5592 Tasting Notes
So this is like a preemptive sipdown ha! this is one of the teas that Dexter sent my way and i’m choosing to drink this before adding it to my cupboard :)
This comes at a great time, given the two promotions that Steep This! is having right now. I’ve looked at their website a couple of times, but haven’t placed an order because there aren’t “enough” teas that i DO want to try. I’m hoping that they’ll come up with a few more blends in the near future – particularly with black teas!
That being said, this is a great tea! I love strawberry teas but generally they’re either green or black. So this was a nice change. What was even better about this tea is that the strawberry taste is genuine. It’s not that artificial strawberry taste…just straight up strawberry – like dried real strawberries. I don’t much of the “white tea” flavour in this, but really that’s fine with me. most white tea tastes like sweet water to me anyway ha! this would be pretty darn good in summer too…
sipdown. WOW. that’s all i can say, is just wow. This was from the great canadian travelling tea box, though i’m fairly certain this was one that dexter put in. I have been drinking this all morning. Seriously. the smoke is just perfect..and it’s sweet and delicious and every time i forgot what i was drinking and absentmindedly took a sip, i was immediately floored and kept exclaiming Oh! This may actually be one of the first cakes i get around to purchasing from Garrett…even before noble mark or special dark. Because this? this was really good. (though with my luck it’s all sold out or something…keeps happening lol)
this is a sipdown, even though Alice was generous enough to send me enough for a bunch of cups. I just drink big cups AND want to share/return the tea favour with tea friends. So the rest of this is going off to a mystery tea friend since i think she/he might enjoy it. ha! this isn’t bad. i found myself drinking it and wishing it was just a little bit more apple pie like, but still enjoying the flavours and the fact that the tea base is still present, unlike a vast majority of flavoured teas. So thank you Alice this was enjoyable!
mmmm keemun + maple syrup always = my happy place. Especially on colder mornings that i need to get cracking on things. Sipdown as well. I’m not adding the teas dexter sent me until the end of the day so that maybe i can manage to get still be under 160 when i have to add them…or at least not nearly as high above that!
sipdown! I had this early today as i need to get a few sipdowns in today since dexter made my cupboard go up a bunch! I think the BBB Box might also be sitting at the post office for me, so there’s another few teas. I REALLY want to stay as close to 150 as possible to make sure i keep my goal of 150 by black friday. Awesome tea friends are making that hard though! While i’m not an EG lover, i do appreciate getting to try this one out so thanks Cavocorax!
I received this one from Alice in our swap and honestly, i just wanted to drink it because the name is fun to say. :) It also helps that it’s an assam, which i love. I don’t recall much of this one as it’s a backlog from yesterday but i do remember enjoying it thoroughly. I have just enough for a small cup to really pay attention to it, while still being able to send a taste to Terri for her to try :)
this was a lovely tea that i had yesterday. I didn’t get much in the way of tea drinking done yesterday because of date night, but i plan on making up for that today with a work from home day haha. I’m looking forward to drinking my mandala teas once i get through a few more other teas in smaller amounts (dexter i’m looking at you here lady!)
This was my evening cup of tea because i’m exausted. I had this while watching an episode of dr who. Likely going to just try and get to sleep early tonight because tomorrow is date night!
I’m taking my other half out for dinner at La Societe (think fancy but not stuffy, french cuisine) followed by Aladdin (the musical) just because we haven’t been to the theatre in a long time. Plus i’m a big kid. so there lol
