Sipdown! Which i think puts me at about 271? or there abouts. In a perfect world i could get through 20 sipdowns over the weekend but i’m not sure how doable that will be given that i should probably leave the house at least for a little while :)
I picked up this tea to share with Raritea in one of our joint orders. Not because i thought it would actually taste like black forest cake, but because the description was cherry cream and it was a herbal tea. I need more of those in my cupboard since i think 80% of my teas are black teas. I’m not sure exactly how long i steeped this for, i kind of stopped paying attention to it. I suspect for anyone willing to try this one out, that 6 mins might be sufficient if you want to avoid having the hibiscus be as present. still though? This is delicious in my opinion even if it does taste similar to other herbal blends of this variety that i’ve had.
I do have to say though, purearoma is shaping up to be a pretty decent option for teas. Even though they’re across the ocean, it only took 6? business days to arrive, shipping is only 3.50 (pounds) or free after 30$ AND their sample sizes come in these fantastic resealable extra heavy duty silver envelopes. They’re like 5-7g! don’t ask why i know that :) Additionally the sample sizes are 10g, which leaves enough tea to play with and get a sense of whether you like the tea. And they’re reasonable priced.
so…yeah. enabler here :)
