517 Tasting Notes

95

I had a cup of this last night and a cup of this in the morning even though I am just getting around to saying so. Rich and kinda sweet. Not too complex this time which was nice because I didn’t want something ultra complex, but unexpected since I can normally taste two-three different notes. My tongue must not be up to par yet. Too much cocoa. Lol.

Now I get to raid my mom’s Earl Grey because I am out and I want some. I swear the decaf tastes different than the normal one, but that could just be me right now. My tastebuds have been being weird this morning. Even my honey nut cheerios didn’t taste right.

My mom got me some more almond milk as a surprise. Yay. It is the unsweetened kind though so I have to remember that it is a little harsh when I have it plain. But she tries so hard to remember what I like. I love her and I tell her this often.

Awww, that’s sweet of your mom! :)

Apparently I still want this tea. I always develop a taste for it and only it when I am not feeling well. But the good news is that I am feeling better. I have two more days of medicine and then hopefully I will be back to normal (and indulging in some choice oolongs!)

I’m beginning to think you just like this stuff. ;)

Lol. It does grow on you after a while. Especially when you already like the really sweet southern iced teas.

I’m feeling a little big better today. I think I am feeling good enough to actually break out the gunpowder green later today. That’s exciting. I haven’t had a proper cup of loose leaf in a few weeks.

According to Think Geek, this month is National Tea month. I think that is kinda cool and a good excuse to write an actual tea blog post sometime this month.

I’m sick with an ear infection and a cough that won’t stop. So I am all medicated up and under orders to actually rest. Sugared and hot for this tea to help me feel better with a handful of peppermint Hershey kisses.

I decided that it was time for tea. I have been feeling better today which means I have been drinking less water, juice, and tea overall. I still need to drink more liquids though.

This is just what I was looking for. Slightly buttery and a tiny bit fruity at the end of the swallow. Nice and light and refreshing, but I can still taste what it is supposed to taste like.

I forgot to say that I was feeling well enough to drink something that wasn’t sugared last night. My ears popped and I was so relieved that I sat down with a good mug of Earl Grey with milk.

So far, my ears are staying popped and that makes me happier. Now if only I can get my cough to go away.

I have a headcold so I can’t really taste any of my other teas. Staying with this (sweetened), water, and orange juice for a while.

I broke into this one a couple of days ago to drink with my fiance. I brewed it for a minute and then poured out a glass for each of us.

I was expecting this to be overwhelmingly smokey, but this surprised me. There is a little hint of smoke and a slight sharp astringent quality. But there is this nice light sweet taste to it that was just calling to me. The taste is nice and grassy. Almost a little spinachy. It just tastes green.

I brewed another steep today for about a minute and a half and added sugar. Oh my! This is going to replace my hot chocolate cravings for a while with that extra sugar. It brings out the natural sweetness of the tea and the smoke takes on an extra quality to it. It reminds me of fresh vegetables. I bet this would be wonderful brewed up, sweetened, and then iced. Yum.

Ok, this is going to be the last time I am going to steal one of mom’s teabags. But I’m helping her with her new smartphone so she said that I can raid her Earl Grey stash when my french press is dirty.

Hot with milk after a nice hot shower.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
