4889 Tasting Notes
Awe yeah! So this was my “something to look forward to tea” today since the custom blend arrived yesterday from Stacy. In retrospect i probably should have just tried it last night since i made it this morning and it’s sat in my travel mug all morning because i got busy.
I’ll give it another go over the next few days as well to give stacy some feedback but overall this is pretty darn tasty :) I much prefer it over frank’s honeybush strawberry rhubarb (since i get no rhubarb taste in his, just less cinnamon than strawberry pie).
I’m glad we went with a little bit of hibiscus in this one since it brings just a little tartness to the party, which is evident in all strawberry rhubarb pie!
Holding off on all my final thoughts on this though (as well as rating it) since i don’t think my travel mug does it justice and i’m super swamped at work and therefore not half as focused as i want to be.
Really happy this is finally in my hands :)
Oh yeah! such a good thing too since last night i received my small order from Stacy as well as tea samples from a friend of mine. Included in that delicious and wonderful packages of amazginess was my custom blend from Stacy. Coming soon to a store near you :)
I decided to celebrate by finishing off a couple of teas this morning since i now have 120 servings of my tea LOL. Not to mention Red Leaf is temping us all with the possibility of GC’s paying for 50% of an order for new reviews…so i need room in my cupboard!
afternoon tea! Enjoying this one since i havne’t had it in a bit. I have two packages waiting for me at home but I have no idea if it’s tea hopehopehopehopehopeit’smyordercomingfromstacy or board games since both are on their way. :) Life is good with tea and board games and anyone who says otherwise is not correct haha.
Drinking this tea always makes me wish for a straight up Maple tea from stacy…one of these days i should combine maple pecan and creamy eggnog for creamy eggnog maple tea haha
I think this still holds true for a black tea that I drink without much thought. That means it’s not a bad tea but it doesn’t knock my socks off. In otherwords this could be a decent staple in my cupboard for when i need a nice pleasant black tea to drink. :) Neaaaaarly a sipdown sigh had to stop myself from overleafing just to be able to call it a sipdown lol
Apparently i’m in full on sipdown mode. This should be finished up this week of if i get a few more smoothies in with it, so i’m going for it. I’m starting to hit the wall of flavours i’m not crazy about so i’ll need to figure out what my plan is for them over the weekend lol. I have declisious wonderful flavours waiting to be opened so I need to get cracking on sipping the others down.
This morning i added a bit of white chocolate matcha to this one and that also helped to soften the taste of this one that i find a bit harsh. Overall i’m just happy to be starting my day with matcha smoothies again! :)
Sip down! Man I really need a weekend so that I can get organized and get some of this tea out the door lol. I’m trying to get at least one sip down in a day, which is harder than it sounds since most of me tea has a few cups worth. However, there are a few that I can do a reasonably decent job of in a day or two. I’m also starting to organize my cupboard and pull out things that I’m willing to swap or want to swap.
So this tea? I’m actually a fan of it. It’s creamy and tangy and peachy and delicious. It’s not overly hibiscusy, and as a result there’s a really creamy peach vibe going on. I would for sure order this again, though preferably in summer so I can make it iced!
Tried this again today..dropped the temperature a bit down from boiling and steeped for about 2.5 mins. That seems to have done wonders for this tea and makes it a much more enjoyable cup of tea. That being said, is it creme brûlée? No. Is it a tasty dessert tea? Yes. I’m choosing not to increase the rating though since its not really cremem brûlée, which is what’s should taste like. Still though, a tasty c up if you’re in the moods or a dessert tea.
mmmm picked this one out of the line up since I’m getting close to the end of it and it’s a lighter tea that i thought would balance out the black tea i also brought in to work with me. This is still one of my happy teas from Stacy, though I really should get around to trying to cold brew it one of these days. I think it might be a decent cold brew in summer.
