818 Tasting Notes
Right, there goes the last of the 2013/original blend CS I’ve been hoarding. I’m going to miss it SO much because evidently the 2014 blend is seriously wrong. But the 2013 blend is perfect. Damnit. Seriously, my ratings are like a 95 for the 2013 and a 25 for the 2014. What do you do? (More importantly, wtf did T2 do!?)
It’s mildly hilarious to me that friends peering into my tea cupboard lately have remarked on how low it seems, where Steepster is still here to tell me I’ve got well over fifty teas in there.
I’ve drunk at least a litre of this in the past week and I’m still not sleeping well, but the tea can’t be blamed.
Quite happy to get this one out of the cupboard. I opened it once the lemon myrtle was done and dusted, so I’d have another plain black handy, and gosh it’s a good one. Just a big strong cup that’s delicious with a dash of milk and just what’s needed at the start of some days.
I’m keen to try it with the original brewing method listed on the box, similar to a traditional masala chai it appears to be. Something to have a bit of fun with soon.
I hate it when a limited edition blend is really good.
I’ve been hoarding this in the cupboard since January but when I ran out of Gone Surfing it was time to bust this open and I’m reminded of exactly why I snatched it up when I could, because it’s great.
It’s sweet, much sweeter than Gone Surfing, but herbal sweet (NOT licorice root sweet) and still zippy and calming and I’m in love with it.
