92 Tasting Notes
Depeche Mode’s song “I Just Can’t Get Enough” sufficiently sums up how I feel about this tea. I just can’t get enough and always say I’m just going to have “one more cup”.
Seriously dying to compare this to Barry’s, though, since I hear that is the tea of choice in Ireland. Just can’t decide which one I should get- the Barry’s “Gold” or the “Original” that comes in the green box. Then I’ll let Twining’s and Barry’s duke it out for my morning start :)
Got another one of these tea bags in a sample from a gift my sister sent me. Tastes richer than I remember. I’m currently waiting on an order I placed with Mighty Leaf that has a green tea assortment box. Can’t wait to try other types. Apparently my order is slowly crawling across the country from California to South Carolina. S-L-O-W UPS Ground service! Ugh!
Upon another try this morning and then checking out my previous review, I can’t help but laugh. Was I truly saying I preferred Bigelow’s English Breakfast to this? A whole leaf tea bag compared to a measly tea bag which is fine in it’s own right but certainly not in the same category? Hahaha. I have to laugh at myself. :)
This tasted really good this morning. Getting ready to have a second steep- love that about Mighty Leaf.
1st cup this morning finishing up sample tin. Not bad, but I’m currently enjoying my second cup from a whole leaf tea bag which is clearly superior.
The more I choose tea over coffee in the morning, the more I realize that I must invest in an electric kettle. It’s torture to wait the 3 and a half minutes it takes my microwave to boil water, especially when I’m desperately in need of a wake up. The coffee pot’s instant caffeine is tempting this morning (hubby still requires coffee), but I waited b/c I gave in yesterday to the convenience of coffee and it just tasted horrible. Starting back to work in a little over a week and really need to figure out a way to speed up this process. Besides getting up earlier, any suggestions? Any recommendations on reasonable tea kettles here in the US?
Trying to use this up from my sample tin. Twinings still wins and I will pick that up when I’m done with this. Still, a good pick me up for mid afternoon. Just kind of blah. I could pick up on the lingo and say this needs more cow bell, LOL. Every time I read that I can’t help but think of the skit on SNL with Will Ferrell. I’m assuming this is where the term came from? Could be wrong!
Sweet Orange Dulce back in my life after an extended absence, or so it seemed to me. Drinking out of my new Mighty Leaf Tea Top Brew Mug- sleek, convenient, and currently keeping my beloved tea so hot that I can barely drink it! This is just as good as I remember it and even better now that I have my little brew mug that is oh so handy :)
