305 Tasting Notes
I received a bag of this today with my first Monstrositea box… it wasn’t one of the tea samples, but it was a sample in an earlier box I missed out on (I only signed up in time for box #3 onward) and it just sounded so GOOD I had to have it.
I was worried that I’d overhyped it, but I diligently stuck to steeping rules and it’s come out absolutely lovely. Delicate and strangely almost savoury but still sweet and a little like delicious hay. This is a beautiful brew.
Oh dear, I received both my tea subscriptions in the post this morning (hooray!) and it’s pushed me over the 100 teas mark. Sipdowns in my near future!
This was the first one I threw in, from my Monstrositea box. Lovely and sweet, quite nice on its own but really shines with a drop of milk in there. Sweet and… dare I say it… scrumptious.
Decided to crack this one out of my pack of organic DAVIDsTEA samplers because my throat is a little tickly today. However, the amount of licorice root in here makes me want to die. Damn. Somebody take this off my hands, I can’t deal with it.
Another Friday, another wonderful parcel full of tea samples, this time from Scheherazade! So exciting.
I had to pop this one open for an evening cup. Yum. This is just what I was hoping it would be. I kept a little smidge of sugar on the side in case I felt like I was going to need it, though after tasting the tea it was just fine for me as it was. I threw a bit of sugar in toward the end just to see how much it may have changed things, and it really did pop the drink from being a cup of Turkish delight – inspired herbal tea to being a liquid block of pink jelly. Got it.
I’m going to see if I can sneak a bit of T2 Cocoa Loco into my next sample of Enchanted Narnia and really draw that chocolate flavour out, too. Drive myself a bit crazy. Ok, time for bed. Delicious bed.
Thanks again Sarah! Super keen to work my way through all these awesome teas.
