7475 Tasting Notes
Another generous sample from Angel that i’m enjoying today in an effort to get more teas closer to sipdown category :) I wasn’t sure whether i’d like this one or not, given my dislike of “rose” as a general flavour in teas. Turns out that this one is pretty tasty. The chamomile balances out the rose sufficiently for me (though maybe that’s because i picked all the really big flower chunks out of my cup before brewing…) Not sure if i’d restock this one, but i am enjoying this quite a bit. It’s a lovely evening tea for relaxing…
Thank you again to Angel for the sample! I picked this one today, mostly just for a break from black teas. I don’t like drinking my greens and whites unless i happen to be in the house. Sadly, this one feel short with me – there are other white teas that i’ve had from Angel that i much prefer. For me, this was closer to “water” than a lightly flavoured white tea. :( oh well, you can’t win them all, and i didn’t hate it – just not a tea for me :)
mmmm thanks for sharing this with me Dexter I am a fan of this one. it has a similar profile to some of the TTC teas that i’ve had, but there’s an under current to this one that makes it a little heavier, and perhaps more to my liking? though i’d need to do a side by side to really figure that out. This is sweet and fruity and dark and twisty. love it! thanks dexter!
behind in my tea logging today – having a work from home day so that i can be productive and catch up on a few things before round two of travelling next week. eep. I am a fan of this one, so i’m glad that i picked up another sample with my new tea pot! :) I don’t want to fully stock another large amount of this one, so it may just be samples here and there when the mood strikes
mmmmmm another one from the lovely dexter I am a fan of this one! it’s berries and tart without being overpoweringly so. I brewed this up hot, and also let it cool so i could get the full range of tastes to this one, and i enjoyed it all. It really is “berry” not really leaning towards one of the other. I really do need to place a tea cuppany order soon…i’m still holding on to the sample packaging of the sweet potatoe pie tea dex shared with me last year so i don’t forget to pick more of that up haha
Final Count: Finally no more tea inbound and i’m at 125. Since September is a write off for me, going to try and get to 85 by the end of this month…40 teas in 12 days. :)
this was one from Indigobloom via Raritea Not my favourite. It’s not a bad tea, but it’s not really pumpkin spice, or fig. It’s like it couldn’t decide what it wanted to be and so it’s a melange of something that just doesn’t quite work. thanks for sharing though ladies! I do like getting to try new teas :)
Another lovely, amazing, generous sample from Dexter in my quest to try more WP teas before i make my first purchase. I know this wasn’t the tea for dexter, so i wasn’t sure what to expect. Especially since i also know that my dear teafairy enjoys this one.
After brewing this one, and trying a few steepings, i’ve come to the conclusion that i don’t know how i feel about this one. On the one handle i enjoy the complexity and the “different” feel of this tea…on the other – it’s fairly expensive a tea, and not likely something that i could afford to drink often, so is it worth it? I have other teas that i ADORE that are less expensive and bring me great joy. I enjoyed the cedar notes in this, and i really do love the base than brendan uses. I think though, that i’d be better off to splurge on another tea for the price. that being said, i did enjoy this tea and i can see why others have fallen in love with it. It’s just not high enough on my list to warrant purchasing :) At least not often heh. Thanks again Dexter!!
