7977 Tasting Notes
sipdown! farewell December tea :) Not sure that i’ll get through January’s teas this month as there are a LOT of them, but it is nice to at least know that when there are months that i’ve purchased less tea, i’ll make up some of that time. I’m really just doing it to be conscious about drinking my “older” teas even though i realise some ppl would love to have cupboards as “fresh” as mine lol.
I have quite enjoyed this one, though the reality is, i’d prefer 50g quantities from teavivre more than 100g in nearly every instance. Otherwise i start to feel like it’s too much to drink up. :) Not sure if i’ll reorder this one even if it is a lovely tea, ONLY because there are others i prefer more from Teavivre :)
Only one sad cup left of this in the pouch after today’s cup. I’ll likely hold off reorder this one though until the fall months. It’s a great fall/winter tea but in summer i find it much harder to drink even though i love it. Good news is, that’s almost one more of my December teas wrapped up, since this month i should be trying to get through January teas.
SIPDOWN! sad day in the Sil household…i love this tea from stacy and it was a great one to have today while the rain was falling this morning. Tasty delicious notes of honey…similar and yet different from TTC teas. This one still has a higher spot in my affections :) Will restock for sure at a later date!
omgsrsly sent this one my way and since i have enough for a couple cups, i’m trying to go through the first round of all her straight black samples this week for easy sipdowns next week haha
This one isn’t bad, though i think it’s more of a with milk sort of tea as there’s an edge in here that i’m struggling with this morning. Either that, or it’s going to be one of those days for me and tea haha. I do like the strength of this one though, so it’s an enjoyable cup. I’m glad i have another sil sized serving to play with haha thanks omg!
i have a confession to make – i can’t stand this tea brewed normally in water. there’s way too much fennel in it to make me happy. HOWEVER….this steeped in half apple juice/half water; cold brewed is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! it’s like an apple cider sort of delicious berry tea. Thankfully i remembered to pick up some apple juice so i will have this finished up in no time! woot woot! (steeped that way, my rating would be in the 90’s…so i compromised since i don’t like it normally brewed)
Final Count: 171
oh december teas… how you will be gone from my cupboard..someday! lol i have one more cup of this left since today there was just a little too much tea for a sipdown heh. i’m actually not terribly upset by that because i rather enjoy this one with just a little maple syrup…yes VariaTEA… A LITTLE! not a tablespoon! lol
must remember to have the last of this as a latte. Another sample from OMGSRSLY?!?!?! because i have to get my drink on! Not a sipdown but it’s one step closer to one…and a step closer to getting rid of the boxes of samples in my house at the moment lol I’m not sure what a hazelberry is…but this is tasty and delicious and i will be enjoying more!
another from the omgsrsly sample box of doooooom. I’m trying to make a concentrated effort to get a couple of sipdowns in every day to make up for lost time, ESPECIALLY now that i’m basically going to be travelling for the entire month of september…which may not result in a lot of opportunities to buy tea but i DO get a week back in chicago and i KNOW i can buy tea there lol this was a cold brew and not bad. it’s passable as an almost pear tea, while at least being a decent cup of tea without weird bitterness or silly flavours. I’d love more OOMPH but this one wasn’t terrible, esp considering it’s a teavana tea!
