5121 Tasting Notes
Soooo i can get behind this tea. One of my coworkers who knows that i love tea saw the kind of week i’ve been having and not only went to her stash of tea to brew me a cup of tea and brought it to my desk, but also handed off a few of her samples to me as she’d recently been in to david’s to buy new teas. One of the teas she had purchased with this one.
Overall? not a bad little tea. It’s not nearly as artificial tasting as a bunch of teas i’ve had recently and it smells nice. so today…that’s about all it takes. is it friday yet?
So if i’m going to catch up to dinosara, i’m going to have to start focusing on the bags of tea where i’m only a few cups away from being done. So with that in mind, I’m having this one today. Dry aroma smells decent enough however the brewed tea isn’t anything much to write home about. Another diappointing 52 teas blend, though at least this one doesn’t have that weird chemically taste the others seem to be having. I still need to air my teas out and see if that helps.
269….12 days to sip down as much as possible! here goes nothing! :) If nothing else, this is incentive to try all the teas that i have in my cupboard.
I feel like i need to go apologise to walter bishop. I’ve totally been calling that tea almost the same thing as this tea…but apparently it’s actually just the MEMORY of this tea. I much prefer walter bishop now that i’ve drank them both in closer proximity to one another. Not that i don’t enjoy this tea but i REALLY like the smooth creaminess of the walter bishop tea better. Dropping the rating on this one a little since after 1.5 bags of this, it’s fading on me. It’ll be one of those teas that might cycle through my cupboard once a year but nothing that needs to stay in as a permanent blend unless i’m looking for more caffeine free blends…not that caffeine seems to affect me. I still feel compelled to have a bunch on hand, just in case, for guests.
Split purchase with raritea from the toronto tea festival. This is supposed to be a blueberry muffin but i think it’s more muffin than blueberry. That being said, the rooibos in this makes for a pretty decent baked muffin kind of tea. Just wish it was a WEEEEEEEEE little bit more blueberry.
mmmmmmmmmm muffins! wheee!
cherry cough syrup drizzled on inferior quality chocolate? apparently. ick. Not a fan of this one in the least. It’s not a terrible tea but i for sure would prefer to not drink it than drink it since there are so many other teas out there that have better flavour and tea notes to them. Happy to have tried it but that’s about as far as that goes. eesh
As i was brewing this up i was trying to figure out what it was reminding me of. kittenna nailed it – David’s tea: glitter n gold. Less gold spinkles, more cinnamon and less sweet than David’s IMO. Over all not a bad tea but i really only needed this one cup to drink. The rest can go into the swap box!
