The irony here is that what, two days after I say that I’ll never request this tea… I request this tea.

But I’m not changing my rating, no no. So here’s the humor. I went to a semi-fancy beer place, and bought a semi-fancy bottle of mead, imported from Denmark. Missy also wanted tea, and the question was posed:

What kind of tea should we drink, that won’t spoil or overpower the flavors of the mead?

That really mild Nonsuch Estate tea that we tried the other day, of course. Worked perfectly. The same timid profile that left me feeling ‘meh’ a few days ago accompanied tonight’s drink rather well. Though, I kind of feel bad for it. It’s a terrible measuring tool to comment on how well this sits in the shadow of the night’s other beverage! If Nonsuch was a child, I’d be giving him a complex.

As a semi-fancy alcohol snob at heart with the purchasing power of the poorest parts of winos and college kids combined, I’m a bit curious. What mead did you get?

Mead is one beverage I’ve only had once or twice, and those were far enough along into the evening for it’s memory to be hazy at best.

If you don’t have a career in writing/communications, you should have. Your reviews always catch my eye.
Missy? Do you get a chance to talk? : )

@Blake Vikingernes Mjød from Dansk Mjød. I love copy and paste. I ran downstairs to look at the bottle and was wondering how am I going to get those symbols in there! This is the second time I’ve had mead as well. I remembered it being more honey like and very hmm tame. This was a bit a of a shock but good. Now if I could get mead with vanilla bean in it….

@ Cheryl LOL he’s not nearly as loquacious at home. I do enjoy reading his reviews even after talking to him about the tea.

Angrboda

Well, there weren’t any vanilla in Scandinavia during the iron and viking ages. :)

For the Danish letters (or other more specialised letters and symbols) I find this a really useful site http://www.starr.net/is/type/altnum.htm

Otherwise of course the obvious solution is to get a proper keyboard with all 29 letters of the alphabet on it. ;)

Missy

haha! You’ve made some proper points! Thanks for the link. My daughter likes to use these in names and such. I’ll be sure to send her an email full of them now. ;)

Blake

Thanks Missy. The one mead I can recall I actually remember the same way you do. Lots of honey, and very tame. Time to hunt for something new…

@Cheryl You are too kind. I don’t have a career in communications (other than the occasional emails to my… clients? stakeholders?). I’m glad my reviews are enjoying :)

So I brewed up a pot of Samurai Chai earlier but I had to toss it. I have a spider on a porch that likes to try to use my cup as base for her web. This time she got my cup pretty good as I was tooling around on amazon. I think this episode is the final installment. It sure looked like I had a little bug body in my cup when I tossed it out. So on to the tea I actually get to drink.

I call this one Nosuck tea and it lives up to it’s name! I find it very smooth and mellow. I see that the description uses coppery and bright. I agree with these two assessments. I find a sweet taste at the end reminiscent of honeysuckle. Not even a hint of astringency so far. I’m quite happy with this purchase.

LOL you said nosuck tea :)

Missy

Since I’m terrible with pronunciation, any thing that looks like it might not sound like it’s spelled gets a new name.

Azzrian

Haha excellent – I’m down with that. I think I have some form of dyslexia because I always say things different from other people so its all good with me. It was funny though.
