3153 Tasting Notes
Holy sneezes and running nose this morning! I’m not sick but it’s almost like i’m allergic (probably to work). Finished a glorious weekend of working all weekend and now it’s back to the grind. Looking forward to getting back to the gym tonight though so that’s something. I picked this tea today because while it’s a nice chai – there’s a hint of citrus going on with it that vaguely reminds me of mulled spiced apple cider. I’m hoping this, with my morning smoothie will help jump start my day.
Ok azzrian! I think I have this one figured out. Bumping the rating up on this one now that I’ve gotten the hang of it. NOW I can taste the creaminess with the strawberry. Sooo note to self, revisit all my 52 teas and brew them for less time :) guess I should have tried that earlier but I guess i just wasn’t thinking. This, this is pretty darn good now :)
Mmmmmm…. Chocolate chip toffee cookies fresh from oven with a cup of this. Delicious! Steeped for 2 mins saves the astringency from coming out. Now it’s just a great cup of caramel wonder.
Talking about this tonight made me bust out this tea and make some. As the only oolong I’ve liked thus far on my tea journey, adding the maple just kicked it out of the park. I LOVE the maple AND pecan taste that Stacy has captured. This is a fantastically wonderful fall tea. Oh yes….yes yes and yes!
Another cup of this tonight in honor of stacy’s new teas! Technically this is a sipdown of her sample grapefruit that she sent me in advance of the dragonwell that i ordered so go me! :) Looking forward to the new teas though.
It was just a sample size because i’m trying to curb my tea spending but i was really glad to taste this one, so much so that I’m thinking of buying this (or whatever version verdant has) again. I just really love the flavours. I’m not a big green tea fan but this..this i would drink again and again. Bumped the rating up again :)
So this tea, cold brewed? DELICIOUS! Sadly this is also a sipdown but this is a really enjoyable cold brewed tea. I’ll have to look into getting another similar rooibos sometime for those hot summer days. But for now this is just a great refreshing cold brew – with just a splash of sweetner to bring out the orange :)
Man I love grapefruit….grapefruit tea is also equally kickass when done inthe way that Stacy has! Bumping up the rating again because i really do love what she’s accomplished with this blend.
Man there is something fantastic about having a morning mocha smoothie! This was tasty delicious with my morning breakfast sammiches. Nothing says sucky weekend like one stuck in front of a computer testing websites. Blech! This smoothie was downright delicious though and just the thing to kick off my morning. Now to figure out what other flavours from red leaf i want to try!
Mmmmmprobably shouldn’t be drinking this (and coke) this late at night but at this point I to I’m up for a bit. Might watch some walking dead as well which always means taking a bit to go to bed. I really like this flavouring even if, as usual, I’m not getting much cheesecake :)
