4927 Tasting Notes

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. :)

That’s a great way to think of them. That’s probably why I had so much trouble drinking their teas – I don’t normally add anything. I do enjoy their Russian Caravan straight though!

drank Assam Pure by Murchie's Tea & Coffee
4927 tasting notes

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)

I know, this is sooo good! I have almost an ounce left and I sent an ounce to a man and his wife from China who both have cancer. They go to the Orthodox Church in California where my brother is a Deacon and I knew this and some good Pu’er I have would be a proper gift of love. Tea is wonderful for the sick and this one really communicates love and joy.

Ysaurella

yes I love this one and as you do I am counting down the days !

Sil

What a wonderful gesture Bonnie!

Bonnie

I posted that not to say that I’m a good person (steepster is filled with kind people) but the idea of giving tea as a get well gift is something better than a bunch of flowers! I thought that possibly someone had never considered this option.

Sil

Haha I didn’t take it that way Bonnie. I just think that’s a fantastic idea. You’ve inspired me to send some my aunt Mary’s way when I send her pictures of us from our recent visit out west to see her. She’s 94 and still has a HUGE house she lives in by herself…makes herself iced tea to drink every day from tea :)

drank Green Mango by Murchie's Tea & Coffee
4927 tasting notes

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.

Welome to BC!

drank Pink Lemonade by Murchie's Tea & Coffee
4927 tasting notes

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.

RAWR! yes..i’m in a mood. 30 mins until i have to leave my house to head to the airport and i still haven’t been able to pre-check in because air canada sucks at the moment…and i’ve been up since early o’clock and oh yes.. i gave up…i am succumbing to the sheer delight of a bold black tea…and waffle cookies.

drank Raspberry Vanilla by Zen Tea

SIPDOWN! (229) Happy to have made it under 30 before i leave for a week but it sucks that i really don’t have the effort/energy to put in to bringing tea with me and trying to find somewhere to make it. I don’t mind this one, but it’s not a re-order for me. I’m glad i had the chance to try it but that’s as far as i need to take it heh

drank Creme Caramel Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
4927 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (230) i guess i could drink some more black teas but i figure that this is a good time for me to try a few more of the rooibos teas i have. I’m not a fan of this one. It’s kind of artificial and not nearly as delicious as i want it to be.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
