268 Tasting Notes
It’s been a long while since I’ve had this one. I feel a headache coming on so I decided I needed something a little more than my green teas I’ve been leaning toward recently. I didn’t want the bang in your face, wake up this instant, taste that I get from the blacks I have in my stash.
I still add a bit of sugar to this one. I think this tea, especially since it’s bagged, has a lovely flavor.
I have no idea how much leaf was used nor how long this was steeped for. The boyfriend made it for me and is now laughing at me as my first reaction was, “whoo! that’s tart!” This is a sharp difference from the last time I had this. I really enjoyed it last time. I’m thinking he let it cool too long before serving it.
This is a little too tart for me tonight so I ended up adding a little bit of sugar. I find this tea very enjoyable. You definitely get the blueberry out of the sip! That was what I was looking for to start my evening. I really like the color the liquid of this tea is too, just beautiful.
Made this on my way out the door this morning. It wasn’t cool enough to drink until quite a bit into my morning! I decided not to do it over ice this morning as I can’t seem to get the balance of the ice, leaf, and sweetener correct.
This morning there wasn’t as much of a strawberry flavor and more of a bitter taste at the end of the sip. Still enjoyable and it kept me full-ish until right before lunch. I love that.
Happiness in a cup! Looking at the ingredients, I don’t know how but I am getting a wonderful muffin type flavor with this cup that I am absolutely loving. At least for my unrefined palate, I think this tastes like a well balanced cup that is making me want to stay up later than I should with another cup and a book. Great tea to end my long day on!
