716 Tasting Notes
I love the scent of vanilla coming off this one! Smells so comforting. I can taste the vanilla too. Really well done and not overwhelming. Anything that diminishes the bergamot is awesome for me. I’m slowly finding more and more variations of Earl Grey to enjoy.
This one is smooth. I think I’ll be keeping it around.
I love the smell of strawberry here. Although it’s more strawberry candy smell then genuine strawberries. But it’s helping drown out the bergamot, which I’m not too fond of.
Yes! I’m enjoying this one. I may add a touch of agave and see what happens but I’m liking it as is too :) Finally a variation of Earl Grey I can drink and enjoy :)
This one wasn’t on my list today, but it sat on the counter staring at me until I finally gave in and asked for 10g.
My fiance has been matching me for cups of tea today, so I get to hear his input on everything I’m trying as well. Lovely, lovely. He actually enjoys tea a lot but doesn’t drink it nearly as much as I do. A nice change of pace today.
It smells almost peppery? Is that right? Perhaps that’s the lemongrass. I don’t think I’m really enjoying this one too much. I have enough for another round so I’ll have to try it iced.
Smells so good! Almost creamy. I’m excited for this one. I got the Tung Ting Vietnam because they were out of this last week and ended up loving it. I was over the moon they had this one today.
Also, I wrapped up a mango pit in a wet paper towel a few days ago and it’s sprouting – yay!
I am really enjoying these plain oolongs much more so than the flavoured ones. This is another hit. I can see myself keeping this one around. Perhaps this or Tung Ting Vietnam. Whichever they have in stock at the time :)
Oh yes. Anything I can smell summer in automatically has an advantage. I know that’s probably not right, but what can I say? I live for summer.
This is another I got from our “tea party” on Friday. I’m already excited for next Friday haha.
Yum, yum. I’m off to breakfast and I’ll finish this cup on the way. I’ll add more on the taste when I’m back!
So I work Friday nights, every week, for 4 hours. Just me, my manager, and a yoga teacher. So we decided to start something new. Tea parties!
Yep, last night we brought in some of our favs, a teapot and some bubble teacups. And drank tea all night :) Ah yes. So I swapped some teas with her and came home with this Kusmi blend. I’ve been so excited to try Kusmi!
Ooh I’m enjoying it! On first scent it smelled like a fancy Earl Grey but despite my un-fondness of Earl Grey this one’s yummy. It’s not overwhelmingly bergamot-y.
And she gave me the rest of her tin of this – so a pretty tin and a yummy tea! I’m so lucky! Good day :)
Update February 22/13: Having this one this morning before my day begins. This is my first cup of black tea in a while. Yum! But that’s my last cup of this one, does that mean sipdown? Now I just need to find some Prince Vladimir.
Thanks to kimlovestea for this one! (BTW can anyone let me know how to “tag” someone when I’m thanking them? You know, when their usename is bolded?)
Oh yum. Man I love me some breakfast tea. And this one is no exception. Really good, especially for a bagged tea.
Thanks again kimlovestea!
Him: “When you make tea, could you make me a surprise tea from your collection?”
Me: “What makes you think I’m having tea?”
Him: “Let’s be real. Don’t act like you won’t have at least 3 more cups tonight.”
This one’s delicious. Light, oh so smooth, and cantaloupe-y. I may have to place on order for Butiki Teas now! Has anyone tried Watermelon Xylophone? I’m thinking I may have to order that one as well.
