939 Tasting Notes

I was craving a cup of just classic earl grey but sadly couldn’t find any. So I saw this and figured I’d try and get a few more teas finished off before the new year.

While this was steeping it smelled just like a Thai tea bag. You know those kits that have the tea and then often comes with a condensed milk packet. This smells like the tea before the condensed milk is added. I used to actually make just the tea and drink it… This was a weird association but I’m still getting it to a lesser extent in the steeped tea. A strange yet pleasant tasting cuppa overall.

Homemade Advent~AJRimmer
Advent Day 1
Advent Days are so much fun that I almost want a relative to create one for me with my tea every month.
I made sure to read a few notes about this one before steeping it. I’m glad I did because Ceylon requires a shorter brew. The base is nice and malty but a bit tannic and the banana flavor is nice and sweet. I do wish the banana was a bit stronger but it’s a nice tea. I have a little bit left and will probably do a comparison with the Curtis Banana Flambe tea. This cup was a nice cross between a breakfast tea and a dessert blend.
*Note to self (try next cup of this tea with milk)

Flavors: banana, Malt, Smooth, Sweet, Tannic, Wood

I’m the same way – I have so much tea, that I want my roommate to make a calendar with tea in it for me to open every morning as a surprise! I love December, so I have someone to do this for me!!!


That’s a great way to handle your overstock. I love that!

I’m so indecisive it seems like a fun idea. (:

Whew! another paper turned in. On a side note, I bought some Lactaid eggnog because I was curious and hadn’t tried that brand before. It was actually really good and very vanilla forward. My plan was to use it for eggnog tea lattes but well…. let’s just say it didn’t last long enough for a tea latte to be made with it.

On to the tea! This sample sachet came with an H&H sale order. I ordered someone a Christmas gift and this was one of the free sachets that were included in my order. I remember trying this one before and really enjoying it. I don’t believe I ever wrote a tasting note on it though.
There’s a lot of turmeric dust and after trying it I realized I added too much water. It’s quite watered down in flavor but tasty. The ingredients list hibiscus but I can’t taste it here at all which is nice. The apple and the turmeric in this blend pair nicely together and make for a nice bedtime cup of tea. I’d consider ordering some of this one as it’s not often that a turmeric ginger blend is so gentle on the ginger. The fruity notes really add something as well without feeling out of place or making it a tart cup of tea.


There’s nothing quite as satisfying as hitting “send” on an assignment, is there?

Well, I feel it is nothing when compared to job assignments! I have to click “send” often too. But I feel you, turning in papers is always a nice feeling.

Lexie Aleah

gmathis- Definitely!
Martin- I’m a perfectionist so papers always take much longer than they need to for me.
