3678 Tasting Notes
My other morning tea, thankful that i brought two with me today since i haven’t had 5 mins to get food or anything. What a day! first day back with all the people who have been off for a week or two. I am really loving this today. It seems so much roastier and chocolatey. I may have to think about restocking this once i’m finished with my stash :)
this was my tea this morning to deal with the slushy, frozen mess out there. I only have maybe 5 more days worth of this tea left so i’m trying to savour them while also being excited for an excuse to place another order during the next sale haha. Added a bit of maple to this one just for fun and had a great morning tea :)
sipdown! (189) thanks for sending this my way Missb especially since it likely would have been one i picked out for my first order with this company (which will happen someday but later rather than sooner since my cupboard just went up!) I have to agree with missb that this is pretty close to mango “real” flavour. What i didn’t count on, was the smell. There’s something slightly cloying in the smell that is not sitting well with me. I an enjoying the tea for what it is but i’m not sure the smell wouldn’t get to me after a while. Not sure if i’ll order this myself but i’m glad i tried it. It’s a tea i could have in my cupboard now and again i think – one of the rotating teas :)
sipdown! (190) Another one from Dexter who very nicely surprised me with samples of all 12 of the herbal infusions teas as i missed being able to grab them thanks to a very long day of work.
I couldn’t tell you what’s in this blend. I drank it unthinkingly while browsing adagio fan blends (curse you cavo!). What that does tell me is that i enjoyed it quite a bit! it wasn’t overly sweet, wasn’t a hibiscusy blend..though the smell started to get to me after a while. I’d actually like to try this one cold brewed sometime. thanks dexter!
Another one from dexter! :) I would have gotten through all 12 days today i think except for getting a late start on them heh. This one is quite tasty, though the licorice makes it a little sweet for my tastes. If i can find a way to dial it back a bit, i think it will be even tastier. Maybe i can add my 52 shamrock tea to it heh. If you don’t like licorice, stay away from this one. There’s a creamy, lemon, mint licorice flavour going on here. I’m not sure i’d call it candycane..but it’s not too shabby :)
Another one from dexter! I’m trying to switch over to some of my caffeine free teas on the off chance it decides to bug me tonight. I’ve got a meeting in the morning with a vendor so i need to be on my game!
This one reminds me a lot of the pumpkin rooibos from tealux i think it was. Sadly that also means that it reminds me of melon. For whatever reason it’s like honey dew/cantaloupe sort of melon. Enjoyable but man i miss the pumpkin tea terri sent me haha
sipdown! (191) had a cup of this with dinner tonight – roast beef, rice, green beans and apple crisp for dessert! Even better? we watched the newest sherlock episode and it was fabulous! I had such a fantastic time watching it. It’s like everyone was on their game. I love how mycroft got a bit of depth to him. no spoilers here, but it was just a fantastically great time! and this tea was a lovely accompaniment.
