3065 Tasting Notes
mmmmm not too many entries for this, though I most assuredly have had almost all of it. The problem is, that i tend to use this as an addition to other matchas in my smoothies. English toffee coffee? Chocolate coffee? french vanilla coffee? Caramel coffee? :) I find that the coffee matcha does a great job of cutting through the sweet and bringing that balance to my smoothies.
Today though.. it was two smoothies! first the straight eng toffee one and then this one! Maybe tonight will be a french vanilla pumpkin pie latte :)
Hold on folks…it’s going to be a long day! I had a screaming headache last night that nothing seemed to cure. I ended up being awake until about 4am at which point I finally passed out from being utterly exhausted. Of course that meant I was up 2 hours later to go to work. My headache’s still there, so I’m hoping i can convince it to lay low for the rest of the day. Why you might ask? Because it’s also our christmas party this evening and that’s going to make today super long!
So i figured i’d kick things off this morning with a bang! English Toffee Smoothie! Followed by a coffee smoothie (short note to come soon). I prefer to mix them in together, but figured what the hell since it’s going to be a really long day. I’m hoping i can sneak in a quick matcha latte this evening too before i have to come back downtown for the shin dig.
English Toffee match…you are sweet creamy deliciousness that makes me smile.
I needed this after a very long day that ended in a very frustrating evening. Still digging the cinnamon intensity but likely won’t re-order as i now prefer the strawberry pie. :)
I needed a pick me up this afternoon as I’ve spent the entire day re-writing other people’s crappy writing. Not that these notes should be any indication of my writing skills. Here I get to relax! :) Still loving the amazing job stacy did with this one capturing grapefruit.
Even slightly cold this tea is pretty darn good. I picked up 2oz of it when it was on sale and that should about do me for the next while. Apparently this fall/winter was the year of trying out pumpkin teas. Prior to this i pretty much refused all things pumpkin. Yay for samplers that let me try this first!
grrrr steepster hates me. 3rd time trying to post. long story short : yum.
Sadly today’s smoothie didn’t turn out quite as aweesome as the first. There’s a delicate balance of getting the banana into the freezer before it gets too ripe..but ripe enough. lol today i have an over ripe banana which always DOMINATES the smoothie no matter what. Still tasty, but not as strawberry like as I wanted this morning.
Tried this tonight as well and it was a little disappointing. The initial smell is divine and the first few sips were a wonderful orange chocolate. And then I let it sit for a bit while watching a show. Apparently the brownies stole my flavour while I wasn’t looking. BOO! Ill try this again later to see if I can figure out the best way to brew this one.
Really? No tasting notes for this? Man this is delicious! It smells heavenly and so very much like lychee.
Hard to believe this is a decaffeinated tea. It’s peachy and lychee and smooth and delicious! Yeah so my words are failing me this evening but I’m SUPER glad that I picked this up when I was in San Francisco :)
