5800 Tasting Notes
catching up from this morning! I finished this off today while cleaning up the house and trying to get a jump on this for today. It’s a beautiful sunshiney day out so i’m hoping to go out with my other half once he’s done work to check out the new nerd store in Toronto and maybe go for afternoon dumplings :) not sad to see this one go though it was a decent cup. Never a reorder for sure.
mmmmm cup of this, with a few cacao shells in it to enhance the chocolate… SOooo good. I’m going to miss this one. I really hope that it comes back to Winners sometime since that’s likely the only way i’ll be getting it again any time soon.
Final Count: 145 (woot! made me sipdown goal today…now can i get 5 more in tmrw…)
had a cup of this tonight while doing my best NOT to order more tea. Yunnan Sourcing, Herbal Infusions, Damn fine tea…i’m looking at you! Thanksfully, DFT has lots left of the special tea, HI has poor service and Yunnan Sourcing won’t disappear on me..so i think i’ve managed to curb my impulse. I feel like i REALLY need to try and last longer than a week in to March :)
Still enjoying this one as a caffeine free option, though i DO like the black base better. Likely won’t be a restock but it’d been nice to have :)
tea cocktail with dinner! this + coconut rum and a splash of pineapple juice = a good time for my mouth! :) This also puts me at 145 for tonight…and there’s a very good chance of getting to 140 tomorrow unless we go out after my other half is done work. That also means i’m in danger of succumbing to an order (Yunnan Sourcing, A&D and HI..i’m looking at all of you!) That being said, i’m trying REALLY hard to hold off on all orders until after i get Terri’s box.
Anyway..this one? I likely would get it again since i prefer herbals like verdant’s elderberry or RiverTea’s fruit teas…but i still like the tartness of this one since then i can sweeten it with alcohol or juice! :)
OH MAN! SOOOOOO GOOOD! Seriously…So when i first pulled this out of the bag i was like hmm..expensive trail mix anyone? It’s a heavy tea AND it’s 3tsp per cup….and there’s giant coconut strips in this…but MAN OH MAN. love it. My other half is making banana bread tonight..and this is like liquid banana bread. I even convinced him to have some and he was like oh hey…that’s really good. It even smells like banana bread baking in the oven… and the coconut? totally not overpowering and likely just adding to the delicious creamy banana taste. I dunno what else to say…this tea? sooo good. I had originally picked this up because i like banana flavoured teas and because i figure i’d try some teas that didn’t have tasting notes to help RiverTea out since i won their contest. I’m SOOOOO happy i did.
This isn’t the same sort of banana from foxy’s roxy’s tea…this is honestly…liquid banana bread. so it’s sweet…and very much banana bread..and so good..and did i mention it’s like drinking banana bread? holy god i love this smell… lol
well i screwed this one up. was going for a shorter steep..but when i asked my other half to take the tea that wasn’t fruit bits out, he thought i said take the fruit bits out…so this steeped for like 10 mins. sooooo thanks for sending this my way variaTEA (and roswell) but uh apparently 10 mins is too long for this one haha
