4875 Tasting Notes

Had this in the morning and it was an ok cup. I may have steeped it a little long or had too much leaf so i’ll need to give it another shot. Perhaps with a bit of milk/cream in it. It was a bit bitter for my tastes.

SIPDOWN!

I had this this morning while try to get the dishes done from last night. As i suspected, this is a really nice COLD brew tea. I much prefer it that way over hot. I think this would be pretty darn good in the summer. I may pick some up then to try that out. maybe with a splash of lemonade :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Shared this with a friend last night – it was her first time seeing all my tea and man she was overwhelmed! it made me giggle just a bit. opened up this one for her to try and it was as delicious as i remember it being the last time!

I giggled a little just reading about it. Hope she wasn’t wondering who is this crazy person :)

Sil

Oh she’s pretty sure I’m insane now. :) but she made 3 cups of various matchas last night and placed a red leaf order lol

I had this last night while friends were over. It’s an average cup of tea, nothing to write home about but it was a nice complement to the meal we had. I’d drink this again but it doesn’t need to be a staple in the house. I’m happy to have tried it though.

Cold brew from yesterday and man this was tasty! It really like this tea brewed cold, though hot isn’t so bad either :) I like the way it’s like a creamy lemon cup of delicious but not overly sweet. It’s not a lemon tea..but really, it’s lemon chiffon :)

Della Terra Teas

I am glad you enjoyed. We now have Lime Chiffon:)

Sil

oh neat! I’ll have to check that out. I haven’t yet found a lime tea that i really love.

Another one from yesterday that I didn’t get a chance to take notes on. I do recall this being a very mellow tasting tea that didn’t necessarily smack me in the face but was quite tasty. Rating later once i try it again.

The problem with work being busy is that I don’t have time to log things tight away and then forget what the tea was like, especially if it’s a new one. :( From what i recall of this one it was enjoyable but not mind blowing. I’ll leave off rating this one until i have a chance to drink it again and write a log right away.

drank Blueberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Today’s morning smoothie which was finished soooo long ago is brought to you by blueberry! (and caramel). I am really digging the blueberry matcha when I mix it up with other flavours like caramel or cheesecake or vanilla etc. Something about adding a splash of the other matcha flavours to the blueberry makes it explode! woot!

So I have to say, nothing says YES PLEASE! Like a cup of cold brewed tea after a work out. It’s one thing to have water while i’m working out, but i really like getting to come home and pull whatever i’m cold brewing out of the fridge to have as an official end to my gym time.

This one is better cold than hot in my opinion :) I’ll have to remember that in the summer

Iced 8 min or more

I received this sample from the Persimmon Tree today and figured I’d get right down to business with checking it out. I love a good black and rather enjoy vanilla teas as well these days!

I steeped this one for 4 mins – and there is no real sense of the coconut in this one which makes me a happy camper. Instead what develops as I sip this one is a black tea with a subtle vanilla flavour to it. This is not a vanilla tea, rather is it a black tea with vanilla notes to it. I quite enjoy that change as I’m used to OMG vanilla teas that lose the actual taste of the tea.

In other news…I’m trying this whole blogging thing out. I’m TRYING to get around to writing something every day, though that’s certainly not really happening yet. someday though…someday. I might even manage to figure out where i’m going with it.

So how did the blogging thing work out for you? I just recently re-joined Dreamwidth so I can go on and on about nothing and post cat pictures. You know, the important things. :D

Sil

It worked….and then I just got too busy. :(

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.
