1088 Tasting Notes
Oh yeah, this is the business.I don’t know what it’s doing outside, but inside, it is relatively cool. Perfect for this eggnog rich green.
Sometimes, the allspice is just a teeny bit much for me—that is to say, in some sips—but usually, all is perfect.
I continue to be bewildered to some extent that eggnog flavours work so beautifully with the butter green tea here.
It will be a sad day when I run out, but in the meantime, so much pleasure with this.
I don’t know whether it is age or flavouring, but I am getting a bit of plasticky kind of imitation flavour going on here. Similar to the flavouring of On Wisconsin, which for me strikes a false note. A shame because there are lovely lilts of stone fruit sweetness here and a wee bit of tartness, but I am distracted by that thick cloying plastic overlay.
Perhaps the next cup will be better.
edit—As the cup cools way down, the plastic cream aspect almost completely disappears to be replaced with delicate peach juice flavours.
To be continued.
This blend emerged in the midst of my—stop the insanity with the teas, lady—reshuffling of my tea cupboard.
Most delicious honeyed chamomile with floral glints of sunshine. Beautiful. Somehow, the amount of rooibos in my pouch has multiplied. No matter.
Perfect timing too as I challenge myself with cutting caffeine earlier in the day, aiming for three o’clock. Today, I began drinking this at about 5. Could be worse.Even though the chamomile clogs the strainer screen in my steeper and makes cleaning it more of a challenge, I am delighted to have rediscovered this. First world problems, I know.
