3108 Tasting Notes
sipdown! I had this early today as i need to get a few sipdowns in today since dexter made my cupboard go up a bunch! I think the BBB Box might also be sitting at the post office for me, so there’s another few teas. I REALLY want to stay as close to 150 as possible to make sure i keep my goal of 150 by black friday. Awesome tea friends are making that hard though! While i’m not an EG lover, i do appreciate getting to try this one out so thanks Cavocorax!
I received this one from Alice in our swap and honestly, i just wanted to drink it because the name is fun to say. :) It also helps that it’s an assam, which i love. I don’t recall much of this one as it’s a backlog from yesterday but i do remember enjoying it thoroughly. I have just enough for a small cup to really pay attention to it, while still being able to send a taste to Terri for her to try :)
this was a lovely tea that i had yesterday. I didn’t get much in the way of tea drinking done yesterday because of date night, but i plan on making up for that today with a work from home day haha. I’m looking forward to drinking my mandala teas once i get through a few more other teas in smaller amounts (dexter i’m looking at you here lady!)
This was my evening cup of tea because i’m exausted. I had this while watching an episode of dr who. Likely going to just try and get to sleep early tonight because tomorrow is date night!
I’m taking my other half out for dinner at La Societe (think fancy but not stuffy, french cuisine) followed by Aladdin (the musical) just because we haven’t been to the theatre in a long time. Plus i’m a big kid. so there lol
I was going to try and get at least one sipdown in today but that is SO not happening. I’m about ready to crawl in to bed and go to sleep until tomorrow.
i had this in the morning as well and it was super tasty again. I really do love sharing teas with terri and tastybrew!
pssssttt i’m a tired girl today. i drank this in the morning and it was delicious..come back to me blend…come back
This is pretty much still meh. I steeped it for longer this time to see what would come about from that and it’s still pretty meh. Hopefully next month will be better.
So apparently..my last tasting note put me at 2900 with 1255 teas rated and 158 teas in my cupboard – the oldest being from February 2013. How’s that for useless numbers? :) time for some non caffeinated blends into this evening as i have a mountain of work to do tomorrow and need to be well rested to get it all done. I’m sorry to see that this tea is getting near the end of it’s pouch. It will be a restock for me once i get to the end of it, one of the few teas from della terra that i really enjoy.
mmmm i cold brewed this one since i haven’t had it in a while. This is one that needs a bit of sweetner to take the edge away, but when you do it’s a delicious berry concoction that is perfect in summer. In winter, it’s a reminder that summer will be back soon! haha :)
I know i’ve had this one before, but apparently my tasting note is gone. Another tea i was drinking in an effort to try and drink my reserve club teas that I’ve been hoarding. While i don’t generally want anything to do with green oolongs, this is a relatively decent green oolong. It’s lacking that weird oolongy taste that i hate and there’s a sweetness to this that is quite delicious!
In the first steepings there were those floral notes…waiting to come out, which they did more so in the later steepings. It’s those later steepings i really didn’t like. too floral and vegetal for my tastes. If every steep tasted like the first one, i’d be golden haha. As such, I think i will pass the rest of this on to a tea friend to try out :) especially since there aren’t very many reviews of this one on steepster
