6037 Tasting Notes
i’ve been slacktacular with my tea logging the past week. Not sure what it is but i am seriously de-motivated by almost everything – work, tea, house stuff… just want to go away or change things up, but the more i look at things to do and places to go, the more it sucks ‘cause i really can’t afford to do much this year until the we get through all of the wedding related things. I swear to god if we have kids and they get married, if they want to elope or have a destination wedding or something teeeeny, tiny, i will let them! haha
This has been one that i’ve been trying to pick up more frequently, if only so that i run out of my verdant teas at the same time for a re-order lol. It’s still tasty and delicious though this harvest wasn’t as amazing as the last. :)
I really like orange teas. I also really like rosemary…in cooking. :) While i would call this tea an accurate one, it doesn’t work for me because it turns the tea into very much a savory tea. And orange for me isn’t a savory sort of thing…it’s sweet…and tangy but not savory. So this is a good tea, but it doesn’t work for me. The orange and the rosemary blend quite nicely, and the rooibos isn’t a very overpowering taste. It’s also not that sort of woody rooibos. So if that sounds like your sort of thing, id recommend this. :)
Another one that i have the pleasure of finishing off. On the upside, i’m nearly through tasting all the teas that i really wanted to have a run with out of the box. It’s been a good one! This is a lovely tea and very much a desserty tea with a creamy, buttery, apple spice sort of taste to it. This is a little rich for me though, so i’m not sure that i need more of it in my life haha It’s really lovely though!
HGTTB haha i hadn’t read the review of this one before i picked it out of the box to try. I don’t think it’s quite as bad as everyone thinks it is but i also wouldn’t brew this straight up western. It does have a little fishy smell to it but as far as the taste goes, it’s a pretty average cup. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s not toss out worthy either :)
so i don’t mind hibiscus…but in this tea, it for sure contributes to a really sour brew, blueberry but sour blueberries. Initially a really great smelling blueberry tea but in this particular instance, i’d recommend less Hibby, though i generallly don’t mind it the way some folks do. I finished off the last cup of this one as well from the box. yay for single servings. heh
