5781 Tasting Notes
sipdown! (237) This is a sipdown thanks to the lovely nicole who is getting the rest of this one to try out! There was just a wee bit left at the end of packaging this up for her, so i had one last little cup to send it on it’s way. I didn’t mind this one and thoroughly enjoyed having it around but given the choice, i’ll take #49 first :)
SIPDOWN! (238) And so begins the start of operation clean up. Clean up as in, drink my old teas first while working on all the small amounts of tea i have that will be done in 2-3 cups. once that’s done or at least more sorted out, i can focus on drinking the teas i’ve got in my cupboard that i haven’t even tried yet. LOL. I don’t mind this one but it’s not my favourite. I reminds me of the pumpkin caramel cheescake tea from frank but not nearly as tasty heh. overall not a bad little blend though. Thanks for sending this my way cavo!
sooo I need to get back on track with sipping down my 52 teas so i figured i’d keep up with the cold brewing of this one. I don’t usually add things to my teas, so i suspect that’s why i didn’t like this one hot. But cold brewed, with sweetner – oh that hits the spot. It’s like liquid cotton candy. Yep. Not bad, but i’m not bumping the rating since i don’t like it hot!
thank you cavocorax for sending some of this one my way! Kittenna inspired me to try this out tonight which is good because it’s also a close sipdown haha soon! I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while now. I’m not sure what i expected from this one since it is my first decaf black tea. I feel like tea shouldn’t be decaf for whatever reason so yeah.
Overall this isn’t bad. I still think that unless i’m pregnant or something where i need to restrict my caffeine intake, i’d rather just drink a regular old black tea. I might try H&S’s normal vanilla and see how that compares.
On the whole though? this isn’t half bad. It’s not quite what i want. I’d for sure drink this again, but i don’t know that i’d keep it on hand, unless i needed none caffeine options. But for now? i don’t so ha! lol
sipdown! (239) Another one from my swap with shmiracles and i have to say this one has grown on me the second time around. Bumping up the rating a little as i’m enjoying it tonight. being oolong it’ll never be my favourite but this is another that i would drink from time to time when i was crazing that green taste :)
oh man… i love this tea. I think i need to sit down with all my deliciously juicy assams and figure out which one is best. this one reminds me of the tea that i am currently lusting after from butiki (it’s almost here!!!!) though slightly different. I really like this one….it’s an assam but it’s not your typical malty, rosty dark :)
Another tea from Laurent. This was my second go at this tea and it’s just not the tea for me. this is a little better the second time but it’s not my favourite tea. i taste a lot more peach in this blend than other fruits, which is maybe why it’s not quite the tea for me. it’s a decent enough tea but as far as peach teas go, there are others i prefer. I just wish i could figure out how to get the other flavours to pop a bit more.
Another Sample from the wonderful Nina’s Tea! Seriously folks, take them up on their generous offer and try a few of their samples! because i have a number of teas on their way and because of Bonnie’s tasting not today, i was inspired to try this one out. I don’t usually drink mint teas unless they’re chocolate mint teas but i can say that this tea here is a good one! The mint in this isn’t overly intense but it’s still obviously a mint tea. I really find this to be a smooth, refreshing tea! Thank you Laurent!
