drank Morning Tea by A C Perch's
1329 tasting notes

Finally something sensible! December 16th’s tea. I decided to put yesterday’s satchets with the tin of it that I already had.

This! This is far more me than most of the things I’ve had in the calendar so far (apart of course from the wonderful Panyong.), and the stuff I hoped I’d find. Next year I might get the Christmas calendar from Simply Tea which costs the tip of a jet, but is all unflavoured things. We’ll see.

Anyway, I think I’m putting this under the correct heading. The satchets say breakfast tea, and it does indeed taste like Assam and Ceylon, so this is where I’m putting it. Apparently this is the oldest blend in their repertoire.

It’s strong and flavourful and with a great deal of raisin and honey notes to it. I’m enjoying this very much and it’s just the thing to have before making dinner (I’m famished) and after a round of Parcel Bingo with the Danish postal service, in which I came to pick up a parcel and went home with a totally different parcel (also for me, so no catastrophe there) which I didn’t even know had arrived yet. I shall have to go back and have another crack at getting the first parcel tomorrow. Ordering Christmas presents online is easier in the moment of shopping. Not so much when trying to keep track of which parcels have arrived and how many are still outstanding…

Oh yeah, keeping up with xmas parcels can get a little crazy. It also seems never-ending!

I know exactly what you mean about keeping up with the incoming packages.

And the queues! I waited 20 minutes yesterday for my turn when sending a parcel to the UK.

Bio

Ang lives with Husband and two kitties, Charm and Luna, in a house not too far from Århus. Apart from drinking tea, she enjoys baking, especially biscuits, reading and jigsaw puzzles. She has recently acquired an interest in cross-stitch and started a rather large project. It remains to be seen whether she has actually bitten off more than she can chew…

Ang prefers black teas and the darker sorts of oolongs. She has to be in the mood for green and white, and she enjoys, but knows little to nothing about, pu-erh.

Her preferences with black teas are the Chinese ones, particularly from Fujian, but also Keemun and just about anything smoky. She occasionally enjoys Yunnans but they’re not favourites. She has taken some time to research Ceylon teas, complete with reference map, and has recently developed some interest in teas from Africa.

She is sceptical about Indian blacks as she generally finds them too astringent and too easy to get wrong. She doesn’t really care for Darjeelings at all. Very high-grown teas are often not favoured.

She likes flavoured teas as well, particularly fruit flavoured ones, but also had an obsession with finding the Perfect Vanilla Flavoured Black and can happily report that this reclusive beast has been spotted in a local teashop near where she works. Any and all vanilla flavoured teas are still highly attractive to her, though. Also nuts and caramel or toffee. Not so much chocolate. It’s a texture thing.

However, she thinks Earl Grey is generally kind of boring. Cinnamon and ginger are also not really a hit, and she’s not very fond of chais. Evil hibiscus is evil. Even in small amounts, and yes, Ang can usually detect hibiscus, mostly by way of the metallic flavour of blood it has.

Ang is not super impressed with rooibos or honeybush on their own. She doesn’t care for either, really, but when they are flavoured, they go usually go down a treat.

Ang used to have a Standard Panel of teas that she tried to always have on hand. She put a lot of thought into defining it and decided what should go on it. It was a great idea on paper, but in practise has been discovered to not really work as well.

Ang tries her best to make a post on Steepster several times a week. She tends to write her posts in advance in a word doc (The Queue) and posting from there. This, she feels, helps her to maintain regularity and stops her from making five posts in three days and then going three weeks without posting anything at all.

Angrboda is almost always open to swapping. Just ask her. Due to the nature of the queue, however, and the fact that it’s some 24 pages long at the moment, it may take a good while from she receives your parcel and until she actually posts about it.
