1351 Tasting Notes
Oh, matcha, I have missed you as well. It’s been ages since I last had matcha and so this morning I had to break into it. It was overwhelmingly MATCHA, so much so that I’m having trouble finding the flavor, but that due to my own palate being out of use. I mixed this with some french vanilla matcha and vanilla agave and it is lovely.
Oh there’s that matcha buzz. I am off to clean all the things!!
I have been craving this for WEEKS and when I couldn’t find it the other day, I nearly cried. But I found it! Oh Joy, my Orange Blossom is in my greedy little hands again! It’s so creamy and yummy and wonderful. I found brown sugar cubes at our new grocery store and they add a sweet depth to this tea that makes me wish I had bothered to wash my mason jar instead of settling for my favorite perfect mug. It’s been an awful day, but this little love has made it much better.

After spending my morning on Steepster and wandering over two or three Milk Oolong review, I knew just what tea I needed to make when I got around to it. I couldn’t find my DavidsTea Milk Oolong, but I knew exactly where this one was and I am not in any way disappointed. It’s so creamy and fresh and delicious…Milk Oolongs will always have a special place in my heart. And I even took a break from my mason jar mug gasp So yummy…I can’t seem to put it down.
This new mug is the love of my life. Seriously, I’ve not used anything else since I got it. As a Southern girl living in Toronto, this behemoth is a dream come true. And it’s huge! Which is awesome, but I would not recommend trying a new tea in this because if you don’t like it, you’ve still got 25 ounces t drink XD. The infuser is just as big, which is great, but a touch hard to clean. It’s heavy and stable and looks great in my collection. I recommend it to everyone and anyone.
I am an idiot. No, seriously. We sat down to a yummy pancake breakfast, and as I opened the butter, I could smell something rancid. I sniffed the butter and it turns out, yup, it was the butter. Fast forward to me getting distracted by yummy pancakes, slathering them with said butter.
Combine that with my lactose intolerance and I am Not Feeling Well. Luckily we found our tin of this little beaut and my sweet wife is keeping up a steady supply for me. It calms my tummy right down and I love the taste. Not to mention it makes my cat SUPER cuddly XD.
Oh, I love this tea. It’s all about the tried-and-true favorites for me today, it seems. Big glass of this baby and I’m loving every sip…especially now that it has cooled off. Our new condo is so freaking hot all the time that hot tea just wasn’t doing it for me. Seriously, it’s been way below freezing here in Toronto for weeks and we’ve had the heat off, the building is just that hot. So I’ve got some teas cold steeping and I let this tea cool down and it is glorious. All blueberries, all the time. Makes me want to make a blueberry pie!
Hello old friend, I have missed you. We’ve been moving to a new place and most of our teas were packed up about 3-4 months ago, so I’m glad to have them in my hot little hands again. I’ve been craving Orange Blossom for days, but the tin is in a box we haven’t found yet, so this is a lovely substitute. It is a touch weak, but I blame the massive mason jar mug and my impatience in steep time. Still, it’s like falling into the most delicious almond cookie. This will always be a favorite of mine.
