5351 Tasting Notes
backlogging from yesterday. Love this one with a little cacao added to it when i want a more indulgent treat. :) I am nearly to the end of my supply…then, thankfully it’s on to the excess that terri gave me…which i’m lucky she did because even though i preordered, it’s delayed and so who knows when my precious will be back….contemplating another order already just in case haha
mmmmm pulled this one out of the cupboard tonight because after a month with no real tea drinking time, i want things that i enjoy in the evening. I still really enjoy this one, though it appears that the sweet spot this time around is at about 8 mins. I know with earlier batches it was 12 ish so maybe it’s because it’s fresh. Still loving this one as an evening substitute for vanilla citrus spice. Today was a good “work from home but not too much,” day since i’ve got to go to work tomorrow and friday.
a nice tasty cup of this tonight while watching a rare three episodes of GOT tonight with my other half. He doesn’t watch much tv so i’m lucky if we do two episodes in an evening! I think he’s feeling generous after not having me around for 6-7 wks lol
I really like this one, especially in the evening with a splash of honey. I much preferred this one over the other david’s herbal i had earlier. :)
if you’re going to drink one damn fine tea…you might as well drink a second! :) I am taking a few moments out of my day to try and plan a vacation in November. My other half can’t get away in October as he’s looking after our friend’s child M-F but November should be doable, and much needed after all the travelling i’ve had to do for work sept/oct.
I think there’s a little of the ginger from the last cup of tea that seeped in to this cup, so it’s not the best cup of tiger tea that i’ve had, but that’s on ME not the tea :)
mmm this is an interesting one. Nothing i need to restoack (Sorry David’s) but it will be fine to drink until i’m done my little sample. The mint in this one is refreshing, and the citrusy notes that go along with it are quite nice. A little honey added to this really brought the flavours together a little better. Nice for a cooler afternoon.
I’m not sure how i feel about this one. I really like the ginger and the pear flavour…but there’s a sweetness or something underlying the flavours that isn’t sitting well with me. I’m going to take a pause on this one and try it again once i’m 100% better and see if that helps in case it’s just because i’m not feeling well.
i think i prefer the other variation on this theme from this morning. this one is less…just “less” the cup isn’t as strong and to me it’s lacking in the flavour that the other cup was. It’s still a nice cup, and i’m glad terri shared it with me but overall, i’d reach for the other YS tea before this one :)
Since Stacy is going to be leaving the tea scene, i thought it might be nice to pull out the last little bit of this. I have enough for maybe another cup after this one and I’ll be enjoying it as i celebrate having been fortunate enough to begin my tea journey when Butiki was still around. Thanks for so many awesome teas Stacy!
