5605 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! Nearly time for some caffeine free blends to sipdown while I watch a little tv and relax before I have to try and run some errands before the all nighter tonight. As much as I’ve enjoyed this one, I think that I don’t need to restock it. I much prefer Stacy’s other Assam. Theres an astringency in this one that threatens to come out if you don’t pay attention to it that I’m less fond of. Still a good solid cup of tea but not my favourite Stacy tea :)
mmmm. it’s official, i would love this even more without the coconut. I relaly like the mint and pineapple but with the addition of the coconut it gets to be a bit muddled and doesn’t seem nearly as tasty as it could be. Tossing the last of this in for a cold brew to see if that makes things any more exciting and different! :)
sipdown (223) I promise it won’t just be sipdowns today but i DO have lots to drink up if i’m going to reach my goal for this weekend. The rest of this is off to my tea sister so that she gets a chance to drink this as well. Part of the fun of having similar tastes is that it makes sharing that much more fun :) I’d order this again if i needed a decent black brew :)
SIPDOWN!(224) I tried cold brewing this one to see if the flavours would be more to my liking. Turns out as a cold brew this is a very green tea. The flavours get a little lost in the cold brew. Overall, this isn’t my favourite tea – but that’s not surprising given that it’s a green tea and my preferences lean towards black/puerh. Still glad to have tried it so thank you shmiracles!
SIPDOWN! (226) Thanks again to cavo for letting me try this. After a few cups of this i’ve come to the conclusion that while i enjoy it, it’s not something that is out of this world enough to need to keep in my cupboard. I like the lemon addition to the chai but i prefer other chais that i have…though now i might try adding lemon to them :) However, still a pretty darn tasty tea!
Backlog from yesterday. Apparently i was a little tired – came home early and pretty much slept until this morning. It’s sipdown saturday/sunday but i won’t have much time to focus on tea drinking. Release weekend!
I’m aiming to get to 215 this weekend, though i’m not sure how mangeable that is given that i’m currently sitting at 227. But i sure as heck can try! :)
I pulled this one out yesterday because i haven’t had it in a while. It’s still a delicious creamy cakelike tea that is for sure a good one to have for those days you just want liquid deliciousness lol
had this in the morning. I have a bunch of tea to try and drink tomorrow morning/afternoon before i have to head out to the middle of nowhere to hang out from 6pm-6am. ugh. This is one of those teas that only had a couple cups left so i opted for one this morning and likely tomorrow. I can feel the call of tea ordering…taunting me. Really need to hold off for a bit longer but there’s a part of me that just wants to order naaaaoo!
i still really enjoy this tea. it’s got a nice richness to it, though it’s not quite as strong and bold as i want it to be. still, i’d never turn down a cup!
