1913 Tasting Notes
Today in tea drinking, our friend Rosehips begins to panic slightly about the size of her cupboard, and the fact that more teas will be arriving soon. So lets join her as she works her way through various samples.
Harney & Sons really, really want me to like this, as this is the third sachet I’ve got from them of this. Its not the blend for me. I’m not major on tropical flavors, and this just misses the mark for me.
Oh well. Its gone, and I can breath that much easier. Sheesh, Still so much tea to drink!
In my quest to try all the dessert teas, Ost has been helpful, in sending this along.
I’m glad to have tried it. Its rather chocolaty, which is not my very favorite tea flavor, but its got a nice and creamy mouthfeel.
I wish there was more of a frosting note, though. I’m getting cake, just not quite cupcake.
This is one of those samples that is fab to try, but it illustrates that you’re probably not going to buy it.
Many thanks to Ost for the sample!
I really liked the mini tins from Lupicias holiday collection. Just enough tea in them to try the tea, and make up your mind, not enough to get bored with it.
The opinion on this is that its good, but I would not go out of my way for it. I find the blend of flavors to be a little puzzling, but its not undrinkable.
This is a sipdown! All te more nessisary, as I have some teas from Butiki coming in.
I woke up with a headache, which sucks majorly. Bleh.
But! I had some of this, and feel much better.
I really don’t know how this tea can manage to taste “dusted” but it does. It tastes exactly like a custard with a faint dusting of nutmeg across the top. I always feel like I’m missing a spoon, when I have this, like I should be eating it out of a ramekin, not drinking it out of my largest tea cup.
So creamy! So rich! So, so very impressed.
Oh Ost you’ve spoiled me with all the lovely samples! I’m rich! My cupboard is huge!
I really, really hate to clean rooibos out of a strainer, but fortunately I have all these little paper pouches, to create my own “tea bags”, so that’s what I used to try this sample.
Its a bit woody, but its got an underlying creaminess that is quite pleasant. I smell the maple more than I taste it, but its still there.
And I have enough for another cup! Hurrah! I love new teas.
