6407 Tasting Notes
I purposely brewed this one up with that other tea…knowing full well, i would probably really like this tea. Another one from missB and i was right. I really like this. The spices aren’t overpowering and neither one is the dominant flavour here. Instead this is a pleasantly blended cup of tea that is much like the smell of christmas. I like the added vanilla as well, as i think that it helps take the edge off the clove taste. Not that i mind clove taste but it softens it in a way that i really like.
Thanks so much missb!
sipdown! (166…oh yes i WILL get to 160 damnit!)
gross gross gross gross gross gross…OMG GROSS. thank you missB for sending this my way. Let me preface by saying i’m not a hige fan of coconut. I’ve been lucky to find a few blends that have it that i really enjoy because it’s that fresh tasting sort of coconut.
THIS? is that gross oily, smells like feet sort of, not natural at all kind of coconut. It assaults my tastebuds and nose. I took a sip and then couldn’d do anything more.
upside? one more tea off the list of ALL THE TEA! :)
This was my morning tea…well whatever passes for my morning after staying up all night and getting a 3? hours nap. Still enjoying this one quite a bit but with all the varieties of black teas that i have from our travelling BBB Box, i’m not sure that this will be a restock. Not that it’s not delicious, but i’m not sure it falls in the top percentile :)
I was a little wary of this one given that i’m not a fan of lavender. There was just something about the smell that i wasn’t a fan of. Thanks go to KallieBoo! for sharing this one with me, though after tasting it, was not something that i can drink :) On the upside, it has peaked my interest in this tea company since the tea base and the fig taste hiding behind the lavender was quite nice. So still a win in my books! :)
Figured i should cut back on the caffeine tonight/this morning? though who knows why. It doesn’t seem to be affecting me either way and either way i need to be up all night lol. I’m glad my other half is getting sleep though. I suspect i’ll be close to useless tomorrow…but here’s hoping i can get a mid morning nap in…maybe? i hope? still enjoying this one a lot…just wish it was a little more toffee like tonight!
wheeee! it’s after midnight…which means everything is ridiculously funny to me. I COULD sleep for an hour before our mid evening call..but i’m not sure there’s a point. Soooo i’m watching TV and the “married with children” theme song is playing in my head. i pulled this one out and had my usual sil sized cup of this. I am digging this quite a bit tonight. I should have tried it with a little sugar but i forgot.
I had this in latte form earlier tonight. I’ve got a long night ahead of me and i’m already crashing. Testing for work tonight, and amazingly enough they’re ahead of schedule…but that means less sleep ironically enough since the schedule before they were ahead gave me a bit more sleep time. I have a funny feeling the next few days are going to be filled with cranky tired Sil. But this cup of tea helped! Hard to believe i’m almost out of this one though heh. At least i’ve got another vanilla black in my cupboard to move on to after this one :)
Another one from theteafairy I need to try this cold brewed. This had just enough pineapple that i enjoyed it, but it made me crave butiki’s pineapple oolong for that sheer juicy pineapple feeling. I have a sneaking suspicion this one will be even better chilled over ice (or cold brewed) with just a splash of sweetner. still a fun time though! thanks teafairy!
sipdown! (168) I pulled this one out tonight so that i could try another tea Gschwen34u0234uweiroweri tea before i am back in CHicago. Yeah that’s right…stupid letters i never put in the right order. the Tea G! ;) While i don’t love this nearly as much as my friends to the west, it IS a lovely tea. I like the body of the tea base that doesn’t get lost that flavours. I may need to look at picking up a bit more of this to play with it some more. Thanks again MissB!
sipdown! Thanks for sending this my way MissB I think that this would probably be pretty darn delicious as a cold brew. This initial smelle is a little artificial but once it brews up, it’s a really nice raspberry citrus tea. I wouldn’t call it LIME right off the bat, but the combination of the raspberry lime is a pretty decent blending. I’m really happy to be getting a chance to try out this company’s flavoured teas since i’m sure i’ll be ordering from them in the future to try their straight teas!
