366 Tasting Notes
It’s a little cold this morning so I thought I’d try this one. I bought it from Shadowfall’s sale. It smelled yummy and tastes good. I don’t get graham cracker and marshmallow but the chocolate tastes good. Not one that I’m gonna buy later though. My sister bought dill herb dip and the smell is permeating the house! so I’m nose deep in my cup inhaling the good smells. Not that I don’t like dill but the constant smell is irritating, don’t like herby smells that much.
Soooo…. it tastes good. I get that oolong sort of taste from it. I wish my taste buds were better because I don’t really get all the tastes like grape or whatnot. It’s good though. Ah, Happy Easter! Tea and chocolate bunnies :). I did 2 steeps, I don’t know how people do more I just can’t drink that much.
Ahhhh… Good. I love this right now. The roasted barley taste is really yummy. I saw some reviews on how it tastes like honey smackers and thought yeah! That’s it! I’m happy this was the first tea I tried from the free steepster select box I got. Don’t know if I can afford to keep the subscription going but if I like the other tea samples as much, I think I’m in trouble :)
Why is the weather so weird lately? Took a nap and when I woke up for dinner…. sssoooo cccold. So I had this tea with dinner. It’s nice and warm :) the caramel toffee taste is tasty. I don’t think I like it enough that I’d have bought a whole tin of it. It’s good that I got it from my amoda tea box so it’s more sample size.
Thanks Tea at Sea for the sample of this! I like it as it’s a pleasant green tea. It has a very green taste but in a way that I like, not in a grassy way. It is mild, or maybe 3 minutes is not long enough but I liked it that way. I can’t believe the weekend is over already :( it’s the most time I get to enjoy doing nothing…
My kickstarter iced teas finally came in! It feels like so long, I was going to cave and just order some from the website since it seems that’d be faster but here they have arrived! I picked this one out of all of them because – c’mon just look at the name… It sounds awesome, I would order it for dessert absolutely. Unfortunately maybe it just was not possible to live up that. It does taste really good but I’m not getting a whole lot that reminds me of a pumpkin pie crepe with vanilla bean ice cream. I think I’m getting mostly chocolate taste. There’s a little bit that could be the pumpkin and vanilla but if I didn’t know what it was meant to be I don’t know that I would have it figured out. Regardless it’s a tasty tea and I’m glad I got 2 bags of it and can resteep it one more time.
So from the 3 teas I bought samples from Shan Valley Tea, this one is not so bad. Kind of faint praise, but I guess their teas are just not to my taste. This one had a very slight roasted taste so it wasn’t so green and seaweed like as the other green sample but that totally came out more when I had let it sit and cool. I really wanted to like these teas but oh well, I guess. And I can’t be too unhappy, it was cheap to try them.
