7525 Tasting Notes
Terri sent this my way and i was surprised that i hadn’t yet tried this one from Stacy. I’m not sure that this would be on my top ten tea list from stacy, but it is a unique tea for sure, and one that i wouldn’ turn down if offered. that’s mostly because darjeelings tend to be hit or miss for me. I really like the strength of this tea and the maltiness….and the aroma. for whatever reason, the aroma of this one is just a happy time for m this morning. I’ve been sitting here inhaling the cup and smiling every time haha thanks terri!!
Another tea from shmiracles. I was hoping for a bit of zing from the ginger but i’m finding instead that this is mostly just lapsang. It could just be that there wasn’t a lot of ginger in the bag or something. On the plus side, this isn’t a bad lapsang and with alittle bit of maple it smoothed out into a rather tasty cup. thanks shmiracles!
I figured since it’s likely i’ll be placing a verdant order in the near future for some old favourites that are back, i should have a bit more of this as i’ll probably need to order some more of this tea to hit free shipping threshold.
don’t get me wrong, that’s not a hardship since i love this tea but i also don’t want to just start stock piling it and have 10 oz in the house lol. last time i ordered 4oz and thankfully i’m down to my last 2 oz or so…maybe less.
this was my first cup this morning because charlottezero is awesome and will be sending me some more so i treated myself to a cup with breakfast before heading out to the spa for my massage. I can claim like 90% back through work so there’s no reason for me to not take advantage more often! I still love this one as a chocolate tea that isn’t trying to be all sweet and crap :)
172 to 156…that’s right! woot woot! Running out of small samples to drink but hey…still the whole weekend to drink drink drink! last tea of the evening and i am loving it. just really enjoying this one over the past couple of days and a tasty, creamy, fruity cup of yum!
Final Count: 156 (16 to go…3 more days…will she do it folks…will she do it…)
i kind of like the idea of bruce banner being green with a side of chamomile giggling This isn’t a bad blend, but mostly it’s full of chamomile. This is a very calming blend and a nice almost end cap to the day. Relaxing and drinking this with my other tea and watching a bit of tv before tucking in to bed. yay for the weekend… (oh and thank you shmiracles for this one!)
this was another really lovely tea from missB I’m not sure that i’d call this cranberry, but then i wonder if that’s because i’m so used to cranberry “cocktail.” Either way this is a really nicely blended, fruity tea. there’s little bitterness here and it’s just a lovely cup overall. I’m looking forward to trying more assam company’s teas in the future!
