1271 Tasting Notes
Between this an La Vanille, the other vanilla offering from Lupicia, this is the better. This is a tea that actually tastes like vanilla, even if the vanilla is the secondary flavor, the base being the first.
This isnt unpleasant, and in fact I’m going to jiggle my rating up a bit, but I’m not going to ever get this again. Its not the vanilla tea I have been dreaming of.
Bad sign when I woke up exsausted and with a headache. After work, I think I can hear a nap calling my name.
Todays steep was the familer light and fluffy cloud of rose. Good.
I’m adjusting my review. I still really like this, but it hasnt been pushing my buttons the way it used to. I dont know if its my tea aging, and not aging well, or if its me.
Still good, though, not not devine.
Backlogged from yesterday.
I found this in my local grocery store, and it was on sale. And I hadn’t bought any new teas in a very long time, and I could not help myself.
I think this will be nice in the summertime, and during warm days. Its light and fruity, and I swear I can smell the fuzz on the apricot.
If you had asked me to sum this tea up in one word I would have to say “strong.” However I would have to say it in a positive way. This is a strong tea. Like, beware those who do not care for Darjeelings and rose flavor. Beware! But the two strong flavors are dancing a bold dance together, and I really enjoy it.
Strong! Good! Tea! (future battle cry, perhaps?)
Up early, and a cup of this to fortify me.
I’m liking this more and more as I keep drinking it. Of course, I looooove ginger, so anything wiht ginger in it makes me perk right up. Yum yum! I am that kind of person that, when out to sushi, I will eat all the garnish ginger off my plate, and then all of my dates ginger as well.
So, in summation, ginger for the win!
Today is a weird day, schedule wise. My coworker who had the seizure recently is going in for her final check up. She’s been good, with no seizures or anything since that scary event. So I’m going in early to cover her shift while she gets her brain scanned.
I am happy to do it, but it did mean I had to get up extra early, so I’m staggering around and bumping into things.
This remains a soft pink cloud of tea. I dont know that I’ve had a rose tea that tastes quite so pink. Its good.
This is a good tea, but the balance is critical. I think I steeped it just a hair too long this morning, but its still enjoyable.
Its an interesting combo, the green apple and the rose. I like it.
The storm yesterday has gone as quicky as it came, and now its going to be very warm all day.
Storm! Theres a storm brewing! This is highly unusual for my part of the world, and I’m excited. Rain! Cool air! Better tea drinking weather.
Well, who knows how long it will last me, so I ran for my teapot, and brewed up an evening tea.
Blergh. Blergh! What happened? I remembered this as being Forever Nuts-esque, but not as good. Today I brew up a bland cup, with the only note being a faint and artificial sweetness. Ick.
I’m glad this is a sipdown. This is the second Teavana tea that has lead me astray with its name. Caramel Almond Amaretti sounds so lovely, but its been a major letdown, with none of the promise of its name. Gah.
Sipdown, thank goodness.
