6403 Tasting Notes
Another one from terri! I think i’ve figured out how to get at least 1 of the three sipdowns i’m trying to do done every day and that’s by trying a new black tea every day as part of my rotation. Since keychange sent my her old timolino that means i still have 2 teas i’m guaranteed to enjoy in my travel mugs lol.
This one is one that i would be willing to pick up again if i needed to get to a certain price threshold for an order of something. it’s malty and bold but not bitter. I quite enjoyed having it in my mug this morning!
last cup of the evening since i haven’t had this in a while. I am really digging the richy almost coffee like essence of this. Not that it tastes like coffee but it has a depth to the body of this one that just makes me love it a lot. Is it sweet? not really.. it’s just… yummy. so there.
Final Count: 176 (which is freakin’ awesome considering i was at 197 saturday morning!)
mmmmmm i love this one! This is a great rooibos chai from terri! I followed her instructions and steeped this for what was likely 12 mins. The result is a really tasty spicy chai that makes me ever so happy. Especially since it’s a rooibos! I like the cardamon and the way that the flavours blend together. this also isn’t one of those woodsy sort of rooibos teas so it’s on my happy list! thanks for sharing terri!
nom nom nom. this one is pretty tasty. I don’t think i’d order it again, or maybe just one a year sort of thing but it’s a pretty good gingerbreadish sort of tea. This is another one from terri from awkward soul :) I have a feeling that the base in this one would turn bitter if brewed for too long as it reminds me of that sort of tea. However, this was certainly a tasty cup!
mmmmm this one smells so nice. like christmas. I actually think this one would be tasty steeped in hot apple juice for a taste similar to apple cider… or something..i dunno, that’s what the combination of the smells is making me think of. Again, there’s a subtleness to this taste when brewed. I’m not sure what it is about devotea teas…but the smell of their teas seems to be much less intense than the taste that comes through when brewing. Maybe i jsut need to brew for longer than 3 mins…but i’m wary of having the tea turn bitter. I do have to say that more and more, i’m quite enjoying whatever the black base is that they use in their blends. it’s nice, smooth and doesn’t have any atringency to it :) thanks for sharing these terri!
well, might as well continue with the trend of teas i don’t think i’ll like before i have a final couple of cups tonight that i do like. Let me tell you…drinking things alongside the cocktail i made for myself tonight (gingerale; rye; pama) is the way to do it! lol
Soooo the lady has lavender! OH GOODIE blarg AND Blergamot…two awesome flavours in one beautiful tea! not.
….or….maybe? Hmmm… i’m thinking that just maybe the devotea doesn’t understand flowers the way that other companies do. I’m not really getting a whole lot of lavender (maybe it’s all in the cup i saved for cavocorax bwahahahaha) so this is coming across as more of a subtle blergy, orangey tea…with a splash of what might be floral on the side.
final verdict? yeah i still don’t wanna drink this…but it’s MUCH less offensive to me than i thought it would be. I have to say that the devotea has quite a nice black base….this is what i’ve learned so far haha
