5600 Tasting Notes
this is a smelly tea that gives me a headache lol so it’s been lockewd away in a tupperware container since kittenna was kind enough to let me steal a sample haha.
This is…..interesting lol I actually wish the smell wasn’t so intense because i think? it’s a blend i’d really enjoy drinking. it’s just hard to tell since the smell is telling my taste buds conflicting things.
This is a sweet blend with just a hint of chai spicey flavour at the end of the cup. I would drink this again but for the smell of the tea that I just can’t get past. It’s quite delicious.
Apparently i’ve never bother to log this. I’m over this tea. Actually for the most part i’m over the tea emporium as i always find that there’s a strange taste in most of their blends. Take the roooibod for example. I actually enjoy rooibos, but theirs? it’s got this weird taste that overpowers nearly every other flavour that’s going on in the cup. Soooo thanks, but no thanks. this is like drinking a cup of rooibos.
Sipdown! Drinking a random tea that i’m too lazy to log since it’s a sipdown. Victorian Afternoon Tea from Kittenna This is a bit astringent for me but it’s overall not a bad little tea. Certainly glad i got the chance to try it :)
Edit: Also forgot the rating on this is linked to all my entries haha this would be about a 73 :)
oh man. So i cold brewed this one just for kicks. I am digging the cold brew quite a bit! Unsweetned there was a bit of pear hanging out in the background, and then with a little bit of sugar added to this, there’s more going on. Another white tea, so not my go to tea, but this isn’t half bad. It’s still not my perfect pear tea but it’s a refreshing tea nonethless that has a really nice base that it “pears” well with haha.
The tastebuds they are a changing! I’m less of a fan of this one when I first had it. Now, part of that may be the cold brew that i decided to try with this one but i’m just not loving it as much anymore. I’ll try and have a cup of it hot later but i’m just not feeling it. That’s likely because of the whole white tea thing i suspect since it’s just kind of a wimpy tea lol
Backlog from yesterday! I really enjoyed this one though i’m not sure what i was expecting. The strawberry taste is really nice and the “champagne” part of this tea is really delicious. I think in my head this was a strawberry cream so it was a little disconnected drinking it but once i was able to remind my brain that this was champagne! it was quite delicious. I’m really glad that i have a larger pouch of this one. Chalk one up to Cuppa tea for a great first impression!
backlog from yesterday day. I wanted to try this since my mom picked this up without asking me when she was in london haha. I have to say, i can get behind this as an every day morning tea. There isn’t a lot going on with it but it’s bold and black without being too bitter/astringent. I don’t get too much malty, but that’s maybe because i’m used to some of verdant’s malty teas heh. overall not too shabby, but also not a good tea for anyone who doesn’t like robust blacks.
Morning smoothie today with a splash of vanilla matcha! I’ve got a long day today followed by a quick check in with the doctor to see how blind i’ve gotten this year lol. Someday my prescription will normalise and i’ll be able to buy multiple pairs of glasses to suit my every mood. someday lol
Kicked off my day with this and so far my mouth is behaving enough to let me have some tea. Here’s hoping that keeps up! Enjoying this one as i haven’t had it in a while. I’m doing my best not to open any new matchas just yet so that i force myself to finish up the older ones that i have on the go. Just a few more left to drink up, then i need to find out if i’m actually supposed to drink my friends matcha that’s staying at my house while she’s pregnant lol.
Tried to cold brew this the other night because a recent hot brew of this just wasn’t as tasty as i remember it being. I think that i’m over this tea haha. I do really like the strawberry taste but there’s something in the brew that i’m not a fan of anymore. Sweeetned it’s nice and i can see enjoying this in the summer so i may tuck this away until it’s hotter :)
