3068 Tasting Notes
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 :)
I figured I’d start the new year with a new matcha flavour for my morning smoothie! Ill post a proper review later at some point but man this is a fantastic! I was pushed into getting this by a few of the reviews on here by someone who’s name escapes me at the moment. I added just a touch of vanilla matcha to this smoothy just to make it a bit creamier and delicious. Th blueberry flavour in this is super intense and spot on to real blueberries. There really isn’t any artificial taste to this, which I was worried about after the pear fiasco. This was also distinctive flavouring since I’ve found with the fruit matches, robust seems to bee just a smidge too much for me. In the creamier, coffee, chocolate flavours I could totally probably push it to “there’s matcha in here” though I tend to stick to robust :)
Anyway wonderful start to the new year!
New Years sip down! Yay for a new year of teas, old and new!
Happy new year everyone!
Logging for posterity
Working on the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with stacy and i’m super excited about it. Added a bit of spices to the sample she sent me and made my other half try it. It looks like he and i are in agreement on the whole hibiscus thing – sorry steepsterites, this blend will have them…in small amounts! for extra tangy rhubarb goodness :)
Anyway cinnamon was a success…nutmeg…well i’m not sure i added enough so I will leave that to the master blender Stacy heh
So i’m not really getting the bubbly out of this one but it is a really nice white tea. I don’t drink too many whites because i find them on the lighter side of things. The berry flavouring in this one, however, is quite nice.
Man this is tasty tasty. I’s not overly sweet in your face kinda tasty, but it is delicious! I really like the flavour of this one from kally tea. the cocoa isn’t strong but it blends really nicely with the caramel. I also like that this isn’t a black tea :)
mmmmmm i really like this one. It’s sweet and tangy and vanilla and orange and wheeeee! Hold on there lil’ lady. Yeah that’s right. it’s work from home day and i’m in a giddy (up) mood! lol alrighty then…now that i got that out of my system….for a herbal blend this is pretty darn rootin’ tootin’ tasty! and no, no i haven’t been watching toy story 2. anyway, i digress. I do love me some orange and cream. I’m looking forward to trying this as a cold brew in the summer :)
