5079 Tasting Notes

83

Another one from the morning! I figured i’d try and get through some of my “older” teas that i have in larger quantities instead of getting to sipdowns today since i have 3 major goals that i’m trying to focus on at the moment
1) drink my 52 teas down instead of hoarding them
2) drink older stuff that’s been around for the longest (though that’s still all less than a year old)
3) get to 150 teas by november 1st

This falls somewhere in the range of old-er teas with large quantities. I really like the strawberry flavour of this one – i think i actually prefer this one to “marco polo” from MF as this is a less picky tea. It’s not a strawberry cream tea but it is strawberry black. Either way, i still enjoy this one a lot!

drank Bukhial - TGFOP by The Tea Emporium

I could have sworn i’ve had this one before but steepster tells me otherwise. Either way i enjoyed this quite a bit this morning, which was slightly unexpected given my disappointments as of late with the tea emporium. That being said, it was with their flavoured teas so maybe i’m better off sticking to their unflavoured blacks. I’m not sure if i sent this to my tea sister but i think this might be one that both terri and nicole might enjoy. It’s malty, though not overly so and sort of a mid range black – not really a BOLD morning cup, but not yet the sort of cup i like in the afternoon either. Looking forward to having more of this since i should get around to drinking it up!

Had this in the morning today as a latte. Mostly just enjoying being able to get my daily milk in as I haven’t had time these days to make my smoothies.

Maybe over the weekend?

Sil

Doubtful :( tomorrow I have to go to niagara for a wedding reception which will kill my day and then I’m on site for a release from 4:30am until 2pm or later (with no tea!) on Sunday. Fml. Also just going home now….

SIPDOWN! (217) oh yeah… another 52 tea wrapped up for the year :) Not much else to say about this one that i haven’t already said. It’s tasty but no need for a repeat purchase for me :)

Drinking this one again tonight to try 1.5 tsp per 8oz. I think i prefer it this way when i want more “float” but i’d drink 1tsp per, when i want more root beer lol At least that’s how it seems to me tonight. Either way, i am still a fan of this one…really want to turn it in to a slushie now haha

drank Shamrock Tea by 52teas
5079 tasting notes

have to make sure to get my 52 teas in every day so i picked this one out of my cupboard tonight as it’s one of the most full teas from frank that i have. I like this one but because of the intensity of the mint, it’s not a tea i can have all the time. I do like how the vanilla offsets the mint though. The only thing that might make this a tad more delicious is with a wee bit of chocolate. I may have to experiment with this one sometime :)

drank YaYa Strawberry by Steep City Teas
5079 tasting notes

Pulled this one out of my cupboard this evening because Steep City is having a summer sale and I hadn’t tried this one in a while. I still really need to try this as a cold brew i think, but that hasn’t happened yet. This will never be a favourite of mine given the green base, but it’s a decent enough tea. I likely won’t order it again but this isn’t a chore to drink at all.

drank Assam GFOP by Kusmi Tea
5079 tasting notes

sipdown! thanks again nicole (aaaallmost done working through all your teas! lol) I was hoping that i would enjoy this one as much as the other straight black from Kusmi that nicole sent my way but sadly, it wasn’t meant to be. While this isn’t a bad assam, there are a number of others i would prefer to drink. This IS a much more enjoyable cup for me than their flavoured teas, so at least that is consistent! It’s not overly malty or bold…just a sort of average every day tea.

drank Black Currant by Tea Forte

SIPDOWN! thank you nicole for sending this my way to try. I think i prefer the H&S version but this one is a close second. I like that it’s not astringent and yet still tasty! thank you!

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.
