6865 Tasting Notes
Ysaurella sent this to me in our swap and it was the perfect tea this morning to help me focus on the last of my work that i need to get done before i can run around the house like a crazy person trying to get ready. I’m trying to get in at least 3 sipdowns before i go lol just so i can end this month at 140. A nice round number :) It’s also a good way for me to make sure i’m drinking and relaxing a little.
This is a pretty tasty tea and i can see why it reminds ysaurella a little of the du loup (i miss that tea!) There is caramel and vanilla here, though the caramel mostly comes through as sweetness. I’d be interested in picking this up again if i ever get the chance to go shopping in france grin
i love this tea. And yet..it is getting close to being one of the oldest teas in my cupboard and so i need to stop hoarding it and drink it, love it, enjoy it. But i will be terribly sad when it’s gone. There is something comforting about the smell of this one in both dry and liquid form. It’s just totally yum. But i still have enough for a bunch of Sil sized cups…so i won’t cry…..yet.
guys…i’m so tired. I have another hour or so left of work to finish up before we leave…and i can’t do it tonight. We’re not exactly packed either…nor is the house clean or stuff ready to go…and i have to go to the bank tomorrow as well… before we leave. what fun! not.
this was my morning tea. Again not smokey so i dunno what’s up with that. I should try teh bag courtney sent me tomorrow and see if that is back to being smokey.. i’m so confused…
Great Canadian Travelling Teabox!
…mostly because i figured i should try to get at least ONE tea in from the box every day until i go on vacation. I think i like this one a little better than the Della Terra version, if only because the lemon flavour seems a bit stronger. I don’t know if this qualifies as PIE like, but lemon chiffon…sure! :) happy to try this one out :)
Final Count: 144 (including the teas i got this week from everyone! woot woot!)
sooooo another of my samples from RiverTea. Long story short? this would be a fantastic, awesome tea…if there were no flowers in it. Sadly, i’m picking up enough floral notes (even through the tartness of the raspberry) that it lessens my desire for this tea. I really like the fruity base of this, and the creaminess of the vanilla….but i just can’t get past the floral notes in here. Anyone who doesn’t mind floral but loves raspberry cream should really try this though, as i think that would love this!
This was one of my samples in my most recent order with RiverTea, thanks to winning their Valentine’s Day contest! I wish i had a bit of justea’s kenyan black to compare against this one, but maybe Cavocorax will indulge me when she gets the other half of this sample :)
I’m not sure how i feel about this one…there’s a strangely malty?sweet? taste hanging out that seems weird to me. It’s not a bad tea..but it perplexes me. I’l probably get this again as another sample just to try out again sometime haha
Now THIS is a roasty oolong that i would seriously consider getting more of. I like that there’s a hint of that charcol note, but it’s not overly coming through and what IS coming through in the taste is smoother and less…charcol like than others i’ve had? This is a really smooth tasting cup of delicious. I pretty much made it, sat down to start thinking about it and writing something, and it’s already all gone. Thank you ever so much for sending this one to me Ysaurella I think i really DO need to place that theodor order soon!!
