Sipdown (621)!

Another share from Kittenna! Admittedly, I don’t really remember this from the HP books/movies and I’ve never actually had plum pudding before so I’m not totally sure what I should be comparing this to? Though, in doing some quick Googling I did find an interesting article sort of relating to this topic:

Steeped up, I find this tea nice but not outstanding. There’s definitely a fruityness to the blend that is plum adjacent; meaning I find it stonefruit like but would not be capable of blindly identifying as that of plum. There are some warming spice notes, like cinnamon and maybe nutmeg. That’s pretty comforting; and I don’t hate the idea of a gentle spiced, warming plum kind of brew. It’s a touch astringent, in a way that adds body and complexity to the profile. I’m missing a sweetness or creaminess that would make me think of pudding; even kind of pudding that are more of a spiced sort of dish still have some try of creamy/custardy element. I know Anne said she added vanilla and custard essence to this; it’s just not translating for me personally though.

It’s still a good, solid cup though – it just lacks… sparkle? That hint of magic that would give me all the Harry Potter vibes? Something in that vein…

There really wasn’t a Dirigible Plum Pudding in the Harry Potter world – but in the final movie when the trio goes to Luna Lovegood’s house, they have a Dirigible Plum tree in the front. This particular tea base (Bu Lang) and some lovely fruity notes to it that I felt would play well to the plum so I decided to make a sixth tea for Harry Potter month and call it Dirigible Plum since I was making it for release in October. :)

Another of the HP teas! I kind of wish I had picked up the box of them, but I didn’t. Oh well. I like this one; it reminds me of Butiki’s Plum Pudding, I think. It’s not quite the same, and I think I preferred the Butiki one a bit, but it’s good. Slightly spiced plums is what I’m getting.

In other news, I picked up the most adorable cat mug off FB Marketplace tonight. One of those white ones with an animal silhouette and the animal’s tail as the handle. I don’t recall what they are called, but I believe DavidsTea carried them for a while (but not the cat). This was apparently originally from Chapters. It’s in perfect condition, and was $5. I am so pleased, ahaha.
