2811 Tasting Notes
This was a perfectly lovely black apple tea. I brewed it a touch too weak for my last cup (my down darn fault), but it was still sweet and apple-y and nice.
As I am in the mood for all the apple teas right now, this was well recieved.
I should be getting my next yarn and tea club shipment soon! I cannot wait to see it!
I must have had this before…. yes? But Steepster is not forthcoming with previous tasting notes, so maybe not? It seems impossible that I have not, but here we are!
This is like a version of hot cinnamon spice that is a touch more mellow. I like it, but can’t say I have a whole lot of the apple flavor. But not that I say that, I do get a very strong sense of apple cider-ness.
In any case, so far, so good!
So I have signed myself up for a yarn and tea club. Every month the local yarn shop and the local tea shop (who are neighbors, and who are one block away from a fabulous used bookstore, making this a very expensive area for me) team up to send some yarn and a new tea to me. I hit “add to cart” so fast I’m surprised my mouse survived.
This was the tea for September, and it smells wonderful. There is apple. There are spices. There are raisins. It smells magnificent.
Each of the times I’ve brewed it so far, it’s brewed up rather paler than it smells. Next cup I’m going to try a bit more leaf, and see where that gets me!
Oh thank goodness, my H&S order arrived last night, so I was able to brew some of my beloved Boston for breakfast. Yum!
This, to me, is autumn in a cup. This is what I think of when I think of the quintessence of fall.
Its going to get hot again in my neck of the woods (sob, sigh, wail), but for this morning, a calming and centering cup of Boston!
