This is 5/12 Christmas Teas! Maybe I can finish the night at 9? I’m so slow. Also so busy getting stuff ready and dealing with the kiddo. :)

I was hoping this would help to settle my stomach as I have had TOO MANY cookies today. I can’t believe I’m 32 and this is still a thing I do, but they were so good, and there are so many more treats to eat and I just can’t do it. Just…. can’t.

I better go for a big walk tomorrow!

Also, I better have room for turkey in two hours.

Time for a nice mint tea. I assumed absinthe meant mint, and I was right. Mint and a little bit of licorice sweetness providing a little bit of coolness to my mouth. This is great.

ETA Wooo! This was my 1000th tasting note!

JustJames

ummmm….. absinthe is booze, is it not? the banned hallucinogenic one from france (in its legit form)….. there’s no mint in it, is there? 9so clueless, lol)

JustJames

okay…. yes mint, (teachable moment for james) but holy hell…. also pure grain alcohol and WORMWOOD?

Cavocorax

It’s not entirely banned! We bought some when I lived in Alberta because I wanted to see what the fuss was about! It had some wormwood in it as well, but now a days you can’t get ones with enough wormwood to make you hallucinate. (apparently)

I was only able to drink HALF a shot and even that was a struggle. My friends had 2-3 and it was enough to really mess them up. That’s enough for me!

You can get it in BC, or you could a few years ago, but maybe not with the wormwood.

JustJames

i have a friend with a friend who has a legit/legal distillery in the EU. it’s not allowed to be exported. not to anywhere in north america at least. you can buy the name and the soft stuff in liquor stores…. the real stuff (again i’m clueless) one shot equates to several hits of acid, apparently.

Cavocorax

Yikes. Yeah I think I’d be afraid of that!

JustJames

yeah. i know a few people that travel to the EU in order to indulge. soooooooooo not my thing. nice enough individuals, but we aren’t close, lol. i hve no prob saying chemicals like that terrify me! and (surprise, surprise) they think i’m allergic to them anyway.

JustJames

ARE YOU WATCHING THE XMAS INVASION????

JustJames

=0)))))))))))

Cavocorax

I WISH!!!!! We have company and I’m the ONLY WHOVIAN HERE. :O
(Until TK gets old enough that I can get her to watch them with me. I’ll probably watch it at 3 AM once I’m alone!)

JustJames

so many things i want to say but won’t…….!!!!

Terri HarpLady

Tony set it up to record for me. I’ll watch it tomorrow when he takes a bubble bath (yes, real men take very long bubble baths).

JustJames

you better believe real men take bubble baths! although to be honest i prefer bath salts…. but that’s just personal preference. =0)

JustJames

we drink wine and tea while bathing too…. and if we have waterproof phone cases we play video games! =0P

tea-sipper

happy 1000!

JustJames

Ha! Tea Sipper’s the only one on the ball!!

HAPPY 1000! (wow)

OMGsrsly

My parents got some absinthe with wormwood in it at a BC distillery.. :) Also, Merry Christmas, Happy 1000, and eat all the cookies you want. :D

Fjellrev

another of the 12 days of christmas sent via dexter apparently my goal today is to drink a bunch to stay warm so that hopefully whatever is at the mail today doesn’t explode my cupboard any further lol. This one is pretty tasty for a white! I’m starting to think that i prefer flavoured whites over flavoured greens and straight greens over straight whites. Either way i’ll figure it out eventually. :) This one isn’t too bad. I have zero clue about what absinthe should taste like but this is minty and refreshing without being overly ZOMG in your face flavoured. not likely a restock but i did enjoy this cup a bunch :) thanks again dexter! this has been fun!

Terri HarpLady

I’ve never had absinthe, but I’m thinking it’s got a liquorice type taste?

TheTeaFairy

I meant to tell you, it’s not fair that my cupboard was not up to date when we swapped but yours was so please have a look now and tell me if you crave something else, I can send it by the end of the week :-)

Sil

this for sure wasn’t licoricey heh
teafairy – you sent me more than enough things for me to explore! I just hope my package gets there soooooon!

TheTeaFairy

Ok, but don’t be shy, my cupboard is yours :-)
Fingers crossed, i’ll let you know when I get to my mailbox today!

Dexter

(I have had absinthe – IMHO it’s this odd/strange/horrible mix of licorice and herbal. Think of a blend of Jagermeister and Sambuca)

Sipdown!! (220)

I was a little hesitant given the mention of licorice but I think it actually works to enhance this cup. This is a very pleasant cup of white tea. It is minty but in a relaxed, and muted way. And the anise just rounds out the flavor.It is flavorful without being in-you-face. Smooth, and calming really. Thank you Cavocorax for sending some my way.

I think this is a sipdown, and I’ll pass along the little that’s left. While I do love white teas, and this one is quite sweet and unusual, it’s just not… shazaam POW kinda good, and with it being so rare, I think it’s best to share.

This is another tea I would really like to like, but for some reason the combination of mint and licorice fell a little flat for me while hot, but mellowed into something kinda nice once it cooled off.

It still wasn’t something I really enjoyed drinking, so even though I finished the cup it didn’t make a real impression on me. Not one to restock, I’m afraid.
