Ever had that kind of day that you just couldn’t wait to get home to make yourself a cuppa and veg? That is the sort of day I have been having all week. I am ready to pop my feet up and watch some Big Bang Theory, Elementary or Daredevil with my boyfriend.
One of my favorite rituals that my boyfriend and I do is that each night I make up a pot of tea for us to enjoy while we watch our shows. He isn’t picky. I always ask him what he wants and he always tells me to pick something good. So tonight, I went the easy way out and threw 3 teabags into my Breville and hit the green tea option. About 3 minutes later I was filling our mugs.
I like this one for a bagged tea. The green tea flavor is first and foremost. It isn’t the best green tea I’ve ever had but it is decent. It seems to have a more grassy green tea flavor profile versus the rich buttery flavor I usually enjoy. The chamomile and lemongrass are lightly there and the spearmint is the last flavor I’m coming across. All in all it is good. I can’t say that I will always need to have this on hand but when I come across it at the store I will probably grab a box or two.
All my boyfriend said about this one was that it tasted like Wrigley gum. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or bad.
This is just an easy tea to make after a rough day where you don’t have the energy to make a proper pot. And now its time to relax and watch Elementary.
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
