2614 Tasting Notes

drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons
2614 tasting notes

After watching the horrible video out of Japan I needed comfort this am. This seemed to fit the bill as it was quick and effortless. I brewed this sachet in a big Starbucks mug (these sachets are made for 12oz. water). Added 2tsp sugar, a touch of vanilla honey, and a healthy splash of 2% milk. Served with oatmeal raisin cookies. Feel marginally better, but really need to turn the news off and focus on work.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec

drank Pomegranate White Tea by Honest Tea

Very refreshing, with a light pomegranate/berry flavor and just the right touch of sweetness. I would buy this again.

I cold brewed this pitcher way longer than planned (and also probably used too much leaf) so it turned out a golden color with a syrupy mouthfeel. I’ve been cutting it with cold water or ice when I pour a glass, which makes it just fine. It still tastes vaguely minty to me at times, but that’s ok – it feel fresh and crisp!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Breaking in my new Bodum 12oz. travel mug this am, wanted something to go with my Blueberry Vitatop muffin so I dug out this tea. Added vanilla honey (RoT) and milk, because it’s just not a breakfast black tea without milk & sweetener…

drank Irish Breakfast Tea by Twinings

Had an 8pm urge for Irish Breakfast + Bailey’s, so I went for the decaf. Will have to remember this next week for St. Patrick’s Day (and drink it earlier, full-caf!) The decaf definitely tastes “thinner” than the normal tea, but the richness (and booze) of the Bailey’s helps give it more heft.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

drank Pomegranate Honeybush by 52teas
2614 tasting notes

I finally opened this up and made a pot to share with my mother at lunch today. (It was her pick!) This was very refreshing, perfectly sweet without any additions, with a juicy pomegranate flavor and a hint of tartness on the finish. My first thought (as often happens with 52teas’ blends) was: “I bet this would be great iced!” I am currently christening my Bodum “Bistro” iced tea pitcher with a cold brew of Tropical Explosion (also 52teas) though, so it will have to wait.
