5925 Tasting Notes
backlog from yesterday. This one was sent to me by terri and she got it from teaexplorer. I have to say, this is a really nice tea. I love that the smoek isn’t super intense and, as with all my smokey teas, i tried it with maple syrup. The result was a delicious tasty cup that i gulped down and was finished before long.
Final Count Yesterday: 193 (thanks to Cavocorax and VariaTEA)
mmmm another backlog from yesterday. I decided to open this one up since it’s been ages since i had it and i wanted to see if i still love it. and i do. :) I like the subtleness of the strawberry flavour and how well it blends with both the chocolate and the puerh. It really is just a great cup of flavoured puerh :) i’ll have to try it as a latte before i finish it up, as i think that might be pretty tasty!
backlog from yesterday. I had these in the morning and i’m going to call them
keychange’s since she was kind enough to send me a few more of these babies that i adore! I relaly hope that someday Garrett can source these again since they are currently my favourite black pearls. there’s just something about the way they brew up that has me reaching for them over others when i want pearls. :) thanks keychange!
hmmmm tonight this tastes a little like cough medicine. Apparently i didn’t get enough pineapple chunks or soemthing in this cup. It looks like this may not be the tea for me if the cups stop being consistently good. Will try a few more and see what the final verdict is later.
Final Count: 160 (i’m thinking i should be worried if that’s 10 sipdowns in a day that i did NOT work from home lol)
sooooo i drank the world tonight. and just when i was about to call it quits, i realised i was at 161. No way i can leave my cupboard at that! Soooo here’s another one haha. This one is another from awkward soul via terri and it’s interesting. After the much richer creamier teas that i had, this one is on the light side. I AM getting rhubarb taste here but different from the rhubarb that stacy used in ruby pie. It’s creamy and the black base in this one isn’t bitter or overpowering. Overall, not a tea that i’m going to be in love with, but still a good cup this evening…
want. more. of. this. Sharing the rest of my sample of this one with cavocorax because, well i’m meeting up with her to drop off the teas of hers that are living at my house. And um..making a package for her is fun. and if she likes this as much as i do, then JOINT ORDER!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! lol This one came to me from awkward soul via terri :) mmm this really is the sort of tea that coffee lovers would like…if you like your coffee creamy and rich and delicious.
drink, drink, drink…i am going to be sloshy tonight… but i’m having fun! and that’s all that matters. I made double chocolate banana bread tonight just to try out the recipe so i’m pretty much just hanging out waiting to try it! it smells soooooo good! this tea? will not too shabby, though not a restock. glad i got the chance to try it though!
Tried this one again tonight and i’m still not sure how i feel about it…on the whole, I probably like it less than i think i should. LOL I really like the puerh, which makes me want to try more teas from GC, but the additions are not up my alley. However, as always, i am super thankful to Ysaurella for sharing with me :)
this one came to me via keychange who knew that i wouldn’t likely enjoy this one but i WAS curious about a black jasmine versus a green jasmine, which seems to be the worst of everything for me. Soooo this one. yeah, i still don’t like it, and i couldn’t drink much of it…BUT! BUT! i actually DID prefer this to a green jasmine. Something about the black muted the floral blaaaaaaaah and made it close to tolerable…almost hahahaha. So thank you for sharing Keychange… it was a fun experiment :) Still a success for me!
