4034 Tasting Notes

drank Caramel-Toffee by Dammann Freres
4034 tasting notes

thank you shmiracles I had this one about a zillion years ago today. It is divine! I absolutely love this one! the black base is nice, and smooth and just serves to complement the wonderful buttery caramel goodness that is this cup of tea. i really have nothing more to say than this week has been full of delicious!

drank Black Cherry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4034 tasting notes

Treated myself to a matcha smoothie this morning, largely in part from the fact that i just picked up 15 new matchas that i’m not allowed to open until i get through some of the ones i already have open….that’s in addition to the 5 or so that are already sitting there unopened…waiting for me from previous orders lol. At least i know that i can drink matcha all night long on satuday night if i so choose.

Still enjoying this one quite a bit, unlike other flavours that waned over time. :)

haha yeah i haven’t been drinking nearly as much matcha as before. Which is unfortunate because i have probably close to 30 in my cupboard heh.

sipdown! So looking forward to the weekend to really tackle my smaller sizes of tea that can be finished off relatively quickly. Especially since i have some new teas that i received in swaps and from orders that i really want to try but have to wait. go go self imposed restrictions!

Another lovely tea that Terri shared with me that i enjoyed. Confirming my suspicions that i really do enjoy assams. :)

drank Butterscotch by Simpli-special
4034 tasting notes

sooo i shouldn’t be drinking tea tonight. I’m so exausted that i can barely think straight. Had a small cup of this one courtesy of kittylovestea Looking forward to meeting this tea again when i’m not so sleepy…

…also? 282 teas…crap. lol

Fuzzy_Peachkin

You go through so many teas in one day! How do you keep up the pace?

Chelle

More like the yellow butterscotch candies or pudding? I am hoping like pudding!

Sil

Fuzzy….not that many if you think about how long my days are….up by 5:30….in bed around 11 to midnight. Just wait until Saturday….I have to pull an all nighter for testing so I’m drinking tea most of the day and then into the next day lol course then ill likely crash on Sunday but yay! Actually looking forward to being able to sit with my teas for an extended sitting…might be able to get through some of my puerh in the morning :)

Thank you kittylovestea for this one! I totally didn’t steep this one for long enough tonight…it’s been a VERY long day and i’m semi out of it. Long story short i’m glad i have more of this to try again. I can tell this will be one that i enjoy quite a bunch from the small cup i had tonight. Just need to steep it for longer to bring out the flavours even more!

drank Piña Colada by PureAromaTea
4034 tasting notes

So I figured that I’d try this one out as a cold brew since as a hot brew it was quite delicious. As a cold brew this is nearly as tasty! I say nearly because the coconut overpowers the pineapple a little more in the cold brew. Th pineapple is still there but the balance is just a little more off than the hot brew. I think this would make a fantastic cocktail if there is? Sch a thing as pineapple liquor to add to this cold brew. Either that or maybe a splash of lime….lemon? Not sure yet. Either way this is a really nice blend :)

Preparation
140 °F / 60 °C 7 min, 45 sec

drank Mango Sunrise by Yumchaa
4034 tasting notes

Thank you hallieod for this one! This isn’t half bad. I want to try this as a cold brew since that’s part of why I wanted to try it. As a hot brew this is a decent green tea. The mango flavouring isn’t artificial, but it is a little light. Glad to see this one, and looking forward to the next attempt as a cold brew! :)

I haven’t yet decided how I feel about this one. Thank you Shmiracles for this one! I’m going to refrain from rating this one, because I got busy and was unable to really take notes. I know that mousse au chocolat is still my favourite of the two but that’s as far as I can recall. This one impressed me less but it wasn’t bad at all!

drank Premium Taiwanese Assam by Butiki Teas
4034 tasting notes

Sometimes you just need an old favourite. This morning was one of those days. I had let the wonder of this tea become a mere shadow of its true deliciousness. I’m glad I dug this out earlier…just needed a reminder of how much I love it!

TheTeaFairy

Very well said, Sil! Glad it worked its magic for you :-)

Chelle

I can’t wait to try this one, in the mail!

Sil

This might be my favourite tea….if not, it’s tied for first through fourth place heh

Rachel J

Yay for Butiki and their amazing selection. :)

Bio

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.
