6037 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! So i have to say, I tried this a while back and liked it a lot but then forgot about it because it’s a green tea and i don’t drink those often. VariaTEA sent a sample to me, which i opened up today in an effort to get ahead with my sipdowns since now i might not have the weekend at all for tea drinking!
…We’re driving to Detroit on Friday night, Chicago on Saturday, and then all the way back to Toronto on Sunday. Because we can. lol…
I love this even more than the first time. Something about the vanilla and caramel REALLY makes me happy. it’s deliciously creamy and wonderful and now i want more. So maaaaybe i can convince my friend to trek up to Miami in February heh :) Thanks variatea!
Operation 150 is in full effect! Goal today – 5 sipdowns, since i’m not sure if i’ll get time to get some in on Saturday.
VariaTEA sent me a small cup of this that Cavo had sent her because this is not the tea for her…and that’s OK. I, however? SOOO happy to have this back in my cupboard for a day. It was a nice start to my morning today since yesterday had been a little insane with work. :) Thanks for thinking of me VariaTEA! great start to today!
sooo….thanks to VariaTEA i am not back up to 173 teas. My original goal for the end of January was 150 teas. ASSUMING that my orders from the US don’t get here until Feb and there are no other surprise teas in the mail, i have 23 teas to drink in 9 days. 2.5 sipdowns per day..and there is ONE weekend in that time frame. Verdict? LET’S DOOO THIS! I think i have enough smaller samples to be able to get through enough teas. And hey, maybe if i can manage it, i can splurge at the toronto tea festival since that will be the first weekend of February heh. it’s go time!
thank you teafairy! I made this one iced to start because as some of you may know, i’ve been REALLY off of “peach” as a flavour. That being said, this smelled different than the peach i’ve gotten used to. The verdict? This is pretty good! It’s creamy and delicious and a different sort of peach that i quite like! I added a weeeee bit of sugar t the cold brew halfway through and the flavours just popped! thanks a bunch teafairy!
cold brew that i’m enjoying tonight with late dinner. Sadly the cold brew didn’t translate much of the pineapple taste that i liked in the hot brew. I prefer this as a hot brew, though maybe hot brew, chilled would be the way to go. Still tasty, but for sure missing some of the pineapple flavour!
Edit: 3400 tasting notes haha Also, down to 167
…again, lost track of my thoughts on this one this afternoon BUT it was an enjoyable oolong. Rather than hoard the rest of this, i’m going to send the last little bit of this off to terri to try because i think she might have fun with this one. Thank you for sending this my way teafairy I’m sorry for not doing it justice in my tasting notes. Blame work. 14 hour days suck…especially when you worked from home to drink tea and pay attention to said tea!
