6146 Tasting Notes
mmmmm took a bath and had this one with me. Pretty sure it was steeped the entire time i was drinking it and it’s no worse for wear. I’m a fan of teabags/herbals that let you do that since sometimes you just can’t be bothered fishing teabags out, or dealing with loose tea on the go. Still really enjoying this one as a substitute for making actual apple cider.
mmmm i had this earlier in the day but forgot to log it. Took it with me on my afternoon walk with my other half. We won’t get much time to spend together over the next couple of days – he’s got a staff meeting tonight, and then tomorrow i’ve got a work function to go to, while he’s at dodgeball so really, we won’t be hanging out until tuesday dinner, before he’s off to raid for the evening. heh
I will be sad when this one is gone if only because i am a fan of the smoothness mixed in with the smoke and a little maple syrup :)
Thanks Dexter! So strangely enough…even though the muscatel in this one is like HEY LOOK AT ME! I am enjoying this one. I don’t typically really enjoy darjeelings, but the next thing i knew, i was at the bottom of this mug going ..oopsy….i drank it all? There’s something in the smoothness of this one that just makes it easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Not something i’d pick myself, but i’m glad that they sent this along to dexter as a free sample so i got to try it!
Edit: 140! go me! woot woot!
Today’s cup of this is much less coconut-y and more fruity tasting?? Thats happened with a few teas today so maybe my tastebuds are having a weird day. This is an interesting tea, though the difference today is pretty huge from the first time i had it. I like it, but it wouldn’t be a repurchase, which makes me a little happy since getting this from Australia would be a pain in the ass :) Thanks so much for the share though alice as it’s been an enjoyable cup :)
sipdown! looks like i could PROBABLY get to 140 this weekend which would put me 10 under my sipdown black friday goal – giving me nearly 3 weeks to get my cupboard down to a point where when i get my black friday orders, i’ll still be under 150. At least that’s the plan anyway.
I am a fan of this one. I can see how this would work well with hot chocolate…mostly i just really like this one. I only wish the banana flavour was a teeeeeny bit stronger. I almost stole some banana chips from foxy roxy haha but i didn’t. Thanks a bunch for sharing james! totally delicious! i also like that the resteeps are pretty tasty too!
sipdown on the last of this sent my way by justjames i think i like the second infusion of this one better than the first – which is rare for me. It just seems a little more pumpkin like. That being said, i think i prefer stacy’s pumpkin creme brulee, though this isn’t a bad tea..just doesn’t jive with the pumpkin i want it to be in my head. Thanks for the share justjames!
i’ve been drinking this over the morning. It appears as though i’ve had less success this round with this tea. Today it’s a bit too vegetal and bitter for me. Not sure what i did differently this time around but this morning, none of my steepings have been overly delicious though i do know i liked it quite a bit last time. hmmm ah well. You can’t win them all! thanks again for sharing this with me terri!
