6485 Tasting Notes
Another one from terri, that is still really tasty, but just slightly less so than the other couple i’ve had. This one leaves an after taste in my mouth that i’m less a fan of. HOWEVER, i wouldn’t turn this one down, nor would i discount the possibility of picking it up again because i can see it being just what i need on cooler winter mornings :) strong, smooth with a little reminder left over of what i was drinking heh. thanks terri!
mmmm i figured that i’d better start my morning off with a few cups of bold/stronger tea. I’ve got to go wedding dress shopping today and i need something to get me through it. I hate this sort of thing, though i’m sure i’l have fun with my friend and her 6 month old lol those bridal ppl have no idea what they’re in for! thanks again to terri for sharing this one with me. I think i’d be likely to pick this one up again in the future. I still love lord petersham, but this is a pretty tasty one as well
this is how i make VariaTEA and Cavocorax come pick up the first wave of their boxes…by drinking all our shared teas soon so they show up on their dashboard lol. I pulled this one out yesterday to drink up and man…sooo good. I generally am not a fan of coconut teas but this one is really creamy and delicious. it’s even better having it “fresh” since the last time i had it, it was via justjames so i let it sit a bit longer before trying it as part of all my samples. I’m seriously glad james created this one AND shared it with me so that i could then promptly order it when it was live hahaha
Final Count yesterday: 144
backlog from yesterday as i didn’t get home until late since we went out to try and get me a little bit of the long weekend since i get to work sunday and monday. GO GO 25+ hrs of over time a week. FML. on the upside? extra money for moving, since i think we’re going to do it…and less guilt when i place tea orders hahaha. this one was terri’s addition to the BBB Box and once i’ve enjoyed, though not as intensly as some of the others from YS. Rest is off to Cavo…mostly because now i know she has to pick the box up hahahahahaha
excuse me, coming through, drool city! last stop – CHIN!…..
Seriously…this was tucked away from when i picked it up in vancouver but since i have to divy up cavo’s teas, i’m allowed to open it! and open it i did… now i have to try not to drink it all because man oh man there is something i just love the crap out of in this tea. I SHOULD try it with milk again but tonight i just wanted it…NAO! and i’m in happy land.
Final Count: 145 yes..it’s gone up, my butiki order arrived, but before that i was down to 133! go me! So we’ll see how tomorrow goes and aim for….maybe 135 over the weekend? we’ll see…something like that haha
this is my placeholder note for the other sample that stacy sent us that i tried. It’s a taiwan tea and not up or around yet that i can find. I have to say, i was a fan! it had some malty notes, while still giving me that general "taiwan’ tea sort of feeling. For sure one that i’ll need to order more of to place with once i place my next order in uh…July? :)
I have a confession to make….not that she should mind but if she does, i’ll make it up to her… you see, i have a whole bunch of tea at my place…that belongs to other ppl. And most of the time, because they’re shared orders, it’s tea that i already have. But there are two teas currently in my house that are NOT MINE. not even kinda lol. OK well, as of today there are like 5…but the point is. I was going through those teas today to pull out the ones for Cavo and VariaTEA and i came across this tea…again. And the impish girl in me…the kind who puts boxes on her head and takes a picture just for fun…well she made me open the resealable bag and take out one of these teabags…and cold brew it.for tonight.
…and now i’m drinking it. and it’s delicious and i only feel kinda of guilty…but not REALLY guilty…because KITTENNA YOUR TEAS MISS YOU! (or rather they want to hang out with the 600 teas at your place…) lol
this tea? Cold brewed, is very barley with the watermelon in the back seat, but with a little sugar, it pops just enough to make this a really refreshing tea. the kind of tea i should have ordered yesterday lol but there will be future orders, and i’m thinking that this one? it’s going to have to be in that order… thanks kittenna even if it wasn’t voluntarily heh
Stacy sent this as a sample in our shared order and i figured i would try it again since i haven’t had it since my unfortunate time with it before stacy made me two friends. Well, i still don’t like this version lol there’s still that same bitterness that just feels off, though i’m thinking it’s more the base+ chocolate rather than the marshmallow…. now that i’ve had a chance to really get to know 2 friends for a while. :) thanks stacy!
