1812 Tasting Notes
Drinking the last of this sample from Terri. Thanks, again, Terri. This was super tasty. And I followed the instructions to the letter, regarding the playing of opera in the background, while the tea is brewing.
Yesterday’s two cups were accompanied by “Faust” and “La Boheme,” respectively. Today’s cup is accompanied by “Le nozze di Figaro.”
Thanks to Terri HarpLady for this sample! I really enjoyed it.
An excerpt from my full review:
“The aromas of mixed Ceylon and Assam are touched by very gentle citrus. Truly, the smell of this infused tea does not remind me of Earl Grey in my experience. When I start sipping No. 55, the complexity of this not-Earl Grey surprises me. I say it is complex due to the different flavors, which I notice as separate but cohesive. It is at this point that I ‘lose myself’ in thoughts and tea. When my mind returns to the present, half of the mug of tea has been consumed – a sure sign of enjoyment.”
The full review will be available, later today, at CreateWriteDrink.com.
Years ago, I had a source for quite a few of the offerings from Lindsay’s Teas. That source eventually raised their prices beyond what was acceptable, and I found other places from which to get my tea fix.
Fast forward to now, living in a new area. A cafe that is on my way to work – but into which I had never stopped – finally presents an opportunity for me to visit. In that visit, I purchase this delightful blend and try another (Russian Caravan with Vanilla).
I am quite glad for the rediscovery.
Drinking the last of this blend and finally writing a review. Many thanks to my coworker, who brought this from his trip to Hawaii!
“…I must say that I am incredibly pleased that this tea does not taste entirely of fruit and vanilla.
“…the flavors themselves blend quite well! I get a lot of coconut and pineapple to accompany the taste of the black tea. Then, the vanilla smooths the other flavors and provides a pleasant aftertaste. "
