7966 Tasting Notes

I adore the base of this tea. However, somewhere along the way, the cheescake in this one gets lost and i’m left with a blend that is graham crackers away from my Ruby Pie :) This isn’t a bad blend, but not one of my favourite from Stacy. I vastly prefer the grasshopper cheesecake blend :)

This is one I missed. This is the blend that gave me the idea that I should be blending some flavored black teas with ripened pu-erh.

drank Minted Monkey by Tippy's Tea

i think my mouth has trouble with these teas from tippy. This one is more chocolate than mint for me today…but i can almost see where folks are comparing it to an after eight. I would need a buttload more mint for that to be a true comparison for me :) That being said, this is still a tasty tea and one i might consider once i finish up the last of my peppermint patty from stacy…not that this is a herbal, but there also isn’t really room in my cupboard for a huge number of mint teas!

I like the base of this tea…and i think it for sure has potential. It makes me excited to try other teas from tippy once i get my cupboard under control. Thanks for sharing Cavo!

drank Raspberry Cocoa by Tippy's Tea
7966 tasting notes

today, the raspberry is more present so maybe the flavour just hadn’t disseminated throughout the entire bag? Today this is very much a raspberry tea…but now it’s missing the cocoa lol. Still a decent tea, but needed a little sweetner to take the edge off the raspberry flavour :) thanks for sharing cavo!

Another from what-cha that is sweet and smooth. These Georgia teas are interesting to say the least though i should probably revisit them on a day when i’m not sick. If nothing else, these teas are work looking in to – the sample sizes are pretty large and allow for a few cups of tea brewed in different ways. OR…..for sharing. I like sharing haha. overall this was a pleasant cup, but just didn’t rock my socks off. Happy with it though!

whaaat no other reviews on this one? well my review won’t be much help to everyone as i got distracted with work and let this get cold. I will say, that like other what-cha teas, this is very smooth with no astringency. i don’t know if this would float to the top of my must have tea list, but i’d be happy to have this in my cupboard anytime!

this is not the breakfast blend for me. there’s an astringency here that i don’t like…though i have for sure found it present in other breakfast blends. It’s just not a taste that i like…especially not in the morning. I prefer bold, rich, deep teas lol. The rest of this is off to terri to try though as i suspect she might enjoy this one.

I haven’t tried a Scottish Breakfast Tea yet, though I’ve heard they are actually stronger than English or Irish Breakfast Teas…not this one though, huh?

Sil

this is lighter in taste to me

Mike

Cool, I’ll have to look around for others. Have you tried any other Scottish Breakfast Teas?

drank Ceylon Golden Tips Black by What-Cha

I didn’t realise this should be brewed at NOT boiling, so i almost ruined my cup…thankfully i noticed it at the last minute. This is an interesting tea…it’s sweet and slightly malty but not in an in your face sort of malt. I don’t think i’ve ever had a ceylon gold tip sort of tea, making this a neat one to try.

this one was….interesting today. i think i need to have it again when i’m not sick. I remember tasting the flavours almost individually…similar to what i think variatea said. Sometimes it was coffee…othertimes butiki’s pumpkin. not my favourite, but not sure if that’s a product of being sick.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
