1082 Tasting Notes
This was a gift from a friend. She bought me several loose teas at a shop in Ocean City, NJ as a thank you for babysitting her cat and garden. I wish I had more information about the teas, but the lack of information has not kept me from enjoying them.
This tisane is good. The cranberry is strong with the orange taking the edge off the tartness. It’s a lovely evening drink when I want to relax with a warm cup of tea and a good book.
This is why I love Steepster – I never would have tried this tea if I had not read the comments about it. I’ve passed it up year after year because the name did not appeal to me, but after reading the reviews I knew I had to try it. It is wonderful. Wonderful! Perfect for cooler nights. The fact that it’s decaf is a bonus (since actually sleeping instead of running around with a caffeine buzz is necessary at some point).
My morning pot of tea. The first cup I added milk and sugar. I enjoyed it, but some of the flavor was masked by the sweetness. The following cups I only added milk, and each cup was lovely. I think this is the first pot of tea I have drunk by myself. It is a very good basic black tea. I’m sure once my family figures that out I will not have the pot to myself for long.
I was at the store today, and I notices that the holiday teas had made their way to the shelves. After looking at all of the selections I chose Christmas morning, and I am glad that I did. It is an interesting mix (Assam, Ceylon, Sumatra, Jasmine green tea, and Keemun) that is easy to drink, and strong enough to be in the “first mug of the morning” category. This could be one of my new favorites.
