7440 Tasting Notes
I’m gone until tues night on business so i’m trying to get in a few cups of tea this morning before i need to head to the airport. I’m going to be behind in my sipdowns as a result so i need to get at least a couple in! Technically i only need to get to 90 this month, but i’m pushing hard for 85 heh given september’s insanity. Plus i have a sneaking suspicion that terri is going to be exploding things for me in short order :)
While i enjoyed this one, today it fell a little flat. I think that maybe i need to really be paying attention when i do a session with this tea. Thankfully, it was still a delicious cup and got me through the early morning hours.
Another selection from the BBB Box from tastybrew! This is an interesting tea – the leaves are all over the place and dry, they small slightly sweet. brewed, this makes for a cup of tea that reminds me more of a juicy green, sweet tea than a black tea. It was an intersting cup for the morning. Glad i have more to play with and enjoy! :)
I needed a cup of delicious tea after the last cup. So even though it’s late and i’m falling asleep in my chair, i’m having a cup of this. A great contrast to the sweet licorice taste in my mouth. blech. I like this tea a lot…too bad i didn’t think to make it a latte tonight heh.
Final Count: 106 (21 left to go in 7 days – 2 of which i’m not really here)
…and another one bites the dust. I think i’m finally calling it quits permanently on the verdant blends club. I resubscribed at the promise of vanilla and the box has disappointed. I still have 2 to try, but neither one is peaking my interest and this one is awful. While i don’t mind licorice – there is too much of that in here and it makes for a sickeningly sweet lemon like brew that has a terrible after taste. I tried really hard to drink this but i just can’t.
I’m tired of this tea. So it’s going in to my swap box.
It’s not that it’s a bad tea, but i never find myself wanting to drink it, and it’s got too much of that woodsy sort of rooibos taste to it that i don’t like. If this had just a little more strawberry flavour it would be perfect. Without it though, it’s not for me.
mmmm had a cup of this today in the evening since i’m trying to relax and de-stress a little before the week starts up again. On the plus side, next weekend is along weekend, so that will be nice :) i am a fan of this tea, even with the rose. it blends really nicely and the chamomiles makes for a nice was of subduing the rose, while still letting it be in the tea. thanks angel for sending this one my way!
mmmmmm pulled this one out of the cupboard since i have a metric ton of this, zhu rong and LB…and my LB stash has been dwindling. Once again, i was reminded of m=just how much i love this tea. it’s similar to LB but not as cocoa like..but still there are familiarities between the two that make this cup also, a deliciously enjoyable substitute for my beloved LB that i need to hoard again.
Home from the BBQ now and trying to pack and get ready for tomorrow! woot woot!
dexter sent this one my way and i think i’m a fan. I brewed this western style to take to the BBQ with me since i knew i’d need something to keep me going. No maple added this time since i just wanted to get a sense of the tea sans additions. This was smooth and slightly malty. No floral notes that i detected, but then i was outside for a gorgeous afternoon with awesome friends…so not much as going to ruin that!
