“This drink… I like it!”
“I know, it’s great right?”
ANOTHER!”

“It was delicious! I want another!”
“You could have just said so!”
“I just did!”

against my better judgement i just brewed 24oz of this.
i think i will avoid ppl for the next few hours so i can sidestep the possibility of literally tackling someone with enthusiasm.
so much mate. so so very much mate.

I imagine that you would likely tackle people with or without caffeine. .don’t know where I get this image of you from ;)

Kittenna

Hahahahaha, that ^^.

Shmiracles

ALL the EXCLAMATION points!!!!!
if only you knew me when…
when i used to do cartwheels in all the wrong places.
if alien gods were real, i would ask them nicely if they could take me back to my Amazon days.

Starfevre

Ah Thor, how I love you so.

I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one who read it in Thor and Darcy’s voices ahha

Shelley_Lorraine

yes, Schmiracles, it could be the exclamation points, or maybe the random use of ALL CAPS, or possible just your username, lol. It’s a good thing I am here to keep this forum balanced. I am the grumpy cat half of your excessive enthusiasm. and btw, if you read my note that referred to webkinz, and even if you didn’t, some of you may be interested to know that there will be a grumpy cat Webkinz plush released on valentines day (such an appropriate day, no?) haha.

Sami Kelsh

Heehee, that’s a dangerous amount of Thor, yo.

Cavocorax

Shelley – that’s pretty awesome. I love Grumpy Cat. Well, as much as Grumpy Cat allows.

And yesssss, where would we be without Shmiracles’ crazy enthusiasm!

I got a Breville tea maker with my money for Christmas! Good news about it is I’m making a lot more tea! Bad news is it’s very sad watching all my teas dwindle down, especially since I was used to only making one cups worth before. I still love it though.

ON TO THE TEA THOUGH! I recieved this as Christmas present and admittedly was VERY intimidated to crack into it since it is described as a strong flavored blend. I love black teas, but I usually add milk and sweetener to them. Keeping that in mind I was very aprehensive to just try this without any addatives.

After brewing it the tea smelled almost fruity, but nutty at the same time. Maybe fruity isn’t the correct way to describe it.. It smelled sweet in any case. This was reassuring for me, and taking my first sip did not disappoint at all. The apricot is pleasant, and like the smell, this tea has a natural sweetness about it that makes not not require to add anything at all!

To sum it up, I thought this was going to be an overpowering, strong, black tea but it was not the case at all, and I love it.

When I opened the bag, I took a deep inhale. It smelled delicious. Tea with cinnamon and other spices, light enough to be enjoyable, not strong enough to make me want to vomit. I eagerly brewed this. Two teaspoons was too much for a cup. This stuff (like Thor) is STRONG. I’ll cut back to one teaspoon next time.

Delicious stuff. The best thing I liked about this was that despite all the spices and flavors, it still tasted like tea. The other flavors are all undertones and weave delicately around the tea flavor – which remains predominant.

Thor’s a bit (uuhh ok, a lot) oversteeped which shows a bit in a tinge of bitterness… but he’s still super tasty.

(This is only my 2nd time having yerba mate – I like it much better this way, with black tea. The other was a citrusy thing that tasted like Tang. Bluhhhh.)

“I like it. ANOTHER” ran through my head as I finished up my cup of Cecil, and with those thoughts in my brain, how can I NOT choose Thor?

I had to. It’s friggin Thor and he will not be refused.

Does anyone else find that Avengers fic reads like it’s very fast paced and the narration would leave you breathless if you read it aloud? Just a thought.

So, this tea:
I was surprised that the rec steep temp was 185, but who am I to argue with Cara about her blend? I will do what I’m told. Except I over steeped this..

But it’s ok! It tastes like dark rich mate with peach notes! And apricot! The mate is so roasty and rich that it really reminds me of coffee, but I expect that’s from steeping it twice as long as requested.

Thank you Shmiracles! My avengers tea tasting is off to a fantastic start!

ETA: Finishing my cup. Still loving every sip.

I’m not sure i’m getting apricot from this one. it’s not as blechy a mate as mate usually is for me, but it’s not a great cup of tea. I feel like thor should be bold and strong….or something hahaha now i’ve lost my train of though. But thank you for sharing shmiracles!

From shmiracles!

Excitement is in the air because I’m seeing my friends from high school for the first time in MONTHS. AHH I AM SO EXCITED.
And with that, I accidentally brewed this for far too long and now it’s turned bitter :(
Doing whatever it takes to get a decent cuppa, but nothing’s working :/ Well, at least I have a couple cold brews in the fridge that I can drink during breakfast if I completely give up on Thor :)
