5775 Tasting Notes
sipdown! that means i’m at 228….so getting to 200 by the end of the weekend should be totally doable as long as my other half doesn’t get my as sick as he is…but if i DO get sick..he’s going to the store to buy me this. this is what i want in a ginger tea…just enough citrus flavour to offset the intense ginger… and it’s caffeine free…AND my other half likes it…so he’s drinking this..and i’ll take the resteep… lol YAY! maybe it will help him get better!
Sample sipdown…it’s been a long day..and i’m still working so i’m having puerh at almost 11pm. yeah, that’s right. Why? because i’m stlil up for another hour or so…. I added in my order that came in while terri and i were competing, so new final count after i write my tasting note for the other tea i’m finishing off tonight.
But this tea? I love it! I picked it up as a sample in my recent tao leaf tea order so that i could try a few more of their teas and this is delicious! Better than expected. The puerh isn’t hiding behind the flavours and the vanilla is cutting through the mint to soften it a little. So even though this is just a little sample packet (tao’s samples are enough for a normal person cup, but most of his teas lend themselves to decent resteeps…) i am really enjoying this. I can only hope that the boring basic vanilla black that i picked up is as good, since that was in a larger quantity. off to a good start with these…
i said quits on sipdowns terri! not tea drinking!
yeah…i REALLY decided i wanted this one. and then…because i always realise half way through my cup that i want to try this as a latte…i finally remembered before brewing the tea. So i’m having this, as a latte, and it is deeeelicious! I will be really sad when this one is finally gone because it’s exactly what i want in a strawberry honeybush tea. Frank’s other strawberry pie tea was good…but after this one came out, it’s my new favourite since it doesn’t have the cinnamon factor :) As a latte this is pretty darn close to being a strawberry milkshake..and that? that makes me super happy!
Having a cup of this tonight… i’ve been up since stupid o’clock having not slept well for the past few nights because my other half is sick and i’m fighting it. I should likely STOP drinking tea but it just seems soooo early lol. At least i’m trying to stick to caffeine free options just in case. I will have to reorder this one soon enough as well since i’m nearly out.
SIPDOWN! I figured i might as well end my sipdowns for the evening with this one, since it marks my 2600th note since i joined steepster 14 months ago. In that time i’ve met some fabulous people and tried 1118 teas…if steepster is to be believed lol.
This one is interesting but not a repurchase for me. i like the sandalwood addition. thanks for sharing this with me cavo!
Sipdown! Lol I’m like an addict who just can’t stop….plus I’m soooooooooo bored. I’m about to crack open my box set of Roald Dahl books to see how many of them i can read tonight since I’ve watched a lot of TV.
Trying this one again, I think I’ve landed on being ok with this brew, though I’d rather just drink coffee. The flavour isn’t bad, but for something like this, I’d really rather just have that delicious coffee flavour…coffee…chocolate……mmmmm
Thanks for sharing though tastybrew! I was super curious about these ones!
SIPDOWN! 221 and i am 98% water for sure at this point. i REAAAAAALLLYY wanted to get to 217 today but i’m not sure i can do it. It’s getting late and i should probably stop drinking fluids lol
There are some silver needles that i quite like, and there are others that are pretty much water. This is one of the former – it’s a delicious juicy white tea.
