1965 Tasting Notes
This still continues to be my favorite cheap-keep-the-canister-filled-at-all-times tea; someday I shall ask to see the bag so I can actually see the brand. (Yeah, I’m sure the store clerk will enjoy toting a 50-pound feed sack off the top shelf just to entertain the customer…)
In the meantime, I played a bit this morning and did 2 parts shaved unsweetened coconut chips to 1 part of these oolong leaves. I believe I’ve found a new favorite blend-in. Coconut and …. any suggestions?
Thanks to people in the neighborhood who decided to present a rock concert akin to Oompa Loompas playing AC/DC late, late, late last night (oops, early, early, early, early this morning)—and because I wrestled myself into a sleepless puddle attempting to call down blessings and not curses upon mine enemies—-I need a shot of coffee-kick energy this morning. Hoping that the mate induces a steady morning-long supply.
This treat and review comes courtesy of ashmanra and it made my week! I adore (and there’s a vocabulary word I don’t throw loosely or often) coconut in tea, and with the almond and rosebuds to sweeten the deal, this definitely takes the wedding cake! I was so entranced with the fumes while it was steeping, I think I took it a little over the edge (almonds can go bitter quickly) … but I hope to rectify that with an encore cup soon.
