Had this one yesterday.
This was one of the first loose leaf teas I ever tried. It was my favorite of the ones I tried back then and I still really like it today.
There is a grassy flavor, but it isn’t very strong. There’s something else about this tea that I can’t quite describe very well. When I was drinking it, I remember thinking that it was almost sweet, but not in the sugar kind of way.
My tin of this is long past its prime, but then again, so am I. I’m not a tea legalist—I ignore expiration dates and nurture my old stock just as long as possible. This needed a little nurturing this morning.
Sometimes flavored teas age well; sometimes they start tasting a little metallic. (Lesson to be learned: enjoy whatcha got while you have it.) On the other hand, it still smells like the empty bin the Kraft Caramels come in at the store, and a little milk/sugar bring it back to drinkable. (Other lesson to be learned: value whatcha got, even if it’s old and shopworn.)
Thanks to a nasty canker sore, every tea I have (painfully and agonizingly) sipped this week tastes like Orajel. Finally improving to the point I can pick up a little flavor, so I decided to treat myself to a sweet breakfast tea, this one from Michelle. (Did I goof? Is this supposed to be vanilla caramel?)
Straight up with no milk, I’m getting a good, dark strong burnt sugar flavor. Enough caffeine to be trusted for morning wake-up duty. Nothing to write rhapsodies about, but a good, sweet and solid tea.
