2335 tasting notes

I’ve had a time chasing down a picture and company-provided description of this tasty afternoon tea—at the moment, what I’ve pulled in to the description is a picture of the gift box in which this is enclosed. What we’ve got is a tasty, not-too-heavy gentle black tea with strawberry and vanilla notes. Something you’d serve in Grandma’s teacups, although it was sufficiently tasty in a mug.

Also something I should’ve served this morning, when I took a tea party to my church kids. Nothing fancy, just an electric kettle and a cherry-wood box of bagged assorted oddments—flavors I thought would appeal to 10-year-olds. The big winners: Bigelow Eggnogg’n, Salted Caramel and White Chocolate Peppermint. (I told you, nothing fancy.) Oh, and one renegade who loved Tazo Wild Sweet Orange.

My girls were priceless when they walked in: “You brought real tea! Oh, and it’s in a fancy box!” Doesn’t take much to let young’uns know you love them. I think I need to do this more often.

I’m surprised that one of of them liked that Tazo tea! What a fun idea!

Ah what a lovely idea! ♥

I have never tried Eggnogg’n. Is it good? Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride will forever remind of KS.

I was wondering what happened to KS and it says on his profile he passed away. I didn’t know this. Very sad.

Eggnogg’n was my first “favorite” Bigelow holiday tea. I had some Sugar Cookie Sleigh ride and should’ve added it to the kid mix…I believe I’ll make a cuppa this afternoon in memory of KS. He is missed! Had a great impact on me, although we never met in person.

I didn’t know KS had passed! ): so sad. Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride was sooo good.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
