293 Tasting Notes

drank Chai Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
293 tasting notes

Maybe this is stale but I’m not tasting/smelling chai at all – it’s more like hot milky drink, but I’m enjoying it. And if it comes with a caffeine boost: BONUS.

I think I have to decide if tea after 8 pm is worth the 5 am bathroom trip. Zzz.

I always end up oversteeping 52 teas. They’re not the tea for absent-minded people, I think. Damn you, crochet!!

I rarely want this tea (and have a lot of it – always the way) but it went nicely with lemon cupcakes today. :D

Half milk & half water today, idk, I had it with just hot water last time and I can’t decide which I liked better (although I kept smelling/tasting nori without the milk :P) but …yum! I’m not awake enough to rate things. I like not having to worry about steeping with matcha. MORNING ADVANTAGES.

I have more pearls from Teavivre if you want to try to compare?

Ozli

Oooh. Wanna do a switch? Or have you had this one?

Cavocorax

I don’t think I have? I don’t think I stole any when I sent it to you, did I? But I’d be interested if you have enough!

Ozli

Cool I will add em!

Cavocorax

Thanks. Let me know what else you’d like to try! I’ll let you know if I can’t do it, but there’s lots of room still in my envelope.

I’m out of practise with timing steeps so I wandered off and did other things until I remembered I had this tea on. K liked it, too. It’s not as peppery as it could be but it is definitely yum.

PS. HI!

Nothing wrong with being a seasonal tea drinker so long as you pop by. :)

drank Professor Grey by Della Terra Teas
293 tasting notes

LOL, I should have read reviews before buying this but I lucked out because I like it. Not an EG at allllll. It’s very lapsangy and smells SO GOOD and cedary like a sauna. Mmmmmm.

It’s also full of junk?? I opened the bag and was like HUH. They put the wrong tea in & mis-labeled? There are shiny silver balls and sprinkles and chocolate chips and flowery bits and and and???? Not very Professory, I have to say. But it smelled lapsangy, so I thought: STILL A MORNING TEA! :D?

And it is very good. The DT lapsang I have kinda hurts my tum a bit? I have to reeeeally be in the mood. But this one is gentler so I can see having it more often.

But it is NOT an EG. Bergamot is AWOL.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

What? That’s weird. Sounds like a grab bag of tea!

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
