6407 Tasting Notes
another day…another dollar for black friday spending on tea…not a whole lot i want. Long story short since it’s way past bed time, i had this – latte style because it makes me happy :) I am thoroughly enjoying not fussing with sample sipdowns or finishing off teas…because this is my weekend to drink what i want! haha not that i hate sample sipdowns but i’ve decreased my cupboard a bunch over the past while and work stress = tea is my go too small quiet moments during the day where i can zone out, take a deep breath and stop. for. just. one. sip.
I had another cup of this tonight since I might be getting more of this over black friday. If not, i’m not fussed about it since it’s a regular tea with Della Terra so i’m safe from having to moan over it’s removal from the site :) I received my swap teas from cteresa tonight but i’m trying to wait for a bit before i try them so that i can really sit and enjoy them without work hanging over my head. i MIGHT make an exception tomorrow morning for american breakfast haha…anyway, point being that i WAS down to 136 but now i’m back up to 142. However STILL under my black Friday goal so HA! :)
i made a couple cups of this with dinner – first steep with nothing and then added honey for all my subsequent steeps. I think i’ll try this with apple juice or something like that just to see how it fares with that or a nice black base. I’m trying to branch out a little in terms of blending my teas together so this should be a good one to try that with. over all though, this is a fairly tasty blend, as far as herbals go :)
I took a 5 min break today to finally get around to trying this tea. I particularly like vanilla teas as lattes, so i opted for that as my first go around with the tea. I am a fan! I’ll write a better review once i have it straight, but as a latte, i am great with this one! Now i just need to get around to comparing it to the vanilla tea from tao leaf tea in my cupboard heh
I owe Angel and teavivre a better review for this tea – work got insanely busy this afternoon and my first steep cooled before i’d even tried it. Long story short, i’m not a fan of most oolongs. This tea? pretty delicious!
and wow…this has been waiting for several hours for me to finish. not going to happen stupid work. long story short, i need to try this one again when i can pay attention to it. but on the whole, a nice tea, and it you like oolongs, probably even more yummy to you!
sipdown! the first time i had this, i forgot to log it. This time, because of my unfortunate experience brewing this with water, i tried it with milk. Sorry to say but this is not so much a chai to me and mostly a mix of cloves…and more cloves and oh hey, some cloves :) The tea disappears with this particular blend and even after trying to pull out a bit of the cloves, it still is too much for me. Thanks for the share though Alice! It’s helping me figure out what my perfect chai might be like :)
Tastybrew sent this our way in the BBB Box. Since i may want to place another order with Yezi in a couple of days, I figured i’d better try a few more of their offerings so i can place a larger order.
This is a fruity, almost peachy tea. The aroma has a hint of spice to it, though the tea itself does not. There is maltiness to this brew…along with hints of cocoa that blend with the fruitiness. Overall a really nice tea!
Working from home today to give myself a bit of a break. Still far too many things to finish up this week to warrant an actual day off, but at least this way i get to hang out in my pj’s drinking tea and working. Plus the time i save from not having to travel, i can use to watch a bit of TV haha
I picked this one for my first tea this morning because i had it a couple days ago but hadn’t had a chance to actually get some thoughts down about it.
This is a chocolately, malty brew. It’s neither bitter, nor smokey. My only “complaint” is that it feels thin? still delicious and tasty but i keep wanting it to be more full in my mouth. I’ll likely pick this one up once i’m done with the amount that Tastybrew sent to me :)
Edit: 3000 tasting notes!
sipdown! even if it is a fake sort of sipdown, as i’m sending the other half of the sample terri sent me to FuzzyP :) The worst part of today? this review has been sitting open for hours and i can’t even focus enough to write it. Long story short this is a really tasty tea, though i think it’s a little too different for me to keep around always. if that makes sense. it’s fruity, but in a specific sort of peach grape way, as tastybrew said, rather than that generic “fruity” taste i get. thanks for sharing terri! this one’s neat!
