2040 Tasting Notes
Sample from Kittenna. Thank you!
Finished it up today, and while I liked it I didn’t love it. Of course, burning my tongue on my quesadilla might have contributed to that, but it was fairly astringent/bitter/something I didn’t love. I didn’t add milk to it because I just wasn’t feeling it.
Still, I’m sad that one more Butiki tea is gone from my cupboard.
Finishing an old sample that I got from someone or maybe I bought it myself…
So good. I’m really enjoying this type of tea a lot. Its nice without anything added, which means I don’t have to worry about cleaning my travel mugs. :)
I brought this to volunteering today, and I’m going to credit it with the magic charm of snagging me all the wool and all the linen. Seriously. All of it. 2 LARGE bags of scraps, plus 12 pieces that are probably all 3m+ each. Plus I got more on Thursday. So now I have to wash/dryclean all the fabrics, and then make all the clothes and costumes…
Getting my teas organized means sipping down on little bits of things and finishing samples.
This one is an oldie from CrowKettle and again I’m enjoying it tonight with some honey.
Lemon-ginger tea, pretty much. I can’t really tell there’s green tea in here, except for the fact that I brewed it at a low temperature. I do like it, and would consider getting another sample tin of it in the future.
I’m pretty sure this is the tea I just made. Pretty sure. ;) The label on the tea bags just said “Poire Chocolat”.
Thanks to MissB and Sil for sharing.
It’s actually a lot better than I expected! It smells a little like toasted rice, which is somewhat weird. But the flavour is a little sweet. Breathing in over the tea with my mouth, I get the taste of floral pear. And also evaporating off my tongue after I sip. It’s not super chocolatey, but there are hints.
I don’t think I’d want a whole box, as ripe pear really isn’t my favourite flavour, but I’m really glad I got to try this one! Thank you!
(2 tea bags in about 11 oz for 3 min)
I got this from keychange during the meetup. Yay! So excited! Only also so sad. Because it’s lost a lot of flavour. I should have used both bags for this cup, but I didn’t. Whoops. No fault of keychange’s, just an older tea that hadn’t been drunk and was in the “share or compost” pile.
It’s still tea, it’s just very weak. :)
