2217 Tasting Notes
Last bit of this. So mapley. So good.
I wouldn’t order again, as I’ve been having issues with some oolongs hurting my tummy, but I am appreciating this one right now. :)
With milk, because yum.
(A quick rinse, and then a 2 minute steep. I might do a 3 minute steep later.)
Another tea I’m finishing up. From Sil. Ages and ages ago.
It’s decent. I’d like the strawberry-vanilla better on a black tea base rather than a mixed tea base. The oolong/green is upsetting my tummy today.
Thank you for sharing, Sil. :)
(I have no idea what temp the water was at, because my kettle has decided that today is the day it will boil forever. So.)
I have been saving SO MANY teas.
This is one I was saving. Needless to say, it’s lost a LOT since I first got it. It’s an OK tea now, but not what I’m looking for.
I think I need to go through all my teas and try them and just compost the ones that are toast. :/ So disappointed in myself.
I can’t remember if I bought this in Chicago, or if I bought it at some random shop over the summer. Whenever I bought it, it was such a good choice.
Sometimes I just want a black tea later in the evening. This one is perfect.
With milk, as always.
YES. I went to Chicago, where there’s an Adagio and a TeaG, and I BOUGHT NO TEA.
This one is from Sil, who got it from Stephanie, who apparently got it from TeaNecromancer.
What a journey.
I rinsed, and am steeping one heart for a while in my usual mug. It kinda smells like just a floral black tea. Tastes kinda like a floral black tea. Has the puerh been sitting too long? IDK. There’s no funk. Just a little astringency.
Not bad, but not really my ahem cup of tea.
ALSO, I forgot to mention this. I made a gluten free bread dough that’s actually OK. I have calzones in the oven. CALZONES. SO EXCITE.
Am I back?
I might be back.
Anyways, IDK what this tea is. Vanilla? Something else? No clue. But it’s pretty darn tasty with a spoonful of maple whipped cream.
Thank you, Bear with Me! I’ve had this FOREVER, but I swear I’m going to finish trying All The Teas™.
Some friends got me this for my birthday last spring, and then I didn’t see them until November, and this is the first time I’m having the tea.
It IS tasty, but whoa nelly, that is SWEET. I only usually put sugar/honey/maple into some herbal teas, or lapsang souchong.
This is more of an occasional tea, I think. But it is nice, and they also gave me one of those super cute cupcake tea infusers. :)
