3707 Tasting Notes
Sipdown! (181) Since i’ll be away from my cupboard for a few days and don’t feel like going through the hassle of packing up a tea basket and such since i’m only bringing a small suitcase, i’m enjoying a few teas today as well as getting in a couple sipdowns. I fulle expect tea to show up while i’m away so i need to make sure not coming home to 200+ teas. At least i still have 3 weeks to get to 150. :)
I added a slice of orange to this one today since lala’s done that on a few occasions and i thought it would be fun to experiment with my last cup. It’s adding just a bit of sweetness, along with the orange to this cup and turning it into something entirely different and yet just as deliciously good! Maybe i’ll try a few others like that today heh…maybe.
cup of this while finishing up the first season of fringe. I’d totally forgotten about the crazy guy who believes he’s spock. So good. lol. Packed for tomorrow and checked in for my flight so now i just have to sleep, get up and eat, drink some tea and then head to the airport. Going to be a nice relaxing sunday!
semi sipdown! finished up my bag from august this morning so now i just have the ounce left from my december order :) I might have to pick up a few more ounces if i make a verdant order this month, just to keep a decent sized stock of this in the house :) Such a good cup to wake up with in the morning!
sipdown! (181) I was hoping to get to 180 tonight since i HAD time to actually drink tea tonight, but i think that i’ll end just shy of that goal unless i can find another herbal that’s close to being finished. I like this one, and it was quite the contrast to the spicy of the fireside. Of course that also meant that the “sweet” of the licorice was intensified lol. Still though, a neat blend to have tried, though not a restock! thanks again dexter!
sipdownd of this one. Second cup around there’s a flavour in here i do not like. I can handle the spicy heat of this, but there’s an almost soapy? floral? flavour in the background that i’m not happy with. That being said, this makes me want to go dig sichuan caravan out of the cupboard and have that for the other sort of spicy ginger love it flavour. Thanks for sharing this dexter!
sipdown! thanks missb i LOVE the way this one smells. Brewed up it’s also really quite tasty! Such that i may need to think about picking up a small quantity of this in future. :) It’s tangy without being pucker face sour and it smells wonderful! I have a feeling this wouldn’t be too bad as a cold brew either :)
sipdown! mostly because i really need to drink up some of these teas because HOLY THERE ARE TEA STORES IN CHICAGO! like close to the hotel…i can handle a 25 min walk for tea. I anticipate leaving early from work on monday and going to buy tea….just a hunch. I’m sure that now that i’ve said that, the world will conspire to keep me away from everything tea related but a girl’s gotta try!
this tea was less yummy the second time around but still decent enough to enjoy. not a restock though as there are others i prefer. Appreciate it though dexter! i’ve had a lovely time with these :)
