1470 Tasting Notes
This tin of tea is the first tin of tea we ever bought. So yay memories! But this also means it’s five and a half years old. Yikes. My tummy has been off for a few days, so hopefully this will help with that.
It’s still good! Gingery and earthy and tasty. Since it’s taken us five years for drink down this tin, we likely won’t get any more, but it will be yummy until it’s gone.
I had forgotten how much I love this tea. For me, it’s like hot cocoa with a hint of mint. Hot cocoa is too…cocoa for me. Blasphemy, I know, but sometimes I want something lighter than just liquid chocolate, as I’m not a huge chocolate fan myself. But this tea is just perfect, creamy and smooth without being overwhelming.
I woke up to a wonderfully drizzly morning. Yesterday the build up for a storm gave me a migraine so bad I couldn’t eat or get out of bed or barely even opening my eyes. But worse than that, I couldn’t even handle tea! :O Awful. So this morning I reached for two of my favorites, Nepal Black and Read My Lips. My cuppa Nepal Black was just lovely, and I was reminded just why I love this tea so much. It was bracing without being harsh and has a sweet note I just adore. This will always be a staple in my home.
Ooooh, I’m almost out of this one, which is bittersweet because I love it. It tastes like raspberries and cream, sweet without being cloying. Mine doesn’t have any meringue left, I don’t know if they just melted with time or if I just had them all ages ago.
I miss RiverTea so much, with their unique blends and tasty basics. Hopefully TeaTaxi will fill that niche for me. crosses fingers Though no one can come close to the customer service at RiverTea, they were amazing.
It is a beautiful morning, if only because it is no longer yesterday XD. Yesterday we discovered our bedframe is moldy and rotting, I broke my toe, and spilled tea all over myself. Today will be better because I say so XD.
However we did organize our sipdowns into caffeinated and non caffeinated, so I can just grab one and go. Hopefully my grabbing this one bodes well for the day.
I had this with an avocado smashed onto an everything bagel and it is just perfect. The tea is nice and fruity, though I wouldn’t pick out strawberry specifically. And the lime kinda tastes like lime peel. Still, it’s a tasty morning cup.
Love this tea, but will likely finish a sipdown of it tomorrow, which is sad, but this tea is another from our scary-old collection XD. Added a splash of vanilla sugar free syrup because I was trying to finish off the bottle and unf. It takes the dreamsicleness of this to a whole new level. So yummy, I will be sad to see this one go, but glad to have another old tea out of my cupboard.
We bought this tea ages ago when we first went to Tealish because Bella is the name of the first cat that we ever adopted together, just after our wedding. She’s currently curled up on my chest, trying to distract me from everything else XD.
I love this tea. Every time I have this tea, I realize how much I love it, and then I don’t drink it for months, years. Ooops. Well, today is a sipdown of that first bag we bought ages ago and it’s as good as ever. I think this needs to go on our restock list. I won’t place an order just to get more, but if we’re already ordering, this will definitely be one to get more of.
