Received this tea as a sample in the December Sipsby box and have really enjoyed it. It smells lovely-with the amaretto and cinnamon really shining through – but the flavor of the tea is surprisingly subtle and smooth.
Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon
I actually got this tea as a sample in my December Sips By box.
I was a bit hesistant to try it as I am not an amaretto fan and I don’t care for almond scented/flavored anything (though I LOVE almonds themselves)
The smell is quite strong, but I forged ahead.
And I am SO glad I did.
I drank the first quarter mug or so with no sugar and no milk.
It was good, just the right hint of sweetness and I thought the cinnamon tasted lovely. Not overpowering.
Then I added about a quarter cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I use Orgain, since it’s slightly creamier than most other almond milks) and it just bumped it up to a whole other level.
The creaminess from the almond milk with the slight sweet cinnamon-y-ness of the tea was just perfection.
Flavors: Almond, Cinnamon, Sweet, Tea
After trying Earl Grey tea and enjoying it, I thought I would try more black tea. I am trying to drink less coffee and substitute for tea instead, because I have found that I really enjoy the tea making process. It is very relaxing and I have felt that it calms my nerves and helps when I am very stressed out. This Ceylon Black tea tasted average in regards to flavor. It was nothing special, but it was definitely decent. What I noticed the most though was how much energy I had after drinking it. I purposely chose a black tea because of how much caffeine it contains. It was a very nice change from coffee and provided similar effects. I will definitely be trying some more black teas now. I will probably drink this Ceylon Black tea again at some point.
I went to Jasmine Pearl with a family member today and she ordered a pot of this. I ended up drinking a cup of this since we ended up sharing our pots. It was delicious! I don’t really have much to add as I drank it fairly quickly. I’ve found that Jasmine Pearl really excels at their green teas and of course green tea is my favorite! Sadly I was so indecisive on picking a green tea (I wanted to buy them all) that I didn’t end up purchasing one. I opted for a pu-erh and a chai instead. Between the two of us we ended up taking four teas home to try.
After I said NO MORE TEA, what did I do? The bulk spices, herbs and tea are the first thing to greet me at the co-op. At least I can get trivial quantities and not feel too bad about buying more tea.
Brewing loose tonight based on color (hello darkness my old friend). The puer is ok quality with plenty of large cut leaves but a thick layer of dust does settle in the bottom of the cup after pouring through a strainer. It’s thick like a cup of french press coffee, earthy, mushroomy, maybe a little bittersweet, very buttery after first steep and pretty clean-tasting with some astringency. The sticky rice herb isn’t as strong as I’d like it to be but its sweetness later becomes pronounced. Overall, it’s solid. The mini tuo cha form is great for ease of use and I’ll consider keeping some of these in my backpack once I buy another strainer.
One 6.5g mini tuo cha gave me 3-10oz brews western style with water off-boil.
This was the pot of tea I ended up choosing and shared with my grandmother. It was really good. I ended up feeling very full after one cup of it as it was VERY rich. So I suggested we swap and she agreed. It worked out very well as we ended up each having a cup of our own tea and each others. She commented that the smell of this tea was making her hungry. She’s diabetic so she can’t eat much rice so she especially liked this one. We ended up going out to Sushi for lunch afterwards.
Adventures in tea drinking!
My morning sachet of this completely overturned, dumping all the loose leaf into the cup, where it pooled at the bottom like a malevolent seaweed cluster.
I strained the leaf out, and was left with a really rather nice cup of this warming chai. A good glend for a morning.
Part of my sipdown mania is fueled by the fact that I have plenty of teas I have not yet tasted in my cupboard! Shameful. Time to get sipping.
I bought this on a little trip I took back in September, and have not yet tried. Well, the madness stops today! A pot of this shall be my morning treat.
This is a nice chai. Its got a nice spiciness without being overwhelming, so its a very warm cup of spices.
I’m glad I have this! Its really nice!
Ever since I got this, I’ve thought of it more as a daytime herbal than an evening herbal. Its the chai spices, which seem too lively to really work for me at night.
So, into the work bag it goes, where it shall serve as my “other” blend, until it is sipped down.
It does its job very, very well, but the idea of an herbal chai has me more jazzed than the actual reality of an herbal chai.
Its a cold and foggy day. The perfect day to go to yoga, come home, and hang out in my warm house with tea, movies and my knitting. Just perfect!
I am having a cup of this, a herbal chai, and it was very nice indeed today. Trouble is I wasn’t paying good attention to the steep time, so I’m not quite sure what I did.
Oh well! I’ll just have to try again next cup, and see if I can recreate it.
I am now 100% unable to get Star Wars out of my mind.
I’m one of lifes big nerds. Science fiction, magic, people with swords and capes? Dragons? Robots? Sweeping soundtracks? Sign me up. And Star Wars has been a much beloved property since my older sister showed it to me and our brother when she was babysitting us one day. I was in love, and nothing (not even freaking Jar Jar Binks) would diminish my love.
But, you know how you think you can appreciate something and love it and feel comfortable that you have thought all the thoughts and loved all the love for it? Well, the Last Jedi has proven me wrong. I didn’t expect this film to make me love the franchise more, but it has, and I’m turning the film over and over in my mind like a river stone, practically aching for the next one to come out.
Eeek. What do you mean, 2019? Eeeeeek!
Its a good thing there are lots of other movies between now and then for me to geek out to. (I’m looking at you, Infinity War).
Which is a very off topic way of saying that I drank this tea and thought about the Last Jedi, and enjoyed its spicy qualities while doing so.
