514 Tasting Notes
Home from work!
Today I brought this one with me – it was SO good paired with my spicy pad thai from Thai express! Quenching, delicate but full of flavour – and man did I EVER get a kick out of today’s 3rd day of Christmas from LiberTEAS!!! Made my DAY! I’m still smiling :D
So I added this horrible listing to the database! Feel free to give it a good ol college edit to clean it up haha!
I have to say, I had an awesome time mixing up this deliciousness this morning. Light and sweet, super creamy as an iced latte – what an awesome 2nd day of Christmas!
Another package made with incredible love and care! Thanks Azz~!
What an amazing way to start off the countdown! Thank you SO much Autumn – it’s delicious. The smell pretty much drove me crazy when I opened it this morning… then went to work and didn’t come home to drink it until almost midnight!
Delicious! The packaging, the gorgeous note, the tender care and love – perfection. Gave me tingles!
Picked up a little $1 bag when I was pursuing the giant Perfect Mugs (on my Kissmas list ;) ).
I found the flavour to be very mild, almost too mild for me. I didn’t find it bitter, but it was a bit salty and slightly vegetal in the way nori seaweed can be, but not enough of that delicious seaweed flavour that I crave.
Just not enough! I think maybe the sample pack was a teeny bit too small for the mug I used. Either way I probably won’t go back for this one – it made me crave gyokuro and I KNOW that will cure my flavour blues :D
Another from the travelling tea box!
I used 2 perfect teaspoons in my Travel Mug and we took it to Point Pleasant park and admired the chipmunks and big fat bluejays. It’s blizzarding where I used to live.. it’s plus 18 here today. WHOOP!
This was a great fall companion tea! The two most prominent flavours I got were sweet apple and cinnamon – it was followed by a caramel and candy taste and something a bit floral, which put me off a bit- and it was almost a bit too sweet for me! There was something strange in the aftertaste, it reminded me a stevia, but I know there is no stevia in the blend. Maybe an aftertaste from the sugar crystals? Either way it was a bit cloying.
Anyways, that’s minor, it was still a yummy blend! Not one I would purchase for myself, but one I was very happy to try!
Travelling tea box!
How fun! I wish I could join the next one but funds just aren’t on my side lately, however, after taking part in one I can truly say that it is an AMAZING experience – not to be missed! ee!
I think I should have used more leaf for more flavour, however the small amount of flavour I did get was yummy! The marshmallows were perfect, and I love the balance of chocolate and graham. Sadly it was a bit watery (should have read the reviews first) – but I now know why this is a Teaopia tea to be missed!
I only have just over a teaspoon left, so I’ll mix it with Della Terra Smores tea because they will mix poifectly! :D
Another from the travelling tea box! When I see a black pearl, I have to go for it!
This is the strangest Black Pearl I’ve had (I’ve tried 3-4 from different companies). I found this one quite gritty, lots of sediment at the bottom of my cup, and it definitely tasted more like a mild puer than a black tea. Interesting!
No notes really popped out at me except for earthy or sort of like fresh dirt. I was pining for a sweetness or smokiness that never really came – didn’t get any floral. (I used 3 pearls for one small mug). The resteep didn’t impress me too much so I didn’t go for a third.
That said I was very happy to try! I think I’ll stick with the Jasmine Black Pearl from DT and Black Dragon from Teavivre for my pearly needs, but thanks travelling box!
