2582 Tasting Notes
Sipdown though I never logged the sample so my number isn’t dropping.
On the plus side, I am getting a bit of my taste back and this morning I was able to fall asleep again without the assistance of medicine so it is safe to say that I am probably on the mend.
Consequently, I decided to use my free time to clean up my room a bit. I basically got through only one cupboard but filled a bag of clothes/shoes/purses to donate and another of garbage (such as my many pairs of converse that I wore right through the soles). Along the route, I found a bag from my European exploring and inside were some teabags I bought when I was in England so that was a fun find. This tea kept me company while I cleaned.
I bought this when it was the tea of the month and tbh I think I convinced myself I liked it more than I did because I liked the packaging. Anyways, I have had it a couple times since buying it and since have put off drinking it. Consequently, it got put on my sick teas line-up of things I wouldn’t mind “wasting” since I can’t actually taste the tea well.
With that said, I am getting some flavor. The sweetness from the cinnamon is being brought out by the honey and there are fleeting wisps of berry. Not great but also not caffeinated so a good choice for staying hydrated.
On a side note, my mom started cooking while I was brewing this and between the raw meat and the tea and the sickness, I got a whiff of wet dog from this which made me nauseous. I haven’t gotten it since but I must be really loopy because I have no clue what would give off that scent.
It’s weird that on one of the few Spring-like days we have had this year (I even got to drive with the roof down – YAY!) I ended up picking a tea called Winter. I looked for something fruity and this caught my eye, probably because of the white base which is lighter. Today the cream notes are really standing out while the lemon is almost completely muted. Still, its sweet and comforting and just a cup of happy.
Made the Creme brulee tea and as it steeped, something in the scent made me crave this one. So I brewed this up too. Not much new to say so instead I will tell you if my new project.
I recently started a diet to lose the weight I put back on in the past couple of years. As I experience new recipes that I have enjoyed, I have kept them which lead to an ugly stack of recipe printouts…until today. I went to indigo and got a cute recipe tin (https://riflepaperco.com/polka-dot-kitchen-recipe-box/) with some fun recipe cards (https://m.indigo.ca/product/gifts/recipe-cards-kraft-set-of/826635144717?ref=by-shop%3agifts%3arecipeaccessories-cardsrefills%3arecipe-accessories-cards-refills%3a2%3a) and now I’m compiling all the recipes. Not the most exciting thing in the world but when your tools are new and lovely than it makes the experience that much better. Plus, anything is better than studying for my 6 exams :P
Sad Sipdown (97)
Thank you Roswell Strange for sending me this delightful tea. It’s a consistent cup of Creme brulee deliciousness. Never has the base been noticed which means the flavors are free to take center stage. Even hanging out in a tiny ziploc bag for like a year, this has remained the same as it was the first day I had it. Amazing and definitely one I am sad to see go.
EDIT: This isnt on their website anymore. Does that mean it is gone forever?
Finished the last of this iced which has boosted the white chocolate element of this tea. Unlike last time, I am not getting the base so much but unfortunately I am not getting much raspberry either with this brew method. However, with the stronger white chocolate flavor, “cream pie” is certainly an easy connection to make.
Ultimately, I have enjoyed this enough while it last but I doubt I will seek it out again.
