1351 Tasting Notes

Called my mom this morning to tell her about our latest adventures (dishwasher broke, pipe burst, and sick cat) and she was sitting down with some of the Buttered Rum I’d sent her. This inspired me to make a cup of my own, as I’m in dire need of a pick me up, and boy did this work! So creamy and rum-y and delicious.

This is my second time trying to resteep it and the second time it hasn’t worked. Sad. Am I missing something? Has anyone else successfully resteeped this? I love this tea so much, I want to make it last forever.

This was my last cup of caffeine before night fell.

I have to admit to blasphemy…I like this tea despite not like chocolate. I like this tea in spite of the chocolatey flavor. So before I brewed this tea, I…well, I pulled out all of the chocolate chips.

It wasn’t bad! It still managed to be chocolatey but not as strong. I look forward to having my vanilla black tea delivered so I can mix it with my beloved spearmint and float away.

But yes, read my lip – chocolate = yummy!

It’s brilliant!!! I might try that. (Taking the chocolate out).

After today’s awful tea experiments, I needed something I knew I loved, and this is what I reached for. Pure, simple, and amazing.

So, learning from the horror that was Painfully Strong Hibiscus Raspberry from this same company, I brewed this with only a teaspoon of tea, instead of a tablespoon. When I sniffed the finished product, I hate to say this, but my immediate thought was of a cheap motel room by the pool. Kinda musty and chlorine-y, but not….I don’t know, it wasn’t a bad thing, kinda?

After I take a sip, I realize the smell reminds me of a hotel coffee, that’s what I’m associating it with. Not terrible…but not all that great, either.

My wife’s going to try this when she gets home, but I think I can safely say that if there are any coffee cherry enthusiasts out there, I’d be happy to send you some of these teas.

Maybe milk would help…
Ugh these teas confuse the heck out of me.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
