90 Tasting Notes
Ommmmmg this is YUM. I bought it because I had tried it once and enjoyed it and I like to get the TOTM prepack from DavidsTea. However, I don’t remember it being THIS delicious. It’s sweet and creamy with a hint of spice. This is love.
I tried this when I was at the store (it was the free sample) and I loved it. I bought a 50g bag of it with my latest order, huzzah!
I went through approx 150g of it in the 5 weeks leading up to its release (head office sent me some after we chatted about me needing a show name for Java pony) and in the month it’s been out I’ve had to refill my STUFFED tin twice (i’m on the third stuffing of the tin, and it’s already half gone!!). Too freaking yummy (and Ponypants loves it too, haha)
So, I put two and a bit perfect spoonfuls of this into my steeper. Filled it with water. added some sugar. And set it down on a spoon or something.
After I was done cleaning an entire pot of this off my counter, cleaning my steeper out (it had been long enough that all the naughty things had dissolved and ended up on the counter. A resteep would have been just rooibos. I filled it again, set it down and let it steep. Blended it about 3/5 tea, 2/5 hot vanilla almond milk. AMAZING. Added a sizable lump of brown sugar. (cuz in my house brown sugar comes in rock hard lumps)
I admitted defeat on keeping up with my advent calender fairly early on in the month. I mainly bought it for the little tins anyway. But this, this is great! I’ve had Hot Lips before, late in the summer iced. It was good. THIS IS BETTER. I added a dash of honey and yum yum yum.
apparently i’ve never reviewed this. I hadn’t really tried it until it showed up in my advent calender last week. But I’ve since bought 50 g or so and am enjoying it with honey and vanilla almond milk right now. it’s soooo good.
this tea is just bloody perfect. i just made it at home for the first time after drinking multiple cups at work. I’m going to resteep these leaves all night and clean my apartment. Also, I forgot how heavy it gets. I went to lift my infuser out and dropped it back into the cup! it goes from this little scoop of pebbles to like a basket of wet spinach in like three minutes!
I have had this tea before and loved it, hot and iced. However, a coworker made me this today. It was strong, iced, sweetened (I think with honey?) and had a touch of milk (I think skim)
First of all IT LAYERS guyz it looks so pretty. Second of all OMG it’s a creamsicle. I am buying a tin of this tomorrow and trying it with vanilla almond milk. OOOO or maybe even chocolate?
So there was an incident involving some combination of me knocking the steeper, the bird flying off my head in a tizzy and my yelping. So half of my little tin of it (I hacked my advent calender dude) ended up on the floor.
But i steeped what was left about 2 perfect spoonfuls, in about 8 oz of water for around8 minutes, add a tsp or two of honey, and iced in my noble travel mug. THIS IS DELICIOUS. buying some tomorrow (all I want to drink right now is rooibos
