2778 Tasting Notes
I did not get enough sleep last night, by a long shot. So this morning I am most certainly in a fog, and so I thought I’d try this.
Good choice! A strong breakfast blend. Not so malty or overpowering that you feel like you’ve been whacked in the head, but strong.
Thank goodness. I’m going to need all the help I can get this morning!
The moment the air had even a hint of crispness, I ordered a lot of tea for Harney and Sons, and am now smugly sitting on a small mountain of teas.
This is a new flavor for them, and I tossed it into the cart excitedly. This tea was voted on to determine who would win, and I really liked the tea that won last year (Victorian London Fog), so I had high hopes for this one.
I like breakfast blends, and one with a touch of maple sounds brilliant.
However….. I cant say I taste any of the maple. Its a decent breakfast blend, but I am lacking that punch of earthy sweetness that I was expecting.
Hmm. Well, I’ll keep trying and see what happens.
So, in my “Try new companies” tea goal, I’ve ordered a whole bunch of teas from Plum Delux. This is the first one I’ve cracked into it.
This is a good and strong chai, which is exactly the sort of jolt I needed this afternoon. The base and the spices are hanging out well together for this cup, and I enjoyed it, to be sure.
I never could get this tea to work for me, which I take full blame for. I’ve always had trouble with blends with Jasmine in them- they go all funny on me nine times out of ten. The tenth is heaven, but I can never get it consistantly to do that.
Oh well. We were simply not to be. Farewell Valiant Vanilla!
I’m almost out of this tea, which is a bit of a shame. I’ve really enjoyed it.
It’s turned, almost exclusively, into my Sunday morning tea. Sunday is the one day that I get to sleep in a bit, and don’t have immediate things I need to be doing, so this funny combination of black tea and chamomile ease me gently into wakefulness.
It’s a mild, pleasantly fresh tea, which I’ve been liking all summer, and it’s possible I will get more of it in future.
