150 Tasting Notes
I had this one to go as it’s one I’ve been meaning to try. While my hopes were at a medium-ish level for this I was still disappointed. It seemed rather weak to me. I really did not get a lot of chocolate, no heat, and just a muddy citrus flavor. The cup was drinkable in that “it’s freezing today so I really don’t care much as long as it is warm” kind of way.
However I had a great experience in store today which is always nice considering their reputation.
“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
That’s the line I’m at in the Fault in Our Stars. I’ve decided that it would be a public service if I did not go to the theatre to see the movie version. Not sure if the general population could endure my sobbing.
This tea though, it’s wrapping me up in a delicious hug. Vanilla Orchid is my favorite out of the vanilla oolongs I’ve tried so far. I haven’t tried very many mind you, but I’m still enjoying this one for now :)
I would really like to go on vacation, but I also just want to sit at home and do nothing but read and internet. So I guess I’ll just have this tea instead! I just finished having a “Hobbit” marathon, which I never should have started considering how late it is…. or is it early now? Either way I’ve been up for waaaaaay too long and I have to work today too D’:
Sometimes I seriously question my life choices.
I still haven’t seen Winter Soldier yet (shame on me) but I figured I would have a cup or five of the Steve Rogers blend in honor of the movie anyway. I really want to love this blend, I do, but it’s just not winning me over. Maybe there’s too much/not enough of something? I think there’s a bit too much ginger… or not enough apple? Anyway, I brewed this double strength with a touch of sugar like someone here suggested and it was better than previous brews. I was just too lazy to get up and grab honey. Shame, because I really think a bit o honey would help this tea out a lot!
Made this a sipdown today! It feels good to get through some of my stash, but bittersweet at the same time. I don’t know if I will re-order this one. It was fun and tasty while it lasted (and of course I love me some Destiel!) But I think my love for this one was more in the “summer fling” category.
