4034 Tasting Notes
TTC and Yezi – teas tha ti have quite a bit of, but i’ve been putting off getting in to while i finished up some of my other teas. But now it’s time to start getting back in to them along with my norbu teas heh. I am still loving this one a bunch. I’m really glad that Tastybrew introduced me to Yezi and that they seem to be sticking around!
another from this morning – i am trying to drink this and the royal blend in order to make sure i balance out finishing them. I think i like royal blend just a teeeeny bit more than this, but i’d have to drink them side by side again to make sure as it’s been too long (yes a day) since i had the royal blend lol
another tea from way earlier today…..i’ve been trying to drink this one so that i don’t finish off my LB as quickly. same with me vanilla citrus spice…though it’s not working all that well as everything is just going away! I do love this a bunch, though i’m thinking i might be able to get away with just doing LB + cacao and being ok with missing the toasty rice part of the brew…mostly because the addition of the oolong in this just annoys me lol
this was my first tea of the day. I knew today was going to be a bad day so i wanted to get it started right. I managed to get in a few steepings of this while getting ready for work and it was enjoyable enough that i may be doing it more in future. I really like this one a bunch. just the hint of the smokiness if super tasty to me.
soooo funny story. I PURPOSELY SWAPPED FOR THIS ONE….and it has blergamot in it. dinosara graciously allowed me to have this one. I have to say….NO. I DID NOT STEEP THIS FOR 2 MINS… yes, i’m talking about you verdant and your two minutes “blends box teas all steeps for 2 mins…” although to be fair i did see at least ONE tea that had a different time.
Soooooo this one? totally not finding the orange in this….and i DID shake the bag up…i was hoping that the blergamot would give this s semblance or orange but be tied up with the vanilla and rooibos and it would be my ULTIMATE CREAMSICLE TEA. it’s not. it’s like a “spicy” sort of cinnamon? vanilla bean like woodsy rooibosy tea. i mean hey, it’s not half bad…but (and don’t tell anyone) i kinda keep wondering where the blerg is. Maybe after all these years of hating on it, it just up and left. got the heck out of dodge so it didn’t have to deal with my mean and hurtful words. that could happen right? stranger things have happened.
soooo on that note. tea good. not what i wanted or expected. will try to wrasstle with it later and see if i can’t wrangle a little more blerg outta this. shhhhhhhhhh don’t tell anyone.
Final Count: 141 (11 to go! 1 swap incoming)
Apparently it’s a bit of a CharlotteZero night today. This is another one that i begged her to try, mostly because it’s from HAWAII and well the likelihood of me getting to try many things from places far away is slim. I’m super glad that i did now. This is a really tasty non caffeine blend. I’m trying to finally take 5 mins to relax before bed and this is helping a great deal. I just wish i could place the smell. it reminds me SOOOOO strongly of something…except when i think about what, it slips away from me.
I could’t tell you what this tastes like either tonight. it’s fresh and fruity and just downright exactly what i needed right now. And it’s a marked difference from my other tea that i’m drinking which makes me giggle..though i couldn’t tell you why.
