1155 tasting notes

I’m house/dog sitting for my parents for the next week while they holiday in Whitby so that leaves me to finish some tea samples. I packed a large bag of random samples and it’s hopefully enough to last me a week. If not I will be popping home anyway to make my jewellery that has sold so I can always pick up more.

Plus I have an announcement to make which may not be huge to most of you but it’s big for me … at the grand old age of 25 I have finally sent off for my provisional driving license. I have never had any interest to drive and always put myself down saying that I could never learn but I decided to go for it anyway. Ideally I want a scooter (despite my mum saying they are dangerous and is even willing to buy me a brand new car) so I’m working towards it. :)

Right now down to the tea. Not a Tazo fan in honesty but I’m always willing to give their teas a try. The teabag has a lemon, spearmint scent that is not completely fresh but zesty enough to still be pleasing. The blend looks very finely chopped.

Once steeped this tea is gold in colour with a strong minty scent. Flavour is thick and sweet with both the lemon verbena and the spearmint being the two dominant flavours. They match quite well, better than I thought they would. It tastes fresher than it smells and it’s on the stronger side of mint teas that I have tried, especially for pre bagged.

The green tea is in the background but a little green astringency is noticeable. Also a little dry. I’m impressed, it’s not the worst mint tea I have had but is something I would drink again.

I was also 25 when I got my liocense. I was pulled over by the police the day I got them. I pulled over in front of a doofus who was driving in my blind spot. Just got a warning but I learned very quickly others don’t think behind the wheel, so I had better. Best of luck!

It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one that left it late. I’m counting down the estimated two weeks until I receive my provisional :) Then the hard part begins and I need to do the CBT.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
