1059 Tasting Notes
Oh this is good! Thanks so much, Dexter3657!
I rinsed for about 20 seconds, and did a first steep of 2 minutes or so. It’s nice and earthy and mushroomy. Mmm.
No, it’s not super complex or fancy, but it’s delicious and I could see enjoying it any time of day. I’ll probably have a couple more steeps tonight, and I have enough left for a couple more rounds. Definitely something to consider purchasing, as I wouldn’t be scared to waste the tea, yet is is something I can sit and enjoy.
(1.5 tsp, 12 oz)
I did a rather random cold steep last night. Turns out it’s seriously excellent.
1 tbsp Bear Trap by DavidsTea.
1 tbsp Goji Chokeberry Strawberry by Zen Tea
1 tbsp Strawberry Cream (fruit) by Zen Tea
So. Good. Strawberry heaven. I have half of it in a water bottle at work, and when I get home I’m probably going to end up chugging the rest.
Yes, it’s snowing, and I’m drinking iced tea (although, not at my desk). I also have my desk heater on, am wearing 3 layers plus a scarf, and when I get up to do work rather than facebook, steepster and analysis, I put on a lab coat as well. :)
Oh yum. A plain and simple and delicious assam.
I do like this tea. I added a bit of honey and did a shorter steep than usual. I think the last time I had this tea I was still loading everything up with milk and sugar. How things change. :)
It’s light and malty, with that touch of astringency assams have.
I’ll probably end up picking up more of this one when I replenish my herbals. Zen Tea’s prices are generally pretty good, and their shipping is super fast because they’re so close to me.
Drinking this one right after the Earl Grey definitely shows me that I’m not loving earl grey teas so much anymore. :( They were what I used to drink ALL the time! Earl grey with milk and honey. A GIANT mug. I’d either guzzle it or reheat it throughout the day.
Maybe I should pick up some Twinings, just to see?
I got this tea (I think it’s this tea! They have a lot of Earl Grey’s!) from wheezybee. Thank you!
It’s super bergamot-y. Really a lot bergamot-y. I’m enjoying it right now, but I’m not sure Earl Grey teas are something I love quite so much anymore.
The base is hearty, and this is definitely a wake-up tea. Perhaps a 2 minute steep would have been better, as this is a little strong.
ooh. Milk. I always used to add milk to my EG teas. Oh yeah. A splash of almond milk and a little maple syrup, and this is really tasty. The tea still feels oversteeped, but I won’t have problems drinking it now. :)
The last time I got this, I received the bottom of the barrel. It’s mostly rooibos. :)
Still, the flavours are nice, especially when I mix a little Chicory Dickory Dock into it. It would be Even Better if I had some of that coconut creamer I make, but I’ve been lazy and tired and don’t have any in the fridge. Almond milk does in a pinch!
Right now, this is pretty darn good tea. I’m not sure I’d want more, but it’s so delicious after that piece of gluten free cheesecake – the one my BFF left in my fridge.
It’s sweet, malty, a little chocolatey. I wouldn’t have guessed it’s flavoured, though. There’s not enough chocolate there for that.
Thank you, Sil. I appreciate being able to try this one!
I finished this one today as well. Sadly I only drank half of it before I came home and passed out on my bed while reading fanfic. Would mate at dinner be a Really Bad Idea™? It feels like it might.
Oh well. I’ll finish my travel mug and cook something delicious. :)
Thanks, MissB, you are a rock star. And once we arrange pickup for that other parcel, I’ll have even more of this!
