3713 Tasting Notes
Raritea had this today and mentioned it being a little astringent, so i back off the steeping time just to see if i could hit the sweet spot.
This reminds me a little of stacy’s almond tea, but without the over all great tea base. Not that i liked that one of hers, but i could appreciate the tea base. :) This one has an ok flavour to it, but it’ll never be my favourite. I’m glad half the bag is going to Kittenna AND it was free. I think there are a number of you out there who would like this one a bunch, but i’m fairly picky about my almond teas, i’ve found and don’t like ones that remind me of almond extract…which this one does slightly. Still though, Thanks go out to Herbal Infusions for adding a bit of extra fun to the Toronto Tea Festival!! I’ll be sharing my half with a few ppl just to help spread the love :)
Soooo lazy tealog for me since i’m in swap package mode. This one is off “somewhere” for some “one(s)” to have and try. haha. This one smells like banana medicine upon opening, but as a latte it wasn’t half bad…it cut through the medicinal factor and was more just a banana creamy drink.
I still think about pineapple matcha…. sigh
Hello Captain! You know? I’m ok with this one. I think i’ve figured out that the adagio ceylon is NOT my preferred black base, but it’s not terrible in this one. Yes there’s a rooibos presence, but it’s not dominating. I do get the almond flavour, though it’s pretty subtle. There’s a hint of the chocolate…i guess? i think? but it’s not very strong. Do i like this tea? it’s alright…but it’s NOT captain Jack to me…and it’s not quite what it claims to be.. :)
3500 Tasting notes. I figured Martha was a good one for that milestone, since she certainly walked a long long way. This was one of the few that in the sampler that i thought i would enjoy, and i was right. It’s good to know that in looking at the ingredients for each of the blends, i was pretty accurate in terms of how i figured i would enjoy the teas. There are a few there that changed order a little, but not much.
This one is an average blend that is on the sweet side, but not overly so. Just a pretty decent cup of caramel sort of black tea. Not too shabby!
I seriously love this tea. I don’t love whoever edited the tea and removed the lot number. Sometimes when multiple lots are in cupboards you need that information. So i beg you..whoever you are, please don’t remove lot numbers! even if that lot never comes back…
This was one of the two teas i packed up in a hurry this morning when i discovered my plan for getting work done and drinking tea at home was not allowed because of my computer issues. Every time i have this, i’m reminded of just how much i love these teas…
I believe this one was from Terri (or possibly Dexter) and since i am starting to amass puerh samples, i really need to take some time to focus on drinking them up. I had this one several times over the course of this morning and over all this is a really nice puerh. I sadly, have since not only spilled water on my notes that i was taking on the steepings but have to get running to work… soooo there will be a better tasting note in future. promise. I have enough to play with again :)
sooo not my day today. I was supposed to work from home and now my remote access is having issues so i may very well be going in to work only to have my computer taken away from me for the rest of the day and be unable to get work done anyway lol. I had this earlier in the morning and it’s a sipdown. I need to focus on the teas from the ladies in our BBB box since i know that Terri is itching to send it on to me. heh I enjoyed this one a lot, and it makes me want to check out more of the teas at california tea house. thanks tastybrew!
I figured i should have this one before I get is over to Courtney in our swap. I picked this one up on a whime because they had a decaf caramel creme but no normal caramel creme. So i bought 50 of each, and figured i’d make my own at the least. Plus this way, i get three teas for 2 haha. I will need to play with this one a bit more because i only let it steeps for 2 mins, since that’s what Tea G. suggests. I’m wondering if steeping it a little longer will make it more bitter or just bring out the cream.
At least the cream flavour in this one tastes really nice. it’s subtle but it’s delicious. If this is what i can expect from the other few that i picked up from Tea G, then i will be a happy camper! Hope you enjoy it courtney! and if you don’t, that’s ok too haha
