4041 Tasting Notes

drank Golden Monkey Black Tea by Teavivre
4041 tasting notes

more teas from yesterday! This one gets better and better every time i have it. While it’s totally nothing like LB from verdant, i feel like if i could no longer have LB…this one might be a suitable substitute (note the use of the word substitute, not replacement). Bumping the rating a little because this malty chocolatey tea has been great to drink recently as i work on getting through my bag of this (it’s one of my oldest teas because i always forget about it!)

drank BeerButter Tea by Custom-Adagio Teas

another from yesterday and the lovely dexter This one was pretty close to teas a creamy caramel, vanilla cup though sadly that isn’t butterbeer to me, AND since i’ve recently had both tea G’s cream tea and caramel tea, this one feel short. It was still a nice enough cup to drink, but i’d reach for Tea G’s first :)

drank Draught of Peace by Custom-Adagio Teas
4041 tasting notes

time to catch up on yesterdays teas! We went out last night to a friends for board games and didn’t get home until about 6 hours ago, so i had no time for tea notes :) Dexter sent this one to me as a surprise with a few other of the potions teas from Adagio. This one is labelled as apricot, cream and vanilla. Sadly, i was getting mostly a peach sort of flavour, which is most assuredly NOT apricot. All that being said though, it was a nice cup of peach vanilla tea, and while i’ve been “off” of most peach teas lately, this one didn’t trigger any “omg no no no no no peach!” feelings from me this round :) Thanks dexter!

drank Banane Chocolate by Lupicia
4041 tasting notes

farewell banana tea! i will miss you! I had this one with caramel from tea G….and let me tell you…soo good! i didn’t have enough of this for a sil sized cup so i figured, why not add caramel for a caramel chocolate banana tea! To be honest, the chocolate is muted, so it was mostly a caramel banana….but still soo good. I’ll be getting more of this in future! :)

drank Honey Scented Black Tea by Oollo Tea
4041 tasting notes

dexter sent this one my way as a surprise so i figured i should try it out this weekend as i’m puttering around trying to get ready for games night! This one is pretty tasty, but there’s a weird after taste to it that i’m not a fan of. It smells delicious and the brew is a smooth cup of tea. there are some honey notes to this, though not as much as some of the taiwanese blacks that i’ve had from stacy or TTC. It would be great, if not for the after taste. Thanks for letting me try this one dex!

Cavocorax

Hahah. It was ridiculous and cute, and allowed me to practice doge, which… apparently is useful for silly instances like this?

drank Rooibos Kalahari by Tea Affair
4041 tasting notes

dexter sent this to me! Since i’m exausted tonight and just want to relax and try to get to bed early, i opted for this one as my evening tea, though mostly because not adding this to my cupboard seemed like a good idea. Dexter managed to bump me over 140 even with the couple of sipdowns i managed today.

This is kinda nice. It reminds me a little of the lemon and mytle lupicia tea i had been drinking the past few days, but i’m guessing that’s the lemongrass heh. The rooibos in this one doesn’t overpower the taste of the lemon and that makes me happy. it also means that it’s not one of those woodsy rooibos’s. mostly this is just a relaxing happy lemon rooibos tea. thanks dexter!!

Final Count: 143

I did 4 months of the Amoda box subscription (first month I sent to you), and I haven’t tried ANY of the others. LOL You’ve tried more of them than I have. Why am I looking at Simple Loose Leaf subscription? What is wrong with me?

Dexter3657

Glad you liked this one!!

Kaylee

Dex – because omg it’s only $1! It’s so hard to resist free/cheap tea that has high odds of being good.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
