6588 Tasting Notes
this one really makes me happy at night. it’s like a kick in the pants sort of tea but yet not. Enjoying this one while working our way through season 4 of fringe and catching up on hannibal. This week is going to be a doozy so we’re trying to have a quiet evening. I love the chocolate and spicy kick to this tea. There are some really great gems out there from companies…you just have to have awesome friends who share them with you :)
Final Count: 182 [70 samples = fake cupboard at 112 with a week and a half to go! 1 tea from October left in my cupboard and 4 from December…not too shabby]
Roswell Strange sent this one my way and i opted to try it with dinner. this is a rather pleasant raspberry tea, and i’ll even forgive that it’s an oolong :) I think this would be really nice in summer as a cold brew given the way that the rasberry flavour seems to be coming out in this one. I had a plesant time with this one, reading on the balcony in the sun :)
Another tea from roswell strange that i’m finally getting around to trying. this one wasn’t half bad, though i prefer the versions that i’ve had that were not caffeine free aka black tea base! I find with a macciato sort of taste i want the depth of a black tea base. that being said this was still pretty tasty with the coffee bean coming through in the brew. I probably should have tried it as a latte but didn’t. heh. I wasn’t as creamy as i would have liked it to be. thanks though roswell! this was fun to try!
Angel sent this one my way and i’m afraid it’s lost on me. I found this was my least favourite of the greens because there wasn’t much of a taste that i could discern and i wasn’t blown away like i was with the dragonwell. Now, that being said, take my review with a grain of salt as i’m really much more of a black tea lover. I’m glad that i got the chance to try it though since you never know what you’ll love. :) thanks so much for sharing angel!
thanks for sending this one my way boychik i had a first cup of this a while back but forgot to log it or track it. so today i figured it was time to finish it off and write a proper note. Funnily enough, i get a bunch of fig taste of this one, but not much lemon like others have gotten. what i do like about this, is how the base blends with the fig. It’s a rather tasty tea and was nice alongside of my banana bread :) thanks boychik!
thanks again to YYZ for sending this one my way. this is a really interesting tea for me. I don’t get much in the way of chocolate notes, but i am getting a slight hint of malt with a bit of spiciness?? to it. i’m guessing that’s what YYZ describes as cinnamon/sandalwood. I actually am enjoying this because of it’s unique taste. it’s similar to other teas that i’ve had but slightly different. Just a good time :) thanks YYZ!
I’m so confused as to how/why there’s no rating for this one from me as i’ve had it a few times now. Oh well, picked this in the morning to kick things off because i had a house to clean up after having a bunch of ppl over on friday. We still have painting and things to do before we can start putting things on the wall and really getting in to the last of things with the move, but it’s slow going with everything being crazy at work and trying to actually enjoy our weekends occasionally lol.
this is a fantastic tea. I really like the malty tones in this one and the smoothness of the tea itself. Glad i picked up a bunch of this one from Teavivre, i really do love their black teas :)
