5079 Tasting Notes
I’m not really sure what “shangri-la” is supposed to taste like..but i’m guessing it’s probably not this lol However, this is kind of tasty..but can’t quite place my finger on what i like about it.
I cold brewed this the other day and the initial sip was pretty hibiscus sour. So i added some sugar. and now? now it’s drinkable and delicious!
sipdown! i had some of this hot brewed earlier today and then cold steeped the rest. Let’s talk about how that was a bad idea. Don’t do it. I was hoping it would let the flavours come out a bit more…no such luck. Ah well, at least i enjoyed the hot steepings of this one, and i’m really glad to have crossed this off my list! thanks a bunch dinosara!
I wanted to try this one hot first….thank you Dexter3657! No tealogs on this one yet, but so far, this is pretty good as a hot brew. It’s not exactly “wild” cherry, but it IS cherry…and much closer to wild cherry than that medicinal cherry syrup flavour that is just WRONG in anything but medicine lol I actually think this would be a pretty decent one in summer, especially against a splash of lemonade!
thank you Dexter3657 (and possibly nxtdoor?) I haven’t had the time to add all the lovely teas dexter sent me in our swap but i figured if i tried a couple i could start getting them into my cupboard.
This is a pretty decent caramel rooibos. I don’t mind rooibos, so for me, i can get behind this one. It’s a bit less “full” than i’d like but overall, this is for sure one that can hang out in my cupboard! It’ll be nice when i can finally place an order myself with nmt co.
I honestly think this might be the first time i’ve ever had this in a real cup. like not a travel mug. it’s damn good…even if i always think of that scene in wayne’s world….
which you can find here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPkjljS1Cxk just in case you’re like my other half and had totally forgotten about this…
sipdown. nope nope nope nope nope nope nope. I could tell this wouldn’t be a tea for me as soon as i cut into the package. but i tried. and no. the rest is going in a box for terri. and tony. ’cause this is a tea for him….not me. but if you love earl greys…IGNORE MY REVIEW! since i suspect that many a fan of the EG would like this.
note to self. When you’re exausted and have trouble forming coherent sentences…stay away from new teas that you won’t be able to write about well anyway because you’re mentally challenged from the sheer stupidity of the world you work in. That about sums up my evening. This was from dinosara and i solemly swear that i am up to no good…oh wait i mean that i’ll write a better review the next time i write it. ;)
sipdown! sooo that makes 2 today? so i caught up from yesterday but have made no progress to getting my cupboard back to where it was before my samples came in…and then my swap from dexter…not to mention that i have 4 other packages yet to come in the mail (no terri…today i didn’t get my TTC order..i’m jealous of yours…but you should be jealous of my tea from dexter. so there. neeener neener boo boo).
this tea? uneventful. I think i’m not a huge fan of golden needle, rather than it being this tea if that makes sense? It’s a decent enough tea but there was no pizzazz…no fire! no deep radiating buurning deliciousness to wake me up, knock me over and steal the keys to my car…if i had one.
so yeah…decent, but not my favourite sort of tea. :)
