1349 Tasting Notes

Tried some of this last night. I normally like medicinal teas, and can stomach almost anything if it helps me to feel better. Having said that, all I could get out of this was hibiscus. No thanks.

Somehow, I only managed to get a small amount of this in the S&V Black Friday mammoth sale a bunch of us got into together. Initially I was bummed at this thought, then I realized (a) I can always order more, and (b) I have way too much tea as it is. ;)

I only brewed this for 2 minutes, concerned about the black base. I shouldn’t have been, although it’s more delicious to me a bit cooled than hot. Hot, I get caramel and that’s it. Cooled, I get chocolate caramels with a hint of the base. It reminds me a lot of Della Terra’s Salted Caramel and Chocolate, minus the salty notes, and with more of a full, natural taste to it.

I’m at the point where all I’m drinking is tea now, and holding off on food until my stomach settles. This is helping… a little. I just left the bag in to steep indefinitely. It tastes so good though!

drank Chocolate Truffle by Tea Desire

Still tasty, and I can tell it’s the same base as my beloved Caramel Pu-erh from the same company. Really, um, truffle-y, in an earth sort of way. Hoped it would help settle my stomach down.. still working on it.

Mmmmm…

VariaTEA

Haha. You and your caramel pu’erh. Sometimes I feel like you could have that, a few caffeine free options (probably Lemon Meringue and the Candy Cane Rooibos from Simpson and Vail), and nothing else and still be happy.

MissB

Heh. Those are definitely at the top of my list of late. Mind you, I’ve really only been drinking things I know I love these days with my stomach being so off.

drank Mountain Herbs by Tea Desire

This tastes much more.. herbal than anything when oversteeped. Still something sweet and tasty in the brew, however less appealing now than previously. Was hoping it would help kick whatever I’ve got going on in my stomach.

Pu-erh seems to make my tummy feel better. Or, maybe it was just an excuse to have this delicious tea?

It does help! It woks like magic for me. Guess it’s a good enough excuse to drink a wonderful tea :-)

I love pu-erhs when my stomach is upset.

It’s still working for me (when I had this last night, anyway), although it’s still far from what I want it to be, I still find it delicious.

Made this last night again, because it’s just that darn good. Was a lovely treat waiting for me after I got home from hanging with a few friends. Always delicious!

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Just got back from a six month exploration of Western Europe, so I’ve got some pretty lovely tea that we just can’t easily find this side of the pond. Woot!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time exploring, playing board games, reading, hiking, hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, although for some reason the French seem to have figured out how to do this without making me ill. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
