4026 Tasting Notes
Kittenna: Sil, how much of this blend do you want to pick up from stacy in our order?
Sil: uuuhhhhhhhhhhh lemme go drink some and get back to you.
Thus i had another cup of tea tonight. Final verdict for those that are interested? 2oz. Of the “other” version of this tea that Stacy is super awesome for making me. And then i’m awesome for sharing with Kittenna and now terri wants some and OMG YAY!!!!!!!!!
fml i’m tired.
edit: if this were the other tea’s log..my rating would be likely up in the high 80’s or 90’s
i’m pretty sure i had no idea what i wanted this one to be when we picked it up. Mostly though? now that I’m trying it? i want it to be more honey and less spice. There is too much in form of cloves happening here for me to see this as anything different from a wannabe rooibos chai. which is not, apparently, what i wanted it to be. It’s not terrible, just there are better teas out there that are mostly the same thing.
oh yeah..sipdown! 293….
so i’m not sure what i think about this one. I didn’t like it when it was really hot but as it’s cooled it’s become more and more tasty. This is really mellow and ripe and i can’t really describe too much of anything tonight because i’m just tired….sooo very tired.
Frank is forgiven temporarily. Thanks to starfevre for sending this my way! This smells quite like rum and coke with a splash of lime when you open the package. Hot, it’s more coke than anything but i can totally see how if this were iced, more of the lime and rum flavours might appear. I will for sure be trying that sometime soon. Overall, this is a pretty tasty tea but i still think this is maybe 1 out of 4 or 5 lately that has been on the better side of things.
also..it really sucks when you’ve had such a crappy day that you miss reading a tasting note that says don’t over steep it! soooo yeaaah.. steeped this for 3 mins and it’s a little on the astringent side. however if i ignore that initial taste, i can spot the delicious tea that this would be if i hadn’t goofed on the brewing sigh There’s a malty creaminess to this tea that screams DELICIOUS!
Thanks to kittenna for letting me try this…even if i did screw it up.
I picked this out in the morning because i thought i would get a sipdown out of it. Turns out there’s enough for ONE more cup…i seriously thought about tossing the extra leaves into my cup but i didn’t really want it to be bitter and i DO enjoy this tea. so no sipdown but a good wonderful cup of tea that helped me get through my crappy ass day.
Thanks to whatshesaid for this tea! i’ve had it before but I didn’t have any left when she was offering up her teas for swaps AND she had a few others that I haven’t had a chance to try so i stole this one from the cookie jar! HA! so there. :) Still loving this one and happy to have it back in the cupboard. It might be a tea that i restock and have around permanently for that week in the month that sucks the most cough since it’s even tastier that week. So yay! for finally getting to at least one of the teas she sent me.
The rest will be tried this weekend! promise!
