732 Tasting Notes
Making this for the drive to school. Always a lovely cuppa.
But the spring collection is online now! If I didn’t have a biology lab this morning I’d be at David’s picking up all the new teas and a purple elephant mug! But I shall be there this afternoon. I’m so excited for the new teas. Especially Coconut Oolong. And some purple elephants to match my blue birds.
Well this is the last of my little stash of Cantaloupe & Cream until my Butiki order gets here. Ahh!
This tea is so delicious, just perfection :) I’m so excited to try all the new ones I’ve ordered, especially Watermelon Xylophone.
Update March 14/13: Now that I have a fresh stash of this lovely I brewed some up yesterday for my drive and it was divine. No surprise there. I put those leaves to cold-brew overnight and the result is very tasty and refreshing. Overall, I think I prefer it hot but I wouldn’t say no to a chilled cup on a hot day.
Mmm this one smells like caramel apple or oatmeal cookies (so says the fiance).
This one is actually quite good, which I wasn’t expecting. I don’t know why it’s called Movie Night since it no way does it remind me of movies or popcorn. It’s like an unsweetened apple caramel sweet.
Thanks jessiwrites for yet another awesome one!
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.
