7677 Tasting Notes
not sure what possessed me to pick this one up. I don’t like eggnog, don’t like white chocolate and i’m not a huge fan of david’s….but pick it up, i did and i brewed this up last night while watching a movie with my other half. I’m not sure how i feel about this…it’s creamy…but it’s much more white chocolate to me than eggnog, which is maybe better for me given my intense dislike of eggnog and my only semi hatred of white chocolate…which just isn’t chocolate if you ask me :) I’ll finish the sample of this that i picked up, but that’s as far as that will go heh

i picked up a little of this yesterday along with a couple other teas from david’s. As most of you know, i’m not overly a fan of their teas but i’ll try from occasionally just to see if there’s anything worthwhile. So far, i think i’ve found 2 teas? that i ever bought more than 50g of haha. This one isn’t bad, but on some levels, even though it’s got a weird taste to it, i like the apple cider tea a little better. I’ll drink the rest of this, but on the whole there isn’t much about this one that says BUY MORE OF ME! apple, little hint of vanilla…sweet. decent but pretty average.
i actually made just this on it’s own tonight… last cup of the evening. This one makes for a richer, more dark chocolate cup than the herbal infusions version which is a little lighter. Works for me though, since i want my cacao to be strong and delicious and i just can’t get behind herbal infusions anymore with all the trouble friends have had. so yay for a new source of cacao!

oh campfire blend…your tea is delicious and the aroma protects me from the nastiness of my other half’s farts tonight :) yeah… worst smell ever! On that note…had a cup of this while we watched a show before i pass out. Almost 10pm so i can finally go to bed after being up since 5:30am friday morning. go go work weekends! i think i forgot to restock this one so i might end up needing another verdant order soon… almost through this tin!
smoke scent? check. smooth taste? check. overly smoky? negative! hahaha… so this is one of those lapsangs where a lot of it’s bite is in the aroma. Actually drinking this, it’s clearly a smokey tea but nowhere as smokey as i expected it to be based on smell alone. I’m looking forward to seeing how stacy blends this one with banana! :) glad i was able to pick up a bit of this one in my order!
i was drinking this most of the morning but sadly my taste buds are not cooperating today or maybe it’s my brain. the taste of this one is super familiar and yet, i can’t place it. very frustrating. I’m going to have to order more of this one because it is super delicious, refreshing….yeah that’s all i’ve got for now heh
Cup from this morning in between special dark steepings heh. going to be a loooooong day. i still hold that River Tea does fruit teas much better than their black straight teas. that being said, this one isn’t too bad. there’s a maltiness to this one that goes along with the slight bitterness that i kinda like from time to time.
