1496 Tasting Notes
Not sure anyone would drink this other than, well, if they’re under the weather. Which is when I did. Definitely felt better after, although I don’t remember it tasting like much, other than… herbal. A touch sweet.
Handmade in a really tiny tea house in Cranbrook, BC. No internet site, just a phone number, and a ton of awards from local country fairs for her teas and jams.
Flavors: Herbs, Sweet
Kind of reminds me of Twining’s Buttermint, but it’s easier to find here. :P Still, not that easy, but, tasty enough and with enough in my cupboard that it’ll do me! Yay…. minty vanilla, who knew I’d love you so much.
Flavors: Candy, Mint, Vanilla
Thank you, whomever posted the right pic for this tea! I always get it mixed up with the Cara McGee version on Steepster (and this one, I like more). Today however it just wasn’t it’s normal AMAZING self – I may be getting sick, this is usually my first sign, that few teas appeal or taste good suddenly. Sigh.
Cooled however, this was almost it’s normal amazing self. Almost….
Steeped this all night, downed it this morning, trying to fight off a tickle in my throat.
This is THE tea from WP that I’d order in ridiculous amounts, and it was never enough. I could drink it every day, it’s spicy and rough and tumble, blunt, this-is-how-it-is tea. In your face tea. I AM IN CHARGE TEA! I own you, tea. Yes, I love this stuff, because it’s so akin to my personality (which is to say, a bit abrasive with a lot of spice and passion).
This version of the tea (which I ordered prior to my six month exploration of Europe, but it only got here after I left) is VERY different to the versions I’ve had in the past. This version, and I don’t know what’s changed, is dark, dark purple, almost black. It tastes strongly of molasses and little else. I still drink it, I still feel amazeballs, but it’s less — me — than it was in the past.
Flavors: Molasses, Spicy
Still love this tea, and knew I could count on it for some yum amidst the ick I’ve found so far in my cupboard today. I WANT MORE CHILI! There’s really none in any sip I’ve had (last time or this time) and this makes me sad. I also get no pineapple – it’s really just a fantastic, luscious, mango tea with enormous mango chunks in it.
Oh wait — I taste pineapple this time. Hooray!
If anyone wants any, let me know – this is one of those “hard to get teas” (not even sure if you can get it anymore), and while I do love it, it’s not on my must-have list.
Flavors: Mango, Pineapple
