5401 Tasting Notes

thank you terri! for saving some of this for me. I am really enjoying this version of snaily tea. It’s sweet and malty and mostly just really great this morning. It’s got a pastry, honey sort of thing going on, that is just the thing to kick off my really long day. I’ve got an overnight tonight with work, and if things go the way they usually, do… i’ll have been up since 5:30 this morning and won’t be sleeping until 9am ish on saturday. I’ll try to nap but it never seems to work.

I’m having a snail as well! :D

Terri HarpLady

Always glad to encourage your happiness, my dear tea sister!
BTW, I think our pumpkin ginger tea is almost ready for pickup.
How ugh am I sending to you, half a lb?

Sil

LOL we’ll need to figure that out. I know we have to send some to dexter…sooo maybe not a whole half pound to me haha. Or you can um i dunno…send part in the next box and the other part later?

Terri HarpLady

She is packing it up in 2 8oz bags, so I figured 1 for you, one for me, LOL

Dexter

I know it’s precious, but will buy off of you whatever you are willing to part with. Just excited to get to try some of this. :)))

Sil

I’ll share mine with Dexter terri, was part of my plan anyway lol

I am not familiar with snail teas but see them a lot, how do they relate to assam? I am about to finish off some of that so I can buy something new!

Sil

that’s a tough one, since i’ve had such a wide variety of assams, whose flavour profiles were incredibly different from one another lol

bizbee1

yes how does a line relate to a cat or something! Oh well I’ll just have tot try some of both

Kittenna

Pumpkin ginger tea?! Custom blend from someone?

Sil

K – it’s the one from travelling tea that terri and i fell in love with last year.

Kittenna

No memory of that, but that’s ok! Was curious :D

Kittenna

Thanks :) Looks like that was during a time I was not reading notes, given that I don’t have a single like on any of your/Terri’s notes.

drank Assam Secret Garden by RiverTea

finished this off this morning and while it was a decent cup once i figured out how to brew it, i much preferred it as a black iced tea. Iced it had that great balance for me. I’d get this again, but with the intent of having it iced over the summer.

This one is delicious people. better tasting note to come when i can be doing it as i’m drinking the tea…but i drank this one up super quickly and kept trying to go back for more when my travel mug was empty haha

dear verdant. please get the preorders in asap…unless they’re in and you just didn’t say anything and it’s on it’s way…. but i doubt it.

Ost

Really does feel like it’s taking forever. And now they are sending emails about new teas available. I am dying to try what I pre-ordered!

Sil

yeah… i’m a little worried because the last preorder, i didn’t have enough to last me until my preorder showed up…and even though i preordered again, i’d technically be out if terri hadn’t given me more of hers… soooo yeah.

Ost

How much did you preorder?

Sil

uh only 4oz… going to have to pick up another 4 when it lands i think…or 8…

Ost

Holy Shanghai. That’s a lot of tea. Heh-well hope you enjoy it! :P

drank Spring Fruit by TeaGschwendner
5401 tasting notes

yum. I might prefer this to the actual caramel tea from tea g…only because i am really liking the contrast of the sourish fruit versus the sweetness of the caramel. Really glad i pulled this out of the cupboard to try tonight.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
