808 Tasting Notes
You guys! This is amazing tea. It’s bagged. It’s at the grocery. It’s still totally awesome. I was going to a conference where I knew it’d be cold all the time, and I knew they’d have hot water in one of the main rooms I’d be in, so I picked up a few bagged teas to take with me. This was an excellent choice. I think it’d probably be even better with sugar and milk. Decadent indeed.
I’m kinda here you guys! Just not posting with the frequency with which I once did. I did manage to make a cup of this (with pictures!!) this morning, and it was pretty good. I typically don’t love Moraccan Mint teas, but this one was actually quite good for me. I added a bit of sugar in the raw, and the balance of tea and mint was good.
The 75 this gets? It turns out my rating system isn’t perfect for me. 100 is the perfect cuppa- the ones that will always be in my tea cupboard. It’s the “best in class” rating for each type of tea. It fails me because I’m not always going to have Moraccan Mint in my my cupboard, but if I did, it would be Golden Moon’s.
I’m still getting used to the idea that I can have caffeinated tea as often as I’d like at work, so it’s taking a while to get back into the routine of making a cup. For now, the bags have it: making it easy to make multiple cups in the course of a day. I’m looking forward to when the bags won’t cut it anymore and I’ll be inspired to move back into loose leaf. :)
