6492 Tasting Notes
mmm 4 teas left until my oldest tea will be from September! woot woot! Sadly, it’ll take a while before i’m within 6 months of my oldest tea but progress is being made! I finished off the last of this tonight and it was a tasty cup, though i still prefer the caramel and honey one for the added notes of flavour that are going on with it. :)
mmmmmm tea for laaaate dinner lol. We had a late lunch at the mall so now we’re having late dinner. I figure about the time we roll out the pizza, i should be good for switching to the few herbals i wanted to have tonight. I didn’t manage to drinkg nearly as much tea this weekend as i wanted to, but that’s ok. One more day left in the month! woot woot!
I’m not sure what sherlock’s experiment should taste like, but this is a tasty blend of black tea and puerh. The cinnamon and spice doesn’t over power the tea and while i can’t taste the ginger (there’s never enough ginger in most teas to suit me…) I can tell that there’s a hint of orange in this. Overall a satisfying blend.
Another from shmiracles her swap is what has both saved me in my epic quest to get to 140 for april and caused much of the issue in not being there already haha. The nice thing is, once i get to 140, i’ll still have a few of her samples left over to make a quick bump down a little lower while i continue to work on some of my older teas. :)
This may have sprinkles in it..but man this is a whole lot of lapsang in a cup. I’m not getting much in the way of anything else…but i’m ok with that because it’s kinda what i wanted. haha a little splash of maple and i’m a happy camper :)
edit: 3900 tasting notes…I think i’ll get to 4k before i hit my steepsterverary again haha. May not hit my goal of 2k teas tried though…
shmiracles tea fest! another one from that package. This is a nice enough cup of tea, but in this cup there is just too much cinnamon. it’s not that the cinnamon is overpowering or anything, but i feel like it’s hiding all the other wonderful things in this tea…like GINGER! :) i did enjoying drinking this one, but i also felt like there wasn’t much point to the other ingredients since they weren’t coming through like the cinnamon. Ah well, still another happy tea to have tried (and that gets me to 150 at least…10 more to go in 2 days heh)
thank you*shmiracles!* This is a really pleasant cup this morning. I don’t get much almond flavouring in this one but the cherry is quite nice. It’s somewhere between cherry candies and real cherry flavouring, and the assam in this one is cutting through the sweetness, preventing it from turning in to a cloying mess of blech. Thanks again for all these fun adagio blends shmiracles :)
Terri sent this my way and i was surprised that i hadn’t yet tried this one from Stacy. I’m not sure that this would be on my top ten tea list from stacy, but it is a unique tea for sure, and one that i wouldn’ turn down if offered. that’s mostly because darjeelings tend to be hit or miss for me. I really like the strength of this tea and the maltiness….and the aroma. for whatever reason, the aroma of this one is just a happy time for m this morning. I’ve been sitting here inhaling the cup and smiling every time haha thanks terri!!
Another tea from shmiracles. I was hoping for a bit of zing from the ginger but i’m finding instead that this is mostly just lapsang. It could just be that there wasn’t a lot of ginger in the bag or something. On the plus side, this isn’t a bad lapsang and with alittle bit of maple it smoothed out into a rather tasty cup. thanks shmiracles!
