6160 Tasting Notes
sipdown! I’m pretty happy about this one, not because i don’t really like this tea, but because the teabox is on it’s second around with me and i have just finally finished the all the teas that arrived the first time it came to me. I’m not sure i can keep up the pace going forward, but i do like being able to not have things in my cupboard for eons.
This has a bit of astringency to it, but not overly so. It’s somewhere in between a malty tea and a sweet tea…a very mellow tea.
Thanks again TB!
(257…how does my dust taste so far terri? lol)
oh man i love this…except my brain thinks this is soup. not tea. thank you kittenna! really…this is super tasty delicious! It’s a savoury tea and though kittenna didn’t get much tomato, i for sure am. The black pepper adds a certain spiciness that i love. I can taste both the pepper and basil in this one. YUM! so glad i got to try this one out!
man… if blueberry cream cheese danish reblend tasted like this i’d be so much happier. theres a little bit of astringency to this, but the blueberry flavouring is pretty nice. it’s not super creamy, but it IS tasty. i added a little sugar and it made it oh so much better,cutting through the slightly astringent taste.
sample sipdown! Thanks kittenna :) This is a pretty decent chai tea. But it’s not pumpkin. It’s got a bunch of ginger in it that makes this an interesting blend and slightly different from some of the other chais that i like, but it’s tasty. Dropped the rating slightly though because pumpkin this is not. :)
SIPDOWN! I’ve been hoarding this tea that terri sent me because it’s been gone for soooo long. But Lily assured us it would be back in short order so i figured i could bust it out today. Mostly because it will give me something to drink most of the morning while i try some of my other samples that may not be as delicious. That way i always have something that i’m drinking to look forward to until i cant get any more steeps out of it lol
i really love this blend. the tea, the spices…it’s just a great mix of everything going on together!
Here we go Terri….first cup of the morning and I KNOW you’re probably still sleeping. This is a sample sipdownfrom Kittenna who was awesome enough to bring it to me since she knows I’m a fan of black straight teas. I haven’t had many Damn fine teas, but those that I have have had a taste that I can get behind. Teas one is no exception. It is not a knock your socks off sort of tea, but it IS a great morning tea. There is a smooth creaminess to this tea, while still being obviously black. It’s not overly bold, rather this is like a more mellow cousin. :) a really nice blend – I’m sure I’ll be up for trying more of get he I limited editions when they come out!
sample sipdown…thank you kittenna for another try of a 52 teas blend! This is a whole lot of cinnamon..and sometimes when i inhaled a little i caught a whiff of banana…but it wasn’t super strong.
In tasting this, it’s pretty astringent, even with the short steeping time. It’s also mostly kinda of like cinnamon water. boooooo oh well better luck next time. HOWEVER! and this is the important part…
I’m at 262 teas…the same as my tea sister terri…so it’s time for a SIPOFF! (i’m making this up as i go along…) So the rules of the game are:
-Tea must be a true sipdown rather than a “i’m swapping this away sipdown”
-Sipdowns officially start tomorrow
-the sipoff will run from Midnight tonight (so friday 12:01am) until midnight Sunday, with the final number being revealed Monday!
-tea that might come in during the sipoff must be set aside as if it hasn’t come in until monday thus not changing the cupboard size until after the sip off
-Winner gets the glory of being the Sipdown Sister Champ until the next time our cupboards coincide!!!
