Sipdown! (9 | 82)

The last Tea Hippie tea from Courtney! I admit, I’m not looking forward to this one, as the base tea in the other two wasn’t great.

Yeah… The base tea here is just so disappointing to me. It’s like a super generic Ceylon with quite a bit of astringency even with a short steep. And honestly I’m not getting much maple at all, perhaps a vague sweetness toward the end?

I added milk and a drizzle of maple syrup to the rest of the pot to finish it off. Somehow it came out tasting a bit like banana, which is odd lol! Happy to be finished with it though.

I decided to order a very small handful of teas from a wee shop a somewhat short drive from us. It was a great reason to get out of the house for a tea curbside pick up! The woman that runs the tea shop was lovely as well and let me know these teas were just blended yesterday (via email, of course)!

This tea is actually nice. I was hoping for it to be a little more maple-forward, but that’s okay. The black base isn’t astringent at all, which is wonderful and there’s a subtle maple at the end of the sip that lingers. The tea also has a subtle scent of buttery maple, which is nice.

How special to have such a shop so close by! And hand-blended yesterday?? Swoon.

It’s very exciting! :)

I am pretending I am not envious.

Being so near a tea shop might be dangerous! :)
