7475 Tasting Notes
always on the search for more ginger teas – especially non caffinated ones, i picked this up while at bayswater. I was originally going to get the ginger pineapple, but when i smelled this one, i knew it was the way to go. This is like lime gelato from david’s tea but less sugar and more spicy kick! Again, i could handle more ginger but on the whole, this is a really tasty one. it’s got just enough ginger to satisfy me and accompanies the lime really nicely. So glad i opted for this one over the pineapple since i think that wouldn’t have been as nice.
I picked this up on my travels this past week and since courtney was stepping in to bayswater she had me go try this and report back to her lol. Not that she likely wouldn’t have bought it anyway after smelling it because this one smells DEEELICIOUS! but i was happy to report back that this one is quite tasty! There is cinnamon in this, and what appears to be popcorn. That being said, this is clearly a maple tea. But it’s maple+ lol Not sure how else to describe it really. I’m not sure if i’d call this taffy but it’s maple yum. and that’s good enough for me today!
eep! Sorry MissB this is not one for me. I tried brewing this in milk today to see if i could get rid of the weird bitterness that i wasn’t a fan of when brewed in water – it didn’t help enough. For sure the taste was improved but the spices are just the wrong ratio/blend for me. Glad to have tried it though!
mmm another sipdown from this morning. Thank you again charlotteZero for sending this my way. I’m not sure i’d have picked this up myself ever given the generic “red fruit” in the description which i’ve come to not enjoy, but this, this is delightful. I’ve really enjoyed drinking this one so i’m super glad you sent it along for me to try. Thanks again!
Another sipdown from this morning! Let me tell you after a little over a week of waking up and being able to draw back the curtains and see the ocean and mountains…today was an adjustment…hello brick wall of the other apartment building…so nice to see you. sorry we’ve missed you..NOT. lol I love this one from teavivre and will be ordering more once i get into a better position to stock up again. Malty, chocolatey goodness.
well now that i’m almost organised for tomorrow, i figure i should log a few of the teas i’ve had this morning. I left for vancouver with 139 teas in my cupboard and came back to a cupboard of 158 (with one incoming swap).
This is a sipdown, since i need to work in a few of those to justify my 20 tea purchase! (oh and a few teas are living with Cavo at the moment…so technically i’m a bit higher).
I thoroughly enjoyed this one from F&M – better than the queen Anne, but nothing to hold in my cupboard forever and ever. This is a good every day sort of tea that is good for those times when you don’t really want to think about the tea you’re drinking, you just want to enjoy it while you do things :)
Sipdown! Bringing me down to 137….not that it’s going to help much since holy crap I bought 21 teas while here….guess no buying in May unless I can have a really productive Sunday. Heh. I know there are a we few sipdown teas waiting for me at home, but I’m not sure it’ll be enough.
This tea will be on me reorder list for sure. It is a delicious, delicious black tea that has made. My Vancouver mornings even more wonderful…. It has a strength to it while not being overly in my face….and the flavours out of thinks one make me sit up and take note with every sip. I never expect it to be nearly as yummy as it is every time I take a sip lol.
Sipdown! Yay! Not that it really counts since I’ve purchased tea while on a vacation but at least it will be one less to a) bring all the way ack home and b) sipdown to try and make my goal when I DO get home.
My other half and I have settled in to a great routine in the evening here….we cook dinner, sit on the balcony, play a game, go down to the whirlpool and then either play another game or watch a tv show before bed. I’m really going to miss our evenings here when we get home so we’ll have to see if we can find a way to keep it up on week nights I don’t have to work heh
I feel like I’ve had this tea way more often than I’ve logged it. It’s a tea that is similar in profile to Stacy’s wild mountain tea….though different enough that the two are unique teas. I’m not sure how often I’d restock this as I’m partial to the sun moon lake Assam if I have to choose just one, but I’d be happy enoug rotating sample sizes of the lots in to my cupboard from time to time, esp with free shipping on those at 25$
Final count: 138 (however there are teas to be purchased here and teas probably waiting for me at home…)
