273 Tasting Notes
Spring is in the air! It’s not the melting snow and sublime temps in the 30’s that clue me in to this, either. It’s the fact that I am actually wanting to drink green tea! All winter I think I drank green tea once. All I’ve been wanting is super roasted oolong and black tea. All of my green tea has been languishing. Maybe now I can finally drink up some of my older green teas!
This tea is PERFECT today. I’ve had this tea for quite awhile and I think it tastes even better with age. Super mellow, and buttery, and popcorn-y.
This is a Pre packaged sample from Teavana, hence REALLY REALLY sweetened. I don’t usually drink sweetened tea, so this is making me feel I went all out with syrups at a Starbucks or something. Since it’s so sweetened, I only really taste sugar and cinnamon. A pity, since it has so many great ingredients.
I’ve been trying to avoid caffeine in the evening, so I pulled out this herbal. I had enough left for one more steeping- a sipdown! I’ve been doing a lot of sipdowns lately, which means I finally get to do a tea order! I have been enduring a long, self-inflicted hiatus from buying tea.
I tried this with milk and it was nummy! Very minty!
