4889 Tasting Notes
thanks again variaTEA (can you tell i’m finally getting to your sample box this weekend? lol) this one was actually quite pleasant. I’d need to be in the mood for a lapsang as this is a little more smokey than not smokey but it was a nice cup. hints of mint and…something else? made it more interesting than just a boring old lapsang heh
thanks again VariaTEA as these have been fun to try. this might be my favourite of the lot so far, except that there’s a bitterness in this one that i dislike. it also leaves me mouth feeling super dry. heh. BUT all that aside, this is a nice enough chai like sort of tea with just a hint of something sweet running through it. apparently that’s caramel but i am just not finding that..just “sweet” to me.
18/28 sipdowns (home stretch! lol)
VariaTEA sent this one my way and so today i thought it would be fun to go through as many of the Serenity Fandom teas as i could. This one was from earlier today as i’m still working ugh Sadly this one was just a muddling of flavours to me. i didn’t get much in the way of orange or chocolate..just a blend of a vaguely fruity sort of adagio black tea. :( it wasn’t bad but there wasn’t much distinct in here for me
I had this one earlier today as well when i wanted something a little lighter. This one was sent my way by omgsrsly likely via missB?? This one isn’t bad but it’s a little on the light side. While i’m not overly a fan of green teas, when i do have them, i like it when they’re a little more in your face in terms of their “green” flavour. this one seems almost subdued or something heh overall though, not bad just nothing to knock me off my feet.
this one came to me via YYZ and was another early morning, get me through this day, tea. This yunnan is a fruity sort of yunnan. On the whole i find that i prefer the sort of malty, chocolate, cocoa-y sort of yunnan. that’s not to say that this one isn’t bad, but it’s not the type that i prefer. it does reinforce that i need to get time to place an order with Capital teas though, as there are a number of tea there that i would likely really enjoy. Thanks for sharing YYZ!
