7966 Tasting Notes
noms! this one is from kittenna and i was super glad to get a sample of this. I missed being able to order this one which made me super sad. I’m glad i was right to want this one as it’s fantastic. I love the smoke and the banana and it makes me happy. The maple is really in the aftertaste, and i added just a few drops to the last half of my cup to see what that would do – amaaazing! lol I really did love this cup! Thanks so much for sharing kittenna!
oh. god. omgsrsly sent this my way, and she received it from dinosara. Can i just say that i love you both…of course now i want moar! I’ve had a couple steeps of this one this morning and it is amaaazing. Seriously…not a fan of oolongs as a general rule but holy mother of all that is caramel, THIS is delicious….it smells divine! it tastes like liquid gold… yum. yum…and did i mention….yum? thank you so much ladies! (now to find some that i can buy)
Another from omgsrsly expect that to be a trend lately while i get through the samples from her, Kittenna and bear with me! I feel like i’ve had a tea from this estate before but who knows how i’d be able to check without sorting lol This one feels like it needs milk. I don’t have a large nuber of teas in my cupboard that require any sort of addition (milk, honey, maple syrup etc….) because i like the no fuss of things.
tea from omgsrsly today is surprisingly busy at work, all things considered, so not sure how many sipdowns i’ll get through unless i bust out the herbals tonight. This is an interesting one for me. It’s a juicy, slightly malty (but more juicy) assam. It’s not super bold, but there’s enough character here for it to not be a wimpy cup of tea. I had this one first thing today to kick off the day! thanks lady!
haha omgsrsly sent this one to me (sipdown!) I actually don’t mind it…but i think i’d like it better without the apple. It adds a weird sort of fruity taste to it whereas the rest of the ingredients work a little better together. Still though, will be interesting to compare this one to the black tea base version :) thanks lady!
Final Count: 112 (9.5 sipdowns a day for the rest of the days i’m home would get me back to my goal for the end of the year….totally doable. maybe. )
kittenna dropped the rest of her package off with me this past weekend because i love this tea…lovED this tea. Not sure if this was a reblend or what, but this doesn’t taste nearly as wonderful and yummy and delicious as when i first had it, and i even added the strawberries from my butiki tea to it :( Thank you so much for the kind thought though Kittenna! I will still enjoy finishing the rest of this off :)
