678 Tasting Notes
At first glance this reminded me of David’s Love Tea #7 which I didn’t care for because I don’t like fruit in chocolate. However, now that it’s steeped, the scent is quite sweet smelling.
I’m getting quite a bit of marshmallow and caramel. It’s somewhat reminding me of Kusmi’s St. Petersburg, but much sweeter. I can taste the slightest hint of chocolate in the background. This one is pretty good, but I certainly couldn’t drink it on a regular basis. Too sweet for me.
Thanks jessiwrites for this sample :)
This one is quite lovely. A very creamy, buttery oolong.
Now I’m enjoying the second steep of this treasure while contemplating whether I should study of watch Skyfall. Hmm. Daniel Craig does make a compelling case.
Third steep, still delicious.
I added some unsweetened shredded coconut to this today. I love, love, love coconut and I wanted to see how it would taste with a straight white base.
Oh yes. I’m really enjoying it. All coconut.
Update March 5/13: Having this lovely mix again. Man I love coconut. I’ll have to keep this tea on hand just to have a coconut white à la Courtney. Perhaps I should try it with David’s White Peony and save myself some money if that tastes just as delish.
So apparently I’ve been drinking LIME not LEMON the entire time. Gah.
Alright Lime Chiffon, let’s hope you are the rooibos that stays.
Well I can barely smell the rooibos – off to a great start! The lime is perfect in this blend. Not too too much but also not overpowering. I’m excited for the second steep of this.
Thank you jessiwrites for another awesome sample!
Whoa. The scent of cinnamon nearly blew me away when I opened up this treasure.
Lately everything with a ton of cinnamon just smells like cinnamon hearts to me. Not that I’m complaining, they’re delicious. Just making an observation.
This one’s quite lovely. Leaves a nice heat from the cinnamon.
Thanks to jessiwrites for all the Della Terra samples you sent my way :)
Thus far Della Terra hasn’t been too exceptional to me. The teas are good, but nothing amazing. I’m hoping this one will be amazing since I love coconut.
Mmm. This one has a flavour I wasn’t expecting. It’s reminding me of Lucky Charms. That’s always good though!
Now I shall enjoy a toasted open-face cucumber sandwich with my Lucky Charms tea while I read yet another psych journal article.
Update: Resteep is alright, definitely less flavourful.
Well I got absolutely nothing done over reading break. Not a single thing. And I had a rough night for sleeping last night so I feel like a zombie this lovely Monday morning.
Guayusa to the rescue. So now I’m sitting in my morning biology lecture, which I normally love, sipping my guayusa, as I watch the clock until I go home again.
I found a neat recipe for sweet coconut guayusa that I will try later on as well. I’ll update to let you know how it goes :)
Update: I tried out the sweet coconut guayusa recipe and it was pretty tasty but the scent of it really turned me off. I find it difficult difficult when I’m sipping away at something and the scent is right there in my face.
Here’s the recipe if anyone else would like to try: http://www.guayusatea.com/preparation/
Ahh so happy I finally scored a tin of this. It’s been essentially the only tea I’ve been drinking for a week. Last night I actually added a bit if pineapple juice to it. Delish!
This morning I’m having a resteep as I read psych journal articles. Bleh for the articles. Yay for the tea.
