1453 Tasting Notes
Took a turn for the worse overnight, feel like death warmed over today. I love bravissimo, but I’ve had so much of it over the last few days that I couldn’t bear the thought of more, so I made a pot of this instead. Mmmmm, I adore this one, I’m glad we got a tin of it. It’s a bit more expensive, but it’s so light that 50 g of it filled our tin, so it works out for me.
Plucked this out of our suicide jar (a jar full of all of our leftover bagged teas, some good, some terrible. Whatever you snag, you have to brew and you have to drink). I didn’t have high hopes for this one, but it wasn’t terrible! I don’t know if I’d search it out, but it was very nice for a bagged tea! I might restock this one when the suicide jar runs out, and I look forward to making sun tea with this!
Thank you, brandy3392 for bringing this to my attention!
So my wonderful wife, who is as brilliant as she is creative, made me a tea-drinking game for my birthday! I roll two D10s, and drink whatever tea matches the two numbers. If I roll doubles, I get to use one of the ADORABLE cards she made to determine which tea to drink. Squee! Best wife ever, y’all.
So, my first official use of the game was this morning, and this is what I rolled. Mmmmm…this was a very good place to start. I love vanilla and this was just what the doctor ordered.
So…here it is. I ran out of Dayquil today and I was miserable. I made a cup of this and I really am feeling better…I can breathe and my throat isn’t hurting as much and I feel less like death.
That all being said, I had to treat this like medicine, I could not stand the taste. My tastebuds could be off or it could be the fact that I’ve got chicken soup, bravissimo, and this in front of me and I’m switching between the three, but I found very little pleasure in the taste.
But hey, if it makes me feel better, who cares? It just won’t be one I drink when I’m not sick. The rating is based solely on how it made me feel so much better, and has nothing to do with taste.
