4927 Tasting Notes
Into the swap box this one goes. It’s not a bad tea but the matcha really doesn’t add anything to the taste as far as I can figure out and it’s a pretty “average” genmaicha. there are a number of others i would drink before this one. Again, though, that’s more of a personal preference than this tea being a “bad” tea. If you enjoy genmaicha’s this one would probably be a tea you’d enjoy. I, on the other hand like them on occasion only, and therefore want to stick to the truly exceptional ones that i have had :)
So it turns out i like green mate better than roasted mate, but still not so much. I tried this today while trying to get ready for the day. While it isn’t nearly as yucky to me as roasted mate, it still has an odor i don’t like and it a pretty “meh” cup of tea. Into the swap box it goes in case others want to try it.
last tea of the evening…wanted something that i knew i would like and still work towards my goal. This, along with raspberry cream are probably the two 52 teas that i have that are hardest to drink up since i know they’ll be gone when i’m done. One of these days i WILL remember to try this as a latte, but tonight is not the night. I really do love this blend and thank you nicole for adding to my stash of it haha :)
Another one from the morning! I figured i’d try and get through some of my “older” teas that i have in larger quantities instead of getting to sipdowns today since i have 3 major goals that i’m trying to focus on at the moment
1) drink my 52 teas down instead of hoarding them
2) drink older stuff that’s been around for the longest (though that’s still all less than a year old)
3) get to 150 teas by november 1st
This falls somewhere in the range of old-er teas with large quantities. I really like the strawberry flavour of this one – i think i actually prefer this one to “marco polo” from MF as this is a less picky tea. It’s not a strawberry cream tea but it is strawberry black. Either way, i still enjoy this one a lot!
I could have sworn i’ve had this one before but steepster tells me otherwise. Either way i enjoyed this quite a bit this morning, which was slightly unexpected given my disappointments as of late with the tea emporium. That being said, it was with their flavoured teas so maybe i’m better off sticking to their unflavoured blacks. I’m not sure if i sent this to my tea sister but i think this might be one that both terri and nicole might enjoy. It’s malty, though not overly so and sort of a mid range black – not really a BOLD morning cup, but not yet the sort of cup i like in the afternoon either. Looking forward to having more of this since i should get around to drinking it up!
