3675 Tasting Notes
SIPDOWN! This is a weird tea. I feel like i’m sipping on a cup of sweetened veggies, something like carrots and spinach. I think i’d actually prefer it sans sugar since it’s the sweetness that’s throwing me off.
I used about 12oz of water and steeped this a little longer than 5 mins. I don’t feel the need to buy this again ever, but i don’t dislike this. I just don’t tend to prefer green teas. Interesting to say the least.
(on a random other note…the name of this and the way it looks, totally took me off on a tangent imagining this as a little plant monster that explodes out of it’s ball state screaming it’s name JIAOGULAN!)
I really wanted to try this cold brew but this morning i just wanted to have a cup of this hot. so now it’s gone, but it’s on my re-order next time i hit upton, even if it’s just a sample size for when i need something like this. My taste buds are a little off, but not totally. I took an allergy pill to see if that helps and it seems to have. So the sipdowns continue! gotta catch up, especially with my swap that arrived bring a bunch of new teas!
SIPDOWN! just wish i was more tea productive today. Sadly i’m still at work because of issues. my other half even came all the way down to meet me after work so we could go out tonight. and now….he’s left because i’m stuck on a stupid call with technology because yes folks… MORE PROBLEMS! i swear to god it’s like no one knows anything. so i’m sitting here….drinking my tea….hungry for dinner….wishing i could go home. oh and i’m on call all weekend in case we have more issues…and i have to be on a call at 5am on monday. woot woot
It’s a good thing this tea is tasty enough to cut through my wonky tastebuds today ‘cause it’s a good cuppa at the moment.
yep…wonky taste buds but i won’t let that stop me too much today! had this early in the morning but man it’s been busy again. I’m pretty sure people out there are losing faith in us. But i digress! go team AMAZING! that being ME of course…singlehandedly dealing with issues, testing for our release, backing up 2 people including my boss, getting my own work done! and all with a smile on my face and tea in my hand! woot woot!
I think my taste buds are a little “off” today. I really hope that this is a temporary thing. I need my sipdowns! lol but clearly i don’t want to drink tea if it’s going to taste icky, especially if it’s a new tea.
This one tastes a bit weird but nothing that makes me want to spit it out or anything. I know that’s me though, so no worries heh.
ooonnnnneeee more cup tonight. I figure at this rate i’ll be waking up every 5 mins to go pee as it is. So the thing i love about swaps? it’s an excuse to go through your cupboard again and revisit teas that you might have forgotten about. I am still a fan of this even if it IS a decaffeinated tea. It’s a pretty decent lychee tea.
253 – 9 days to go! (so not happening but man is this incentive to go through my cupboard!)
SO i have to say that this one smells wonderful…and then you let it steep forever and it’s fine. and then..you drink it and i kid you not, it totally tastes like the liquid left over at the end of a fruit cup…only not nearly as sweet. My other half tried it and was like “man…i totally half expect to see one of those cherries floating around in the tea” and that ladies and gentlemen, sums up this tea. Love it lol
la la la testing and hating the people i am backing up this week. la la la Figured i’d better stop drinking all that black tea…so a few rounds of rooibos are coming up! I still like this one even if it’s not the most amazing incredible rooibos tea ever. The flavour is nice, it’s tasty….i can let it steep for 20 mins and it’s just fine lol you know..by accident of course lol
