1351 Tasting Notes
To try and put a positive spin on the sweltering heat yesterday, I decided to make sun tea with some of the bagged teas I’d set aside for just such a purpose. I’m not rating any of them, as they were a mix of two Stash decaf english breakfast, one bentley’s raspberry, and one bentley’s mango in a 2 L jug. It came out incredibly weak, which is likely my fault, I should have used more bags of this. But it did come out very, very bitter and I had to sugar it heavily to make it drinkable. Blegh. I’m a Lipton’s girl for sun tea, have been ever since I was a baby and my mother never allowed us to sugar our teas, so I was less than impressed with this tea.
I love this tea. I love this tea, I love this tea, I love this tea. Every time I have a cup, I fall in love all over again. This is one of my favorite cups of tea, it’s so very juicy and fruity…I didn’t even know what black currant tasted like before this!
I have to ask my steepster family: I can only find this online in 2 lb bags…is there anywhere I can buy this in smaller quantities? I don’t even want to run out!
And I’m back. Guh. I’ve been off tea and off my diet…isn’t it neat how those go hand in hand? Tea’s felt like too much trouble, and soda is so tasty and so much easier to drink… ugh.
Today I overindulged in some fudge, which my stomach angrily protested. I made a big cup of this with a spoon of spearmint and remembered why I fell in love with tea. My stomach is back to feeling groovy, but I think I’m going to go for another cup anyway.
