudy. Prayer answered: thunderstorms in area last night, and we slept through them. Very restorative physically and mentally.

The hot/humid/hazy that preceded the rain has lifted and the morning is clear and cool, so I’m taking a few minutes for myself before I go teach my church kids, and enjoying this gift from Doulton. Notes I’m reading refer to smoky, which I’m not getting much of, but it has a nice dark cocoa powder sweetness that, on an even cooler day, I can see myself having with half-and-half, maybe honey. Excellent.

Yesterday the wind blew very forcefully here just before a storm passed through – enough that hubby went out to batten down youngest daughter’s tent. I thought of you then, and hoped you wouldn’t have to deal with fears of wind and weather. I know it must be so hard…so glad you slept through it!

Despite my love of the good stuff, I have always kept a pack of grocery store brand bags on hand for the sun tea jar — days like today, COLD trumps flavor. Tagless variety also makes for a good sunburn or eye compress. Headed to the farm to power wash muddy household goods, so this may come in handy for both purposes.

You inspired me! I just threw some old Luzianne bags in a glass pitcher to cold brew. Don’t know if it will work as a cold brew, but we will know by this evening! My mother-in-law’s dentist gives you a teabag when he pulls a tooth. He says to dampen it and then bite on it to stop the bleeding and help the clot form. Tea!

Me too! I’m always too miserly to waste my good stuff on a jug of sun tea. All teas have their place.

I was disappointed to see that no Always Save teas have been reviewed here…
:) You may have started something gmathis!

Nice and delicate, and even when I didn’t take great care with it, didn’t go bitter. Even better was the encouraging note that came with it. (Thanks, ashmanra … encouraging words are keeping me propped up these days!)

Like it! Fresh bready aroma, nice and strong. Milk and sugar would be appropriate, but I needed it straight up this (yawn) morning.

Amazing what a decent night’s sleep will do to your taste buds.

I can actually TASTE. Interesting to read previous notes on this one; all are a little different. First thing that comes to my mind is “malty darjeeling.” Really good malty. Thinking this will be tasty iced a little later today.

SimplyJenW

I am thinking I need to try this one iced, too!

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
