5370 Tasting Notes
SIPDOWN! (238) And so begins the start of operation clean up. Clean up as in, drink my old teas first while working on all the small amounts of tea i have that will be done in 2-3 cups. once that’s done or at least more sorted out, i can focus on drinking the teas i’ve got in my cupboard that i haven’t even tried yet. LOL. I don’t mind this one but it’s not my favourite. I reminds me of the pumpkin caramel cheescake tea from frank but not nearly as tasty heh. overall not a bad little blend though. Thanks for sending this my way cavo!
sooo I need to get back on track with sipping down my 52 teas so i figured i’d keep up with the cold brewing of this one. I don’t usually add things to my teas, so i suspect that’s why i didn’t like this one hot. But cold brewed, with sweetner – oh that hits the spot. It’s like liquid cotton candy. Yep. Not bad, but i’m not bumping the rating since i don’t like it hot!
thank you cavocorax for sending some of this one my way! Kittenna inspired me to try this out tonight which is good because it’s also a close sipdown haha soon! I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while now. I’m not sure what i expected from this one since it is my first decaf black tea. I feel like tea shouldn’t be decaf for whatever reason so yeah.
Overall this isn’t bad. I still think that unless i’m pregnant or something where i need to restrict my caffeine intake, i’d rather just drink a regular old black tea. I might try H&S’s normal vanilla and see how that compares.
On the whole though? this isn’t half bad. It’s not quite what i want. I’d for sure drink this again, but i don’t know that i’d keep it on hand, unless i needed none caffeine options. But for now? i don’t so ha! lol
sipdown! (239) Another one from my swap with shmiracles and i have to say this one has grown on me the second time around. Bumping up the rating a little as i’m enjoying it tonight. being oolong it’ll never be my favourite but this is another that i would drink from time to time when i was crazing that green taste :)
oh man… i love this tea. I think i need to sit down with all my deliciously juicy assams and figure out which one is best. this one reminds me of the tea that i am currently lusting after from butiki (it’s almost here!!!!) though slightly different. I really like this one….it’s an assam but it’s not your typical malty, rosty dark :)
Another tea from Laurent. This was my second go at this tea and it’s just not the tea for me. this is a little better the second time but it’s not my favourite tea. i taste a lot more peach in this blend than other fruits, which is maybe why it’s not quite the tea for me. it’s a decent enough tea but as far as peach teas go, there are others i prefer. I just wish i could figure out how to get the other flavours to pop a bit more.
Another Sample from the wonderful Nina’s Tea! Seriously folks, take them up on their generous offer and try a few of their samples! because i have a number of teas on their way and because of Bonnie’s tasting not today, i was inspired to try this one out. I don’t usually drink mint teas unless they’re chocolate mint teas but i can say that this tea here is a good one! The mint in this isn’t overly intense but it’s still obviously a mint tea. I really find this to be a smooth, refreshing tea! Thank you Laurent!
