5370 Tasting Notes

80

mmmm…this is my morning to afternoon tea today as i work from home. I’m goign through one last round of this before the last of this goes to cavo (who miiiiight be surprised at all the goodies here for her) because she mentioned wanting to try more puerh and figure out what she likes/dislikes. At least part of this is from dinosara who sent me a number of the reserve club puerhs she disliked, while she got the green stuff i didn’t like haha. there will be numerous steepings of this one today – it’s a really nice puerh.

drank Caramel Apple by Butiki Teas

I wish this was just a bit more apple like. The caramel comes through nicely, and i don’t mind the oolong….but i keep searching for more apple. I’m hoping that a little sugar next time might work at bringing some of that out.

drank Plum Brandy Cheesecake by Butiki Teas

Next time i need to add just a little sugar to this one to see if it brings out the plum-y flavour. I am enjoying this a bunch and will, until it’s all gone :)

cookies sent this one my way which was great because it was on my wish list :) i am digging this cup today! it’s malty and slightly sweet potato-y and smooth and just a happy thing to be drinking on this fine morning. Thanks goodness it’s almost friday!

mmmmm sample from cookies so that i could try a few what-cha teas before i make a purchase. This one IS quite lovely as others have said. It’s malty and almost sweet but not quite. I didn’t get overly cocoa notes from this one, but there is a sense of that coming through in the background. Overall, i really nice cup of tea! thanks cookies!

drank Makai Black (Sinensis) by Tea Hawaii

JoonSusanna sent this one my way and since my cupboard is going to explode when things get here this month, i figure i better get a move on some of my smaller quantity/sample size teas. no one seems to be certain if this tea is the right listing or the other. as a general rule, this tea is less a tea for me than it is a tea for me but i don’t dislike it. after a couple steepings this morning to see if later steeps changed enough for me, i can say that this DOES have a sweet potatoe like flavour to it…there’s a mineral note in here that is what i’m not agreeing with. it’s sweet and just slightly malty. over all a decent cup….makes me want to try more teas from this company. thanks joon!

Working from home this morning because i haven’t been able to sleep well since we got back from vacation. So i’m exausted. The plus to that, is that since my other half is working nights this week, we’ll have a bit of time together to start putting the house back together lol my mother will be up in a week? and our spare bedroom currently has all our office things in it.
the other upside so this, is that my other half got up early to make banana bread, so it would be warm from the oven first thing in the morning. So a slice of that and a cup of this, and i was off to a great start this morning. Still meh about this tea, so the last of it is off to cavo so that she can give this one a try.

drank Lemon and ginger by Teapigs
5370 tasting notes

This is another tea that MIssB sent to the group – only about 6? more to go for me to try so that i can bundle the packages up. I would love this a lot more if it didn’t have licorice in it. I don’t actually mind licorice, but ever now and then i can’t take the sweetness that it add to things. the ginger is nice and i enjoy the lemon. with a little honey this is better, as it takes the edge off the licorice sweetness that i am not digging. thanks again MissB!

tea this evening while i try and relax. I enjoyed this a lot more off the sample that missB sent me – the box i bought, i’m not enjoying as much. it’s tasty but not as tasty. I may want to add a bit of vanilla powder next time and see if that smoothes things out a little more.

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.
