6601 Tasting Notes
This is another from my hepatite swap with Sami Kelsh Yes, i AM trying to drink them all today so i don’t have to increase my cupboard too much with the teas from Sami and Dexter lol. I quite liked this one. Sadly, i had it a while ago so it’s not fresh in my mind, but that is usually the case when i’m trying to get my tea drinking on, and work decides to pester me. While i don’t think i’ll ever rate an adagio tea above 85, this one is up there. I like how the tastes in this one blend together AND i’m not getting that underlying “hey guess what? i’m an adagio black tea” taste happening. :)
plus… the peppercorn addition was kinda fun and made this tea a little more interesting to me! :)
Another one from my hepatite swap with Sami Kelsh This one is rather tasty. I know mojito’s have mint in them, but i feel like this is the wrong mint for this tea. It makes me want the mint to not be in the tea lol.
Edit: work got in the way of me finishing this review… long story short, this is really tasty, but i want the mint to be less present, or be a different type of mine. I really like the citrusy flavour of this one quite a bit.
I participated in the Hepatite swap this past month and yesterday i received my tea from my swap buddy. I’m not sure whether i’m more excited about getting my teas, or the thought of my swap buddy getting my teas. Heh…not that i want to spoil anything, but those of you who have um gotten tea from me, know a little of what she’s in store for hahaha.
Sami Kelsh sent this one my way and that’s awesome because it was on my wishlist of things to try someday! Mostly because of her review haha. this is delicious…delicious and creamy and man i would pick this one up again! The vanilla is there but there is also a cookie like quality to this that is so very tasty. Thank you so much Sami!
mmmmmm dexter sent this my way. My other half did a sneaky thing and picked up my tea yesterday but didn’t give it to me until today – he left it on the table for me to find in the morning since he knew i was working from home today. Doctor appointment this morning so it’s easier to go there and come back home than go all the way downtown. This is another yummy tea from yezi! I am digging the sweetness that it in this cup along with a sort of malty finish. mostly though, it’s just good. like nearly every yezi tea i’ve tried. nom nom nom thanks dexter!
oh bother. It’s official. these are finally finished up, out of my cupboard, possibly never to be seen again. sad. but happy. but sad. Seriously though. Favourite pearls ever. there’s just something deliciously wonderful about how malty and rich and yummy they are. If garett ever finds some again, they will be insta-buy. even if they won’t be exactly the same.
edit: also drinking this so early in the morning means i can resteep it aaaallll day! oh happy day!
Last tea of he the evening had while catching up on some tv after working a bit tonight. There’s a story there but the short of it is….ppl who get paid more than me are inadequate at their job so now I am doing their job plus my own while also continuing to support my entire team….some day, this will pay out….dear god I hope so.
This tea? Best time ever tonight….
Final count: 132 (but there are inbound teas tomorrow…..eep!)
this was another tea from dexter that i wish i’d had time to focus on while it was hot. Sadly though, i ended up brewing this, and then it sat…getting cold for about 2 hours. That being said, it was lovely cold lol I just wish i’d had a chance to try it hot! This is for sure a coconut blueberry tea, and that adagio black base i dislike, didn’t come through which made me even happier! this was probably my favourite of the potions blends that dexter sent my way!
my flavoured tea for the day…my headaches seem to have finally stopped today so i really do think the past three days have been the result of the weather. which really sucks because i should NOT be susceptible that much. i am finally getting to try this one out on it’s own and man it is deeeeelicious! I need to have a cup of this alongside the caramel/toffee tea from Damman Freres as i think this one might actually win out for me. i know, i know! that’s how yummy this one is! :)
so torn. On one hand, this is one of the oldest of my teas and i need to drink it up. On the other hand.. it’s out of stock on verdant’s website which means if i DO finish it off…i’m out of luck until it comes back. decisions, decisions! oh man…what to do… for now, i still have a few cups before i have to stop drinking it or just go all in! :)
