2815 Tasting Notes
Tea of my morning!
You know, I’m not entirely sure why I bought this. Apricots, in any form, are not really my favorite. I don’t hate them, but if given options, it would be highly unusual for me to pick something apricot.
But every once in a while, apparently, I see something apricot and I am interested.
I picked this up the last time I was in the Tea Cozy shop (which is such a lovely shop, run by lovely people!), and I surprised myself by requesting some of this.
I don’t regret buying this, but it’s not destined to become a favorite or a cupboard staple, but there is nothing wrong with it.
I find it actually more buttery than apricot-y, a bit less fresh on the palate than I expected, but not unpleasant at all.
The weather is getting warmer, so I stocked up, and then promptly drank all of, some fruity black teas. Now I’ll need to restock!
I’m not 100% sure that I’ll restock this in the next tea order, but I do like it. The trouble is I have fruity blends from Harney that I like better (Tower of London, Paris, Capri…)
But it still has a nice balance of flavors, and I enjoyed this tin.
I never can entirely make up my mind about this one, but as it’s made it into my cupboard more than once, I feel like I should just admit it has it’s place with me.
A friend made me a bunch of dehydrated citrus slices, especially for putting into tea, so I tried one here. It was just a little too tarte, so the lemon slices will be saved for something else.
So, apparently, when my world is full of stress, I stop logging. I don’t stop drinking tea, of course, but I’ve been an absentee Steepster member.
Well, Evol Ving Ness posted a kind word, and summoned me back from beyond the veil. It was just the invitation I needed.
I had a tin of this that I’ve been drinking all week, and today was the last cup of this particular tin.
Oh, I am so happy to be back! I have to do a serious update on the cupboard, and I"m ready to write so many more notes!
I’ve missed you all.
This was a perfectly lovely black apple tea. I brewed it a touch too weak for my last cup (my down darn fault), but it was still sweet and apple-y and nice.
As I am in the mood for all the apple teas right now, this was well recieved.
I should be getting my next yarn and tea club shipment soon! I cannot wait to see it!
I must have had this before…. yes? But Steepster is not forthcoming with previous tasting notes, so maybe not? It seems impossible that I have not, but here we are!
This is like a version of hot cinnamon spice that is a touch more mellow. I like it, but can’t say I have a whole lot of the apple flavor. But not that I say that, I do get a very strong sense of apple cider-ness.
In any case, so far, so good!
