An Ode to Tea challenge – V

I honestly believed this would be a sipdown when I scooped it out of the package.  Nope, next time.  It was a perfect tea for a cloudy, blustery day anyway.  I guess I never realized a “london fog” requires milk which I never tried.  So I tried it.  Must have added too much milk, as then I was only tasting milk and this is actually a stronger tea for the milk to take it over. I prefer it without milk – strong lavender and bergamot.

A London Fog is essentially just a latte made with Earl Grey, and usually vanilla syrup.

Ah ok, maybe this is why this blend is supposed to have vanilla flavor (I don’t taste it.)

I make my London Fogs just using vanilla almond milk, sooo tasty!

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
