5059 Tasting Notes
So i wanted to try this as a cold brew since the warm cup i had was more raspberry than sponge cake. It turns out, the cake was hiding in the cold brew :) This is a creamy cup of delicious cake like tea. I am digging this. Now i just need to try and figure out how to get this taste with a hot brew!
mmmm another tasty black courtesy of Terriharplady! This is a pretty enjoyable keemun. I think, as I have more of them, i’m coming to learn that i tend to prefer assams over keemuns, though i don’t find keemuns objectionable. I like the maltiness of this particular keemun. There isn’t a lot of smoke happening in this tea, which is nice as i don’t need much of that this morning. There is some though, and it adds a nice depth to this tea. Overall a pretty decent little number!
I figured with my senses being off, i might as well taken this opportunity to try out the bergamot filled tea that Hallieod sent my way :) She did warn me that it was coming, so no harm there. Turns out, that i’m ok with earl grey cream. Mostly because to me? It tastes like lemon. Which may or not be weird. Holding off on rating this one for now until my sinuses and such clean up but so far, not a terrible cup, though still nothing i’d ever be ordering for myself :)
thank you halieod for sending some of this along with our swap. Even though i’m slightly sick – ie. congested and my sense of taste is a little off, i figured that I would have a cup last night since i figured the raspberry would cut through things. I was right! This was a lovely cup of tea, though i’m sad to say that i didn’t get much in the way of “cake.” it came across as more like a raspberry tea than anything. I’m hoping that this is just because my tastebuds are off so i’ll withhold rating it until i’m better. Either way it was still a lovely cup of tea that i quite enjoyed :) I’m looking forward to trying my other samples when i get them.
sipdown! a sil sized cup for me and a share with a friend :) Thanks terri for sending some of this my way. For an oolong? this ain’t half bad…for a peach tea, there’s a bit of an after taste here that is sitting funny in my mouth this morning. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with my sinuses being messed up, but it’s not my favourite taste. That being said though, it’s not a bad taste, just an after taste that it’s my fav. Overall this is a pretty decent tea. I like that the peach has a bit of sour too it, as if they’re slightly on the unripe side. But not enough to detract from the peach taste. thanks again terri!
backlog sipdown! (223, after some adds and deletions but there’s another box waiting at the post office for me….eek!)
Another tea that went off to my friend last night after sharing a cup. I don’t think i’d reorder this but not because it isn’t a lovely tea. I just don’t love the taste of marzipan so it wouldn’t be something i would need to have on hand lots. I would however pick this up now and then in the sampler size to have a few cups :)
