5925 Tasting Notes
Sip down! Had a couple of cups of this today. I had mostly wanted to try this since I love Stacy’s pineapple oolong and enjoyed teh version i had from lupicia. I wanted to see how another version compares so I picked up a small amount of this one over the weekend. Final verdict? Meh. I much prefer the other two versions…this one has a floral note to it that I don’t like and comes across as a little too artificial tasting, though it does smell heavenly!
Oh man….first tasting note and its going to be a crappy one :) ill likely save the other half of this sample size until I get home and can properly write a decent note. I had this in the morning and ran through a few steepings of this while we made breakfast. Took a cup out to the dock to sit and drink while I just rested, and took in the wonderful scenery. This puerh is pretty tasty, though its nothing that blew my mind. It is something I could drink every day though and may look to reorder once I get around to sorting things out.
There is no cherry joy in my cherry joy….it’s a coconut joy with a bit of fruit in the background which is likely cherry but might not be :) I do like the base tea of this one, though I am not a fan of coconut. If you DO like coconut and cherry this is the tea for you, emphasis on the coconut :) still happy to have tried this one as its another tea off my list! Thank you CHAroma!
So I feel a little guilty about my crappy tasting notes this week but I’m just happy I’m actually getting to drink some tea this “vacation” :) at this point I’m really just trying to track what I’m drinking so that when I go back I can possibly add details and/or rate them since iPad rating is the suck!
I managed to visit a tea shop in Ottawa while I was out there and picked up another 6 teas….there’s a package sitting at home for me to pick up and I HOPE the travelling tea box is waiting for me when I get home or arrives shortly after. I also have tea that once cavocorax picks up from my place, I’m going to have to add to my cupboard…so I suspect that I’m sitting closer to 250. But I’m going to continue living in denial until I get home haha! Then it’s back to no tea orders until I get things under control. :)
Thanks CHAroma! Looking forward to trying some of the black bagged teas you sent now that I’m through these ones :) I don’t find that the green tea really adds anything to this one. For all intents and purposes it might as well just be a cup of mint or something. Not sure…it’s just nothing special :)
Tea bag sip down! (I’m so nowhere even sort of close to 200 anymore…and I was soooo close). So I don’t want to hear anything from any of you but I LIKE this one lol apparently a green earl grey isn’t too bad a tea to me. Much prefer it to some of the black earl greys that I’ve had. Haha. So thank you CHAroma! The bergamot is a little more mellow or something, which is creating a not to bad cup of tea. :)
Teabagsipdown! Tank you CHAroma! I have to say that this one got a good sniff after being brewed and then after a quick sip, it may have started its journey down the drain. In part because I dislike jasmine it also because this doesn’t smell a lot like jasmine..just a random floral scent. Th taste wasn’t much better. My other half said it smelled like aunt jemima’s underwear…whatever that means lol
Tea bag sip down! Aka time for me to try all the green tea bags that CHAroma sent me to try! So there will be a few of these since I’m not as partial to green tea as black teas, so I’m getting the folks here to drink some of these with me :) they could use some sort of intake other than beer lol
This one is pretty tasty for a bagged tea. Of all the greens that CHAroma sent me, I think this one will end up being my favourite.
Simple sip down! Another “not adding to this to my cupboard” tea! Had this in the morning when we woke up so that my friend could try. I couldn’t handle sleeping in the same room with my snoring fiend so I made my other half pitch a tent last night so we could sleep in it! Soooo much fun! Sleeping in a tent at the cottage :) it’s raining today too so we get to sleep in the tent while its raining and I’m super happy about it! I adore the great outdoors…and when you can do it occasionally, it’s a nice time…especially since there’s the house 2 feet away hahaha
I like this one a lot, but likely not a restock since I prefer my tea to be tea. It would be a tasty “juice” for the little ones.
