5775 Tasting Notes
Bear with me sent this one my way and i’m pretty sure his words were “you won’t like it” haha Funnily enough, i actually liked this one more than the cardamon black hat i also had. Not enough to hold on to it and be a greedy guts, but i did enjoy my cup with breakfast this morning :) thanks Bear with me!
Apparently i’ve had this one before. This cup comes from omgsrsly and today i’m finding it a much lovelier cup than when i previously had it. The berries add just the right “something” to this blend taking it from a really nice black tea to a tasty fruit black blend. thanks madam! always nice to revisit teas!
Another from kittenna this is a cinnamon tea….not getting much pear though. I didn’t dislike this base as much as i usually do with frank’s teas…but it’s still not delivering on what it promises to be. This is really just a decent cinnamon tea, with a slightly “something” taste in the background that mutes the cinnamon a little. Still happy to try it and enjoyed the cup tonight…just not what i wanted it to be.
Final Count: 102
Kittenna dropped this one off with me, but i feel like this is from omgsrsly’s bag. I had a couple steepings of this one tonight and i am a fan! Again, an oolong that i am a fan of. I like this a lot better than the tamarind pop whatever tea that stacy made, though i didn’t hate that one. :) Christmas evening tea! deeeelicious!
I’m super glad that this was another tea that wasn’t for me given HI’s notoriously awful customer service. Kittenna share this one with me and while i DO like the flavour blending of this one, i cannot get past the tea base that HI uses. It’s like a lot of 52 tea black tea bases – just doesn’t add much to the tea and the undernotes in the tea just don’t work. Thanks so much for the share though Kittenna! always appreciate trying new teas!
kittenna shared this one with me via the free samples this company was giving away. I’m pretty sure her words were “this one is…weird” lol I’m inclined to agree. while this might work for some, this one doesn’t work for me. The smell is all wrong for me – i didn’t brew it in the paper but it still has a bleachy, musty weird smell to me. Initial sips are a taste that also doesn’t jive with what i’m looking for in a tea.
I appreciate the share, and i’m glad some folks are enjoying this one, but it’s just not for me!
noms! this one is from kittenna and i was super glad to get a sample of this. I missed being able to order this one which made me super sad. I’m glad i was right to want this one as it’s fantastic. I love the smoke and the banana and it makes me happy. The maple is really in the aftertaste, and i added just a few drops to the last half of my cup to see what that would do – amaaazing! lol I really did love this cup! Thanks so much for sharing kittenna!
