911 Tasting Notes
Tucked in bed with a cup of Snooze after venturing out to the T2 Tea Society Mother’s Day event tonight. I was wrong, we didn’t get a random box of T2 tea tonight—there’s a first time for everything! What we DID get was a whole medium tin full of a blend we got to come up with by ourselves, from a small selection of T2’s teas. Overwhelming pressure on a perfecteaonist like me. I’m going to have to add mine as a custom blend on steepster because hey, I’ve got a whole tin of it now…
Also bought one of this month’s limited edition teas because I couldn’t resist that lush box any longer.
Also took a bunch of teas along to swap with a friend and ended up getting more in return than I bargained for. Sipdowns coming up… eek!
But for now, Snooze and then snooze. And then in the morning… snooze.
Yup, finished off the 18g magnet tin today. Filled it up with some of the stock I got in the Tea With Benefits pack, phew. Still got another two tins full, I reckon. And glad this resteeps too!
Good tea for a rainy afternoon. Good. Yes.
My grand sipdown plans are being consistently thwarted of late. Today I got an email to say that More Tea’s tea bottles are back in stock so of course I had to order one a few of their teas I’d had on my wish list. And Stacy from Butiki got back to me with a quote for my first order. Yeek.
Yeah, the licorice root in this blend will always throw me off a little, but to be perfectly honest it’s not awful in here. It just adds a sweetness that feels a little chemical. Still, it’s a cosy sleepy tea to have in the rotation. I think there are others out there more suited to me so I wouldn’t restock this but I’ll happily drink the last of what I got in the organic sampler from DAVIDs.
Hahahaha I love tea companies who are just straight down the line with their blend names. HEER IZ WOT IZ IN DIS.
This is tea #1 from the April Monstrositea box, an Easter treat! Seeing as my weekend is a Tuesday/Wednesday this week I decided to be gratuitous and use my whole sample of this for “Saturday” breakfast.
It’s not much on its own (too bitter) but with a decent lashing of perfectly creamy milk it’s a real treat. No sugar needed for this creamy, chocolatey brew!
Welp, can’t have a sleepy blend without dat chamomile now, can we?
This one’s been in my physical cupboard since December (a Christmas gift from work) and yet somehow I missed it in the Great Steepster Cupboard Own-Up of 2014. I spotted it tonight when I was shuffling things around and decided to unbox it and bring it upstairs to join my bedside tea station.
Yes, I have a bedside tea station.
No, I don’t have a problem.
Anyway, yes. Here’s another tea in my cupboard, bloody bollocksy bum-bums. My sipdowns were going so well! AND I just got four new teas in my new Monstrositea box this morning and that means my Mr Earl box won’t be far behind and I’m going to a T2 Tea Society event tomorrow night where we always get goodies including a free box of tea LIFE IS SO HARD. ALL I WANT IS A NEAR-EMPTY CUPBOARD. WOE.
#firstworldproblems or WHAT
Anyway, goodnight teahearts
