7144 Tasting Notes
why hello there tea that i see a certain someone hasn’t tried yet….looks like it’s one more cup of you before you go visit that person mwahahahaha. Still enjoying this one, though not nearly as much as the first time i had it. still though, happy to enjoy a nice straight cup of black today. this afternoon. it’s almost stop work time!
Final count: 208
cavocorax gave me this one and i’ve been saving it because it sounded terribly delicious to me. that being said, once i brewed it up, the citrus is a little too over powering. I am relaly loving the caramel smell and taste, but struggling to find the harmonious balance with the citrus in this tea. That being said, maybe that’s why it’s a good hannibal tea since that show is messed up lol. Still enjoying it, though i wish things were a little more gounded and balanced :)
Another tea from VariaTEA which gets me to 210…soo many teas still to drink to get to 200, let alone 100. I have to say, with this tea, the jury is still out. initial sips provide a flavourless sort of tea until the tail end of the sip where the butterscotch is hiding out. but when you hit that butterscotch, it’s delicious! Soooo while i am a fan of the flavour, i’m not a fan of that initial taste you need to get through to get to the good times :) still though, i can appreciate why ppl like this one, so thanks variatea!
ugh..i’m almost out of this tea, which is a good thing and a bad…because even if i ordered this today, it wouldn’t be here for a couple weeks…and it’s not like i need mroe tea. but it IS a december tea and that’s part of my 6 month goal that i likely won’t make but i’ll keep working on :) enjoying this today as i’m having a bit of an apathetic day. i think i’m still sick so its making me tired and complacent. heh
this one came my way via Roswell Strange I have to say that while i have apparently tried this before, today it was a better cup than i’d say the last time i had it. Might have something to do with the GIANT WALNUTS in my cup :) it was nice to have this one again, though still nothing i need to stock.
backlog – i didn’t realise i’d already had this team – some came my way via the BBB box grab bag ;) it’s nice to revisit this since it’s been a while since i last had it. However, my perceptions are still the same. Not a bad tea, not a great tea…just average…
Final Count yesterday: 213 (not too shabby since i lost 6? hours to Ikea..18 teas)
i feel like i had a different tea than everyone else lol This one came my way from boychik and i had it yesterday (finishing my catch up). To me? this was barely smokey…instead what i was getting was a deliciously smooth tea with just a hint of something that might be smokey. Even after a couple resteeps it was just a pleasant cup of tea lol
glad to be finished up with this one….needed a break from caffeine teas before we do some running around tonight for house things. I’ve got 15 more teas to try and get through tonight and let me tell you….holy it’s a long road haha. this is nice enough, but given the choice, i would of course always reach for THE pumpkin ginger tea…
