5075 Tasting Notes
Pretty much took a sip of this, made a face, took another sip and then poured the rest down the drain. It was like a mix of licorice and ginger…which wouldn’t be too bad, but it wasn’t the delicious kind of licorice. Not to mention that i pulled the star anise out of the brew basket before brewing it. so yeaaah. no. thankfully, sipdown!
Having a few delicious cups of this with dinner tonight. Cilantro in the enchiladas! and cilantro in the tea! that’s pretty much the only reason i did that, plus it’s so very nearly a sipdown lol AND my mango lassi tasting note reminded me that i do have this other mango blend from stacy
I am enjoying the fruity mango-ness of this tea quite a bit :)
backlogging from earlier today
I am still enjoying this one quite a bit, though i’m not sure if i’ll restock it. I tend to find that there are other flavoured teas i moev towards first when i’m looking for a rooibos. That being said, I would love another mango flavoured black or something like that from stacy as this is pretty kick ass in terms of mango-licious taste!
mmmmm this tea isn’t have bad. Either that, or I’ve lowered my expectation of Tealux slightly. Overall, depending on the pricing of these pearls compared to others, it might be worth carrying them as a back up staple in the cupboard. This is a decent black overall though. Not as malty or as robust as i’d like but not weak or astringent.
Mmmm morning latte again because of the horrible weather. I seriously have zero desire to go to work today especially since its been late work nights the past couple. While this is pretty tasty, I for sure need to either bust out the hand blender when I make these or finally go get a matcha whisk and start trying that. My whisking skills are just not quite up to the task. Still, it wasn’t a terrible attempt and its nice to have something creamy and warm in the morning. :)
Guys! I am TOTALLY in the home stretch…well mostly, provided no teas show up tomorrow, though i also kind of want them to lol SIPDOWN! Bringing my grand total to 208 and i still have Friday and Saturday! If i don’t manage it, it’s going to be awfully close :) Of course the week after I’ll be back to adding teas into my cupboard but at least i’ll be able to try and keep it around the 200 mark…still aiming for 150 by november heh.
I save this tea for the last of the day because I wanted to pay attention to it. Last time i gulped it down distractedly without taking notes. Soo i um may have accidentally steeped this one for about 25 mins LOL
The good news? It’s only slightly more hibiscusy than i would want. It also REALLY reminds me of another tea. it’s appley and cinnamony and i just enjoy this one. quite a bit. yep tasty! i think this would be pretty good cold too if the hibiscus didn’t overpower everything.
