970 Tasting Notes
Another favorite for when I’m sick…although all of the sick-remedy teas seem to have the same ingredients, just a few new twists. But it keeps me from getting bored of tea when sick, so shrug
Anyway, this is one my wife and I both enjoy, and it certainly does soothe my throat, which is very good in my book. I had this yesterday and might have to make another pot today!
So over Thanksgiving, my sister in law got sick with a wimp of a cold. Nothing that bad, really, just some sneezing and sleepiness. Well, then my MiL and FiL got it. My MiL visited my wife on Thursday and by Saturday, she was stuck in bed with a doozy of a cold. Sunday I woke up to a sore throat and wheezing in my chest whenever I lay down (and no OHIP until November 14th). So…thanks, SiL.
Yesterday I made cup of this to go for my wife, and then resteeped the leaves in a tea-for-one for myself. It did not resteep well, sadly. Still, it helps both of us enough that I’m planning to buy a tin on the next paycheck. It’s going to be a long winter.
So when hearing about Davids $1 straight tea promo, my immediate thought was of this tea. I love this tea, but oh god the price >.s creamy and butter and just….guh. Drinking it reminds me why I love tea so very much.
Took this in to work to prepare for my first teaching session, where I taught someone how to put in and take out contacts. Woo! She did better than I did >.>.
Anyhoo, yes. This tea was definitely worth missing my bus for, and very much helped me wake up before helping someone muck about in their eye!
I headed into work yesterday with two mugs of tea again. I was craving Candy Cane Lane, but forced myself to drink a different herbal…and I’m glad I did.
This has always been one of my favorites, for as long as I can remember. Every Christmas season I buy a box or two and savor it until it comes back around. I don’t know why I’m suddenly in the mood for Christmas teas, but here I am! This definitely disappeared far too quickly last night at work.
I should just invest in a thermos.
I wish I knew what was in this.
I also wish I had let it steep a touch longer.
It’s a bit weak, but that’s my fault. It is also amazingly delicious and very raspberry-like. I’m very impressed, Red Leaf Teas! Bravo.
Drinking this chilled with a bit of sugar.
Dear Candy Cane Lane,
Let’s not beat around the bush. I know we’ve just met and all, but I think you’re really something special.
I’m just going to say it. I love you. I love your creaminess and the blast of cool mint. That little hint of cinnamon? Oh, I think I love that most of all.
I know you’re bagged, and I know people will judge us for being together, but I don’t care. We can make it work.
I guess what I’m trying to say is…would you move in with me? Permanently?
A friend of mine included a sample of this in a bag of goodies she gave me when we met (thanks Indigobloom!) and I couldn’t wait to try it. However, every time I remembered about it, it was nighttime. Booo.
Well, I remembered it today and looked forward to finally trying it.
So sad. So disappointing. So Teaopia. I taste mate, but very little peach. In fact, I don’t really taste any at all. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I enjoy mate, but not when I’m looking for peach flavor. It’s waking me up a bit, but I’m glad this isn’t one I purchased, because otherwise I would have been stuck with 50g of it. And this is one I’d be likely to reach for.
Thank you for giving me a chance to try this, Indigobloom!
