Shae Advent Day 18
I’ve been drinking this tea various ways for the past 24 hours, trying different methods to help it be its best. I think I like it best at room temperature with almond milk. However, there’s just something about this one that’s not working for me. The strawberry comes off as super tangy and doesn’t seem to combine well with the honeybush base. Those are the only flavors I get – tangy fruit and something from the base, but they just don’t work together. Drinkable, but not amazing for me.
Mastress Alita’s Monthly Sipdown Challenge
June 2022 → An African tea
This blend is made with South African honeybush, so it’s my pick for today’s sipdown prompt. Satori Tea Company is one of my favorites – yes, I know I say this every time – and this blend is a good one. It’s strawberry candy all the way. I love it.
Flavors: Candy, Strawberry
Strawberry candies! Oh I really like this one.
Appreciating the little things tonight, the small miracles I so often take for granted – a clear sky, twinkling stars and a slivered moon on display. Moody, dark photographs. Words of rest and peace and inspiration too. Simultaneous quiet + chatty, playful kittens in the background. A new outlook, literally, as I’ve moved to a different window space to work late tonight. Maybe a new outlook mentally as well. Embracing hope.
I tried coconut milk in this cup and it curdled, but it’s delicious and the ribbons are lovely and since I don’t actually have to chew it I’ll call that a win. ; )
I hope the sky is just as lovely, just as beautiful and just peaceful, wherever you are tonight.
Flavors: Candy, Strawberry
This was not only a new-to-me tea blend, but a tea company I’d never even heard of! Based on this one, I’d be interested in trying more from Satori in the future. The fruit flavors are clean and fresh and not at all artificial and the black tea base provides a nice depth. This one’s staying with me!
Flavors: Smooth, Stonefruit, Sweet
Vibrant gold color. Steeped leaves are very vegetal. Tea gives off strong oyster notes. Tastes full bodied, thick, creamy, very salty and fishy (oysters). Astringent aftertaste.
Second steep is more balanced. Minerality balances saltiness and oyster taste of first steep. Mouth puckering body.
Flavors: Fishy, Salty
So, this is technically the second time I’ve had this, but I can’t remember much about the first time, because I have been in a haze the last few weeks, and I didn’t really pay much attention to this tea. However, today I was determined to remember to be better about it, and make a note, since Shae was so kind in sharing this with me…as her first trade. :)
I definitely got spice, and your basic chai spice, it seemed to be balanced blend…and although I could not detect it immediately, I got a very nice warming coconut note at the end of the sip. So lovely.
I did not make this latte style, but I did brew a little extra and use milk at the end.
Another restock of an old favorite! This one is full of large coconut shavings and smells just like gingersnap cookies. It’s nice to have it back in my tea cabinet again. If Satori ever goes out of business, I’ll be so sad. They have so many good blends!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cookie, Ginger
I enjoyed this one so much yesterday that I had to go for another cup. I wanted to steep this longer since I knew I wouldn’t get a good second cup out of it. Try to pull all of the flavor into this first cup. I used less water at a lower temperature for the same effect and to keep it from going bitter. It tastes nutty, like almonds maybe. There is also some spice there that’s more warming.
Flavors: Almond, Nutty, Spices
I’m not sure how, but I accidentally removed this one from my Steepster cupboard so I couldn’t find it earlier. Never fear, it’s still here and I still really love it. The aroma is cookies and nutty coconut. It steeped up a little bitter today but some honey and cream evened it out. I’m not really tasting any chai spices so maybe I’ll need to shake it up next time. The flavor is still good though, thick and creamy. Much butter than this morning’s Tulsi Detox. But now I have officially logged each cup in my cupboard. Goal complete! This is my celebratory cup. :)
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 15 minutes
I wish I had read my notes on this one before re-steeping. Apparently, I wasn’t too happy with the second steep last time around. The liquid is very light in color. There is still some flavor, more spice, but not enough for me.
Flavors: Bitter, Coconut, Cookie, Nutty, Spices
Today’s cup is sweet and milky and spiced with ginger. I steeped the tea in 4 ounces of water, then added 4 ounces of steaming milk that I had warmed with a spoon of honey. It’s a luxurious treat this Saturday morning.
This is a good tea, one that smells of ginger snaps and coconut. The deep, dark tea and the spices – it’s a welcome departure from the fruity hibiscus herbals I’ve been drinking this week. Having teas like this one reminds me of why I keep coming back to tea.
Flavors: Cookie, Ginger
This tea smells incredible. It’s all coconut and smells fresh and tropical. The dry mix is mostly tea – small, long, twisted black leaves. There are also small pieces of ginger and cinnamon bark. The aroma kind of reminds me of ginger snap cookies (the good, chewy kind), but I wouldn’t necessarily say that it smells strongly of ginger. The fragrance is sweeter.
The tea leaves must have soaked up quite a bit of water because I don’t have nearly as much in my cup now as I put in. The liquid is dark and a little murky. I smell more ginger now but still the coconut. The taste is mostly ginger, again like those ginger snaps. There is also a bit of tartness there, like the slight acidity of lemon. It doesn’t taste like lemon, but it does have some zip. I don’t taste the cardamom or the cinnamon really, but it’s nice to be able to experience a spice other than cinnamon every now and then. I’m having this cup with a banana muffin and the two are getting along together quite nicely.
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 10 minutes
I smell more cinnamon this time around. This cup is light in color but still a little cloudy. It still has the sweet perfume. I’m not sure it’s worth the re-steep, but it does taste more spiced with the second cup.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut, Cookie, Ginger, Spices, Sweet, Tart, Tropical
I’ve lightly sweetened this today. The main flavor is hibiscus. It’s not really tart this time around, but there is a drying sensation in the back of my mouth. This is one my husband would love, I’m sure of it. To me, it’s just not that exciting.
Flavors: Drying, Hibiscus
