680 Tasting Notes
Only a couple of cups of this guy left and I’ve enjoyed every one of them!
I had my third or fourth last cup tonight as I shuffled the tea pantry around a little, made some room, got a couple more T2 boxes into canisters, etc. Found yet another instance where a past guest (who knows which one) opened up a new/sealed box rather than choose from literally more than thirty already opened and canistered teas. I don’t fucken understand some people, for fucksake.
Never mind. It still smelled pretty fresh so now it’s airtight and in a canister. Sigh.
Only eight T2 boxes still sealed now. Oh wait and the limited editions still sealed… so… six more. Fourteen. Ugh, I disgust myself. But at least I’m being strict with myself and throwing out teas I just don’t care for (I put a bunch up on the swap thread but if they have no takers in a couple of days then they’re in for the same fate).
I’ve got some sample packs on their way to me from another new little Aussie company called High Tea with Harriet, so I’m looking forward to trying those, and then I’m going to buy a bunch of samples from Kettle Town too (I know there’s one coming up in a Monstrositea subscription soon so I’m holding out to see which one first). Very excited about supporting little Aussie companies and getting away from big bad T2. Baby steps getting bigger. Maybe.
Wow, T2—good job here.
This was a sample sneak peek I got to try of T2’s September limited edition teas with a “study” theme.
I saw the licorice root on the label as one of only five ingredients and felt a little anxious, but I went for it anyway and opened the sachet. CHEWING GUM! The spearmint scent is overpowering. The other three ingredients (apple pieces, basil and green tea) come into play more in the tea once it’s brewed and the end result is really refreshing and invigorating.
Darn you, T2. Quit pulling me back in.
