Latte Sipdown (599)!
Welp… I was actually really enjoying this latte; I’d finished about half of it, and I had it on the desk right next to my bed – I was sipping on it while working on tasting notes. I guess the last time I set it back on the desk it was a little bit too close to the edge though, and seemingly out of nowhere the glass just fell and spilled milk all over my bed and down the side of the desk. It took ages to clean up, and was a bit of a piss off since this was a nice latte and also the last of this tea…
Before the very tragic spill, I was finding that this tea was reminding me a lot of Lemon Pound Cake, from DT – same sort of creamy and buttery vanilla, with lots of lemongrass. The vanilla was a really nice touch! I saw lots of lavender in the dry leaf and I could smell it as the tea was steeping, but to be honest I wasn’t getting a lot of it in the flavour – definitely more of a lemon/vanilla sort of profile going on. I was a touch sad I wasn’t getting the lavender, but I’m also a TOTAL sucker for lemon and vanilla so I was pretty in love with the profile.
I’m just pissed that I dumped half of it. Ugh!
