1927 Tasting Notes

Thanks, Shmiracles!!

Oooh, it tastes like a vanilla chai cake. Yummy!

I’m having it with (surprise) almond milk. It goes well.

Yum yum yum.

(FYI to everyone with my address, I’m going to be moving May 15. Yes, this is lots of warning, I’m doing this on purpose! I just got a surprise package today!)

I got my Bellocq samples from fuzzypeachkin and CrowKettle! YAY!

Of course I’m having the assam first.

It’s nice. Really smooth. Really doesn’t need anything added to it (and I do like adding things to my tea). It’s a very sweet assam. IDK. Descriptive words are escaping my brain.

Tea good.

Sil

it was a nice one, eh? :)

OMGsrsly

Yes. And less strong than some, but still nice and strong. I wonder what shipping is like… :)

Sil

the tea itself is a little pricy for some of them heh

OMGsrsly

Yeah, sadly. And with moving now May 15 (we haven’t even looked at the house yet but it’s ours if we want it) and the added costs there… I probably shouldn’t buy any more tea.

CrowKettle

When I ordered the white wolf blend shipping came to about $9, I think. The teas are definitely pricey though.

OMGsrsly

Oh, that’s not bad. But yes it’s quite expensive for the amount.

I think “Mmm…” is all I really need to say about this tea.

Mmm… I think I’m preferring the unsweetened matchas better these days. There’s just too much sugar in this mix for me.

It’s still delicious, and I do need to drink it more often.

1/2 scoop for 16 oz unsweetened almond milk and ice.

drank SBT: Root Beer Float by 52teas
1927 tasting notes

Sipdown.

I made this up and took it to gaming yesterday.

It was OK. Not something I’d buy again due to the fact that I’m not a huge fan of iced black teas (except at lunch during the summer, which is really limiting).

Steeped and flash chilled. Made ~2 litres (8 cups, whatever that is). Added 1 tbsp sugar.

(Oh gods, so much sugar yesterday. So. Much. Next time? I need to not snack because wow. Caramel popcorn is my nemesis.)

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I ate a whole tub of not just caramel popcorn but white chocolate coated caramel popcorn over the weekend. I understand. ;_;

Suziqzer

MMMMmmmm… Caramel popcorn… never heard of white chocolate coated caramel popcorn.. That might just be over the top for me :)

OMGsrsly

I’ve seen that stuff and resisted. :) I got a giant bag of the cheddar-and-caramel mix at Costco before gaming, because hormones. Needless to say we ate almost the entire bag. Next time my snack will be hummus and carrots! :)

drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea
1927 tasting notes

This is a really quite good coconut oolong. I still prefer the one I get from SOKO, because that one is even more floral oolongy with baked coconut flavours.

However, this is a good, slightly less expensive alternative. Definitely something to consider throwing into a future order! I’ll have to see how this one cold steeps, too. :)

Thanks, Cavocorax! (I swear I’ve tried this before, but no note? IDK. My mind is so lost right now.)

Cavocorax

I’ve had a few notes that I swear disappeared too! So we’re either collectively crazy or there’s a system issue.

OMGsrsly

Right now my brain is so seive like with the selective memory, I’m not sure. :) Weekes soon. Yay weekend!!

drank Nina's Paris by Nina's Paris

This was a super teensy sample that wheezybee sent to me.

Sadly, it was a bust. I steeped it 4 minutes in 4 oz liquid, and the result was a sour watery mess.

:(

Possibly something to try in the future.

CA! RA! MEL! And toasted mate.

Thank you Shmiracles! This is exactly what I needed on this paperwork-and-science crammed afternoon.

Wooooooocaffeine!

OMGsrsly

Caffeine good, paperwork bad.

drank Citrus by Fru P Kaffe & The
1927 tasting notes

So this one came to me from MissB who got it from Angrboda. :)

It was labelled “herbal” so I dumped it into a basket last night… then decided it looked weird and checked it out on steepster. Mate. Of course.

So I’m having it this morning instead. It’s a green mate. I much much prefer them roasted.

But now that it’s been sitting around for a while, it tastes more like lemongrass. I can get behind that.

Thanks for sharing the tea, MissB, but it’s not really for me.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
Angrboda

The bag I got was from Fru P’s christmas calendar and it was just labelled ‘citrus’. I could see it didn’t have any actual tea in, so I designated it as herbal. (In Denmark mate would fall under that category anyway as it’s very uncommon) The mate surprised me too when I had it. Typical for me, I had it on a day where I had decided to try and avoid caffeine…

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I’m glad I checked, and your note confirmed it for me. I had too many matcha candies last night and slept poorly anyways, so I’m glad I didn’t accidentally have more caffeine!

Profile

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.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

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!
