4923 Tasting Notes
YUM! thank you Little Red Cup for this generous sample! This was the tea to kick off my morning at work and man it did the trick. As with all keemuns, i added a splash of maple syrup and it was so very delicious with this tea. It’s a little smokier than some keemuns that i’ve had but since i’m ok with smokey, i was ok with this tea! YUM!that’s about all i remember from this morning. deliciously smokey and yummy and yay!
you know…i wish i didn’t have to say “well another one of those days” every day. at a certain point you look around and realise that every day is one of those god awful days and you just have to deal with it. :) Let’s see if i can remember what i had to drink today since i pretty much was at my desk from 7:30-6, minus one bathroom break. i hate issues.
I had this as a latte…it’s about the only way i’ll be finishing off this package. I can’t stand it as a straight tea, only a latte. BUT this at least helps me sipdown my 52 teas and work on that goal.
last tea of the evening and it’s a sipdown! Thus bringing my total at the end of the weekend to 220. 70 teas to drink up between now and black friday, ignoring the few swaps/samples that are on their way to me. 70 teas in 52 days. I can totally do this! While this tea is ok, it’s likely not a repurchase for me unless i need something to up my cart to free shipping or something. At the end of the day it’s really just a rooibosy ginger blend, and it’s less delicious than the blend from tao leaf tea that i like :) Thanks though Kaylee for sharing this one with me!
second last cup of the evening while watching some walking dead. I’ve got enough of this one for maybe another two cups and then it goes on the reorder list. I really like having this one around for low caffeine options. It’s also MUCH tastier than birthday cake from butiki imo as well heh. Love the peppermint and chocolate coming together with this one
I think perhaps, these Java Tea Co. teas are just not the tea for me. It’s not to much the tasting like coffee, since i do love a good coffee, but i just don’t like the way the flavours mesh together. Tastybrew sent this one my way, and while i don’t hate it, i don’t like it much and i’m trying not to keep teas around that i don’t like. So this is getting tossed in the swap box in case any of the girls here want to try it out. Maybe they’ll find a happy place with this one. Thanks though tastybrew! glad i got the chance to try all of these :)
I may have steeped this one at too high a temperature, but i still have some more to play with so that’s all good. This is another one from dinosara and it’s an interesting one. I’m not sure how i feel about it. I didn’t get much in the way of macaron from this, but i did get the raspberry flavouring, though it was more artificial than being close to real raspberries. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but i’m glad i have a little more to play with.
mmmmm… thank you dinosara I’ve been curious about this tea for a while now and she was kind enough to send some my way.
sheesh..stupid rogers interrupting my tasting note. Long story short, this tea appears to be one that lends itself to really coming together with a little sweetner and maybe some milk. I’ll let you know, since i opted to drink this cup on it’s own. I can sense the caramel in the background…not as present as i wanted it to be but i’ll try with some additions later!
sipdown! this was one from kaylee I opted to try this one since i should probably start drinking a few non caffeinated options now that it’s later in the day. As well, after locating a few teas in my cupboard that were actually gone – i’m super happy to say that i’m now back under where i started the weekend at before dinosara’s swap was added to my cupboard!
I quite like this one…it’s sweet, doesn’t taste overly like rooibos and it’s just a smooth tasting experience. Thanks kaylee!
