3678 Tasting Notes
oh man… so glad i read my previous tasting notes. For some reason i thought i hadn’t tried this before. Turns out i had, and i pondered what adding some maple syrup to this would do. So i did. and guess what? I totally just drank the entire cup quick like a bunny. I’m in heaven! this is ssssoooooo good with the added maple syrup. Hells yeah! I’m totally dancing in my chair. I wish i’d sent you some of this terri. on it’s own it’s so not this good, but man this maple syrup in it is KICKING IT! totally just brings the blend together. woot!
oh yeah…and yes, today is work from home day so YAY for overload on tea drinking!
Edit: Not bumping the rating on this up because the tea itself isn’t delicious by itself.
sooo this is pretty much a coconut tea. There might be a hint of vanilla hanging around to cut the edge of the coconut but i am not picking up any of the apple bits. It’s not a bad tea but i was hoping for so much more from a “eleven” tea. Actually, stick dr who on anything and i want it to the best damn thing in this world. :) not bad, but not as wonderful as i hoped that it would be.
thanks again Terri!
Oh adagio….how i hate your black base. This smells divine! It even tastes quite delicious, until that black bitterness hits. I’m going to try the last of this cold brewed so that I can see if that helps at all. Overall, this isn’t a bad tea, it just needs to be with another base…not adagio lol
Edit: as the tea cools off it loses that icky adagio black taste, so i’m hoping the cold brew will be delicious since the fruity aspect of this tea is pretty tasty!
Thank you Terri!
oh Terri….i tried. For you, i tried. I pulled this one out of the box of samples that Terri sent me after seeing Dinosara’s post about rose tea. I warned Terri and promised myself whatever she sent i would try. So try i did! For the record? I’m sure this is a lovely tea if you enjoy licking flower beds ;) Ok so it’s not that bad, but floral teas are truly not up my alley. If i rated this purely on the basis of how pretty it is, it’d be up there in terms of rating. As it stands, i’m not going to rate it because i don’t like floral teas. In an attempt to try and provide some unbiased feedback – this is a smooth tea that captures that rose essence. Additionally, if you like jasmine pearls, the rose in this blends really nicely with it.
Oh stacy… this is lovely!
I’m finally getting a chance to try this one and i’m not sure why i waited to long. I know that there is a sample (i think) of the other darjeeling on it’s way but this is pretty tasty. I don’t even know how to describe this one. It’s a black that doesn’t taste like a black but still has character and delicious notes happening here. mmmmm yeah this is nice! (sorry for the inadequate note, just not sure how to describe this)
mmm continuing my butiki week, i figured i should finish this one up as well. SIPDOWN! I so wish this one tasted nearly as good cold as it does cold brewed. I supposed i could brew it hot and then pour it over ice but the thought never occured to me until this second lol
I really like this one a lot. it’ll be back in my cupboard before you know it. It’s one of the few mango teas that i find actually tastes like mango. :)
Since i had the organic assam that Terri sent me yesterday, I figured that i should try the regular version. I for sure prefer this one (or managed to brew this one correctly) This one still has a bit of a bite to it but it tastes smoother to me. I also really like the aroma that this one has – sweet almost. mmmm tasty malty goodness.
I made a sil sized cup of this to help me tackle my meetings with China tonight. Thankfully it did the trick. This is little more bitter? than i like or rather the last notes in each sip have a bit of bite to them that isn’t my favourite across teas but isn’t terribly bad in this tea. I could have also brewed this incorrectly (read too long) as it got away from me a little. Thanks to terriharplady for sharing this one with me!
I can’t wait until we get my new bookcase/tea cupboards set up over the weekend.
