7950 Tasting Notes
totally gapped on doing a review for this today but i’ll likely pick it up again tomorrow in any case. I am trying really hard to get through reviewing the samples from Wymm tea that they were so generous about sending out to people. So far yesterday’s shou was my favourite but this one was quite nice. I remember most that this was slightly sweet – slightly floral but not to the point where i didn’t want to drink it. Only got through a few steepings today so more tomorrow.

*missB sent this one on and i have to say, for a herbal chai it’s not too shabby. I’m a fan of the ingredients and i like the heat that this one has while still being flavourful. there’s a bit of a sweetness here which i suspect comes from the licorice since i seem to be especially sensitive to that sort of sweetness. On the whole though, this was a pretty great cup of herbal chai! thanks missb!
I figured i should try this as a straight tea before i finished up so i brewed this one according to the instructions in just water. The result very much reminds me of a latte – toned down. I get little to now caramel but i DID remove all the sugar from this package so maybe that’s what brings the caramel to teh yard – er tea…. Not a bad cup. but nothing i need to restock, especially given the amount of sugar that was added to this blend. :(
I feel like they forgot about the orange in these. I’ve had a couple steeps now and while this is a really nice puerh -smooth, with some depth there is little to no orange to be found. Which makes me sad because i love orange + puerh and was so hopeful for these little guys. Still though, not crying over it because the puerh in itself is lovely and has been very enjoyable this afternoon.
yay! comfort tea to get me through the day. Really trying hard not to push myself too much but i really want to get rid of all the extra crap in the house we keep holding on to for no reason. Today was clothes…good bye stuff i haven’t worn in a year! hopefully someone out there will be able to make use of them as they’re nice pieces, just not anything i wear anymore because of style/comfort/size etc.
sad to see this tea go but it was lovely to have. I really do love the way stacy did blackberry – the flavouring was always tasty!
Finally feeling a little better today so i’m going to have to try not to over do it but it’s back to work on clenaing up the house…today is operation closet cleaning! going through old clothes and knick knacks and such while my other half works on the kitchen. We took the week off to get the house 100% back to normal and me being sick has derailed that completely. So here’s hoping we can get most of it done in the next couple of days. this tea was great to kick off the morning. :) comforting and familiar before i try to get through some of my samples/smalller sizes
Final Cup of tea tonight…. plan for tomorrrow – at least 4 more sipdowns to get through MissB’s teas and hopefully another puer from Wymm teas. This batch doesn’t seem nearly as tasty as previous batches….almost like there’s not enough vanilla or something. It’s stilll decent but would rank lower for me than it’s current rating.

I don’t love this nearly as much as i did when i received it in my swap. That’s sad, though i’m loving the tin it came in so i’ll manage. It’s still a decent herbal but there are others that i’d drink first. These are handy when travelling though since they’re in tea bag format. I just need to up my liquids to try and help get rid of the sick, so i’m working on some herbals this evening. Blueberry and orange for sure….my last tasting note said this would be great with vanilla so maybe i’ll add a little vanilla powder to the mix :)
