7165 Tasting Notes
I had this twice today. once David’s tea made it, and the other time i did. Mine tasted better lol but at least teh David’s one was free heh Still enjoying this as a cold brew but so far i’ve resisted buying it. Must stay strong to my no buying tea this month, especially in light of all the unexpected mostly sort of purchases that have come up this month sigh
gross. since i was in a davids, i picked up this one to try as a cold brew. STEVIA I HATE YOU! that’s right…give me the stupid sprinkles in cherry snow cone over the stevia in this one because it’s all that i can taste. Smells like pink lemonade, first sip is really nice and then…….
ZOMG ATTACK OF THE STEVIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Final Count: 175 ’Cause well cherry snow cone will be in there until tomorrow. :)
Guys…i finally picked this up to try! Basically enough for me to try it two ways so this will be in and out of my cupboard before you know it. I brewed this for about 24 hours and drinking it, it’s really really nice. I know there are better cheery tisanes out there but i am a fan of this one…which makes TWO from David’s that i’ve been a fan of recently… scaaaary!
mmm i need to get on top of trying and drinking through my Norbu teas. They were a guilty pleasure when i ordered them so i’ve been hoarding them for too long. this was the last of the 3 teas i took with me while travelling today and it too was a great choice. bready, cocoa-y delicious strong tea. yum yum yum
this is from the most recent blending of this tea – it’s different than the first time i had it – more citrusy than when i feel in love with it, and less vanilla. that makes me less a fan, but i’m hoping that will even out as it gets a little older lol. either way, one of my travelling teas from today:)
So. yesterday was my steepsterversay except i didn’t drink any tea. So today i’m celebrating with this cup and taking a look back at the last year or two just for fun. :) I’ve not been on steepster for 2 years.
874 different teas
2101 Tasting notes
235 teas in my cupboard
1058 different teas (so i’m up to 1932)
2446 tasting notes (up to 4547 now)
174 teas in my cupboard – with only 4 teas being from 2013 and those from December of that year
I have figured out that i don’t like 52 teas; David’s tea; teavana; adagio much.
I prefer blends that are flavoured with natural flavours OR simply be adding herbs and other fruits/berries etc…
Black teas are still my go to teas followed by puerh, though i am learning to appreciate the occasional green, oolong and white tea.
I have made lots of awesome steepster friends this year and had some great times with ppl learning about their tea preferences and their lives :) After two years around here, I’m still having a blast, loving tea drinking and loving this place! In case you guys didn’t know this – you’re awesome and quite possibly one of the few places on the internet where the trolls don’t come out :)
HAPPY FRIDAY SIL STEEPSTERVERSARY!
Another of the 3 samples sent to me by Green Terrace Teas.
this has been highly reviewed by a number of people so i was a little apprehensive. this tastes sweet. Not quite like honey, but still sweet. I think though, that this reminds me of a more solid TTC tea. There is a strength to this tea that runs through it that makes it different to other sweet black teas that i’ve tried. I’m looking forward to having this a few more times since the samples sent from Green Terrace are quite generous! thank you again Green Terrace! more to come :)
