3083 Tasting Notes
sipdown. nope nope nope nope nope nope nope. I could tell this wouldn’t be a tea for me as soon as i cut into the package. but i tried. and no. the rest is going in a box for terri. and tony. ’cause this is a tea for him….not me. but if you love earl greys…IGNORE MY REVIEW! since i suspect that many a fan of the EG would like this.
note to self. When you’re exausted and have trouble forming coherent sentences…stay away from new teas that you won’t be able to write about well anyway because you’re mentally challenged from the sheer stupidity of the world you work in. That about sums up my evening. This was from dinosara and i solemly swear that i am up to no good…oh wait i mean that i’ll write a better review the next time i write it. ;)
sipdown! sooo that makes 2 today? so i caught up from yesterday but have made no progress to getting my cupboard back to where it was before my samples came in…and then my swap from dexter…not to mention that i have 4 other packages yet to come in the mail (no terri…today i didn’t get my TTC order..i’m jealous of yours…but you should be jealous of my tea from dexter. so there. neeener neener boo boo).
this tea? uneventful. I think i’m not a huge fan of golden needle, rather than it being this tea if that makes sense? It’s a decent enough tea but there was no pizzazz…no fire! no deep radiating buurning deliciousness to wake me up, knock me over and steal the keys to my car…if i had one.
so yeah…decent, but not my favourite sort of tea. :)
this is not a sipdown. and thank goodness because i had it today….the fact that the other half is on my table is proof. but all i remember is being happy to have tea. and drinking it. and then it being gone. so better notes to come i promise…though at this rate, that may not happen until 2014.
Yes…this is in my cupboard. It’s an oolong. and i LOVE IT! Stacy sent me a sample of this a while back and after drinking it, i tried a couple other pineapple oolongs and this one was at the top of my list! So i bought some more…and then forgot about it…until this morning. YUUUUUUUUMMMMYYYYY!
sipdown! and i’m feeling proud of myself since this is a 52 tea sipdown. Long day of more issues and i’m currently taking a 5 min break to get my tea logs into the system before i forget even more…but i had this in the morning as a latte…it’s better as NOT one, but it was still pretty decent :)
this tea makes me happy. I always love it when i can wrangle a little more out of tattooed_tea! had this cold brewed tonight and it is helping to make a no, good, very bad, day better.
Edit: 224 – no sipdowns today and i added 4 samples from Yezi tea to my cupboard. Oh well…two tomorrow instead?
whoops…totally didn’t realise i’d had this before..but thank you dinosara for sending this my way. I love this version from damman, especially since it’s not a super sickingly sweet caramel toffee tea. the black base isn’t lost and this is a delicious, delicious tea. On my must order list!
I had this cold brew when i got home tonight. I may not get any sipdowns today because of work but at least i’m having some of my older teas and working on my other goals. Let’s not consider i may have received 4 samples in the mail today and uh delivery slip for some package at the mail somewhere…
YUM! thank you Little Red Cup for this generous sample! This was the tea to kick off my morning at work and man it did the trick. As with all keemuns, i added a splash of maple syrup and it was so very delicious with this tea. It’s a little smokier than some keemuns that i’ve had but since i’m ok with smokey, i was ok with this tea! YUM!that’s about all i remember from this morning. deliciously smokey and yummy and yay!
