596 Tasting Notes
This tea is tasty. I’ve been lucking out with all these new teas I’ve been trying. This one is chocolate-y with a hint of vanilla and a nice black base. I wouldn’t say it’s anything special, but it is good.
It doesn’t really taste like an oreo, but I feel that could be a user error, since I don’t like adding milk to my teas.
Thanks Roswell Strange!
Having this delightful treat that I received from a swap with KittyLovesTea. The envelope took 2 months to arrive because it was missent to Australia. How I wish I was in Australia.
I’ve had this one before and I do enjoy it. I might actually pick some up if it comes back out this fall. I don’t often find Della Terra’s I enjoy enough to order, and it’s nice to be able to order some from them because they have such great prices.
We’re watching the second LotR now, while I also write a paper. Not so conducive to the best paper writing, but so be it.
I cold brewed this one for six hours last night. I should’ve done it for more but it was six or fourteen type thing – and I didn’t want to risk overdoing it. OMGsrsly suggested condensed milk, but I really, really do not like milk in my tea so I just opted for cold brewed. The maple flavour is still lovely and apparent. Maybe one day I will get over my milk in tea thing, but for now I love this tea hot.
I can’t wait to pick up more! Under three weeks now!
Thanks again OMGsrsly!
Another sample from Roswell Strange!
Well hello hibiscus. It’s been a while. I can’t recall when I last had a hibiscus-laden tea. Sometimes I don’t find hibiscus all that bad, and tonight is one of those times. It’s certainly tart, but it wouldn’t say this one is bad. In the right mood, I could see having more of this. I have a feeling it would be decent cold. I don’t know if I can truly taste anything beneath the hibiscus, but there is is.
Thanks Roswell Strange!
My swap arrived from Roswell Strange! Just as I was thinking I had my samples under control. And I just placed my Butiki order, along with two others over the weekend. Teas galore it will be.
This is a tasty tea. It’s fairly straightforward in that what it says, it is. A fairly sweet black tea, a great treat. I love the mini marshmallows. It’s sweetly vanilla and caramel/chocolatey with that marshmallow goodness. I would enjoy a sample of this every now and then, but I don’t think it’s necessarily something I need in my cupboard. Though J is getting low on Lemon Chiffon and I need to place a Della Terra order stat so he doesn’t run out completely.
Thanks Roswell Strange!
This tea came my way from OMGsrsly. She was awesome and sent a ton of samples from Steam. Now I’m sipping away at BC teas since we have finalized the dates we’ll be visiting, and I need to get my list down for what I need to pick up.
This one smells great! I will share my cup with J too, since he loved Teaopia’s Dragonheart, and the only other note here says it’s similar.
Generally greens don’t do it for me, with very few exceptions. The fruitiness in this one is delightful. It’s somewhat reminiscent of H&S Tropical Green, which I’ve been meaning to get more of. There is a subtle buttery-ness to the green base, but it’s very minimal. The fruit flavours aren’t overwhelming, in fact they’re also subtle. The scent is stronger than the flavours. I’m not getting any mint, but it may be because I just had cold noodle salad. I think I would consider picking some of this up.
This one came in the surprise package from Dexter3657.
The flavours and base are great together, which comes as no surprise, with any French tea. They do know their tea mixes. The overall taste is reminiscent of another tea I’ve had, but I can’t remember which one. I do prefer the fruit flavours here to the “red fruits” I see in so many French teas, and this is a tasty cup, but I don’t think this one needs to be in my cupboard.
I’ve begun my Butiki cart now, though I have to wait for Hello Sweetie and the new Lemon tea to be back in stock, hopefully this week. I need to get some sipdowns done stat because I have two other small orders on the way now too.
I usually adore this tea, but the last couple cups have been sub-par. I’ve been rushing them. Tonight is much better. Back to the normal tastiness I enjoy.
I’m procrastinating and putting off the copious amount of schoolwork I have to do, which means I’ll have to work even harder tomorrow, but I have zero motivation tonight.
Having this delight for breaky, along with fresh papaya and bananas, and coconut pineapple breakfast loaf. YUM.
I just checked the Verdant website, and they finally have Vanilla Citrus Spice back in stock, but not Laoshan Black. Le sigh. I refuse to order one without the other and pay shipping twice. I will try to be patient.
I’ve finally decided what coffee grinder (gasp, coffee!) I’m going to get, and as soon as I’ve showered I’m going to pick it up. I brought back 4 lbs. of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee beans and I can’t wait to enjoy some and share with J. The more I read up on this coffee, the more I realize I should’ve brought more back – looks like it’s the world’s best coffee, and I believe it.
