5595 Tasting Notes
Catching up on my logs from yesterday so that i can continue trying to kick terri’s butt in our sipoff :) This was a sample sent to me courtesy of Kaylee! This was an interesting tea. It calls for boiling, but given the green tea in this, i opted for a slightly cooler water temp. Now i have to say, that i didn’t expect to like this one because i am not a fan of most teas with florals in them. But i wanted to try it and kaylee was awesome enough to send it my way.
This is a pretty decent cup of tea. It’s not really up my alley but i wouldn’t turn down a cup. It has a great vanilla, rose scent and the taste is similar. Luckily the rose doesn’t overpower the brew and the vanilla complements it very nicely. This was a lovely cup to try! Thank you Kaylee
This is a pretty decent black blend. I picked this up when i was in vancouver visiting silk road and i’m glad that i did. I opted for the limited edition, let’s see how they do with a straight black tea before ordering more online. This is a pretty decent bold-ish cup of tea. I’t pretty smooth, with a little bit of kick to it, if you’re the sort that isn’t a fan of bold, black teas heh
sipdown! I needed something without caffeine just to change things up a bit. While this isn’t a bad fruity tea, it’s more a generic fruity like all those other fruity teas with hibiscus in it sort of fruity tea. sense make? :) It’s not a bad tea, but it’s not really a pomegranate tea. Oh well, still decent!
Sipdown! Can’t let Terri catch up! haha
This was one of the teas my lovely tea sister sent me, that i have apparently been drinking but not recording. Oopsy.
Those who know me, know that most oolongs i can live without. I really only dislike most green ones, but even the roasty dark ones sometimes have that distinctive taste that i’m not a fan of. This one borders being delicious and being a dark oolong that i’m less a fan of. There’s a touch of astringency but not enough to be a bad thing. There’s a sweetness to this as well, though i can feel a bit of floral hanging out in the back. Overall though, it’s been a decent cuppa to drink!
sipdown! I’m pretty happy about this one, not because i don’t really like this tea, but because the teabox is on it’s second around with me and i have just finally finished the all the teas that arrived the first time it came to me. I’m not sure i can keep up the pace going forward, but i do like being able to not have things in my cupboard for eons.
This has a bit of astringency to it, but not overly so. It’s somewhere in between a malty tea and a sweet tea…a very mellow tea.
Thanks again TB!
(257…how does my dust taste so far terri? lol)
oh man i love this…except my brain thinks this is soup. not tea. thank you kittenna! really…this is super tasty delicious! It’s a savoury tea and though kittenna didn’t get much tomato, i for sure am. The black pepper adds a certain spiciness that i love. I can taste both the pepper and basil in this one. YUM! so glad i got to try this one out!
man… if blueberry cream cheese danish reblend tasted like this i’d be so much happier. theres a little bit of astringency to this, but the blueberry flavouring is pretty nice. it’s not super creamy, but it IS tasty. i added a little sugar and it made it oh so much better,cutting through the slightly astringent taste.
sample sipdown! Thanks kittenna :) This is a pretty decent chai tea. But it’s not pumpkin. It’s got a bunch of ginger in it that makes this an interesting blend and slightly different from some of the other chais that i like, but it’s tasty. Dropped the rating slightly though because pumpkin this is not. :)
SIPDOWN! I’ve been hoarding this tea that terri sent me because it’s been gone for soooo long. But Lily assured us it would be back in short order so i figured i could bust it out today. Mostly because it will give me something to drink most of the morning while i try some of my other samples that may not be as delicious. That way i always have something that i’m drinking to look forward to until i cant get any more steeps out of it lol
i really love this blend. the tea, the spices…it’s just a great mix of everything going on together!
