7729 Tasting Notes
this one came my way via Roswell Strange I have to say that while i have apparently tried this before, today it was a better cup than i’d say the last time i had it. Might have something to do with the GIANT WALNUTS in my cup :) it was nice to have this one again, though still nothing i need to stock.
backlog – i didn’t realise i’d already had this team – some came my way via the BBB box grab bag ;) it’s nice to revisit this since it’s been a while since i last had it. However, my perceptions are still the same. Not a bad tea, not a great tea…just average…
Final Count yesterday: 213 (not too shabby since i lost 6? hours to Ikea..18 teas)
i feel like i had a different tea than everyone else lol This one came my way from boychik and i had it yesterday (finishing my catch up). To me? this was barely smokey…instead what i was getting was a deliciously smooth tea with just a hint of something that might be smokey. Even after a couple resteeps it was just a pleasant cup of tea lol
glad to be finished up with this one….needed a break from caffeine teas before we do some running around tonight for house things. I’ve got 15 more teas to try and get through tonight and let me tell you….holy it’s a long road haha. this is nice enough, but given the choice, i would of course always reach for THE pumpkin ginger tea…
cavocorax sent this one my way and i was glad. I sort of went off trying mint chocolate chip black teas because i really love stacy’s herbal version. Sadly, this one wasn’t a win for me. it’s a nice enough mint chocolate chip, but it’s not strong or enticing enough for me to pick it up in favour of the herbal version. still though, decent cup of mint chocolate chip tea :)
This is another lovely sample sent to me by Angel. I needed something straight to give my taste buds a bit of a break since there are another 20 or so samples i want to try and get through today (insanity! and likely not going to happen….) For those who aren’t aware, greens are not my preferred teas, though i am always willing to give them a shot. Plus, these leaves are super cute! I love the dry smell of this tea…just like fresh grass…but not cut :) Brewed up, this is a really nice cup of tea, though not as delicious as the dragonwell that Angel sent my way. there’s a sharpness to this tea that reminds me a little of that medicinal taste you sometimes get at the end of cough medicine… it’s still a nice enough cup, but i’d take the dragonwell first please :)
