1481 Tasting Notes
A giant mug, with honey.
I tried to go to bed about 7:30 this evening, but ended up getting up about 9:30 because I couldn’t get to sleep. So tired, but no sleeping. Boo!
So now it’s midnight and I’m still up. Hopefully sipping on this delicious herbal will help kickstart the sleepiness. I have flux on my computer, so there is no blue light in my eyes keeping me awake. :)
This tea is delicious, sweet and fruity and medicinal all at once. I like it so much! Definitely something I need to keep stocked, especially since the price is so reasonable. (My other favourite hot herbal is Verdant’s Ginger Sage Winter Spa Blend. It’s on the opposite of the reasonable spectrum, but SO amazing in the winter or when I’m feeling under the weather.)
Flavors: Berry, Medicinal, Sweet
Oh this is really nice! So glad I grabbed some from the bag I got for Bear with Me. :)
Really gentle, almost candy-like grapefruit. Nice white tea that didn’t go bitter. I added a couple tiny pieces of rock sugar to my mug, so that might have something to do with the “candy”, but IDK. This is a really nice white tea.
Tempted to cold steep the used leaves, but overnight is too long I think. I’ll keep them and see if I manage to cold steep tomorrow. The leaves still smell fantastic, so I think I’d get another cup. :)
(2 heaping tsp, 14 oz water, 160F, 3 minutes, 2 pieces rock sugar.)
Flavors: Candy, Citrus, Floral, Grapefruit
Cold brewed overnight. I only had one packet, but used it to make 1L of iced tea. It was mostly tart hibiscus with a hint of blueberry this morning. Good, but not delicious. I think I’ll stick with Juicy Blueberry from Zen Tea as my blueberry herbal tea. Oh, or the Blueberry Rooibos from SOKO.
One mug left!
Kinda sad to see it go, because I do really like this tea, but after this cup I’m not too sad. You see, it’s starting to taste a little chemical to me. :(
Oh well. Right now it’s still delicious citrus/berry/herbal stuff, even though I can taste the flavouring!
(Made strong and poured over ice to make 16+ oz.)
Cold steeped overnight!
Mostly because this is starting to reach the end of its delicious lifespan and I have a lot I still need to drink (well, a lot for a green tea). Since I keep forgetting to have it hot, I thought I’d try it this way. And it turned out pretty well! Just steeped about 8 hours, 2 tsp in 8oz.
It’s mostly just buttery straight out of the fridge, but as it warms up the flavours emerge. Mostly strawberry with a hint of ginger, and more butter. So tasty! This is seriously one of my favourite greens.
Yum yum yum! Since I saw Cavo had this within the last couple days, it inspired me to have some as well.
So good. Toasty roasty chestnuts, with a bit of dryness like you’d get from the peel. Note: NOT bagged chestnuts, but fresh roasted ones like you buy from a stand for a hideous amount of money in the winter.
I really enjoyed this. Yay!
So good. It’s really gentle and root-beer-cream, compared to DavidsTea’s in-your-face root beer and cinnamon.
I’m enjoying it iced tonight. :)
I have so many teas. I know that Dexter just did a cupboard count, and I’m not too far off. So what I did this evening is sort out my puerh and white teas into one container, and my oolongs and greens into another. My black teas are kind of all over, and all my non-caffeinated ones are in yet another container.
Hopefully this organization helps. Hopefully. :)
I also set up 3 teas icing in the fridge. Hopefully one of them is delicious in the morning!
