791 Tasting Notes
Inspired by the iced tea chatter over here, I made a liter of this and chilled it. It’s pretty good. It actually reminds me of iced Constant Comment… which I think is mostly due to the cloves. I’m certain I wouldn’t want this to be a summer staple, but it’s nice tea to drink iced.
I had this again, this morning. It’s such a good drink, though so unlike a real tea. I hadn’t really thought about making it at home until I saw it listed here with a picture someone clearly took at their place…. now I’m thinking I need to get some to whip it up at home (and save a LOT on the total cost of the drink)!
Inspired by the “where is everyone” discussion post, I made a glass of this iced. It’s really good that way! I sweetened it, southern style, so it reminded me a bit of strawberry candy. I also had never really thought of making iced tea by the glass (we do it by the pitcher in my house), so I’m glad the post made me consider that. Now I’ll try a bunch of iced teas in the near future!!
I, too, got this one from the TTB. And I’m so glad I did! I don’t know much about McNulty, but I’m a fan of caramel, so I took a sample’s worth. It’s another tea that is more about the tea than the flavoring; just the way I like it! I had it with waffles for breakfast this morning, but I think it would have been even better on its own. I recommend it!
Another from the Travelling Tea Box! I think I prepared this one with water that was a bit too hot, but that’s okay. It was still what you’d expect from an oolong. I did a 30 second rinse and then a 3 minute steep.
It feels like summer out there, so I’m having a summer tea! The fruit in the background is just what I needed this morning, and the tea has the kick I was hoping for…. here’s hoping this tea set the day in motion in a good way!
