1011 Tasting Notes
It has been several days since I’ve able to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea. I’ve been so busy that every cup of tea has been on the go. Boston is tasting amazing today. I am really enjoying this cup with a bit of honey and half and half. Since this tea is better tonight than ever before, I’m upping the rating on this one.
After this morning I will be officially out of this delicious tea. Although this hasn’t been an everyday tea for me, or even a very often tea, when the mood hits, this tea is absolutely perfect. I’m not getting much of the white chocolate today, but I’m really enjoying the nutty flavor that is coming through.
This is a sad, sad day Steepsterites!! I am officially drinking the last of my Emperor’s Red this morning. I really do love this tea. I have been saving the last bit of leaves for awhile and they taste even better than I remember. I will definitely be restocking these sometime, but probably not in the next few weeks as I have a lot of tea right now to get through before buying more. Until then, I will be enjoying my tangy, roasty, cocoa love and enjoying each second of my multiple infusions.
Continuing on my St. Patrick’s Day tea celebration, I am now drinking a GREEN oolong! I haven’t had this in quite awhile and I am really enjoying the buttery, smooth caramel flavor of this tea. I know that the subsequent infusions of this tea are the best, so I’ll soon be trying out infusion #2.
I felt that it was only fitting to start St. Patrick’s Day with a big, super strong (steeped for 15 minutes….yea, I’m a bit crazy) mug of Irish Breakfast….not that I really needed an excuse to have this tea again today. As always, this tea is very pleasing with its malty, rich taste. The kick of caffeine isn’t too shabby either.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Steepsterites!!!
