4669 Tasting Notes
mmmm sipdown on another tea that the lovely terri sent my way. It was really nice to have this back in my cupboard again for a brief moment :) I really like the steeps and resteeps of this one, though it’s not my all time favourite from verdant, but it’s by far NOT my least favourite black tea :) thank you terri!
SIPDOWN! (269) Finally feel like i’m starting to get somewhere with my sipdowns though i do have a few teas coming from cavocorax and i might have just picked up a few teas for terriharplady and i to share. BUT! i think i can get under 250 by the end of the weekend so i think i’m doing ok. Not great, but ok and i’ve certainly managed to curb my spending impulses a bunch.
Really happy with this one from lala! It’s one of those unexpected happy teas :) Sad to see it go but at least i know i enjoy it and can get more eventually!
mmmmmm raritea rocks my world. She didn’t really like this one so she sent it my way because this is tasty! Not sure if i like it better than chocolate O, or the cocoa tea..but i am a fan of this one. Mousse au chocolate from MF is better in a dark chocolate kind of way but this is like it’s sweeter cousin…at least i think so, though i may be the only one lol. mmmm
thank you kittylovestea for sending this my way! No steeping parameters on the bag so i went for 3 mins to see how that worked. I think my taste buds are on strike because this tastes like chocolate to me. lol I get a bit of strawberry from this but mostly it tastes like a chocolate cream tea. I’ll have to play around with this…it’s pretty darn tasty but it’s uh not really strawberry to me lol
mmmmm sample sipdown! I have to say this is delicious! I am really enjoying this one from bluebird. I think this can safely go on the list as one to have in my cupboard at least occasionally. It smells amaaaazing! and brewed it is sweet and custard creamy like and slightly sour. I love how tasty this is, and the fact that it’s a rooibos that doesn’t have that woodsy taste is awesome!
Soooo funny story about this tea. I’ve gotten probably 4 of these as samples from verdant and each time I give them away because let’s get real here….jasmine? Green? Flowering? I think not. S when another showed up at my place via cavocorax I had to laugh. I took it as a sign that I should just try the darn thing. So I did. It’s MUCHless jasmine that I thought it would be and isn’t overly floral. I still don’t love it, but its not nearly as terrible as I thought it would be given my taste preferences. Soooo a win? Or at least not a loss…plus…sipdown! Haha
