7534 Tasting Notes
I picked this one up, knowing that I probably wouldn’t like it, but i always try things anyway. As it turns out, i was right… i am not a fan of Guaysa….it just seems to overpower any sort of flavouring that is added to it and turn every cup of tea into something i don’t like. So it’s not that this is a bad tea…it smells delicious, and i do get both lime and blackberry out of the dry aroma…but steeped..it’s just guayusa to me. at least that means i can give cavo a little more of our shared order and send some off to Roswell Strange to try out!
My rating and notes for this one seem to have disappeared. BOOOOO! This tea is really lovely. It’s a beautifully smooth black tea that’s middle of the road in my world in terms of boldness and strength. I have thoroughly enjoyed having these tea bags around because they’re just a quick and delicious option. Plus i adore the handmade aspect to the boxes they come in and the handmade beads that are used to close off the plastic wrapper inside. I fully support what these guys are trying to do as well – especially since their end product is delicious!
I had this early today to wake myself up. I’ve got work to do as well as some “fun” organising some tea swaps. We also have a bunch of work to do to get a list going of all the things we need to do if we’re really going to move to another apartment within the complex we’re living in right now.
This was a sample from Stacy, and i have to be honest, i’m not yet sure how i feel about it. I was initially getting a bit of a bitter note that i didn’t like, but then with a longer steep there was much more pleasant smokiness and a bit of spiciness to it. Overall, i think i may need to order this one later to really play with it :)
ugh…almost out of this one too..but i needed something delicious for my shopping yesterday to help with my stress level lol. I hate shopping. This will be a restock for sure, but thankfully this will still give me a few more cups before i am totally out of all forms of LB in my house haha
Final Count yesterday: 142
Another one from terri, that is still really tasty, but just slightly less so than the other couple i’ve had. This one leaves an after taste in my mouth that i’m less a fan of. HOWEVER, i wouldn’t turn this one down, nor would i discount the possibility of picking it up again because i can see it being just what i need on cooler winter mornings :) strong, smooth with a little reminder left over of what i was drinking heh. thanks terri!
