5926 Tasting Notes
Tying to catch up on things, though it won’t go well. I have company for the next week or so and I’m sick. So yeah. My order from teavivre came and I’m trying to drink a few of the sample sizes I picked up so that I don’t technically have to add them to my cupboard :) saving a couple of them for mornings when we’re in the hotel.
A far as this one goes, it’s not blueberry enough for me (though that may be the sick factor) and I don’t like the tartness in it. I was hoping for something a little sweeter. However, if you add a little sugar and don’t tik of blueberry, this is would be a great cold brew for summer. :)
stupid steepster…ate my tasting note. soooo tried to use today to compare this vs stacy’s taiwan tea but i forgot which was which…and not that it should be difficult to tell but it’s been a while. soooo at least i have enough for another cup of this and i’ll just do a three way comparison with this, lot 157 and stacys’ haha
I’ve been trying to make my days a little better by having a teas I really like rather than risking the only tea I’m managing to make with sip downs or samples. Makes for awful tasting note because I’m so exhausted but good tea times.. This is a tea I want to save some to compare against Stacy’s Taiwanese Assam and lot 157? That I also have from this company. Regardless, anyone who enjoys Taiwanese teas should really check this company out. They have excellent customer service, sample sizes that are great for sharing and delicious, delicious teas….
this was a sipdown from nicole the other day. dying here from being sick and working 12+ hours days this week since sunday…can’t tell you anything about this tea besides the fact that i took 2 mins to put it on my shopping list. that should be all you need if you know the kind of teas i like.
thanks so much nicole
So final verdict on this one? I don’t want it. Not, i don’t like it because i DO like the flavouring but to me this is really just creamy eggnog without the bits that make it creamy eggnog. IE. it’s a delicious tea…but it’s not really birthday cake to me (except in how pretty it is). I love that it’s a herbal…love that it’s light and refreshing but it’s not cake. Do i think it’s an enjoyable cup that wouldn’t disappoint people? Sure! but i’d rather stock creamy eggnog in my cupboard than this one and save my “herbal” slots for teas like stacy’s peppermint patty and rootbeerfloat! :)
