3080 Tasting Notes
Wheee! It’s a good morning when you can find the time to down a bunch of tea to take a few moments to relax while organising your tea cupboard…. Yes come later this morning, my tea cupboard will be organised and my steepster cupboard will be completely up to date. Presents will be wrapped, house will be clean and i’ll have time to run over to buy myself rubber boots, pick up groceries and any last minute items before my parents get here this afternoon/evening!
This tea? i, sharing with my parents as well. Given that i have 4oz, I’m thinking i can spare a bit :)
Backlogging from yesterday.
While I was browsing Majesteas for some ideas, I tried a cup of this tea. THIS is what I want Della Terras orange spice teas to taste like. There is a great blend of orange and spices that mix together to let both roll over your tongue. mmmm tasty!
THIS is the hardest tea to part with since its one of my favs from Stacy. BUT, it’s all for a good cause…if my parents love the teas then maybe they’ll place larger orders with Stacy that I can have some of lol
Sip down! Another tea for my parents tea package….I’m going to be hopped up on tea in no time flat trying everything before I decide whether my parents are getting it. They’re pretty picky but should enjoy this one a bunch since Stacy’s got a great thing happening here :)
Sip down because the rest of this is going to my dads tea package for Christmas. They finally want to get away from red rose so I’m putting together a giant tea package for my parents to try a bunch of things. :) ill miss you tea! Likely not a reorder though because Stacy has others that I love oh so much more!
Soooooo had a cup of this in an effort to wake up. Turns out it didn’t help and I’m falling asleep at my desk. Tme to get some sleep for a long day tomorrow lol.
Tasty lemon tea to end me off to bed.
on the 9th day of christmas tea swap, Alphakitty gave to us…some delicious toffee and a custom blended tea. I’m going to have this one again when i’m not so exhausted as i’m pretty sure i goofed on the steeping. I really did enjoy getting to try a new tea out – especially since it’s a custom creation! I’m not quite ready to tackle that kind of amazingness myself :)
Thank you Alphakitty!
I think my tastebuds are out of wack with everyone else. This is NOT a tea i enjoy, but I’ll be happy to pass on to someone to try out as clearly others enjoy this :) The chocolate is less artificial than most of Della Terra’s chocolate teas for me but it’s just note a tasty cup.
I had this, what seems like 1298372984238874 hours ago. Lat minute errands to run before my parents get here. Took this one with me and it did the trick, though there want enough of it IMO :)
Thank you raritea for this sample!
So truth be told I don’t think I’ve ever had “normal” earl grey. I may have had one other variant of earl grey but from what I recall there was a hell of a lot of bergamot in it. This tea though? I actually quite enjoy the balance between the black currant and the bergamot. I Think I’d prefer drinking this one over franks black currant bai mu Dan. :) I had this first thing in the morning though I generally prefer straight black tea because I have a ton of running around to do. My parents have decided to come up over Christmas so I need to pick up a few things for them. Not to mention just general shopping before everyone panics because the stores are closing for a whole day!
Good start to the morning :) thanks again raritea!
