207 Tasting Notes

Soooo glad I purchased this tea. It is everything I had hoped for. I love the blend of ginger and vanilla with a light note of coconut. Now I really want some Thai coconut curry noodle soup. Too bad I don’t have any curry paste or coconut milk right now. Time to go grocery shopping.

“Green Tea with Thai Flavors”? What a name!! Hahahahaha :)

gmathis

Is the soup recipe online somewhere?

ashmanra

Is this the tea that is sold under the name Bangkok as a loose tea? I think it is.

Alphakitty

Yeah, this is the same tea as Bangkok. They used to sell it bagged under that name too (I have a pile of empty tins!) but for mass market appeal they changed it.

Em

gmathis, here’s the recipe: http://chefmichaelsmith.com/recipe/thai-coconut-curry-soup/. It is so delicious. I leave off the fish sauce and lemongrass.

Good to know that Bangkok is the same. I figured it was.

gmathis

Thanks. That looks easy enough for me to handle!

Nicole

Ooo… that soup must be tried.

Very impressed with this tea. It was one of the many teas LiberTEAS sent me in my Christmas package. The rose and black tea are balanced very well. The black base is a delicious malty black that I’m totally digging. This is hitting the spot this evening.

I love Earl Grey and this is my first cream. I like the addition of vanilla in the flavors. It’s very smooth and bergamot-y.

I like the suggestion of making a London Fog. I may have to try that next. It is crazy foggy here, so it would be fitting.

Just realized that it has been a long time since I’ve had a rooibos tea in the evening. Tonight’s the night :)

This tea is so delicious. Creamy lemon yum. My favorite way to drink rooibos is with milk and honey.

Catching up on Tivo from the week and enjoying a good cuppa. Great way to finish the weekend :)

Finally, a lazy Sunday afternoon. Long week.

This tea is delightful. I get fruity and honey notes with each sip. There’s also a bit of smokiness to it.

Time for a second steep :)

I love Upton and Oolongs, so I’ll have to give this a try. Sounds good!

Spicy sweet sipdown. My only sipdown for this Saturday since it was such a busy day.

Spicy vanilla deliciousness. Sadly, I can’t taste the ginger because the cinnamon overtakes it. This tea is quite sweet without adding any sweeteners. I may add a bit of milk to make it more decadent. I could use that this evening. Feeling quite exhausted. Is 8 pm too early to go to sleep?!?

This is hitting the spot this morning. I’m leading a Confirmation retreat with 7 kids today. I’ll be away from my tea stash all day. This was the tea I chose to bring with me for the day. So glad I did. Green teas, oolongs, and pu-erhs are quickly becoming my go to teas. I used to only drink black teas :)

Okay, time to start thinking about prevenient grace and the Wesleyan Quadrilateral :)

gmathis

What ages? (Sorry, I’m a little rusty on my Wesleyanism :)

ashmanra

If you are any good with similar quadrilaterals around a point of dilation, we could use some help with our last geometry assignment…

Em

gmathis – We have 7 Confirmands this year. 7th-9th graders :) They are a hoot.

ashmanra – Different kind of quadrilateral ;)

gmathis

You are a brave woman. Once they turn into 6th graders, I throw ’em out!

Generally my favorite teas tend to be oolong, black, or green.

My tea ratings reflect my feelings about the tea. That’s just how I roll.
