4830 Tasting Notes
I had this earlier today. While it’s a holiday here in Canada (except for Quebec), SOME of us were rudely awoken this morning to system issues that they have since spent the better part of this GLOIRIOUSLY fabulous sunny, summer day, dealing with. Yes. I’m grumpy. And this tea didn’t help. Not sure if my taste buds are off or something but it was bitter and icky. I’m hoping it’s a one off. If it continues, i’ll adjust the rating downward.
S I don’t forget, had a cup of this tonight..a single serving left before its all gone…. Wheeeee!
13 weeks until November… 221 teas less 150 over those 13 weeks is 6 sipdowns a week…. Assuming that between now and November I pick up NO new teas…which we already know isn’t going to happen since I have uh…teaspot, butiki, teavivre, verdant on their way and another butiki order as of yet to be placed…. But a girl can dream right? And scheme? :)
Sip down! Cold brewed the last of this one to see if I like this any better…should have thought to add a bit of my stash of laoshan green to see if it helped cut through the coriander…but I didn’t. And so? It’s is not a tea for me. Blech. Ick. I’ll stick with laoshan green on its own please and thank you :)
I cold brewed this the other night to see how it worked out. Seems that this is a tea better suited to hot brewing and then maybe cooling it off to drink cold. It’s not bad this way, but i prefer the hot brew i made the other day. good to know though as i do like this one from terri :)
Thank you fiddling! I made a cup of this today to help kick start my day. After yesterday’s cleaning and running around, we’re just hitting costco today and then maybe playing some board games to relax once we get home. We bought two new ones yesterday and there are a few in on the shelf we haven’t played through already. lol tough part is finding friends who are willing to come over and play a game for an hour or so…so sad!
However, since both my other half and i are only children, we have no issues playing through a game on our own with ephelant and helen the corduroy dinosaur. :)
This tea? not bad, though there are other chai’s i would drink first. I think this one might be better steeped in milk with a splash of honey so that will be the next way that i try it :)
SIPDOWN! (222) Another i finished off yesterday that was delicious! I actually tried this one in my new ZOKU slushie maker and had a blast with it. My next attempt will be at a creamier sort of tea i think. Maybe some of those mint teas + milk heh.
Overall, i’m happy with this one as a rootbeer tea and might even consider re-ordering if it ever comes back :)
