5370 Tasting Notes
Dear terri – you soooo owe me lol Pretty sure kittenna and i split a half an ounce of this, so there’s not much left but i WILL be adding this to our swap box. Though i’m tempted to “forget” since i’ve probably only got enough for one more of my cups after today’s steeps/resteeps lol
I kid of course! well, about the forgetting bit. I’m still slightly curious as to why i didn’t buy more of this when Stacy was running low, but i’ll chalk that up to being overwhelmed with tea! On the plus side, she’ll be bringing it back, so that’s something to look forward to :)
This was the perfect tea to start my day today after the week i’ve had. While i’m all for continuing my quest to meet up with dinosara’s sipdowns, i also have tea that i just want to drink even though i’m nowhere close to a sipdown! I’m thinking…work from home day tomorrow to put a big dent in things? :)
This tea? If you’re a fan of blacks, go buy some when it’s back in stock in July/August. it’s sweet but not and malty but not and just..yeah that’s about all i’ve got in me this morning. I keep waiting for something to happen at work.
mini sipdown! not that it counts because i have an entire unopened package of this in the cupboard however it’s nice to get one tin cleaned out. I’m still really enjoying this one though i often prefer it as an addition to other flavours. Problem is that at the moment, until i start opening new packages, most of the flavours i have on deck are the ones that i like mixing lol at least this one is pretty enjoyable on it’s own as a smoothie.
Last tea of the night before I crawl in to bed and hope for just one day tomorrow that doesn’t have issues and problems. I probably shouldn’t behaving this with jr mints, dillpickle dip and regular chips and cinnamon raisin toast…but I am. So there. And no, I’m not pregnant lol just stressed :) I ate real dinner earlier so Nyah!
This Isn’t a bad blend. Holding off rating it since I’ve got lots of flavours going on here at the same time, but I am feeling the ginger and the rooibos….but there’s also a sweetness to it that must be the pineapple, though it doesn’t taste like that. I have a feeling as well, that I could have steeped this for longer to get even more of the ginger to come out. Ill have to try that next time.
Edit….also final tea count of the day…265. 11 days to go. Lol
SIPDOWN! You know… i’m not sure how i feel about this tea. I often wish David’s Tea would just cut it out with all the fruit chunks that hide the TEA! this tea has more tea in it than your average tea from Davids (fruit tea that is) but it’s still not a lot of tea.
So how do i feel about this? well it smells delicious! but drinking it is kinda like drinking a cranberry apple tea. The pear i only really get if i breath in the vapors coming off the mug. So it’s kinda fail in my opinion as a pear tea. it’s a cranberry tea. one that might be tasty as a cold brew though… hmm yeah maybe.
im a fan of this one, though i likely shouldn’t be today since lack of food today will likely lend itself to caffeine hitting me pretty hard lol. I really want to add just a bit of cream to this to really through the flavours together. I’m not getting the spiciness that kittenna did but i AM getting that espresso flavour that is blending really nicely with the black base. I think i steeped this one a little longer than 3 mins by accident and still there’s no bitterness or astringency so that’s a positive.
I think this could be one of those teas that I have in my cupboard every so often when i need a more coffee like creamy experience.
SIPDOWN! mwahahaha my cupboard goes down, kittenna’s goes up lol Just enough in the bag Rarietea and i split to have a cup for me and a cup for kittenna. Although i reaaaaallly don’t like coconut all that much in teas, we tried this one at the tea festival and it wasn’t too bad. So it made it’s way into our mini purchase since raritea looooveeeesss the coconut!
Now that i’m having it at home, it’s not tooo bad. I am certainly good with this one cup but only because i’m drinking a tea that tastes like tanning lotion smells like. delicious! but oddly weird as well :)
soooo many teas that i’m so close to sipdown with. Curse you dinosara! lol I managed to get a steep in of this in the afternoon in the 5 mins i took to go pee. I really am sick of all the issues we’ve been having since it means not only can i not do my own work but i also haven’t gotten around to the work of the person i’m backing up.
This was a really pleasant cup of tea that was much needed. Best part about today? (not) I got all the way home…12 hours after i arrived at work, and there are MORE FREAKIN ISSUES! gimme a break. thank god i’m home with my tea.
