Ohkay. I’ve been impatiently waiting for this package all day. I’ve been hiding in my room because I was so tired after work – I won two contests and associate of the month, and that takes effort, especially for an introvert like me!
The people across the street are moving, so there have been big trucks going by all day. Each time I see one I check – is it UPS? No? Damn.
This time it was, and I raced downstairs to intercept the deliveryman before my mum or dad could… no need for them to know I’m buying more tea.
Smelled them all – they all smelled great. I honestly started with this one, even though the chai spice aroma was a bit overpowering and intimidating, because a friend of mine tried it and said she didn’t like it, and it was bitter. So this is me proving her wrong.
I immediately went for a macchiato with this. Why not a latte? Because for some reason “Mycroft Latte” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.
Steeped 2tsp/8oz, boiling water, 2 minutes. Added about 6oz milk and 3oz foam.
The first thing I taste is the cream, followed by the vanilla rooibos. I suppose there’s a hint of chocolate in there too. I don’t taste much chai, but that’s a-okay with me. (Leave the chai and spices for Moriarty.)
This is great, and I don’t regret owning a 3-oz bag of it at all. Probably not something I’d purchase again (so many teas, so little time!) but definitely not one I’m eager be rid of.
Edit: And because of all the foam on top, it sort of gives it that feeling of drinking whipped cream. No complaints here. I’m just going to sit here and rest my tired feet (no cushioning whatsoever in the shoes I wear to work, and yet they’re more comfortable than the ones with cushions. Go figure.) and listen to Underworld’s Olympic Ceremony opening song – it’s gorgeous. I love them.
