So madly in love with this tea…
So happy to have a big tin of this in my life. I left the tea in the travel mug’s infuser for about an hour today, and found that by the end of the hour, the flavour had taken on a new dimension. I don’t know which component all of a sudden took over, but I don’t think I’ve had quite this flavour before. I also had a giant piece of orange in this mug, so that was fun.
I never really know what I’m tasting in here, but I imagine that the main flavours I’m picking up are beetroot, apple and carrot. My problem is that I don’t know how to identify beetroot or carrot in a tea! I almost get a hint of something spicy at the end of the sip, but I don’t know what that is. I think I should steep this according to directions sometime and see what the difference is. For now though, I just love having a tea I can toss in the travel mug and forget about for hours!
What’s that I spy? A cup of wellness on my desk? oh my! After yesterday mornings disaster with Ruby Red I opted to prepare my own tea (though the beau also refused to, so that sort of forced the issue. Luckily, this came out exactly as intended. Today, it is very sweet with a sort of vanilla cream flavour mingled in with the fruity and berry flavours. The lemongrass is always there in the background, playing with the other flavours, as well.
This mug tastes a little different today – I love the way this is slightly different every time, depending on how much of each component lands in my cup. I am getting something very creamy sweet, mainly with a hint of tartness (maybe the hibiscus). The main flavour has an almost vanilla tone to it, and is really nice and refreshing. Yum yum love love.
Finally having the big mug I was meant to have yesterday. This tea continues to be a favourite in large quantities, especially when I have to head out into the cold world in the morning.
Today I found myself wondering what it would taste like with some mint thrown in, so I might give that a shot sometime. Probably terrible, but I really wanted to give it a go. Another time!
In exciting news, the new travel mug is working out fine so far, though it is nearly identical so that’s to eb expected. Kept my receipt, so I can actually use the warranty this time if necessary.
A big mug got me through an extra sunday morning at work. Luckily, I finished the project in 2.5 hours. Now I plan on going nowhere today. Yay!
Mmm, no time for breakfast tea this morning, so the beau whipped me up some of this in my travel mug. It’s the sort that’s see through with a big infuser basket, so it’s best for herbals (so the tea doesn’t over-steep, obviously). This mug o’ Wellness has been steeping for nearly an hour now and it’s still delicious. Finally cool enough to drink, too. : ) I used far less leaf than I would have ordinarily because I wanted to save one more mugs worth out of my sample. I placed my order yesterday, but now I need to wait for it to get to Canada. It seems like my tea experience is constantly hurry up and wait lately, lol. Anyway, the decreased leaf quantity actually isn’t hurting the tea at all. I know it could be stronger, but with such a long infusion time it’s come out really flavourful and I find I am picking up different tastes than yesterday. There’s almost a hint of something spicy. Delicious!
Big mug of this to get to work today. I found that it had a very creamy sort of taste while hot, which thinned out a bit as it cooled. Almost like a dash of lime bang was thrown in my cup of Wellness. As much as I am enjoying this, I am so excited about other teas right now because…
My 52Teas order arrived!!! YAY!
Yummy nummy. Don’t know if it will help make me healthy, but it tasted great (since I could still taste this morning). Big travel mug kept me warm on my way to work. Perfect!
Excellent fruity sweet Sunday morning breakfast tea!
Travel mug of this for work this morning. It was really nice,a bit tart, but still had a hint of that creamy dimension I so enjoy. I’ve had this so many times that there’s not really anything new to say!
