Another tea finished off. I liked this one; it’s a good, solid breakfast tea. I’d buy it again, although I think I want to try out other Assam teas first to see how they compare.
It’s interesting to note that when I eat something sweet this tea, rather than tasting bitter in contrast, takes on a slightly sweet tone itself, almost like I’d added honey to it.
I added a bit more milk than I meant to to this cup so that all the milk could get used up. In another could of hours the boyfriend and I will be leaving for Vancouver to see the Games. My access from now until Sunday will be pretty limited so don’t break the place while I’m gone guys! ;)
Drinking this with milk and honey this morning, though all in all, I think I prefer it unsweetened.
I had a cup this morning – it was quite nice and toasty, a good tea for a snowy day like today.
Hopefully this will help me wake up and get me ready to face the day. :D
Sixteenth verse, same as the first. Go read my old tasting notes. ;)
I sent out a bunch of teas to people yesterday. $20 in postage – oy! So if anyone requested tea from me you should be getting it in the next couple weeks.
As for this tea, go read my older tasting notes. ;)
It’s been awhile since I drank this tea and I realized that I missed it, like one of those worn old sweaters – not fit to wear in public but still comfy as hell. I freely admit that this tea isn’t anything special, but it gives me a good energy boost without the jitters and it tastes quite pleasant, particularly with milk.
Yawns This is a good wake-up call this early in the morning.
I accidently added too much milk and that kinda drowned the flavour. Oops. :(
I made a strong cup of this forgetting that we had no milk. Ah well, it’s still drinkable even though it’s too bitter for my liking without milk.
It’s interesting that despite it’s robustness it still tastes better plain than the generic orange pekoe made the same way.
