4862 Tasting Notes
Another Sample from the wonderful Nina’s Tea! Seriously folks, take them up on their generous offer and try a few of their samples! because i have a number of teas on their way and because of Bonnie’s tasting not today, i was inspired to try this one out. I don’t usually drink mint teas unless they’re chocolate mint teas but i can say that this tea here is a good one! The mint in this isn’t overly intense but it’s still obviously a mint tea. I really find this to be a smooth, refreshing tea! Thank you Laurent!
YAY for catching up to today’s teas finally. I’m also super happy that i can add new teas again to the database since i had a couple of those to do before i could finish all of that up as well. I am still enjoying this one quite a bit, though part of me was a little sad that it wasn’t a sipdown. I need more of those…like a lot more. I added a wee bit of maple syrup to this even though it’s not really a smokey keemun heh. Mostly because i’m still celebrating being back with my tea! :)
…aaaand yet another backlog! last one i swear…well from vacation haha. I don’t remember much about this one except that i didn’t hate it. The lavender was the one thing i wasn’t overly fond of, but on the whole i liked this way more than i thought i would given the ingredients. Not anything i need to stock BUT it is another tea to cross off the list.
backlog from last week. I had this when i popped in to silkroad and it’s the reason i totally want to go pick up one of those silly zokurkwekrhwekrj things. not the popsicle one but the slushie one! This tea + milk in the slushie maker thingy was soooo good. i wish i’d been able to try this straight as well but overall i think what i like about this one is the addition of the vanilla. It also makes me want to try out stacy’s peppermint patty in the slushie with milk :) I’d be hard pressed to say which i like better ONLY because i didn’t get to try this one straight. I’m pretty sure stacy’s would win though….pretty sure :)
Backlog from last week. So maybe it’s the addition of carmel and vanilla to this tea but i totally splurged on a latte in the afternoon at one of our stops at murchies. Um hello? yes thank you. This was delicious! I actually ended up picking some more up just to bring home and try straight. I suspect it won’t be as delicious as the latte but now i’m slightly more inclined to try a tea latte on my own outside of the matcha latte’s i’ve tried. I’m fairly certain that murchies is more of a “add milk and sugar to this tea” sort of company based on all the teas i’ve tried now but there may still be room in my cupboard for a few of their teas. :)
Backlog from last week. I had a chance to try this when i was at Murchies. Overall this isn’t a bad assam but it’s not really compareable to the other assam teas that i’ve fallen in love with as of late. It might have something to do with the fact that it was in a bag instead of loose but i’m not 100% on that. It still had a darker taste to it but it fell a little flat. I’m beginning to wonder if it’s because Murchies makes their teas to be consumed more with additions. Still though, glad to try it and cross it off my list. :) I’d drink it again but it’s not amaaaaazing!
First tea back! I figured given all of the teas that are incoming in the next little while, I should finish off some of my last few cups of tea. I chose this one because not only did I only have a cups worth left….but it’s delicious! I can hardly wait for this to be back in stock with Stacy. I’m counting down the days until its here. I love that this is not only a black tea but there I a sweet juiciness to this that is unlike other teas that I’ve had. Soooooo good! (Sip down)
Forgive the crappy tasting notes…I’m in the land of not really having wifi while we’re out in BC so I’m trying to capture as much from memory as I can. Tried this earlier today and it wasn’t half bad. I was iced, and was pretty decent in the mango department though not as intensely mango as I wished for it to be. The green tea was rocking out in the background for the most part. Nothing I need to purchase, but wasn’t bad to sample.
Had this today while out for lunch in Victoria. This isn’t a bad little blend and if I didn’t have a mountain of tea at home I would have picked up a bit to bring home. I didn’t have this straight, rather murchies added a bit of fizzy water and simple syrup to the blend. It was a little sweet this way for my tastes but I can imagine this would make a great cold drink for hot summers.
