4923 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! I might actually have a few less teas in my cupboard than i thought since i did a quick glance at some of the samples that i apparently didn’t take out of my cupboard yet though they’re gone. That makes me happy since i might very well be able to get to 235 this weekend, which even when i get my teas from my friend this weekend, will still leave me with enough time to get to 200 before the end of june…i think. I haven’t yet run out of smaller sizes so i think it’s manageable haha.
This tea is one that i shared with cavo and the last bit i have i’ve set aside for Terri. I suppose it’s cheating a little but i can do what i want! haha This is a very mild tea. It’s a very smooth – i like my teas a little bolder but this is a nice every day sort of tea, more of an afternoon tea than a morning one.
backlog from yesterday as well – had this as an end to a nice evening with friends. It appears that somewhere along the way i also hit 1900 tasting notes. heh what fun! I really enjoy this one from stacy as a mint tea. though my chocolate chips don’t always melt, i like the way the mint, marshmallow and peppermint blend in this one. I have a few herbal tisanes with mint in them for the evenings but this is for sure one of my favourites. :)
backlogging from yesterday as we had friends over after work and i had no time to myself to relax! I had this in smoothie form yesterday with a splash of vanilla matcha and chocolate matcha and it was delicious! I think coffee/mocha smoothies are my favourite these days because of the creamy way in which the milk blends with the flavouring. It’s better than a frappacino :)
mmmm had this waaaay earlier today since today is another gloomy day and i wanted some comforting teas. Still trying to manage my sipdowns and get through some of my larger packages of tea but i needed comfy teas today. This is still a pretty tasty tea, though not as wonderful as 49. But i’ll never turn this one down.
Mmmm had this again tonight while out getting my hair cut. Note to self, try to get it cut sooner than once every 8 months lol. As usual I fell asleep while it was happening. Finally a hair stylist who understood that hair cuts are my relaxing time, and didn’t try to talk to me the entire time. 5 inches off, and that was a struggle because she really didn’t ant to cut my hair off. For whatever reason, hair stylists always seem to want to keep my hair long after falling in love with it. One of these days ill find someone like the woman in Vancouver. Walked in and said cut it, don’t care what you do, just don’t give me bangs. She said….you wanna go short? I said sure! She cut 10 inches off and when I didn’t cry, laughed and said " you can take more off" she basically only left me with 2 inches! Best time ever in a hair salon…..and let me tell you the people around me were freaking out….touching my butt to 2 inches. :) it’s only hair, it’ll grow back!
Oh yeah…so the tea? I’m still digging this a lot, though I always want to eat peanut butter when I drink it….maybe next time! Haha!
mmmmmm i realised the other night that i’ve been remiss about drinking up my custom blend! I’ve done a great job sharing it with everyone but haven’t had a cup of it in a while. So tonight, i did. Read a little of my book and drank a lovely cup of this before i need to head out to get my hair cut. It’s been about 8 months since my last hair cut and it’s starting to show! haha I always feel better after a hair cut so it’ll be nice to finally get rid of all the split ends. A bit late for a hair cut – it means i’ll be home fairly late, but it also means a head massage and some relaxing time on my own this evening. oh and tea…mustn’t forget to bring the tea with me! :)
thank you shmiracles for this one! I tried it hot brewed tonight before i’ll cold brew it just to see how it goes. This one has actual little freeze dried strawberries in it, which i think is what makes the blend so very truly strawberry. The down side? Not so much kiwi. There is a tangyness there that i interpret as the kiwi, but it’s not quiet kiwi. :) Still though, pleased with this one as the strawberry is very delicious. I’ll see how it fares as a cold brew to see if it will work as a summer brew :)
sipdown! (243) Farewell strawberry pie honeybush :) You were great while you lasted (through 2 bags i might add). Overall i’ve grown to dislike the strong presence of the cinnamon in this one, though it’s a great little tea. The strawberry is delicious, and the cinnamon does make it pie-like. I just prefer walter bishop strawberry over this one if i had my way. :)
