4923 Tasting Notes
Overall a pretty darn productive day. I managed to get my cupboard down to 281, I have two swaps going out the door tomorrow, I have a swap to package up for next weekend. Other half and i got 3 days to spend together; we cleaned the house, did laundry, watched some movies, spent time outside, went to a craft fair, made banana bread and stew, got to sleep in…did some work things, organized my tea cupboard and got ready for April. Might even have some semblance of a vacation planned to go visit montreal, quebec and ottawa in a month.
So i’m relaxing with a cup of this tonight while we watch a few shows. I still don’t see much difference between this one and strawberry pie but it’s still a tea i enjoy. Overall, a satisfying end to satisfying long weekend.
Edit: So i’m totally wired or something right now ‘cause i feel like i’m talking a mile a minute only i’m not talking, i’m typing and my other half it just looking at me like i’m nuts but mostly i just needed to say that i’m sorry walterbishop tea for ever comparing you to strawberry pie. you are so much more than that and ever so much more delicious. wheee!
Thanks to whatshesaid for sending along a few of these tea bags for me to try. I have to say, i wasn’t expecting much when i dropped the tea bag into the liquid and it stayed mostly clear. :) However, after steeping it for a while, the liquid started to turn to a paler golden brown colour.
This is a fairly subtle tea – sweet and caramel like, though not overly intense in terms of flavouring. This will be a good afternoon tea for me to keep around the office, especially since it’s in bag form!
Thank you whatshesaid!
SIPDOWN! Thanks to kittenna for parting with some of her dear chocolate pumpkin pie. I can understand why she likes this one so much as it would be a good travel mug tea. I like that this version is a bit more muted in the spice department than the non chocolate version. I’m not sure which i’d prefer though as I seem to be out of my pumpkin mood – likely because it’s SPRING! it’s SPRING! and spicier teas (chai’s for example) tend to be what i prefer drinking in fall and winter.
overall this is a good little cup of tea and resteeps pretty well.
Picked this one up at the toronto tea festival in February. Figured it was time to drink it since i’m on a roll this weekend. Also, in case you’re wondering yes, yes i am going to the washroom A LOT! lol Good news though? Down to 288 teas! Trying to get through another few more tonight to see if i can manage to get to 275 this week. :)
This one? It’s not too bad, though I also didn’t realise that it had chamomile in it. I’m not getting a lot of caramel in this, instead it’s tastes more like a green chamomile tea. It also tastes weirdly like mint..but i’m not sure if that just because i’m smelling my other tea and thinking that i’m smelling it lol
Thanks to kittenna for this sample.
All i have to say is seriously? People drink this? UGH i’m not sure if it’s the sample i have or what but it pretty much smells like a dog’s butt and doesn’t taste all that great either. Maybe bamboo teas just aren’t my thing. ick. Ah well, at least it’s another one off the list! woot woot!
