1468 Tasting Notes
When I found we would be coming to the States, I immediately placed an order on Amazon for a teapot I’d been eying that they wouldn’t ship to Canada. I also got a book for De, a cloth tea strainer, and a bag of this tea.
To break in my beautiful new tea for one set, I made a cuppa this. The cooler it got, the more pronounced the vanilla became. I liked it more as it cooled, it became richer and tastier. I need to try it again, though, before I rate.
Just over the US/Canadian Border into New York, we stopped to use the washroom at a Tops. On our way out of the store, we spotted these and had to try them. I got this one (tea and a penguin? I’m sold). It was tasty. I would have preferred some Long Life Oolong, and the oolong bit was a bit stronger than I like it. Still, I enjoyed the list of natural ingredients, the explanation of what oolong is, and the use of Fair Trade teas. If I still lived in Lockport, NY, this is a tea I can see myself enjoy often as something quick to go.
Yum yum yum. We are leaving in 15.5 hours (gah), so while we were running errands this morning, I stopped in for a cuppa this. It was delicious! I loved that they used real watermelon in the mix. The Oolong was a bit stronger than I care for, but all in all, this was way better than a coke and I feel better for having it.
