drank Sansa Stark by Custom-Adagio Teas
1196 tasting notes

The funny thing about this tea’s description is that I have been knitting a blanket while watching Game of Thrones. I bought this because it sounded good out of all the Stark based custom blends, so I got it. It smells amazing, and I thought it’d be good iced.

I oddly feel like the pouch wasn’t entire filled though? It seems less full compared to a couple of my others that I’ve yet to open…It seems actually it’s heavier compared I guess. I used almost an ounce to make a pitcher of tea…jeez. Kind of an expensive iced tea.

So the strawberry tea in here is the strongest ingredient because the tea is bright red.

It’s really good though, I really can’t taste black tea at all until the very end, but the vanilla cream is there. The hibiscus isn’t terrible, it tastes more like strawberries.

I’m just sad it takes so much to make iced tea :( Next time I’ll be less impatient about it..

Am I allowed to smirk at the knitting comment? :) lol. I thought it was a dying hobby

haha well in high school it was a huge deal to knit because the cool chemistry teacher (a guy!) knit. He even led a knitting club. I really stopped knitting much after high school but my mom asked me to knit a blanket for my grandma, who lives in a nursing home and is constantly cold despite the fact it’s not bad at all in there. I’ve been working on it for a year because I can’t stand doing it still but I know how much she’ll appreciate it so I’m trying to finally finish it up.

Then definitely it’s dead with me LOL

I just taught myself! I figure there’s enough geek related patterns out there that it would be worth it. I’m making a Tardis cover for my kindle right now, and after I want to knit something with the Stark wolf on it. If you go to ravelry.com. There’s a pretty active community – not just older people. :)

Course that doesn’t mean it isn’t dying.

ooh I should do that too if I have yarn sitting around for it.

I mean maybe it’s just fine but where I am there’s such a lack of even your general sort of craft store. I think the only craft store even in my city of almost 100k is a fabric store, although maybe this really sad Michael’s is just on the border of being in the limits.

I just feel like everyone I knew who knit doesn’t anymore, and those generic type craft stores never have much yarn on sale. I used to work at A.C. Moore (pretty much only on the east coast) and they had such a glorious yarn area. They had your $2 acrylic but then you could get alpaca, super cool ribbony yarns, etc.

I just realized I live about a mile from a yarn shop I went to once trying to find a certain green. I may have to go back and look at it!

There were two cool shops where I used to live, one I even got to advertise in the yearbook but both are gone now :( That’s why I kind of figured it was dying in interest but of course it could have just been the economy there, since I have been assuming this shop went under too.

I used to crochet, & have thought about taking up knitting, but it will probably never happen. I already have too many things to do, I doubt I’d ever find time to knit. Still, on the rare occasion that I visit a craft store, I always end up in the yarn department. The last time I almost bought stuff.
