918 Tasting Notes
With not a great deal of this precious nostalgia left, I tried tonight with some milk and sugar added to try to reach those really creamy notes. It felt super weird adding milk and sugar to a peppermint tea. I suppose it worked? Ooh that minty oil slick sure is something, and with milk in the mix it’s even more pronounced!
One more cup of this and I’ll be all sipped down :(
Note: does not resteep well :(
More fun note: just paid for my first Butiki order eeeeeee ALL THE BUTIKI let’s not discuss how much money I just spent, I am a responsible adult
Second steep of today’s leaves just as strong (?). Third steep I think there’s still some flavour in there but I’d really need some of the first and second steeps to compare, and I drank ’em all up already.
Definitely worth one resteep to get the most out of this blend as you can.
P.S. the burger was delicious.
I was expecting the taste of this tea to be a lot more threatening than it actually is, so that’s a boon. To me it’s got quite a bland taste but I suppose there is enough flavour in there from the lemon and rooibos that it has SOMETHING.
I can see how this would serve well as a tea for those in a detox mood! After my weird eating yesterday it’s bringing a mental comfort to me, I suppose. But I’m about to go put a burger on it SO………
Flavors: Lemon Zest, Wood
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.
