6338 Tasting Notes
sipdown (189) time to switch to the lesser caffeine options i think. I’ve kinda been drinking a lot today in an effort to stay warm in our house. Our balcony door’s weather stripping is nearly non existent so the wind has been pushing through all day, making the house colder than normal. I had tow ear socks today. blech. 188 up to 193 and back down to 189 lol good times were had by all!
this one’s not too bad but it’s a little picky for my tastes. it’s easy to brew this up and get a bit of bitterness that i don’t like. Still though, an enjoyable cup!
lol just when i start making progress, more tea arrives hahaha Got my awesome christmas card swap from kallieboo today with a number of teas in it. Steepster really is a great place! Of course i’m back up to 193 teas LOL oh well, there’s always another day just around the corner for drinking tea :)
This sichuan caravan isn’t as spicy as the last incarnation but it’s still damn delicious. I’ve had a couple steeps now and it’s the one tea that’s helped make me a little warmer this afternoon :)
decupboarding this (182) because even though i like it a bunch, i find myself never wanting to drink it. ie. there is always something else i reach for first. I guess that means i should get around to posting in the swap thread since i have quite a number of teas that need good homes heh
What i like about this one is how the vanilla softens the mint so it’s not like ZOMG MINT IN YOUR FACE MWAHAHAHAHAHA! :)
sipdown(183)! I needed a tea to cleanse my tastebuds but wanted to try and get another sipdown in. So i picked this one since the flavouring feels very natural. While not a huge fan of oolongs, this is one that i can get behind whenever i’m craving that strawberry flavour that isn’t artificial. This tastes like the strawberry aftertaste of freshly picked garden berries :) Always love this one from teavivre!
another of the 12 days of christmas sent via dexter apparently my goal today is to drink a bunch to stay warm so that hopefully whatever is at the mail today doesn’t explode my cupboard any further lol. This one is pretty tasty for a white! I’m starting to think that i prefer flavoured whites over flavoured greens and straight greens over straight whites. Either way i’ll figure it out eventually. :) This one isn’t too bad. I have zero clue about what absinthe should taste like but this is minty and refreshing without being overly ZOMG in your face flavoured. not likely a restock but i did enjoy this cup a bunch :) thanks again dexter! this has been fun!
sipdown! (185) this one reminds my of cocoa butter. You know the lotion…i haven’t seen it in forever but it’s one of those scents from childhood. This tastes, like that smells lol. It’s not a bad thing, it’s actuall quite tasty, but that’s what it tastes like. Thanks for sending this our way tastybrew!
