173 Tasting Notes

I have been stuffy since I got home! I have so many new teas to try but I don’t want to miss out on the flavors of them as I can barely smell. I knew I needed something to help me get up and go, this cold is zapping my energy. Black tea it is! I chose this one because I am able to get more easily from The London Tea Room. Last time I had this, I remember not being too sure about it as there are not many black teas I enjoy.

From what I can smell of the leaf, it makes me think I should love it. The first sip makes me think that I underleafed it, it seems watery. With the second and third sip, something is there but not vanilla or currant. Added some sweetener. That’s better. I think the black base is still a bit too strong for someone who usually drifts towards greens but some of the other flavors are coming out to play now. I will finish what I have but I am unsure of restocking. It is a nice cup of something different, just not something every day for me.

Mixing this with chamomile tonight. Getting Gramma into tea! This is her second cup of the night too!

This is an old sample from a swap a while ago. It brews up a sort of golden-yellow. I get a light taste of blueberry with an even lighter taste of the pineapple, very pleasant. This could be very good iced for the summer that seems so far away. It almost cures my sweet tooth tonight.

Mixing this one with some peppermint tonight as I wanted something tasty but that would settle my stomach a bit. I’m sadly not getting a lot of the blueberry. It is proving to be what I needed for my tummy though, thank goodness!

I think my water for this one was too warm. It’s a little bitter. I like how light it is. I’m not a big fan of cherry anything but this is nice. I ended up adding a bit of sweetener to combat the bitterness. I’m not blaming the tea on that quite yet as I have yet to invest in a thermometer.

This one is also bland through the Keurig. I think I am going to start using it for hot water and use the tea ball I brought down. Wish it would have worked out better for the convenience!

This one tastes fine through the Keuring machine, I’m being lazy and not finding a Wal*mart or something to purchase a kettle. This is my oldest tea so it will be my focus for the next couple weeks :) I feel like I could keep this one in stock but also feel that there are other unflavored green teas out there that I need to try.

Last of this one tonight. I am at my Grandparent’s for five weeks. I had to leave the kettle with the boyfriend. Gramma has a Keurig machine so we tried that. Some of the (admittedly tiny) leaf ended up in the cup. It doesn’t have as bold of a flavor that i am used to from this one. It was quite convenient though. It will be fine to use until I can stop somewhere to get a kettle.

I love the pretty pink liquid of this one. I do not love the smell. I don’t care for the taste either. I know I won’t be ordering this one but appreciate the chance to try it out. I think I will even leave the rest of it here for the boyfriend to try.
