3065 Tasting Notes
Bumped the rating on this one a bit. Steeped this for about 6 mins. While the tea now leaves my mouth a little dry, there’s much more interesting flavour things happening. There’s a sweetness to this, and almost an appley taste….and almost a caramel taste. Really interesting to say the least. This might be good with a bit of milk later.
Oh man…this tea…steeped in vodka (grey goose)…added to cran/raspberry juice with some gingerale is mighty tastea! I am going to miss this when i run out of my vodka infused tea…or is that tea infused vodka. Either way the blueberry-ness of this tea makes for a delicious blueberry cocktail!
I can understand why this tea is popular. I like that the floral notes aren’t really strong, so it really is more of a green cherry tea. However, as is often the case, the “weight” of the tea just isn’t enough for me. I love thick, full bodied delicious teas. I still think this is a nice tea but it’s nothing i need to pick up again. I do really like the cherry taste, so now i just need t find a cherry black tea :) or maybe a roasted oolong… stacy i’m looking at you! lol
mmmm decupboarding this to give it to a work colleague who made the mistake of saying to me today “tea! i need to go buy tea!” uh no…what do you want…i’ll bring some samples tomorrow lol.
This was a lovely tea from Frank that i still enjoy but i’m hoping will inspire my workmate to order teas with me lol
mmmm second morning tea! I need to stop looking at the internet for tea. I keep wanting to place more orders and i REALLY don’t need more tea. I think part of the draw for me though, is a)getting mail and b)having new things to try out! I’ve made a resolution this year though to try and get my cupboard down to 100 teas by black friday of 2013 so that I can place a few orders at that time lol
This tea is still one delicious tea! I find it soothing and love how stacy has captured the cantalope flavour. It’s not wonder this one was winning awards. Still really happy i took a chance and picked this one up even if the name totally threw me off.
This is a delicious tea! I’m really happy that I got to try this one from Teavivre. It’s a beautiful tea. The first sips of this give way to a medium malty tea, that tapers off with notes of honey. I’m looking forward to seeing how the resteeps work out with this one. I’d rank it up there with my other favourite blacks.
mmmmmm morning matcha smoothie! Opted for something a little fruitier today to continue my quest to get my cupboard in order heh. While i really enjoy this matcha, i think i prefer the blueberry now that I’ve tried it. The flavours are a little more delicious and intense in the blueberry. The strawberry is still a yummy flavour but i’m not sure i need to keep it around on a permanent basis. I’d rather treat myself to this flavour from time to time.
Evening tea before bed as I need to g up for work tomorrow early. Back to the grind! Had a blast this evening playing games with friends and catching up. On the plus side as well, one of my friends would like to come over for tea in the near future so she can raid my tea stash and samples some of my matcha. She’s been looking for a few good teas to get back into drinking tea on a regular basis in non bagged form. Yay!
Backlog – had this as my afternoon tea on my way out to friends. I sometimes feel like I should feel embarrassed but I have started not leaving our house without one or two tea tumblers full of tea even if its to go to a friends place. It’s not that I don’t want their hospitality, but none of my friends really drink tea so if I don’t bring any, then I I get none! I wanted a solid black with flavours to tie me over until the evening so I chose this one from my stash, if only to help drink down some of th teas I have from butiki’s before the next order is placed :)
Again, this one didn’t fail to disappoint :)!
Bumped the rating a bit but still not a tea I need to order again. It’s not really chocolatey but it is coffee like. Added a bit of cream and that made it tastier too :). Ah well, can’t love ’em all :)
