2167 Tasting Notes

YES. Now this is what I’m talking about when I say ginger tea.

Incredibly sweet, nice and gingery.

This will be perfect for camping. I might even be persuaded to share some with my brother.

Okay, now you’ve motivated me to give this another try. I have some envelopes in my cupboard…

TeaBrat

i used to have these, they are good from what I remember

OMGsrsly

It is incredibly sweet, but I don’t mind. :) Lots of ginger!

Yes, this is weird. Maybe I’ll bake with the rest of it…

(1 tsp matcha, 1/2 tsp sugar, unsweetened almond milk, water to whisk it up in.)

I always wonder about these flavored matchas… To me, it sounds like some form of sacrilege! ;-)

MissB

Some of them really are quite amazing. Others… :(

OMGsrsly

I love the coconut, pineapple, and plain caramel. :)

Such a pretty colour!

Thankfully the bag has all the ingredients listed. It’s just a sample, but I really appreciate that. Apparently all new packaging will come with full ingredient listings… although there still aren’t steeping suggestions. :)

I saw there was hibiscus in this, so I only steeped for about 3 min at boiling. 2 tsp in a 12 oz cup. It smells like delicious orange before steeping, and after steeping it takes on that herbal/medicinal scent. I added a bit of honey, and I’m glad I did.

The flavour of this is so neat. Fresh, bright oranges, sweet grapefruit, lemongrass, and yes I can tell there’s hibiscus here. Definitely on my shopping list. I hope this does well iced and as a cold brew!

That’s good news about packaging, although some steeping suggestions would also be appreciated!

This was a lot better the last time I had it, I think. Not nearly flavourful enough for me today. To me, a yunnan tea is rich honey and roasted squash or sweet potatoes. This wasn’t.

I know they are two completely different beasts, but I prefer Butiki’s Potato Pancakes and Applesauce as an apple cinnamon tea.

The Hot Apple Ginger Toddy tea from Herbal Infusions is divine, but something about the base mixing with the flavours of apple and cinnamon in this one just doesn’t sit right with me.

Definitely needs cream. Or something. It gets so bitter.

Sipdown! Drinking this with a small a mount of honey. Delicious cinnamon, thickness from the potato, the green tea isn’t bad, and the apple is lovely.

Not something I’d buy again, just because I’m not a fan of green teas. However, I’ve enjoyed trying it. :)

So. Delicious. I couldn’t decide between this and the Caramel Vanilla, and now I think I need both.

So malty and fruity and sweet and assam-y.

I wish I could drink black tea at night and not stay awake all night…..it doesnt affect you?…..craving some sort of black tea caramel concoction now…..

OMGsrsly

Oh it does. But my sleep schedule is completely messed up right now so I don’t care. (Also, I’m not due back at work until the 2nd.)

JustJames

doesn’t bug me either…. i take meds at night, an assam just makes them activate faster, lol. 80P

Butiki Teas

Cute mug!

OMGsrsly

Thanks, Stacy, it’s from Sbux. :) One of their winter/Christmas ones.

A sample from MissB.

I have no idea what this tea is supposed to taste like, but it’s good! Strong and sweet, all on its own. I’m having it with no sugar or milk (GASP!), and enjoying it a lot. I used 2 tsp in a new 12 oz mug, so I did overleaf a bit.

Oh! Cinnamon, ginger, hazelnuts, cacao nibs. Interesting.

I’m really glad I got to try this tea.

Preparation

Cavocorax

Mmmm. I might be into this, especially now that I’ve started reading Mycroft/Lestrade. :P

OMGsrsly

LOL. The tea is definitely worth a try, although I’m not sure I’d buy it. I have a hard time reading a lot of new Sherlock fic, because “my” Sherlock and Watson are Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke! :D

Cavocorax

My friend really likes those ones too – IDK if she’s watched the new stuff at all. I should probably try watching that stuff sometime!

Using up my last wee bit of this tea from Cavocorax!

It’s so good.

One of these days I’ll get myself a tin. :)

they do specials where they offer free shipping fairly regularly =0)

Fjellrev

I really like this one too and would totally get a tin. I just wish they had more on their site to kind of make the order more worthwhile, free shipping or not. :)

OMGsrsly

James, shhhhh. I don’t need to know that for a few more months! ;)

Yum! Apple cider tea!

So good with a bit of honey. It’s nice that it’s not loaded down with cinnamon, but I want more ginger. :) (I love ginger, though, so most teas that are “ginger” need more!)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
