Latte Sipdown (283)
I have finally filled the TTB as much as I intend to and have divided up the Sil samples for me and Roswell Strange. That means the box is ready to go to Ros. And since that is ready, the other packages I have been filling were all to get closed off too so my brother-in-law could make one big run to the post office.
One of those packages is for one of my best friends who loves lavender earl greys. I intended to pull this sample out to make as a latte and send the rest off to her. However, my latte used the whole sample so this is actually my first empty of April – yay!!
This is fine. The lavender, as per usual, is not my favorite. It’s soapy but not overwhelming like it was in Cocoa Lavender Latte. However, its enough that I don’t really want this again. The bergamot doesn’t do much to improve it for me but that is because I am picky with my earl greys anyways. Basically this had a lot working against it when it comes to my personal tastes. What it had that was appealing was the tea cake aspect and I am not getting much cake. Like I said, it’s fine. It’s not for me though. Now I feel bad not just passing this on since my friend likely would have appreciated it more.
