7609 Tasting Notes
i am kind of fried. Things are both going supremely well at work, and at the same time, the crap just keeps getting higher and higher and i can’t seem to dig myself out of things. Finally got a little recognition for the work i’m doing, and then by the afternoon i was drowning again in things. Soooo while i’m still working on my sipdowns and the like, i’m also trying to make sure i have plenty of delicious teas at work to get me through the days. Today i remembered to add a small splash of maple syrup to this one for a tasty first tea today :)
final tea of the night because i’m tired. lol For those of you who drink beer and like ginger…. try this out: http://www.crabbiesgingerbeer.co.uk/drinks/spiced-orange/
but anyway…this tea? in typical peppermint patty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peppermint_Patty) style… this tea is always a hit…mwahahaha ok no really…love this. will continue to stock this in my cupboard until i get tired of it which is likely to be never….tops most mint chocolate blacks that i’ve had. true. story.
Final Count: 127
also a sipdown tonight while i tryied to pick out pain colors for our new apartment…so far we’re thinking of orange living room, yellow kitchen and green bedroom…. of course that leaves the hall, two other bedrooms and the bathroom but hey, baby steps. This doesn’t feel very “nine-like” to me, but that’s ok. As with donna noble, a nice tea, pleasant enough to drink but i’m not sad to see it go…i was much more sad to see 9 go lol (and 10 and 11….)
bumping the rating down on this a little, mostly because i prefer vanilla citrus spice, though this one is still pretty damn tasty. I’m enjoying a cup of this tonight while i finish packaging up a few swaps and packages for tea friends to go out in the mail tomorrow. :) I do like being able to have this one any time though, especially on days when caffeine IS bothering me…not that it happens often lol
Final Count: 131 (thanks to courtney!)
huh. courtney sent this one my way and as a brand new tea! i figured it was worth the pleasure of being tasting note 4200…which isn’t meant so much as a brag, because we all use steepster differently, but more of a way of checking in with myself on how my tea journey is progressing. It will be interesting to see where i land at my steepsterversary in a few months :) I’ve logged nearly 1800 different teas tried, so i figure i’m a little up on that since there are teas that remain unlogged i’m sure.
This tea? A pleasant surprise from courtney and one that i quite like. I’m not generally a fan of green teas, but this one works for me. It’s not really what i’d call a mint tea….strawberry and fruity yes…but the mint (i assume it’s there..) is seriously muted. I feel like the mint is there, because of the way the strawberry is coming through, but i don’t really feel like there’s enough there for me to call this a mint tea. There’s strawberry and orange and bamboo…and a hint of what i’m guessing is the mint. Overall, i really like this! thanks courtney!
