926 Tasting Notes
No milk in the house to let me carry on my milky bedtime tea kick, so tonight I went for the next best thing.
ETA: HAHAHA I just saw my last note for this tea “about a year ago” mentioned my goal of a Whispering Pines order once I got my cupboard under 25 teas left. I’m… still striving for that goal… :"|
Some of my friends lost their cool over this limited edition blend so I snapped a box up for myself, and I’ve only just gotten around to unboxing (high five for a great selection of flavoured blacks open in time for cooler months!).
First mug with a splash of milk and I’m… underwhelmed. Or just… whelmed, I guess. I’m cold brewing some overnight and I’ll see if maybe plain (as recommended but I had milk to use up, ok) does it any more justice.
Time to get through the last stocks of this blend, as much as I love it! I don’t think it ever got added to the permanent collection, which is sad. I polished off a full cold brew 2L jug in one day today so in goes another one overnight, and I polished off a regular old hot mug for dessert tonight too. Somebody stop me.
This blend was released with Shimmer Punch as a limited edition for Christmas 2013. Shimmer Punch was the hands-down winner there but Twinkle Berry is still a beautiful iced/ cold brew option. I’m not 100% sure why I added it to my cupboard back then though, as it clearly hasn’t had a lot of pull with me… I panicked about the expiration just recently and cracked it open ASAP. Summer’s over as of today! Let’s hope the warm weather stays around a little longer (this may be the first time in my life I’ve ever wished this) as I’ve gotta get through this right away. Jugs ahoy!
