5059 Tasting Notes
sipdown! (199) received this as a free sample from della terra…i think? either way i much prefer the earl grey creme from upton, though i really wish someone could explain to my why earl grey creme = lemon chiffon like black tea to me :) it’s alright but if i had to drink an earl grey creme it’d be upton’s. Not rating this one since i’m not a fan of earl greys…but it’s a decent cup.
sipdown! (200) yay for being back down to 200! i’m trying to finish up a few more teas that i want to send off to my tea sister this weekend so there will likely be a few more of these here and there :) I still can’t figure out this tea…it tastes like cinnamon swirl but then it tastes like something completely different. I don’t dislike this one..but i’m not sure where it fits…
sipdown! (202) where did 203 go you might ask? well that was one of the verdant reserve sample from points tea that i had with dinner. I don’t bother logging them because you can only redeem once (which makes me a sad panda) and because it varies depending on when you redeem them. I also have zero information on the tea besides the fact that it was “2006 wild picked stone-pressed yabao”
This tea? it’s ok. pretty much will be fine never drinking it again, though it wasn’t a “toss down the drain” tea of anything like that. I just prefer black and white from steap shoppe as there are other better chocolate teas out there that i love. :)
mmmmm having a cup of this tonight just for fun. I have a plan for my teas to drink down this week so i’m feeling aaaalmost ready for back to work tomorrow. Looking forward to getting back in to a routine of sorts and getting a handle on the new work process for vacation/overtime etc. I do quite like this a bunch – it’s growing on me, though as far as strawberry rhubarb flavouring goes, this is second to Ruby pie from butiki but vastly superior to the ones from 52 teas. Something about canada day says strawberry rhubarb to me…so in the absence of delicious pie or something like that tonight, tea it is! :)
sipdown! (205) I was under 200 for my goal for the end of June, but the arrival of a small package from nxtdoor means that i’m back slightly over 200 again. However, i figure i’ll be through a couple sipdowns before the weekend rolls by so i should be ok. Of course, that’s provided my verdant birthday order doesn’t arrive…though if it does i can always keep it boxed up until my actual birthday since i’m not sure if i can afford my other bday orders heh.
anyway…i digress on with the tea! So this one? it’s ok. not my favourite, not my least favourite. pretty middle of the road as far as teas that i’ll drink go :) I don’t mind being done with it heh
