684 Tasting Notes
Today I must tend to my parents dog, who needs walking, and then I am going to the half off thrift store sales. Time to wake up!
Goodbye, Assam. You’re pretty good. I may very well get you again, as Harney & Sons is determined to send me tons of this as a sample. Ah well.
Sipdown, and I’m under 70 teas! Lets see how long that lasts….
I love the Lupicia newsletter, with its free samples.
Grape flavored tea, eh? How very unexpected. It certainly smells just as advertised.
The taste has a slightly less bright grape flavour, but you do get the grape. Its very interesting.
I had this hot, but I imagine it would do well in a cold steep.
Attempt # 2 with this tea.
Its still not as salted caramel-y as I would hope for. I tried it at a longer steep time (the package reccomends 4-7 minutes. Seven seemed a little long, so I did five), which removed the coffee like aftertaste, but did not bring out more of the saltiness that I was hoping for.
This is my experiementation tea. After each cup, I say to myself “I will try again!” This has got potential, and I’m hoping I can unlock it.
This is a cinnamon red hot in liquid form. From the first sip, I was instantly transported to the movie theatres of my youth, where, sometimes, I would have some of these instead of the usual popcorn.
I dunno, sometimes they sounded like a good idea, but when I have them they remind me that they are not my favorite. By a long shot.
Still, there is no denying the power of this tea. It is a thing of epic power. Its just not for me.
There has been a lot of excited talk about the new fall teas, and I was feeling a little left out. However I’ve got this! And I havent tried it enough! And even though its going to be hot today, it still feels like fall, somehow, so time to brew up some Pumpkin Creme Brulee.
Very pumpkin-y, like a well baked pie. And I even get a crisp sugar note, like the top of a creme brulee. Yum.
Fall tea envy abated. For now.
This is a spicy/sweet combination, very unusual for a camomile, and I like it.
All the talk of the new DAVIDsTea fall collection made me want something a little spicy before bed, but I need to sleep deeply tonight, so a herbal was in order.
Enter Love tea. Bingo.
How many teas with the word “Love” in them do I own? At least three, now that I think about it!
I’m almost through this, but its easily got in my local area, so it might very well wander back into my cupboard after its through.
