5761 Tasting Notes
sipdown on this one, though it’ll be something i drink all day long. However i didn’t want to lose sight of it, since this was what i started my morning off. The lovely terri sent this my way and i’ve been saving it for a day when i really needed something nice to get me though. Today is that day! and man..first impressions? really amazing! more to come later…
still going… wheee!
I had a cup of this way early this morning to get me going. I’ve got an insane day of work ahead of me followed by the annual christmas party if i decide to go (though either way i’m out the money for the tickets)… I quiet like this blend, though i’m not sure if i like it more than the individual teas that make the blend up. hmmmm i’ll have to give that more thought :)
another day…another dollar for black friday spending on tea…not a whole lot i want. Long story short since it’s way past bed time, i had this – latte style because it makes me happy :) I am thoroughly enjoying not fussing with sample sipdowns or finishing off teas…because this is my weekend to drink what i want! haha not that i hate sample sipdowns but i’ve decreased my cupboard a bunch over the past while and work stress = tea is my go too small quiet moments during the day where i can zone out, take a deep breath and stop. for. just. one. sip.
I had another cup of this tonight since I might be getting more of this over black friday. If not, i’m not fussed about it since it’s a regular tea with Della Terra so i’m safe from having to moan over it’s removal from the site :) I received my swap teas from cteresa tonight but i’m trying to wait for a bit before i try them so that i can really sit and enjoy them without work hanging over my head. i MIGHT make an exception tomorrow morning for american breakfast haha…anyway, point being that i WAS down to 136 but now i’m back up to 142. However STILL under my black Friday goal so HA! :)
i made a couple cups of this with dinner – first steep with nothing and then added honey for all my subsequent steeps. I think i’ll try this with apple juice or something like that just to see how it fares with that or a nice black base. I’m trying to branch out a little in terms of blending my teas together so this should be a good one to try that with. over all though, this is a fairly tasty blend, as far as herbals go :)
I took a 5 min break today to finally get around to trying this tea. I particularly like vanilla teas as lattes, so i opted for that as my first go around with the tea. I am a fan! I’ll write a better review once i have it straight, but as a latte, i am great with this one! Now i just need to get around to comparing it to the vanilla tea from tao leaf tea in my cupboard heh
I owe Angel and teavivre a better review for this tea – work got insanely busy this afternoon and my first steep cooled before i’d even tried it. Long story short, i’m not a fan of most oolongs. This tea? pretty delicious!
and wow…this has been waiting for several hours for me to finish. not going to happen stupid work. long story short, i need to try this one again when i can pay attention to it. but on the whole, a nice tea, and it you like oolongs, probably even more yummy to you!
