2198 Tasting Notes
:( Now I’m sick! I could have sworn that people couldn’t be infected through the internet! (Actually, I’m blaming my brother.)
This is delightful, and my throat isn’t sore enough yet for the acid to hurt it yet. Yay! Next up I’m having a hot honey and lemon. When it hurts to breathe and swallow, the honey definitely makes its way back into my food repertoire.
Tea of my heart, you are so tasty.
I love this. The jasmine and frankincense are amazing together. The super floral oolong is just amazing with it. I definitely get how people can say oolongs can taste like lilacs – no doubt that is enhanced by the jasmine. I keep thinking I should drink what I have, but then I never do because the idea that I need to wait and save it for something special overpowers. Hah. That’s ridiculous.
So I’m enjoying it now. I hope the incense is easier to get out of the glass steeper than it is the metal ones…
I kinda like this one. It would be (much) better without the coriander, but the toasted rice kind of overpowers it while hot. I LOVE the toasted rice Verdant uses. So strong and toasty. :D
The Oolong is super duper floral. The floral is coming through the toasted rice, soap, and cinnamon. And sadly as it cools, the coriander is getting soapier. This would be SO good without the excess amount of coriander. Just a little would be fine, but in my bag it looks like at least 1/3 of it is coriander seeds.
Another tea I’m glad I’ve tried, but will probably be relegated to the swap pile. Between the coriander and the mint, I wasn’t super happy with the Blends Club. There are some Verdant blends that I like that I will probably purchase again soon (Sweet Cinnamon Pu’er!), and one I LOVE but just haven’t had the time to sit down and do justice (Earl of Anxi).
Having this again at my parents. They have hid all their full bags of tea so we’re drinking up leftovers. Heh. Normally they have ~20-25 varieties of black tea to choose from, but I only see 7. Boo!
Oh well. It’s a nice strong delicious tea. I’m having it with almond milk because I steeped it for 3 min and the tannins were a little strong. Mmm.
Instead of waking me up like usual they let me sleep in. So I’ve made my breakfast and some tea, and as soon as I’m done we’re gearing up for a walk in the mud and ridiculous pouring rain.
Had a bag of this on the ferry today. A bag I brought myself. :) The ferry only has Lipton, which I didn’t want to deal with.
I really enjoyed this! Loads of lemony herbal green flavours, a nice kick of caffeine, really easy to make. Definitely something I will have if I’m out and Numi teas are the only thing available.
Gave this to my parents today and made a pot for the family to share. It was quite tasty. It says 2 tsp per cup, but I used 4 tsp for a 3 mug tea pot, and it was good. Steeped twice. Left the second steep for about 20 minutes before I finished it, even. Still good.
I prefer teavivre’s keemuns, but this is pretty darn tasty! Mom likes it too. :)
Hot damn. I love this.
That is something I never thought I’d say about a mint tea.
But this is superb.
I get mint-chocolate, with lavender. It smells in the order of chocolate-lavender-mint, though. The mint is SO fresh. I definitely have different taste buds from MissB, and I do love lavender.
