5578 Tasting Notes
While it’s well known that i’m not a huge fan of oolongs, this is one that i like a bunch. The strawberry cuts the oolongy taste out of the picture and makes it a refreshingly delicious cup of tea. It’s never something i’ll want all the time, but i for sure want this in my cupboard every now and then. I love that the strawberry isn’t overwhelmingly present and it’s not the least bit artificial. great tea teavivre!
sipdown! another tasty tea for this morning. I suspect the afternoon will be busy so i want to make sure i get a bunch of liquid in me before that happens. That way i can always toss some water in front of myself if it’s busy as it’s a bit more no fuss than tea haha. I like this one, but it’s not a restock for me. Maybe an occasional purchase as a sample just to rotate it through my cupboard but it just doesn’t wow me like some of the other teas i have. Nothing wrong with it – it’s delicious and i enjoy every last drop that i have but it’s just not a staple :)
pulled this one out this morning for a nice first start to the day. Working from home again, and likely tomorrow just to make sure i don’t over exert myself and land up even more sick. I love the blending of the teas in this one, though likely not a restock since i can just pick up the individual teas :)
sipdown! (169) not too shabby for being sick, not concentrating on sipdowns and having awesome tea friends make my cupboard explode on the day before the end of the year. lol 30 more days to see if i can get down at 150 just for fun!
This was another tea from the lovely missB I’m not a huge fan of eggnog – something about the texture makes me NOT want anything to do with it. But i DO like creamy, delicious vanilla type flavours – which this most certainly is. I haven’t had eggnog in years, so i have no clue how close to eggnog taste this is…but it’s what i want eggnog to be like – creamy and delicious with no funny weird textures :) thanks for sending this my way missB! I quite like it, and it’s not necessarily something i’d have picked myself :)
Edit: i Started the year having tried 1398 teas since i joined steepster…total as of the end of today 6 new ones! (1404) Let’s see if i can make it another few hundred by 2015 haha
sipdown! this was from a sampler a while back and i finally got round to trying this last one. Sadly i was hoping for more from these little packages. I think i’m better off sticking to tea that isn’t “designed for cold brewing”. Oh well, it was a great intro to some of tea fortes teas. This one is white and ginger…but not really pear. Instead there’s a weird taste to it that i’m not a fan of.
nom nom nom nom nom drinking tea while playing board games and being sick. My other half is willing to join me in a year of taking 1 picture a day of something that makes us smile/we’re grateful for/we appreciate etc… so here’s to trying to keep that up for a whole year :) Anyway, this tea? love it. so glad i picked up 100g of it…though it’s going fast!
sipdown on this one as well, though i’m sad to see it go. The rest is off to Terri so that she can try this! I quite enjoyed this, though i think unlike others i don’t have a dying need to see this one around as a permanent blend. I’m happy to have tasted it and experienced it but Stacy has so many others i love more :)
