5599 Tasting Notes
my new years day plans have been ruined by being sick. So much for getting to drink tea and play board games with friends all day. Might just need to make it up by “forcing” my other half to play games with me all day. Not nearly as much fun as gaming with more than the two of us but i really don’t want to get anyone else sick.
I had a cup of this in the morning. I’m struggling with working today so i may call it quits sooner rather than later.
i had a cold brew of this one and i’m thinking my tastebuds may be having issues with this one so i’ll hold off on rating it. The aroma is undeniably peachy but the taste comes across as overly floral. I’m thinking it’s just the sick factor so i’ll try this again once i’m better :) thanks terri!
…aaaand more tea is here. now up to 185 with a few more things on their way from what i understand lol. Oh well. saw a tasting note for this one and it reminded me that i have lots of this. Figured it would be a decent cup for this evening before i pull out the herbal blends to finish the night off. still enjoying this one quite a bit.
Finally got around to trying this one, though it’s a bit silly given that i’m sick. I wanted a vanilla tea though so i pulled this one out. it’s for sure a black tea with a dash of vanilla – the base, as angrboda mentioned is heavily present. I’m ok with that because i like being able to taste the tea bases. :)
finally sat down to have some of this, which is decidedly stupid given that i’m sick but whatever! it’ my tea and i can drink it when i want :) This is quite delicious, though i do taste hints of floral notes in the background, making this less enjoyable than some of the recent fauchon teas that i’ve tried. I don’t hate this though and the almond flavouring is delicious! I’ll have to give them one another shot once i’m sure my tastebuds are back to normal heh
sipdown! (182) my cupboard WOULD have been at about 155 today and I easily would have made it to my dec 31 goal however i received my package from Miss B yesterday and now i’m up at 182 haha. that may change a little if i get enough energy to pull my swaps together that need to go out but i’ll consider my goal achievable and just aim for 140 by the end of January. I had a rare thought that i would try to get my cupboard down by 10 every month in 2014 so that by November i’d be able to order 60 teas and still be under 100 haha. I’ll probably still aim for that, along side of my goal of not having teas older than 10 months in my cupboard. :)
I had the last couple of bags of this tea as a latte and i’m glad that i did. it makes this a MUCH better cup of tea by making it a creamier, stronger chocolate tasting tea. Not a restock for me, but it was tasty to drink.
