I brought this one with me when I went out today. It’s delicious (as always), but it loses something in the travel mug. I’m really preferring my 12 oz ceramic mug from sbux, even though it doesn’t seal at all. Too bad I haven’t found a ceramic travel mug with no silicone bits I have to touch, and a (mostly) sealing lid!

In other news, I made delicious delicious fries today for dinner. I used avocado oil (takes higher temps than olive oil), and made a dipping sauce with tahini, garlic, lime juice, S&P. So good. Do it. Please. I’m going to try with ghee at some point. :)

That sounds delish!

The fries were SO GOOD, but now I’m SO FULL. Food coma time. Maybe I should have some puerh. :)

Courtney

Food comas are exactly when I have the pine tree tea from Verdant hah!

Fjellrev

They sound awesome!

If you ever did find a ceramic to-go mug that doesn’t have any silicone… let me know? I don’t mind silicone, but my husband HATES it. I got him a Cosco brand one that’s metal and plastic, but he said the metal gives it a funny taste. So… I’m still looking.

OMGsrsly

Check Starbucks. Occasionally they have them, with hard plastic lids. The lids just don’t close. I do like mine a lot, but I’d like to be able to put it in my bag so I can have hands free when I’m standing on the bus!

I had to skip a few teas in my cupboard chronology that were herbals and/or at home, so that brings us to this sample from OMGsrsly. I looked at my past note and bumped by tea amount to 1.5tsp for 12oz fo water today.

I definitely like this ratio better (who would have thought I would like it stronger?). There’s no bitterness to this so I could possibly even go to my normal ratio (2tsp per 12oz); maybe I’ll try it next time. But in any case this is a pretty tasty cup of tea. I think it’s the (unknown) base tea that makes this tea so unique. It tastes like bergamot and vanilla, but it also has some interesting other elements. I think the bergamot and vanilla are a little more subtle in this cup than the last one… the extra leaf is bringing the base out. It’s not a highly flavored tea. The base has a maltiness, and something else I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s a good blend, and definitely a nice change up from a typical EGC.

:) I started my tea drinking with Silk Road, and was pretty shocked when I found out that most tea companies recommend 1 tsp per 6-8 oz, not 1 tsp per 16. :D

Having only gotten into fine loose leaf teas this year, I’ve avoided buying flavored teas while I’ve gotten acquainted, especially since I often share this with my aunt, and she prefers her tea unflavored. This tea was given me as a Christmas gift. It’s basically Earl Grey with vanilla. The Silk Road site says it’s a blend of Ceylon, Indian and China black teas with bergamot and vanilla. Maybe that’s why this tastes like dessert to me. A rich indulgence—I can really taste the vanilla and it really compliments this blend. I imagine this would partner well with milk, but I really don’t want to in any way hide the flavor. A real pleasure.

Another sample from OMGsrsly!

I followed her directions and used 1tsp for my very large mug, and I hadn’t read any reviews so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

I took a sip and noticed a mildly flavored tea on top of a slightly malty black base, but I couldn’t put my finger on the flavor, I found it really really faint.

After reading the description of the tea I can pick out a VERY weak bergamot undertone.
If this is supposed to taste like a cream of earl grey tea with the vanilla, I’m not getting it at all.

Maybe an extra tsp would have given me the flavor I was after. I did enjoy the malty base as a unique background to an EG.

I will try again later with a resteep of more tea and less water!

Thanks for the sample, OMGsrsly!

OMGsrsly

Aren’t those instructions weird? Yet that’s how I started with loose leaf tea. :) I’m pretty sure I gave you enough to do 1tsp per 1 cup of water as well.

whatshesaid

Yes, you did give me enough to do 1tsp per cup, so I’m going to try that next! :)
Thanks!!
