6403 Tasting Notes
my flavoured tea for the day…my headaches seem to have finally stopped today so i really do think the past three days have been the result of the weather. which really sucks because i should NOT be susceptible that much. i am finally getting to try this one out on it’s own and man it is deeeeelicious! I need to have a cup of this alongside the caramel/toffee tea from Damman Freres as i think this one might actually win out for me. i know, i know! that’s how yummy this one is! :)
so torn. On one hand, this is one of the oldest of my teas and i need to drink it up. On the other hand.. it’s out of stock on verdant’s website which means if i DO finish it off…i’m out of luck until it comes back. decisions, decisions! oh man…what to do… for now, i still have a few cups before i have to stop drinking it or just go all in! :)
farewell you delicious tea. We WILL meet again…soon! I had the last little bit of this today in an effort to get at least a couple sipdowns in for the past couple of days. I feel like i’ve taken weeks off from sipdowns and now it’s time to get back on the sipdown bandwagon – especially since i lose a week in April. I love this tea a whole lot! I really like that it’s not a black tea..but it is…but it’s not but it IS…but it’s really NOT… yep.
dexter also sent this one my way…and i guess if this tea is trying to live up to it’s potion, it worked since this tastes not so good. Albeit, it wasn’t a dump it down the drain tea…but the ingredients didn’t really blend harmoniously in this one. i think in part it’s also because i’m not overly a fan of intensly minty teas. i need there to be other things to really counter balance the mint. no matter what kind of mint it is. that being said, still glad to have tried it! :)
Final Count: 134 (9 more to go + whatever comes in this month)
dexter sent this one my way and i’m glad she did. I actually rather enjoyed this one and would consider picking up more of it in future if the opportunity presented itself. It’s more of a fall kinda tea for me though, given that it[‘s a blend of chai’s. However, unlike a lot of adagio teas, there is actually life in this tea rather than that same underlying “taste” that many adagio teas have. thanks dex!
after my failure with irish cream cheesecake, i pulled this one out to have a cup of. Keychange was awesome enough to send this my way which was great since i was out! I still really enjoy this cup of tea. It was one of the first taiwanese teas that i had and it remains one that i love. I didn’t manage to get through ALL my butiki teas today, but it was fun revisiting as many as i could to try them all out again. It also brings me one step closer to a few sipdowns, which means i can place another order soon! haha Lemon macaron and hello sweetie..you will be mine!
eep. i am not having luck with this one today. Brewed up a cup of this and it is bitter and not a happy time. I’ll have to give this another try and see if i can find that sweet spot, but so far this just isn’t working for me. Which makes me a little sad since the concept seems like something i should really enjoy.
