714 Tasting Notes
KittyLovesTea sent me an ounce of this and I’m not down to one cup left (after this one). I’m not sure what happened, but I love this tea. I’m generally not a huge Della Terra fan, but this one I must have more of. I even commented on their Facebook to inquire when it would be back.
I’m not sure how exactly to describe this. It’s more of a candy-like pumpkin tea, but not artificial at all, or it never would have worked for me. It is delightful.
I made another cold matcha and waited for the right moment to finally crack this bad boy open. I have been craving watching Skyfall for the last few hours, but instead I’ve been diligently working on my conservation cue cards. This is my treat.
It’s very similar to Peanut Butter, but for some reason my mind has decided I’m actually enjoying this one. Maybe because it’s delicate? I feel the Peanut Butter may have been distinctive (note go back and check). Either way, I’ll be ordering more of this in the future.
Also, in less than a week now (by a few hours), we will be in Vancouver! I think I have my list of teas to pick up complete.
I didn’t look this one up on Steepster before I brewed it, and it was quite a shock when it smelled of pu’erh once steeped.
Well, well. I was a little wary, but I let it cool as I wrote out more cue cards for conservation. I finally braved taking a sip, and it’s not so scary. The scent is far more pu’erh-y than the taste. The taste has a nice chocolate profile with the unmistakable, but not overwhelming pu’erh base.
Thanks for the surprise VariaTEA!
Well, this one is a bit bizarre. Added to this is that this is my first matcha soda and I’m not a fan of carbonation, but besides that it is just weird.
Is that licorice? It’s reminiscent of cola, but also not. I don’t really know what to say about this one.
Thanks for the sample VariaTEA! Yet another matcha flavour down.
I’m also happy I have a cup of Dolce Vita steeping away haha.
Having this delightful tea as the first cup of the day. I’m nearly done this paper, then it’ll be on to studying for my two hardest exams, but also my two favourite classes.
It seems I’ve finally perfected steeping this to my liking. I can drink it a bit more often now that I’ve managed to decrease a touch of the syrup-ness.
Mmm. I put 1/2 tsp. of this in a mason jar of milk and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. I spent a significant portion of the afternoon intensively researching wellies, which means I’ve now decided it’s time to get this paper done. This was just the tasty kickstart I needed.
This one is working much better for me than did Peanut Butter. It has a similar taste, but the addition of “Pie” on the end here makes it more acceptable to me. It’s funny how the mind works. I am thoroughly enjoying this now, but I’ll have to do a more detailed note later.
Thanks VariaTEA for adding this one into our matcha order. Excellent choice!
VariaTEA was awesome, and along with our joint matcha order, she sent a ton of matcha samples my way. :)
This one I did my standard way, mixed with cold milk and allowed to sit in the fridge a few hours. I’m not really getting anything distinctly toffee-like, but it does make a nice creamy milky drink at least. Nothing special for me here, but always grateful to be able to try matcha flavours without buying them myself.
I’ve been searching up wellies for a significant portion of the afternoon (you know, because it’s not as though I have exams to study for), and I think I’ve finally narrowed it down a couple styles. What do you guys have for wellies?
