6485 Tasting Notes
sipdown! (169) not too shabby for being sick, not concentrating on sipdowns and having awesome tea friends make my cupboard explode on the day before the end of the year. lol 30 more days to see if i can get down at 150 just for fun!
This was another tea from the lovely missB I’m not a huge fan of eggnog – something about the texture makes me NOT want anything to do with it. But i DO like creamy, delicious vanilla type flavours – which this most certainly is. I haven’t had eggnog in years, so i have no clue how close to eggnog taste this is…but it’s what i want eggnog to be like – creamy and delicious with no funny weird textures :) thanks for sending this my way missB! I quite like it, and it’s not necessarily something i’d have picked myself :)
Edit: i Started the year having tried 1398 teas since i joined steepster…total as of the end of today 6 new ones! (1404) Let’s see if i can make it another few hundred by 2015 haha
sipdown! this was from a sampler a while back and i finally got round to trying this last one. Sadly i was hoping for more from these little packages. I think i’m better off sticking to tea that isn’t “designed for cold brewing”. Oh well, it was a great intro to some of tea fortes teas. This one is white and ginger…but not really pear. Instead there’s a weird taste to it that i’m not a fan of.
nom nom nom nom nom drinking tea while playing board games and being sick. My other half is willing to join me in a year of taking 1 picture a day of something that makes us smile/we’re grateful for/we appreciate etc… so here’s to trying to keep that up for a whole year :) Anyway, this tea? love it. so glad i picked up 100g of it…though it’s going fast!
sipdown on this one as well, though i’m sad to see it go. The rest is off to Terri so that she can try this! I quite enjoyed this, though i think unlike others i don’t have a dying need to see this one around as a permanent blend. I’m happy to have tasted it and experienced it but Stacy has so many others i love more :)
nothing to say about this one really…tried again with it and it still isn’t any sort of yummy for me. I don’t much like yabao and after a few cups of trying this out under various conditions it’s still nothing i’m enjoying. the last little bit of mine is off to terri to see if she can pull some delight out of this one.
sad sad tea. Thanks for sending this my way missb! I was excited about trying this one out because not only did it smell amazing in the bad but there were little caramel droppings in it. However…brewing this has left me with a cup of artificial tasting slightly tart weird tasting tea. it’s pretty gross lol. I’m going to pass on drinking more than the couple sips of this one and chalk it up to not the tea for me. too bad since i’d had high hopes for this one. heh thanks missB!
sipdown! (174) I apparently felt like a few of missB’s samples today :) I love a good scottish caramel toffee puerh. I have no idea if the few that i’ve tried all ultimately come from the same source but i will never say no to this particular tea. there’s something delicious about the earthiness of the puerh mixing with the caramel that leaves me happy. It’s not sweet but it’s delicious! Happy to have tried another variation on this one!
