970 Tasting Notes
This tea truly lived up to the description for me. So yummy. I don’t know if it’s a placebo effect or if the St. John’s Wort is at work, but I can’t help smiling when I drink this tea. I stocked up on it today because it will soon be gone (so sad!) but oh, I plan on resteeping the heck out of these delicious leaves.
The only complaint I have is that it is so easy to oversteep this and it gets so bitter. My go-to time is 4 minutes, because I like the blacks and oolongs a bit weak and the greens and whites a bit strong, but 4 minutes is definitely too long. This isn’t one I can do without a timer, I always mess it up and then I am so sad!
Oh my God, this tea. I only got 10 grams to start…I didn’t think I’d like it. In fact, I was sure I wouldn’t like it, but since it’s so very popular, I figured I needed to at least give it a try. You see, I don’t like chocolate. It’s okay, but I don’t go crazy for it like most girls.
At first sip, I immediately regretted not buying more. It was a matter of days before I ran out and I was so very sad. It was love at first sip, the way everything worked together…so very yummy. I could see why it is everyone’s favourite. But for me, it satisfies my sweet tooth without being overly chocolatey.
My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Sunday to try and avoid the crowds a bit, but she braved the crowds of the local mall to take me to DavidsTea and buy one of their adorable love tins with 40 g of Read My Lips and four chocolates with Read My Lips-infused middles. Best Valentine’s Day gift ever!
