You make everything better. That is all.
I made a veggie smoothie! parsley, cucumber, frozen green beans, chlorella, oj, ice, and hemp seeds. Pretty darn tasty, I gotta say. Only issue is that now I am freezing and need a tea to warm up :)
So I’d never had buttered rum before. But last night… my neighbour made us buttered rum cake! and it was amaaaaaazing. Not at ALL like this tea. In fact, know that I know what it’s supposed to taste like, I need to lower the rating here.
Today I needed something special, and this was it. Went a little longer on the steep time and oh man it tastes just like maple pecan cookies. I’ll be mighty sad when my cup is done!
Thank you Nina’s Tea for this sample!! I’m quite enjoying this cup. The vanilla is very mild, and pairs excellently with the caramel. Light, like cloudbursts. The black base is nice as well, bringing everything together to make a very well rounded tea. No sugar or milk added.
Oh!! When piping hot, I swear there was something fruity in there!
I definitely wouldn’t mind having this in my cupboard.
Second cup out of this sample, and again I could not finish my cup. Is it just me? this tasted nothing like mango, but more like… sour juice? the black base didn’t even make an appearance, except for some strange astringent note that mixed badly with the oddly sweet/sour part that I think was the mango.
I forgot I still had this in my cupboard. and that I do enjoy lemongrass! on it’s own that is. In blends? can’t stand it. Solo? deeeelish! creamy lemon gooodness. It’s even complex, which I adore about teas.
I think I prefer this without milk??! an assam without milk, it just feels so wrong!
It’s crisp and fresh, floral and just a little malty. With all those letters attached, it’s no wonder why :)
A la dairy, it’s a little smoky, and I’m not sure I like that.
The kind gent from Capital Teas gifted this to me and I plan to cherish every spoonful. Though I need to indulge a few more cups before deciding on a rating.
Whaaaaaat, I still have some of this left over?! I thought it was sipped down ages ago. So I made a cup for Dad and I. Not bad, after all this time! Helps that I actually had it in a tin. Significantly less orange flavour, but the chocolate is still there, yay! :)
I needed the pick me up. I’m a little depressed tonight because I can’t make it out to my floor hockey game due to a professional committment, and I’ve been looking forward to it since last Tues. Le sad :(
Much better with a longer steep, as recommended on the packet! I’m so used to doing shorter steeps with my straight teas that I forget when indulging in one that does better with a longer infusion.
