5913 Tasting Notes
My only other tea today… Nice thing was that it had just enough of a flavour punch to give me that second wind after running around a bunch. :) Happiness is, tea and girl time! I’m REALLY hoping work doesn’t need me tonight, as there is a release going on this evening. I’d like to be able to sleep in tomorrow and then spend the day relaxing, drinking tea and watching tv. Just need some downtime to relax on my own :)
Final count: 208 (need to get to 200 tomorrow!) On the upside.. 8 more sipdowns of older teas and i’ll be within 6 months of my oldest teas! So maybe i’ll be able to get some work done on those 8 teas tomorrow too :)
Another delicious tea that i took out with me today. Early morning start today to make it in to the spa with nicole for a girls day out. Mani/Pedis, lunch, movie and then dinner with my other half, her husband and the little one. Followed by a short game before coming home late. I was glad i made the effort in the morning to brew up two travel mugs to bring with me :) I needed it by the afternoon!
my other tea from today which is neither an old tea or a tea close to being completed…it’s just a tea i love and wanted. Not that i didn’t want the others but this was the tea that i was craving. MissB sent a package today, which of course bumped up my numbers. At this point, i’m sure my goal is so far away it’s not funny.
70 teas in 10 days. I’m fairly certain 7 sipdowns a day is not going to happen…but i might get close. maybe. :)
Final count: 209
tired and long day tomorrow..so keeping it quick tonight..i hope. This was early morning delicious tea and it was nice to revisit. Bumped the rating up a little because it as much tastier this time around than i remembered….that being said, i tried this a long time ago, and i know my tastes have changed.
thank you VariaTEA (and Nina’s Paris) for letting me try this one. Sadly, this one falls a little short of expectations because i largely get a sense of creamy rooibos from this one. If i squint and think really hard, i can taste the mint ish…so maybe this one just needs to steep a lot more. or be overleafed :) Either way it’s not a bad tea because i like the roibos that Nina’s uses, so i’m ok with it but i prefer others that they have more.
So this one? THIS one is delicious… i find this caramel cream preferable to the version of caramel rooibos from Damman Freres. VariaTEA was awesome and sent this one my way.
Fun facts? This puts me at 1650 different teas tried since i joined steepster. It also brings my final count today to 204 teas after being pushed to 215 today after starting at 193. this also marks my 3807 tasting note….in uh 1 year, 8 months and uh 10 days. true story yo.
bad steepster! bad! it make me click on the review button a bunch but never popped open the windo to make a note..and then i had to go and delete 1092382109382 blank entries for this tea.
I think i’m a little spzy right now because i saw the name of this tea and the first thing that popped into my head was that song… “comet, it makes your mouth turn green….comet…it tastes like gasoline… comet,…..da da da da… so try comet, and vomit today….”
thankfully this tea? it’s tasty and has a pretty design and cavo gave it to me…so that’s a lot of YES to this tea :)
