7609 Tasting Notes
I had this early today to wake myself up. I’ve got work to do as well as some “fun” organising some tea swaps. We also have a bunch of work to do to get a list going of all the things we need to do if we’re really going to move to another apartment within the complex we’re living in right now.
This was a sample from Stacy, and i have to be honest, i’m not yet sure how i feel about it. I was initially getting a bit of a bitter note that i didn’t like, but then with a longer steep there was much more pleasant smokiness and a bit of spiciness to it. Overall, i think i may need to order this one later to really play with it :)
ugh…almost out of this one too..but i needed something delicious for my shopping yesterday to help with my stress level lol. I hate shopping. This will be a restock for sure, but thankfully this will still give me a few more cups before i am totally out of all forms of LB in my house haha
Final Count yesterday: 142
Another one from terri, that is still really tasty, but just slightly less so than the other couple i’ve had. This one leaves an after taste in my mouth that i’m less a fan of. HOWEVER, i wouldn’t turn this one down, nor would i discount the possibility of picking it up again because i can see it being just what i need on cooler winter mornings :) strong, smooth with a little reminder left over of what i was drinking heh. thanks terri!
mmmm i figured that i’d better start my morning off with a few cups of bold/stronger tea. I’ve got to go wedding dress shopping today and i need something to get me through it. I hate this sort of thing, though i’m sure i’l have fun with my friend and her 6 month old lol those bridal ppl have no idea what they’re in for! thanks again to terri for sharing this one with me. I think i’d be likely to pick this one up again in the future. I still love lord petersham, but this is a pretty tasty one as well
this is how i make VariaTEA and Cavocorax come pick up the first wave of their boxes…by drinking all our shared teas soon so they show up on their dashboard lol. I pulled this one out yesterday to drink up and man…sooo good. I generally am not a fan of coconut teas but this one is really creamy and delicious. it’s even better having it “fresh” since the last time i had it, it was via justjames so i let it sit a bit longer before trying it as part of all my samples. I’m seriously glad james created this one AND shared it with me so that i could then promptly order it when it was live hahaha
Final Count yesterday: 144
backlog from yesterday as i didn’t get home until late since we went out to try and get me a little bit of the long weekend since i get to work sunday and monday. GO GO 25+ hrs of over time a week. FML. on the upside? extra money for moving, since i think we’re going to do it…and less guilt when i place tea orders hahaha. this one was terri’s addition to the BBB Box and once i’ve enjoyed, though not as intensly as some of the others from YS. Rest is off to Cavo…mostly because now i know she has to pick the box up hahahahahaha
excuse me, coming through, drool city! last stop – CHIN!…..
Seriously…this was tucked away from when i picked it up in vancouver but since i have to divy up cavo’s teas, i’m allowed to open it! and open it i did… now i have to try not to drink it all because man oh man there is something i just love the crap out of in this tea. I SHOULD try it with milk again but tonight i just wanted it…NAO! and i’m in happy land.
Final Count: 145 yes..it’s gone up, my butiki order arrived, but before that i was down to 133! go me! So we’ll see how tomorrow goes and aim for….maybe 135 over the weekend? we’ll see…something like that haha
