drank The Shire by Curiosa Society
2967 tasting notes

Hello everyone! Oof, June was a wash in terms of me writing tasting notes. It was a busy month. (The anniversary of the death of my father, both of my far-flung siblings being in town, preparing for my boss to go on paternity leave, auditions and early rehersal for a play, and coming off a week where the low temp was 103 all week).
I shall try to be here more. I do love it so.
So I ordered this tea from Curiosa society, which is a shop full of “extraordinary goods”. I’ve ordered cool cards and gifts from them before, and when I saw they were selling teas, well, I jumped.
This is a strawberries and cream type blend, which always sound so lovely, but this came out a touch bitter to me. What is the steeping secret for this sort of blend? Further experimentation is needed.
On a heat related note- what is everyones preferred method for making iced tea? I have decided this is the year I really get the hang of it, but advice would be appriciated!

I just cold steep in the fridge overnight…no science to it, but when it gets this hot (Missouri is getting some of your weather this week), flavor subtleties aren’t very important to me.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
